Hello, I have an HP EliteBook 8460p. (Sorry if my post seems "Noobish", I just joined.)
I recently purchased it, and have since found out that it will not recognize the Graphics card, and will
instead use Windows' default "Standard VGA Adapter". I have downloaded multiple drivers, but none seem to work. As such, I cannot play games that require "OpenGL Acceleration". Would very much appreciate help.

Thanks in advance.

Hello folks.My elitebook worked perfectly until one morning when I turned it on. On pressing the power button, the power indicator shows a white light, then the WiFi LED comes on (red and quickly changes to blue) and the HDD indicator comes on (red). The WiFi indicator also comes on. After a few seconds, the sleep indicator comes on and the laptop goes off. No display, no hdd sound, no fan sound, just the above. Please help me out.Thanks!

I Have an Elitebook 8530P that will no longer power on when I try and switch on.After pressing the power button the Battery LED turns on as blue, then the wireless LE D and Disk Activity LED burn Amber for 3 seconds, while the Battery LED switches off.Then the Wirelss and Disk LED's switch off, the Battery LED turns on White for 1 second. Then it turns off, the Info light next to the power switch tuns on for about 5 seconds switches off and nothing more happens.This ocurrs when connected to the AC (which I know works as it is charging my other HP Laptop) or under battery.Any help would be appreciated. I have cleaned the dust out of the cpu fan, I have tried a hard reset and taken the memory out replaced it with other modules as well as trying another HDD.TThanksAndy

A:HP Elitebook 8530P will not power on

Hi, 1. When you power the unit On, Do the Caps and the Num Lock Lights blink?.. If yes, how many times? ( Pattern is 1 blink per second and a 3 second pause)2. Disconnect the AC Adapter and the Battery. Hold Power Button down for 1 minute. Connect only the AC Adapter. Any activity on the unit?3. Try only the battery with Step 2. If the unit is dead after all this, it is safe to assume that we have an issue with the system board.You could try swapping out the memory config and removing the HDD and see if there is any difference. Keep us posted!

I have a brand new HP Elitebook 745 G3 that doesn't power on. I've tried 3 known working AC adapters, unseated/reseated the battery, held down the power button for 15-30 seconds (to discharge power) without the battery or power connected, replaced the RAM (there's on 8GB module installed), replaced the power button board, and replaced the sytem board twice. Whenever an AC adapter is connected, the power and CAPS lock buttons flash continuously (white). The mute and wirless LEDs are solid (wireless LED is amber and the mute botton is white). The fan spins for a second and then it goes out.I've unseated/reseated the hard drive and removed the wireless module.

I replaced my 2 TB magnetic disk with an OWC 2 TB SSD.  When I powered up the laptop, the power button LED glowed for a few seconds and then the light went out and the machine was powered off.  If I remove the SSD, the laptop powers up.  If I install the old magnetic drive, the laptop powers up.  I have tested the SSD with an external USB dock.  The drive is recognized and is partitionable.  For whatever reason, the 8770w cannot recognize the SDD at power up time.  I'm mystified.

Hello,i have problem with my EliteBook 8560w(With dual boot Windows 7 64bit and Linux Mint 17.3 if its important). When I plug it in AC charger it turns on by itself and after 2-3 sec. it shutsdown without warning. After shutting down the laptop can't be turned on using the power button. This occurs everytime I plug it in the charger. I get the same problem when I place the battery. I tryed the following: removing RAM, removing HDD, removing BIOS battery. Everytime the laptop turns on itself immediately when plugged in then shuts down after 2-3 sec. Its not heating problem either, because fan check is passing and I have recently replaced heatsink paste.When I plugged off the power button from the motherboard, the laptop stopped turning on when pluged in, but there is no way I can turn it on. Any suggestions what can be the cause of the problem and what solution can I try?Thank you in advance.

Hi all. First time posting here. I have a Elitebook 8460p that works fine apart from the power button not working.Pressing the power button does nothing at all. No blinking lights etc.I'm currently turning it on via the info button which boots into Quickweb. From there I use the Quickweb menu to boot into windows.Like I said it runs fine. I have it plugged into my TV and use it most of the day for games and the web.The battery died ages ago so I just run it on AC power with it removed. All I can think is something has broken around the button area.Has anyone had issues with the power button on these laptops before?

The tips I got with this Kensington 33197 power adapter have numbers stenciled on them like N3, N5, N19, etc. The tips sold on their web site make no mention of the "N" numbers and have numbers like K20059, K20050, etc. and there is no cross reference.

You can also see a complete reference for "N" numbers to all the laptops they support at the above link. Again, no mention of the numbers Kensington uses on their site.

I need a cross reference for these kinds of numbers.

Kensington referred me to their telephone tech support; but, there is a language or cultural barrier that prevents their understanding what I need.

Does anyone know of such a reference?

This is a common problem (I see lots of posts)
The problem source is the [Dell] AC adapter.  PA-21 Family, 65W, P/N: NX061.  It is made in China.
I have an XPS M1330.  Using Dell after warranty service, replaced the Mother Board twice, replaced the battery twice, replaced the AC adapter twice - not fixing it.
Turns out the power warning message is very informative.  It states "Please connect a Dell 65W AC adapter or greater for best system performance".  So, I plugged in my Dell 95W adapter - WOW Problem Solved.
A lab test of my new Dell 65W AC adapter shows it to be 64.6 watts.  If this unit gets hot (like after several hours of use), it may not put out the full 65 watts - the system may not recognize the adapter, it may power the system ok, but won't charge the battery.
These units burn out after only a few months of use. Their cables are too fragile. If Dell's or their supplier's Quality Control can't produce a reliable 65W product - I found seveal "Made In USA" universal adapters.
 

A:AC Adapter - Alert - "AC power adapter wattage and type cannot be determined"

Well my solution was simple.
I just removed the battery pack and powered up my notebook. Then I turned off the notebook replaced the battery pack and VOILA. The error message was gone.

For the last two weeks, every time I start my Dell INSPIRON E1705 while using the power supply I am greeted with the following message. "The AC power adapter type cannot be determined. Your system will operate slower and the battery will not charge. Please connect a Dell 90W AC adapter or higher for best system operation". I press the F1 Key and everything works fine. I've read about this on other websites and most say it's a design flaw in the power supply after the cord has been properly wound around the supply as designed. Apparently a few of the cords internal wire strands become broken and cause this message. My computer is from June 2006 and shouldn't be having this issue so early...or ever. This seems like a flaw that should have created some type of manufacturers recall since so many people are having this issue. I'm of course out of warranty, will Dell replace this free of charge?
 
`

A:Power Supply - "The AC power adapter type cannot be determined....."

You are correct, the failure is due toloss of the power supply ID signal. Sometimes this happens because of strain on the plug, which breaks the signal wire. Some even are so severe that the insulation breaks away from the plug; this is due to rough handling. The other cause is one or more of the power socket solder connections to the system board become broken. This also is related to severe handling. I have seen one case where all three power connections and three of four mechanical connections were disconnected. If the power supply is bad, a replacement will cure the problem. If not, then the socket is bad, and this will require a system board replacement. If you are experienced, you can try to resolder the connections. I am experienced and was not able to get my daughter's E6000 to work by resoldered. More recent Dells are using a replacable power connection board which is a much cheaper repair.

Radio Shack would be a good place to start although you might have to get one of their adjustable models. A Google search should also turn up something.

I recently bought a replacement power adapter for my dell e1505. The computer works but it won't charge the battery and tells me that since the computer does not recognize the charger, I need to reseat the power adapter... What does that mean?

A:Power Adapter

Hello aaronbaron,

Reseat the power adapter just means make sure the power adapter is plugged in good on the laptop and the wall outlet. I would try powering off the laptop, unplug the power cord, take the new battery out. Reinstall the new battery only and try to power on the computer. If that does not work plug in the power cord and power up with the new battery installed.

Can I use 45 Watt adapter for dell inspiron 15 5559?? I got the adapter along with the laptop when I bought it. But a warning is displayed on screen prompting me to use 65 Watt adapter... If so why 65 Watt adapter wasn't given with the laptop instead of 45 Watt?

A:Power adapter

Hi SUSMI,
The system is designed to support both 45W and 65W adapters - see the specifications here - http://dell.to/2fhPLIf
When you plug in the adapter to the system, does the adapter stay firm or does it fall off easily? Is the adapter frayed? Could you test with another power adapter if possible?
Restart the system and press f2 key to enter BIOS - check the adapter status in BIOS with and without the adapter plugged in. Also, wiggle the adapter cable at the end and see if the status changes in BIOS at any point.
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us.These are onboard diagnostics and they might possible pick some error if the hardware is not functional.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.

A:Power adapter center pin

Sounds like the Centre pin has broken away and lodged itself in the plug. I cannot tell you which is positive and which is negative with regards to the rings on the plug. Because different Manufacturers use different combinations and with that different Voltages too. Generally speaking the outside piece is the male end and the receiving plug is the female -go figure-
Hope this link works http://www.niteflux.com/BuyCables.aspx you can see what I am mentioning, obviously this is not your cable but for the example of male to female ends the description matches the pictures ( not the 'Y' cord on the link )

Also, the charge indicator light no longer works and the power icon does not show that the battery is charging, although it is.

I've updated the BIOS, restored factory power settings and tested the power adapter during startup and have the same prob with the CPU usage.

What could cause the power adapter to use 100% CPU? Please let me know if you need more info, cheers.

I also tried starting the laptop from the button on the TB15 which also works fine.
However on startup I receive an error message:
"Alert! You have attached an undersized 130W power adapter to you system, which is less than the recommended 180W power adapter" ... message carries on a bit.
Now the thing is both the TB15 power adapter and 7510 power adapter are the same (identical part number) and  are shown to be 180W output.
What's the problem here and what do I need to do ?

A:Undersized power adapter

Any one any idea on this error ? Message appears at Bios post stage... i.e. early on just after switching on.

Hi Guys,

I was hoping someone could help me out finding a power adapter for an old set of Harman Kardon speakers I have. On the back of the speakers it says ac 15v 1.1A so I assume I need an adapter that matches those settings.

Can someone plz help me out finding one that will work and is as cheap as possible.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A215-S4807. I need a new power adapter. (there appears to be a loose connection in it somewhere. It only works when I king the wire a certain way.

This adapter from Targus says that it is compatible but it is only 70W where the original was 120W.

Would the differnce in wattage present a problem in trying to use this adapter?

Thanks very much for your help.

I have an hp pavillion dv 6000 that I lost the power adapter to. My friend has an adapter for an hp pavillion dv9000 that he does not need anymore and he wants to sell it to me. I want to know if it will work with my computer. The adapter puts out 19volts 4.74 amps 90 wants max. The replacement adapters for my model (dv6000) list the power output as 18.5 volts 3.5 amps 65 watts.

I am planning on making this project myself but first I have one question. Here is the project I will be making:
http://siliconrepublic.blogspot.com.au/2011/02/arduino-based-pc-ambient-lighting.html

It says I need a 12V DC supply for powering the breadboard. When searching up for 12V DC supplies, I only get power supply's that plug into the wrong wall socket (I live in Australia).
Do I need to get something like the article suggests:
http://www.amazon.com/Garmin-AC-Veh...1KZ6/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1297231222&sr=8-2

Or can I get something such as this:
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/DC-12V-1...?pt=AU_Laptop_Accessories&hash=item336678ae52
If the first option is the only possibility, how do I get the plug to go into my wall socket?
Also, how do I get the other end plugged into the breadboard when the product just has a single plug on the end?
 

A:What type of power adapter do I need?

You can use the Ebay adaptor, the easiest way to get 2 wires is to get a socket that fits the plug, like this one :- http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/5-5-x-2-...05?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_15&hash=item4167b5b34d and solder 2 wires to that socket.

The circuit at your link uses a 2 wire plug into the breadboard, you would have to get a similar plug OR you could push bare wires into the breadboard.

OR you could cut the plug off to reveal the 2 wires but they will probably be quite thin and may not connect well if pushed into the breadboard holes.

Though I had posted this previously, but cannot find it anywhere!

Got an Altec Lansing Multimedia Computer Speaker System ACS41. Apparently they were used on a Gateway 2000 PC.
However, the power adapter was lost.
The speakers do not have any electrical specs on them regarding voltage, amps, and polarity.

Anyone have a similar set of speakers, or,
know of any way this type of info can be found out, in order to get the right power adapter for them. Do not care to fry them with an overkill. The speakers probably came with PCs running Windows 98SE, or Windows Millennium.

Prefer not to go to Radio Shack, they normally are rather expensive, and the people who own this do not want to go that route.

Thanks for the help.

My neighbour was given a second-hand computer and asked for my help setting it up.

It is a Dell Optiplex 755 running Win7.

Currently installed graphics is NVidia Quadro FX 3500.

I looked up the service tag and this is not the original card (Original was ATI HD2400XT).

The issue I have is that the FX3500 is an 80W card, with the PCI-E slot having a max of 75W. On booting I get low power warnings from the NVidia card.

The card has a 6 pin PCI-E connection available for the additional power, but the PSU has no PCI-E power cable.

The only free power cables from the PSU are a couple of 15pin SATA cables. I have seen adapter cables for 15pin SATA to 6 pin PCI-E. Are these any good for my situation?

If not, what are the alternatives? New PSU? Different GFX card?

The Yoga 3 Pro power adapter looks like a normal USB brick, and the cord looks like USB, except with a kink in the connector at the Yoga 3 Pro end. Can I charge my phone or tablet with it?

A:What's with the Yoga 3 Pro power adapter - it's a ...

Yes the Yoga 3 Pro power adapter is a USB charger too!
 

How does it work?

The special "fool proof" charging cord has two extra pins on the AC adapter end and two extra pins on the Yoga 3 Pro end. The extra pins only make a connection when the fool proof cord is plugged in to the Lenovo charger and the Yoga 3 Pro. When a regular USB cord is plugged into either the charger or the Yoga 3 Pro, it makes a regular USB connection.
 

Can I charge the Yoga 3 Pro with any USB charger?

No. The Yoga 3 Pro requires 2A at 20V, which is what the provided 40W Lenovo AC adapter supplies.
 

Can I charge a USB device with the Yoga 3 Pro AC adapter?

Absolutely. In addition to 2A at 20, the Yoga 3 Pro AC adapter supplies 2A at 5.2V (10.4W), enough to charge a phone or tablet. Works for iPad.
 

Where can I buy spare AC adapters and cords?

AC adapters with cords are sold in the accessories section of the Lenovo store.
 

Where do I find the part numbers for the AC adapter and cord?

Look for AC Adapters In the PDF Yoga 3 Pro Hardware Maintenance Manual.
 

What are the USB specs of the Yoga 3 charging port?

It's a USB 2.0 port. It provides enough power to charge an iPhone, but not enough to charge an iPad. If you want to charge an iPad, try the USB 3.0 port on the right of the Yoga 3 Pro.

I have a 90w power adapter from an older notebook that will work with my HP DV5-1015nr. I transport my notebook between home and office. I'd like to utilize the older power brick, so that I won't need to transport a power brick back and forth. The tips on both adapters, of course, are of a different diameter.      My multi-tester identifies that the tip is hot for both adapters. The problem I have is that the older power brick has two wires: core wire (+) and shield (-), and the newer power adapter has three wires: shield that is connected to the core of tip (+), black that is connected to outer part of cylindrical shaft that must be the ground, and white connected to inner part of cylindrical shaft (also negative?). So do the black and white wires on the newer adapter need to be soldered to the shield on the older one?   

A:Wiring for Power adapter?

Just a guess, since it is 90watt, they may have run the extra wire to carry the load, shield is always much larger than center tip wire. Did you measure voltage and ploarity of all three connections with the brick plugged in? Tip is always + and ouside is always - on a HP, not sure what the third is, see if there is any voltage on it, It could also be some sort of sensor wire for the charging system on the mobo. Better to buy another adapter than smoke the motherboard on the lappy taking a chance. If you want to chance it just connect the two wires that are on the center and outside. Leave the 3rd odd one unconnected. probably can be found used for cheap.

I have a 20 pin motherboard but the power supply I have available has a 24 pin connector. I've read that you can simply plug them together by offsetting the 24 pin one but so far I don't see that working at all (and 'never the twain shall meet', so to speak). I've found adapters but they all say something akin to

'allows you to connect your existing 20 pin power supply to your new 24-pin compatible motherboard'

You can use it the other way around, correct?

I have a Inspiron 15 3541 touch screen and "misplaced" my power cord and adapter. I'm using a Dell adapter from a different computer, but when I turned on my laptop, I get a message requiring a system or admin password even before it boots up. Is this because of the different adapter? How many pins did my adapter have? What problems does a different adapter create?

A:Power adapter pins

The password that is showing up before your computer boots sounds like there is a BIOS password set on the computer.  Unfortunately if you don't remember that password then you are probably stuck.  You can probably go online and search and see if there is a way to reset BIOS on the laptop and get it to default and remove the password that is set on it.  If there is a hard drive password though then the only way to remove that if you forgot it is to install a new hard drive as the password will follow the drive, not the computer.
Your power supply should have only 1 pin.  Dell used the same adapter for their computers for a while, they come in different wattage though and if you use an adapter that is too low then it may not be able to charge the battery while you use it or at all.  If the plug fits and it is a Dell charger you should be okay to at least get the computer up and running.  If it is a low wattage charger and the setting is set in BIOS (usually is by default) you'll get a message from your computer telling you that the charger isn't powerful enough to charge the battery while in use.

My friend has just traveled down to my house for a week but has foolishly forgot his plug for the power socket on his power adapter. He uses this for his computer. Again unrelated becuase it is an Apple 45W MagSafe2 adapter.

The adapter is 100-240V~ 1A

These are both for input.

Years back, being cheaper than external drives I had bought an internal drive as a backup. I also bought an USB to IDE/SATA kit in order to make the backup with. Well the kit seemed to be problematic and so I scrapped it and bought another one only to find the same problem.
it then occurred to me that perhaps the problem is that though the kit has a power supply the HD did not have power going to it--it only attached to the 2 SATA parts.
So I was wondering, how do I get power to it? What is the adapter for such a thing called and does it exist?

The connector on the card looks like a 4 pin Molex (traditionally used on PATA drives).

If you have any Molex connectors, the normal way would be to use a Y adapter:

Hi there forum,

I just bagged an Lcd monitor for nowt but have no power supply for it.
The rear panel says 12V 3.0A DC power supply, but I can't find any of this type, I've tried Maplin, play.com etc and all they suggest is 300mA, now I thought 3.0 A was 3000mA?

Do I need to go back to electronic school basics?
Thanks

Hi,

I bought a Linksys WRT160n v3 wireless router sometime back. I had considerable trouble in just turning it on. There is an FAQ article by CISCO which says that you have to first plug in the adapter in a power outlet and ONLY afterwards plug the other end into the wireless router. I tried that; it works most of the time (>90%) but not always!! The wireless router turns on only by hit and trial in 10% of the cases.

Adding to my woes is that there was a power cut yesterday and after that I am unable to power on this wireless router at all. I have been fiddling with it for hours but with no luck. Is the wireless router dead? Is there anything that I can do to verify the adapter/ router's sanity?

Is anyone facing similar problem?

A:EVGA adapter provides more power to your PCIe bus

I'm not sure. I had thought that was what the power connectors on the PCI-E devices (ex: graphics card) were for.

I can also see someone possibly frying their motherboard if this adapter was connected incorrectly in the PCI-E slot.

I need a new AC power adapter for my monitors. I have three Acer S243HL LED monitors, and the power adapters basically exploded a few months ago (I heard a loud pop, followed by the monitor just turned off). I tested it with a working power adapter (the one I'm using now for my only functional monitor), and the monitor itself is fine. The power adapter is not.

Anyways, to prevent this happening in the future, could someone recommend to me a high quality power adapter which won't short out on me?

The power adapter that I'm using looks like this

A:Looking for a high quality AC power adapter

I think there is no such thing as a high end power adapter, you could buy one with goldplated pins and from a quality brand, but the thing is not to let them get very hot and take good care of them, apart from that i dont know any

I just bought a wireless highpower adapter since my room is so far away from my router/modem.

I used the software that came along with my adapter to scan the surrounding network, but it didn't pick up on my net work no matter how many time I scan it. But it does pick up a few of my neighbors' wifi signal.

But I could connect completely fine with my laptop itself.

OS: Window 8
adapter: Prolink PAN2001

I bought a Vostro 1540 laptop on EBay and it came with a Model LA90PS0-00, PA-10 family, DF266 power adapter. It powers the laptop o.k. but does not charge the battery.  Is this the correct power supply for this laptop?

A:Vostro 1540 AC Power Adapter

Hi NO1BOOMER 
Thanks for writing to us. 
DF266 is a 90 w adapter, but the vostro 1540 goes only with 65 w adapter. 
Its an incorrect adapter. 
Regards
