Q: I need help finding a replacement power adapter fo...

The section of my adapter has frayed near the point where it plugs in and I have to practically baby it to keep it charging. This is a huge problem, especially considering that I'm planning to go off to college soon. There's so many counterfeits on the market, and I'm afraid that I may get one that'll just give me grief. In middle of the school year I may not even have enough to buy a new cord, so this is a big deal for me. Yes, I have looked it up and what came up were forums about how to avoid counterfeits, which served to confuse me. While they recommend that buyers should avoid "marketplace" retailers like Amazon, Sears and Ebay, they don't exactly say where exactly to go. There's a bunch of shady websites besides these retailers and I'm not really finding anything too solid at a more legitmate distribution channel... Of course I'm willing to spend some money. It's just that the 40-70$ price tag I've been seeing for the cord on relatively trustworthy sites seems steep, especially considering that I got the laptop (power cord incl.) for 200$ a few years back. It hasn't given me any trouble, but it's hard to justify spending ~25% of its original value on a cord. I want to spend something from 20 to 30$. Thanks for the help!

Lenovo does not actually make the power supplies themselves, they buy them from the manufacturer shown below (taken from page 87 of Lenovo G50-45 Hardware Maintenance Manual) , so just about any quality 45Watt/20Volt/25 Amp adapter will work, but some of them, as you noted, are not very well made. It looks like the Chicony ADLX45NCC3A is the only one still available directly from Lenovo. You can get a new Chicony ADLX45NCC3A 20V2.25A adap(CMN) 36200610 for $46.53 from Lenovo Encompass parts site (Note that it is out of stock till 5-10-2016) Chicony ADLX45NCC3A from Lenovohttps://lenovo.encompass.com/item/10284463/Lenovo/36200610/45W_Ac_Adapter Or you can order it from Amazon.com for $29.88 (cannot verify that it is original, but it is fulfilled by Amazon, so if not, Amazon will stand behind it.)     http://www.amazon.com/Original-ADLX45NLC3-ADLX45NLC3A-ADLX45NCC3A-ADLX45NDC3/dp/B00CLZQRQI/ref=sr_1_...  AC adapters Table 8.

Just replaced the battery in my XPS 1340 and found out I have charging issues. When I plug in a charger, Windows sees it but won't charge the old total depleted battery, instead, runs off ac power. Tried a different charger and a new battery with 30% charge but same results. As a last chance effort, I replaced the male prong power adapter in the computer. Now Windows doesn't see the charger and will not run on ac. 
Is there something in the Bios that needs to be done to fix this or am I to assume it's a motherboard issue and retire this little workhorse.

A:Battery not charging after power adapter replacement

Dead batteries cannot be charged. Remove the dead battery and try using just the original dell adapter that came with the laptop alone. You cannot use other models adapters or batteries.

My power adapter to my Y500 Idea pad is messed up. The wiring inside must have gotten damaged somehow and is now faulty. It only charges my laptops when angle in certain positions, or goes in and out. It's the 170W AC adapter one, but is there really a difference in using one of the small Wattage Adapters? The 170W one is just way out of price-range for me so I'm looking for one of the cheaper versions. I found one online that is "Y500 AC Adapter 90Watt 19V 4.74A". Would that work with my laptop?  I don't understand how different wattages affect my laptop (I'm assuming it affects charging time) so any help is appreciated. I generally keep my laptop plugged in with the battery removed, so I don't have to worry too much about charging the battery, if that's any help.Thank you!

Hello Forum, I've just managed to break the head of my HP Envy 14 Spectre (14-3011tu) power adapter cable.  The power adapter is one of those HP travel adapters (65W - 574487-001) with interchangable heads.  I called HP Australia and various HP suppliers to see if I can get a replacement interchangable heads or even a whole replacement adapter however no one has them in stock (well they have the base power pack but not the correct head and no one know when they'll get extra stock).   Do anyone know if there is a similar HP laptop that uses the same long 4.7mm adapter head as the HP Envy 14 Spectre (14-3011tu) ? I'd like to buy one so that I can hack together a new interchangable head cable whilst I wait for new OEM stock to come in.   PS. I've already ordered a few of the aftermarket adapters off eBay that clam to fit the Envy 14 Spectre however they are a few micronos too thick to fit in the socket.  Image below just in case you're having the same headaches as me.  http://support.tmg100.com/HPEnvyPlusAM1.jpg Cheers!

Hey grainass, This is a hard part to find for some reason. I have confirmed personally with customers that this part number is the correct replacement for the DC cable that connects the power brick to the notebook.  687530-001 Click here to go to the HP Parts Store. At the top you'll see the Americas tab highlighted. Click on the Asia Pacific tab and choose Australia below. On the next page, in the Search by part number box, type in 687530-001 and press Enter. Then you can order it online or call the HP Parts Store at the number listed. Really hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions!  -------------------------------------------------- Anyone else looking for a Spectre 14-3xxx replacement DC cable can use this part number as well. Just choose the appropriate country on the HP Parts Store link and post any questions you have.

i have a ibm thinkpad 600E. my cd rom has suddenly stopped working. everytime i put a cd rom into the drive, a message comes back that the drive is not ready. some people have mentioned that perhaps the lens that reads whether a cd rom has been installed has worn out and i may need to replace the whole cd rom. does anyone have any suggestions on how i may be able to get my existing cd rom repaired or replaced?
 

A:finding a replacement notebook cd rom

My first thought is that the 600E came with a 3-year warrenty. You may be able to get this replaced under warrenty and save yourself some expence. Try calling the following number, it will put you in contact with IBM EasyServ: 800-772-2227. You will need your serial and model number (they are located under the machine on a small decal with a barcode on it). If it is still under warrenty, they will arrange to have the unit sent in for repair. They usually are very fast and you should have the computer back in three days or less.

If it is not, you should be able to buy a new one directly from IBM, the part number is 05k9068. You may also buy one here http://www.acsparts.com/thinkpads/thinkpad_data/cdroms.html, but the part number will be 05k9067. You could also shop around in the internet, these should be available from several sources.
Sorry, that part number was for the DVD drive, the par number for the CDROM is: 05k8994

Recently Micro$oft made changes to hotmail. One of the features they removed (that they called an 'improvement'), was the ability to delete junk mail immediately.

It was one of the few features that attacted me to hotmail. I could set it to delete everything sent to me from anyone that wasn't in my safe senders list. I needed to do this for what I feel are important personal reasons.

I could sign up for dozens of free email services, looking for one that provides the same service - few of them give a comprehensive overview of their features.

I am wondering if anyone knows of a free email provider like hotmail, that has the feature to delete all email send from someone not in a safe senders list.

First off, apologies ff this is the wrong board for this post. I figured I had a problem with a graphics card, and should post it here. Overclocking and case mods may be more appropriate, possibly?
Anyway, I was cleaning the dust from the fan and heat sink on my n460gtx Cyclone. I wasn't being particularly careful and managed to loose one of the small screws that holds the fan to the heat sink. I'm guessing it fell between gaps in the flooring. So now I have 2/3 screws, and don't really want to run the card with only 2 holding the fan down as its likely to cause a whole lot of noisy vibration. I'm thinking I might have to start visiting some computer repair stores in the hope they have a similar screw, or as a last resort email MSI customer service or even just make do with 2/3 screws.
Cheers.

Hello all. I have a MSI GX630 notebook and though it has had many problems I now face a bigger one. My adapter was stolen and so I can't use it at all. The original adapter that was sent out with my notebook was a LITEON PA-1121-04. That is 19V and 6.3A like this one:

My desktop is a packard bell I-MEDIA PT.U03-PV.U03. I can't seem to find the driver to download and install. I really believe my PC is not that bad that I have to buy an external wireless adapter from the shop. Under 'Network Adapters' it says I have a 'VIA Rhine II Compatible Fast Ethernet Adapter'. And yes it is enabled and it says 'This device is working properly'.

My computer is from few years back but I remember it being able to connect to routers without an external adapter then..

Please help! Many thanks.
 

A:Help finding/installing network adapter for PC

Your mentioning an external wireless adapter makes me think you are expecting to connect wirelessly to your router. Typical desktop computers only come with a wired Ethernet port as standard. From what you are saying, that port should be usable as is and not require any additional drivers or need the existing drivers reloaded.

Am I misunderstanding your post and you are having problems with a wired Ethernet connection?

I have a wireless broadband router (Linksys) connected to my desktop computer, connected to a cable line, which seems to be working properly. I want to set up my laptop computer so I can communicate with the desktop and the cable connection. The laptop's OS was windows 95. (also has 16 megs of RAM and, I think, a pentium I processor. I can check that if need be.)

The instructions that came in the package deal - router plus notebook adapter in one package - said to install the software first, turn off the notebook, install the card, then turn it on again. I did this. The software seemed to install successfully. But I could not get the computer to find the card, to recognize that a card had been added. I tried to "add new hardware" and it found some kind of hardware that needed to be added and installed some sort of driver, but it wasn't the card. The slot shows up "empty" when I look. The lights on the card do not go on.

I thought maybe it would help if I were running windows 98 on this machine. So I upgraded to 98. Same thing. There is no way I have inserted the card incorrectly. I have taken it out and put it back, have checked and rechecked the instructions for cards, and everything clicks in as it should. I have also reversed the faxmodem card and this network card - the faxmodem continues to be found but this card does not. I have removed the fax-modem card altogether and just inserted the network card and it's no good.

Any ideas?

THe upgrade to WIn98 may help, but more than likely it is the PCMCIA slots that are the problem. On older laptops it can be a problem and you sometimes have to try different wireless cards until you find one that works.

It recently got a virus which I believe I removed. The problem now is that it cannot connect to the internet. I do not see the adapter in device manager and attempts to identify it or install drivers for it causes the laptop to crashClick to expand...

We don't know the nature of the virus and how you believe you removed it, so my guess at this point is that the Windows operating system is damaged.

Are you unable to connect both wireless and ethernet?

Hi, My AC adapter for my Lenovo Yoga 13 died a couple of days ago. I've been trying to find a replacement, but I'm unable to find one. Several shops claim to support it, but the information on their sites are generally incorrect. Does any one know a reliably source for a replacement for a Lenovo Yoga 13 AC adapter with the following specs:Model: PA-1650-37LCInput: 100-240V AC, 2.0A, 50-60HzOutput: 20V DC, 3.25A, 65W  You can see an image of the adapter here:Lenovo Yoga 13 AC adapterThe square tip has the dimensions:Outer dimesions: 11mm x 4.6mmInner dimensions: 6.6mm x 3.2mm You can see a photo of the tip that goes into the laptop here: I hope that someone is able to help me with a right answer as to which current adaptor that is compatible as it seems to be pretty hard to get the original.

I have a IOMEGA AC Adapter that still works however, I noticed a small tear (you can barely see it) on the wire. I noticed if you move the wire in a certain way, the AC Adapter will not power the IOMEGA Hard Drive. It will only work if you position the AC Adapter in a certain way (in the left position). The plug works just fine, but I would like to buy a replacement AC Adapter.

The details relating to the IOMEGA AC Adapter is

Model #: KSAD1200150W1US

Input: 100-240V ~ 50/60Hz 0.4 A

Output: 12V ? 1.5A

The IOMEGA Hard Drive itself is: Make = Iomega Model = MDHDU (I think).

OMG I don't even know where to begin...My laptop had been acting up for quite some time now. I had installed a new AV and was trying to get used to it and all but for some reason I suddenly couldn't get into some pages like I normally did on a daily basis. Like for instance I couldn't get into my Yahoo it said trouble loading page. Same for the other pages and it had a bad lag too. So I decided to uninstall this new AV I had just installed...I used my Revo-uninstallerPro that I have because I like this better than just going to the control panel and uninstalling it that way...it still leaves so many of its traces on my laptop that it fully doesn't really uninstall it...and I'm sure that most of you can agree with me on that. I thought I did my research on that AV and although it had very mixed reviews I took a chance on something new and now I'm regretting it. When I uninstalled it, it went thru it's site of uninstalling it and then my program went thru its scanning of leftovers etc. and I was literally shocked at the thousands of files it still had in my PC that I had to delete and after I did that then it was the programs I believe...another shocker...I deleted what I could then was instructed to restart my laptop to complete it.

Hi

I've been having a problem for a while now with my wireless adapter. I know it's not the router because all of my roommates are able to use it fine and I usually can't see the connections at school or any public place.

The problem is that most of the time there will be no networks to connect to according to my computer (connection symbol has an x on it), even though there is. I have upgraded from Windows Vista Home Premium (32-bit) to Windows 7 Professional (64-Bit). When I first (clean) installed windows 7 it worked fine for 2-3 weeks but now it rarely can find networks and when it does it may only be for 2 minutes.

I've tried reinstalling windows 7 and it works for a few hours and then goes back to not working properly. I've tried reinstalling the drivers not no success and I've tried upgrading to Intel's specific windows 7 64-bit drivers to no improvements. I've called Dell and their limited technical support couldn't help me.

My Wireless adapter is an:

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 hope this goes here - I guess technically this is a hardware issue, but...

So I found out today that the ACDC adapter for my sister's laptop, an Acer Aspire 5315 ICL50, just... Stopped working. Dunno why. Doesn't work plugged into the outlet from any of the power cords we have that fit. This is important because the laptop is so old, the battery lasts about ten minutes on max battery life power settings with a full charge. Basically, they've used it for the last three years or so just leaving it plugged in all the time.

The problem is, I can't tell what I need to replace it with. The ACDC adapter has a part number of SADP-65KB D, but looking that number up gets me a whole lot of hits for adapters that look nothing like the one that we got with the laptop, all made for different companies/manufacturers. There's another number on the adapter under a bar code sticker - ADT AP0650101373509E5FP101, but searching that on Google gets me no hits at all. I'm confused because the results I get searching for 'SADP-65KB D' all seem to list similar numbers on the list of 'compatible systems', but that number doesn't seem to exist at all.

So until I get a replacement identified and ordered, my nephews are without a computer to use. Can anyone point me to a proper replacement - or at least tell me how to go about finding a proper replacement?

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.

I have recently bought a Video Card for my computer I have a Hp Elite 8200 ultra-slim desktop, the video card was a cheap ATI Radeon 5450 (512 mb). I currently have a 135 Watt power brick, more of a Laptop charger, i did some research on how much watts I would need for the graphics card and people were saying I would need at least 300+ Watts. I was looking around online for anything with 300 watts or more and I couldn't find anything, does one even exists?

A:Help finding a power BRICK

There are not any 300 Watt power adapters available for an ultra slim desktop.  It is, in the case of sapphiretech, who makes HD5450 cards, a suggestion, rather than a requirement. http://www.sapphiretech.com/productdetial.asp?pid=E2B498B5-6369-4776-80D7-8B0F9DA410A2&lang=eng  It is usually not a requirement because the cards draw so little current from the slot. What is the brand and model nuumber of the card? The Radeon HD5450 is listed as an optional card so I do not see any reason to change the original power adapter. See the following specification for your PC to anything other than perhaps the 180 Watt version.http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c02781659

Swapped out the older ASUS motherboard when it apparently died - was also told that by
a repair shop.

A sympathetic person donated his "old" ASUS P5WD2 complete with PCU and RAM and heat sink for the cost of shipping, so went to work. He said he had upgraded to a more powerful setup
and that this all worked when he removed it and stored it.

I had upgraded the power supply a few years ago to an ULTRA d1106 550 watt when I added a couple drives, and it always seemed to work.

I printed out the instruction manual for the P5 and, not having done a lot of work on PC's for some years other than adding drives, etc, followed it very closely. The plugs from the case were labeled so I'm pretty sure I got the power & interrupt switches, case lights and fans, etc, all hooked up right. Also the main cable to the board from the power supply, and a secondary power supply cable to a socket near the CPU. Also got the C drive (EIDE) and the 2 additional SATA drives hooked up to the board and to the power supply, and believe I have them right. Maybe a question on the C drive. There a set of sockets for EIDE drives, incl one designated as a Primary, and another Primary socket for an IDE drive. If I recall, my C drive is an EIDE so I should have connected to the right socket on the board. Even if not, shouldn't the CPU, and
case lights and fans power up?

I have a Dell Inspiron with an extended life battery that sticks out the back a little. The power cord is dying - works intermittently. I have a potential replacement cord that came with a different laptop I?d like to use. However, I am uncertain if this may cause problems or even be unsafe.

First concern:
The current, non-working, power cord has a hexagonal (cross-section) male end that plugs into the laptop. The replacement cord has the more typical round (cylindrical) end. The replacement cord does fit in the laptop and it is not apparent, physically, that it is a problem.

Second Concern:
The current, non-working (hexagonal), cord input matches the input on the replacement (round) cord, as expected since they're U.S. cords meant for U.S. power sources. However, the output is not the same.

current, non-working (hexagonal), cord output: DC 19.5V 3.34A
replacement (round) cord output: DC 19.5V 4.62A

Will the higher amperage of the replacement cord cause a problem, especially a potential safety issue? The laptop is left plugged in for long periods of time, unattended. I?d hate to start a fire.

Can someone with more electrical knowledge let me know if my concerns have merit or is my little, but more than zero, knowledge of electricity creating a concern where there should be none.

I have a Samsung laptop, and not long ago I bought a replacement AC power adapter from Rocketfish. However, the adapter tip - the part that plugs into the laptop - accidentally broke off yesterday and now I need a new one. The adapter tip just snaps on and off from the power/adapter cable, and the package came with about ten alternate tips of varying sizes (none of which fit my laptop).

Can I get a replacement tip somewhere without having to replace the entire expensive adapter power cord? I would think someone would sell it, as it just easily snaps on and off. All the various online posts I've seen seem to suggest that I need a soldering kit and workshop to get it done. But if that's the case, why does it just snap on and off?

Recently the fan on my 600 W Cooler Master Power supply started to make increasingly loud noises. Upon investigation I found that the fan was locking up and then fighting to spin. I tried dusting down the system but had no luck in getting the fan to function properly. So yesterday I went out and purchased a new 650 W Antec Power Supply to replace it. I powered down my system, shut off the power supply, and removed the power cable. With an ESD strap tethered I documented the connections, removed the cables, and replaced the Cooler Master with the new Antec PSU. I then powered the box back up heard it post, figured it was fine and put my monitor back on it.

This is where my problems begins.

My system configuration is as follows:

motherboard: nforce 6801 sli
vid card: 8800 GTS
RAM: 4 GB DDR2
HD: two 76GB raptors in a RAID 0 for my OS
HD: two 500GB 7500k drives in a RAID 0 for storage
PSU: 650 W Antec
OS: Windows XP

When I power the box up all fans are active, the hard drives spin up, the mother board posts normally, and displays the "FF" status on the motherboards LED indicator signaling a normal boot process. The BIOS runs and I see it detect my two RAID stripes and it indicates that they are healthy. It gets to the boot from CD check and goes to a blank screen. It does not progress any further.

I have some annoying shutdown problems, one of which is the occasional presence of 'GDI+ Window' that blocks shutdown. (another is the Chinese-like text that blocks as well but that is Rapport and in the hands of IBM, as I understand it).

However when I look at Power Options and open up the 'choose what the buttons do' window and then click on 'change settings that are currently unavailable' I can only see 'sleep' and 'lock' options.

Do I need to set something somewhere to see the missing options?

I replaced a bad power supply on my custom built desktop running Vista Business. Everything is up and running except for the audio. I deleted the hardware in device manager and let Vista detect it and install the driver, but that did not help. I did go through all the basic troubleshooting tips without any luck. The sound is onboard and it is enabled in BIOS.

Anyone got any ideas?

Hello, I have replaced the power supply on a Gateway PC. The PC starts to boot then hangs with the message "no response from MSD". I think I may not have re-connected all the devices properly, or, not plugged in the power to somewhere. Rather than start troubleshooting I thought someone here might know that specific error code so I can go directly to the problem. Any help? Thanks.
 

A:Gateway Power Supply replacement

Sounds like there is no signal from the video card. How far along in the POST does it get? I am also not sure if Gateway uses standard ATX power supplys, you may need to get one directly from Gateway. Compare the pinouts from the old PSU and the one you just put in and see if the voltages are all the same with the same number of pins. This would be the connector that clips onto the motherboard.

Hey guys, got a question that I wanted to see if anybody could answer. I'm coming to you from my PS3, because yesterday after having to "wiggle and jiggle" the power cord to get my laptop to charge, it finally crapped out. I'm pretty confident that it's the power terminal (located on the motherbored) and possibly the cord also.

To fix the issue, I'm hoping I could just buy a new, but different terminal and cord so I don't have this issue again. Ideally I'd like to get a cord like the mac, but I realize that is a long shot. So i'm hoping I can just get a good, solid cord/terminal.

My question(s) is/are can I replace the OEM power cord/terminal with a non OEM? How would I find the watt/amperage my laptop needs?

My laptop = Gateway MC7801u

Thanks guys!
 

A:Laptop power terminal replacement

What has probably happened is the solder connecting the DC in port to the motherboard has cracked. Since it is soldered to the motherboard, to fix it you will need to re-solder the connections or buy a new motherboard. There is no way you could replace it with a mac-style port (magsafe) without some serious modifications to the AC adapter and your laptop.

I had some intermittent shut downs before the power supply finally totally crapped out. I have an HP Pavillion. I first bought a 750 watt supply from Tiger direct, but it wouldn't fit in my case. BUT, I did hook it up and make sure that the computer started up and ran ok. It ran fine. NOW, to replace that, the only thing I could find that would fit was a 350W diablotek. My problem is this, Now, when I hit the power button, the power supply fan turns on, but nothing else. When I turn it off, a power surge spins the cooling fan and the cpu fan.
The side note would be that when I was putting in the power supply, the heat sinc was in the way. When I pulled it out, I didn't realize that the cpu came out with it. I jacked up the cpu when reinstalling the sinc. I bent some prongs. I have replaced it with the identical cpu and still have this problem. Any ideas??
 

A:No start after a power supply replacement

What was your power supply wattage that you replaced? Did you test to see if the Diablotech is functional, i.e. test it with a multimeter?

For and HP Computer. The power supply model is a Hipro HP-2537F3R and is 250W. I thought that just any ATX power supply would work but i talked to a local vendor and he told me that I have to find one that is specifically made for HP or Compaq Computers because of some kind of difference in Wiring. Is This true? He can get me one at a decent price, but its gonna take him about a week and i was hoping to get one sooner. So i wanted to see if there was anything compatable that i can get locally. Thanks.
 

A:Trying to find a replacement power supply.....

HP uses a small form factor psu as in all the ones I have replaced. They are ATX psu's but to get them to fit your case you may want to wait on the other guy as in if it does not work you can return it on their business for getting you the wrong part and not be stuck with something you can't use.

Hi, I have a pretty straightforward question. How do I find my Power Supply unit in Vista's Device Manager? I have a pre-made Lenovo computer, and I'm curious what the wattage is on the power supply.

Thanks.

Also, does anyone know of a good faq for deciphering the Device Manager? I actually am not sure how to locate my motherboard from the list either. Why can't they label these things "Power Supply Unit" and "Motherboard" so it's easy to know?

The Power unit is not listed in the Device Manger.

The side of the box has a chart for each voltage but it has a sticker on the back marked AC230V. Im assuming that on most power sources there is a way to switch it, ive searched inside and out of the box and i cant find anything and i cant seem to find a manual for it on the web either, any ideas?

Recently I replaced the power supply in my computer and then my computer refused to bootup. When I try to bootup my computer just turns on, and nothing else. My monitor screen doesn't even get a picture which I'm assuming means that it isn't getting a "signal". The monitor remains black with nothing ever showing up (not even the text during the bootup screens) and the little light on a monitor that indicates that it is "on" just flashes like they do when you shut off your computer and forget to turn off your monitor. So I replaced the video card with a spare one. Same problem. I've used a different monitor. Same problem. And I have also used a different harddrive. But as you guessed it. Same problem.

I've reseated all my Ram, the CPU, and all of the ribbon connections about 10 times to ensure they did not come loose during the power supply change. Still nothing. As a last resort I reinstalled my old power supply system (which was working but old and NOISY) and it never helped.

Any suggestions? I'm at my wits end.

Thanks for any assistance. I need an adult drink.....

Hello All:

I have a HP DV6275US, Pavillion DV6000 with Vista Home Premium on it and I am trying to go to XP. Dual booting is too much of a ruckus and I do not like it anyways, so I bought a Scorpio to install it on.

When I installed the Scorpio, it initially would not detect the drive, so I disabled SATA Auto. in the BIOS, and it then recognized it.

So, I start to install XP, formatted fine, copied sys. files fine, but when I got to the actual GUI install it asked me if I wanted to install a driver for my battery, which could possibly disrupt installation, so I choose yes and anyways and it proceeded fine for about a minute, then power failure. Tried again, and again, and same thing.

I put my Vista HDD back in, a Seagate 160GB, and things worked fine.

I have read something about having to manually load the drivers for the nVidia RAID chipset, as the ones XP Install loads do not suffice. I could not find any problems about the battery, so please, ANY help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a lot.

Hello
I recently misplaced my AC charger for my IBM Thinkpad T20 TYPE 2647(PentiumIII 700mhz 128mb ram 60g hd XP Home svc pack 2). After pricing new ones I looked to Ebay and found MANY with different specs than what is on my machine. The ID sticker shows the power requirements as 16v 3.36a. I viewed a few chargers advertising 16v 4.5a and assume they would not fry my power supply but am not sure. Any advice you can provide would be appreciated.
Thanks, Brad

They should work fine. As long as the supply is capable of providing the rated current for your machine, any excess will simply not be used. The supply will only provide the power you require, up to it's maximum capacity.

I have my brothers laptop and have replaced the screen for him. It may not be relevant but I have also installed an SSD hard drive.I removed the broken screen to get the part number to be able to order a new one.While I was waiting for the new screen to be delivered, I connected a monitor via the HDMI port and installed Windows 10 Pro, anti-virus and anti-malware software along with numerous windows updates. All worked fine and the laptop had been rebooted several times. However, I powered it off, connected the new screen, using the four screws to hold it in place, then powered it on.The power light illuminates for anywhere from 2-4/5 seconds then goes out and that's it! I attempted the "hard reset" prodecure I found posted on the boards, to no avail. I have also disconnected the battery and reconnected it, disconnected the CMOS battery and reconnected it and finally removed and reseated the two memory modules installed. So, I am unable to confirm the new screen definitely works but on the other hand it looks like it could be a motherboard failure just coinciding with the screen being replaced? Is there anything else it could be or I can try? I am confused as the laptop has been running the past two or three days while I have installed new hardware and a new OS.Help!!

I usually leave my machines on permanently as they are set to download and install updates overnight, only switching off the monitors. Went on holiday and turned everything off but on my return the XPS would not respond to the power button - green light on the PS is on, but dim, amber light on the motherboard is on. Reseated the power cables, no change. Jumpered the green cable on the 24pin connector to a black one - PS fan starts up, but still no boot up. I suspect the PS is faulty but I am having difficulty locating an exact replacement - proprietary ones do not seem to have all the necessary cables.

A:Computer slow after power supply replacement...

You would have to ask them for a list of that which they did.

What brand, model, model # PC, or same information for the motherboard?

Computer specs would be helpful.

Which ;power supply was it: brand, model, model #, wattage? Same for now?

If you aren't happy, take it back & have them install a new power supply and politely insist that they demonstrate it to you before you accept it back.

Start the computer, note time from start to desktop appearance or log in screen appearance.

Start the computer in safe mode & do the same.

To start in safe mode, start > run
type: msconfig
OK
boot.ini tab
put a check in "safe book"
OK
exit without restarting
Shut down.
Turn on.

Laptop spec: HP530, Model HSTNN-C29CCeleron 1.73ghz1.5gig Ram,Windows Vista Home Basic. Last year I started having trouble with my HP530's power supply. At first it was occasionally not charging the battery when the laptop was running. This would mean that the battery would drop to zero charge and the laptop would suddenly switch off. The problem got worse until the point where it would on sometimes charge, and only if the laptop was turned off. I put the problem down to bad capacitors in the charger and decided to get a replacement. I got an official HP replacement from the High Street. The part number for this was: 463552-004. The part looks completely genuine, very much like other HP chargers my friend's have. I plugged it in to my laptop and it worked great for two days of very moderate use.. Then, on the third day, I plugged it into the wall socket and switched it on to get nothing. There was no light on the laptop to indicate it was charging and the icon on the Windows bar did not even show that the charger was connected. I tried it with a different power supply to wall socket cable, and it stroll did not work. At this point I switched off the plug outlet at the socket, disconnected the laptop power plug from the laptop and removed the plug from the plug socket on the wall. After I had removed the wall plug and it was well clear from the socket, my hand touched the two non-grounded prongs on the plug and I quite a big el... Read more

I created a topic not long ago about my power supply getting ready to die on me. I thought I would get as much out of it as I could but I went ahead and replaced it with OEM Dell power supply 350W a few days ago. It wasn't hard to swap out the old one and put the new one in but trying to get the CMOS battery out was a chore unto itself. I took a picture of the inside configuration and wrote down where everything was connected so I would get it all back together right. When I got the everything hooked back up and plugged it back in to start it up I got an amber light on the power button. It turned on anyway and when it did I got the infamous "Diskette Drive 0 failure" screen. That's not a big deal and I fixed that in the BIOS controls. I also had to reset the date and time. Here's where it's getting tricky. I can't get either optical drive to read anything. Before they were working fine. The system does recognize both the DVD ROM and the DVD RW drive and says they are both working fine.

A:Power port replacement for Satellite T110-121

Hi

The replacement is very, very tricky because you have to disassemble the whole notebook unit.
You have to remove all parts before you will get access to the motherboard and to the DC in cable.

I don?t think you can do this without any step by step instruction and guidelines.

As far as I know and as suggested in this forum, the maintenance manuals are not available for common notebook users. Such manuals are released only for authorized service technicians and I think you will not be able to download such manuals but I think you can search in internet for some useful information and details.

For example you could take a look on irisvista.com website and could look for Satellite T110/T115 series how to disassemble such units.

But such disassembling is your own risk!
