I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

I'm troubleshooting a laptop for a friend that can't find his charger for a Aspire 5560. I thought I had a spare charger but I don't have a compatible charger that fits this model. My first question is, where can I find a compatible charger that fits this model and charges at 19.5V? Is there an all in one of interchangeable power pack I can purchase?  My second question is, can I power the battery another way? thanks!

I need a new charger because mine just blew up after 3 years of loyal service (thankfully my laptop wasn't harmed). However, I am unsure what charger to get because when I look at chargers on the HP store's webpage and click on a charger, under the "compatible devices" section, my laptop's model name isn't listed under any of these. My laptop is only 3 years old so I don't understand why I am having so much trouble finding out a compatible adapter for it. The charger I've been using for the past 3 years has the following specifications:120WInput: 100-240V ~ 50-60Hz 2.0AOutput: 19.5V  6.15A I have no idea what those figures mean, so if someone could reccommend a safe and suitable replacement charger while I nurse my electrocuted thumb I'd be very grateful!

My Dell Inspiron 17R 5720 doesn't recognize charger any more. And unfortunately my warranty expired 2 month ago.It was plugged in and working in the morning, but then in the afternoon I noticed that it was running on the battery only. It wont start without battery (just charger plugged in).
1. So here what I have done to debug. Me and my brother, we have purchased the same Dell laptops at the same time a year and a bit ago. This is why for a debugging purposes it was good.I took my charger and plugged in to his computer. And it works. Definitely not the charger issue I guess. And when I plug charger in to my computer, green light is still on the charger. And I have the original charger that came with the laptop.
2. Now, laptop works on the battery only, so this means that motherboard is working. I guess.
3. Next thing I did was unplugged charger and removed the battery from the laptop. Then I pushed and hold "Power" button for 45 seconds to discharge a flea charge. Plugged charger back in but laptop wont start.
4. Next I started laptop on the battery, went to BIOS and checked if the charger is recognized in the BIOS. No, it doesn't recognize charger. So, if it is not a charger then what else can it be?
5. Laptop doesn't have any strange smells so I'm not sure if anything happened with the motherboard, but I would assume mother board is ok because it works of the battery.

A:Dell Inspiron 17R 5720 doesn't work with charger. Charger is not recognized. Not charger problem.

Hi CJ777,
Thanks for reaching out with your query. You pretty much figured out all points of failure. Good job.
If the adapter is not detected in BIOS, it most likely is an issue with the mother board. In the BIOS set up, AC adapter should show up as 65w or 90w. If the adapter status is 'None' or 'Unknown Device Installed', it indicates that the mother board is not detecting the adapter for which the battery is not getting charged. Once the battery charge drains, I'm sure the adapter will not charge it again. Replacing the system board should resolve this issue.

This is the perfect forum to ask this critical question because I know that there are some people here that have a lot better understanding of computer hardware than I do. Note that I have not yet booted up this laptop and I am not a gamer. Moving on...

The base price for this laptop is $1300. I paid $2500 for it because I'm a speed freak.

I customized it for speed. I customized it for work and school projects....9 to 5 stuff. I'm a little schizo. Between 9 to 5 I'm a madman. Or maybe, thanks to genetics and coffee, I have a type A personality between 9 to 5. I'm all business between 9-5, The words "lighten up - take it easy" aren't in my vocabulary between 9-5.

All I know is that when I use the computer to work on a school or work project and I experience a slowdown or blockage, I go mad. I go nuts. I scream. I act like a racehorse who's stuck in quicksand. I have a little meltdown is what I'm saying.

So that's why when I ordered this computer I told myself to emphasize speed, speed and more speed. So I built it with 8 gigs of RAM and a quad core processor. That is the main reason why it went from being a $1300 laptop to a $2500 laptop. (no desktop, thank you - I bought a laptop so I could get out of the house and work away from home 3 or 4 days a week).

So did I make a mistake in ramping up a $1300 laptop to the tune of $2500?

I've had a second-generation 20 gig iPod for three years. I ALWAYS charged it with an Apple wall charger, Model A1070, which has output marked 13 volts, 0.62 amps. This iPod started getting glitchy, so today I bought a new 80gig iPod Classic. I want to fully charge the new iPod before I do anything else.

But can I use the three-year-old A1070 wall charger? The A1070 cable clicks into the Classic dock connector just fine, but I am afraid to plug the charger into the wall unless I am sure it is compatible. The wall charger (model MB051LL/A) currently being sold on the Apple website (here: http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APPL...SQ3Ep419NXsrhY) looks pretty much the same as the A1070 on the outside -- but I saw reference somewhere to the function of some connector pins being changed so that some older iPod accessories are incompatible with the newer models. Also, I think I saw on a website that the new charging input specs are 12 volts at 1 amp, but now I can't find that page now and I'm not sure of that. I hate to buy a new charger if its not needed.

Why when i put on my laptop charger laptop goes up to 80 degrees celicus It gets really hot but when i take it off it goes down

A:When putting in laptop charger, laptop goes up to 80 degrees celcius

Thats because the system "steps down" the CPU, GPU, Display brightness among other thing when the computer is running on batteries. With some tweaking you can make it run at 80 degrees all the time, but your battery wont last long. You may also notice it responds a bit better when running on mains. With regards to getting it to run cooler on mains. I have never really tried tuning a computer the other way but someone here may be able to advise. I was expecting to see AMD CPU in your specs and I would in that case say it was normal. Other than that you may have high levels of dust build-up or failed fans inside. If you know someone experienced with laptop repair you could get them to take a look and give it a clean out.

Hello,

Whenever I plug my adapter into my laptop the CPU goes straight to 95-100% and stays on it but when I take it out it goes back to normal.

Also, It is a newer charger and it takes way longer to charge the laptop fully.
 

A:Laptop Charger

Is this "newer charger" the battery charging circuit in your laptop or do you actually mean the power supply (AC power cord and AC to DC adapter)? If the former, did you have the work done and do you have a warranty? If the latter I suspect you got the wrong power supply.

I have a laptop in which the charger 'pin' (to plug into laptop) seems bad. It's a bit loose when I wiggle it and when in the laptop, the cord has to be positioned just right for it to charge (it seems to lean the pin to where it can charge). I'm not sure if it's the charger or the port.

The charger (call it #1) is 19V, 2.37a, 45w. I have another charger (#2) (same brand laptop, different, lesser model). The voltage specs are 19v, 1.75a, 33w.

Can I safely use charger #2 to verify weather the problem is the charger or the port for charger #1's laptop?

A:Using a different charger for laptop?

When considering non-original laptop chargers, the voltage needs to match exactly while the current needs to be equal to the original or higher. In your case the current rating for the other charger is fine but the voltage is not correct. It's possible that the laptop has a voltage regulator inside to compensate for the lower voltage but since I have no knowledge of the inner workings of your Lenovo, I can't say whether the 19V is close enough.

When i got this message the first couple of times i just got a new one thinking i did something wrong, and the charger im using right now is not a dell charger, it's a knock-off one that i got for half the price on a discount website. This charger however did the same exact thing as my dell chargers, it worked great for a few weeks then gave me the message about it not being a dell 90wat charger although it is slighty different because this time it says it is plugged in but not charging.

any ideas what is wrong?

On that same screen it should say how to disable that message. Sometimes you have to update the BIOS to actual be able to get rid of that message or be able to use non-Dell adapters. Latest BIOS is here: http://support.dell.com/support/dow...-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=1&fileid=252216

But if its not charging the battery then there could actually be an issue. Possibly with the charging circuits on the mainboard, or there's possibly something damaging the adapters, like brownouts or surges. Does the jack in the laptop seem loose?

Im looking about for a portable charger for my TabletPC (Fujitsu Lifebook T4215) and yeah i know it's old but It works pretty well i will say abeit one big problem it has

It has HORRIFIC Battery life as in i can charge it to the full 4 bars of it's battery and it'll be smoked in about 15-20 mins, I've also got the power settings to near low (The CPU's clocking at 1GHZ now rather than 2GHZ (it's a core2duo t7200 btw) and the screens as dim as can be (I like my screens dim since i love the dark ^^) and since im wanting to travel about with it to my art studio that will kind of not suffice, and also i want to use it for enjoyment like while traveling and such.

So effectively the device i kinda want is to say a portable powerstation, And it'd be cool if it lasted upto per say 3 1/2 hours + from fully charged to near empty And as optionals too it could support nya other two laptops (Lenovo G550 and Acer Aspire 5742) And wouldn't cost me a fortune, 70? would be pretty good, But i also want quality too as this is likely to have some usage to it too.

I don't want the answer "Oh just buy a new tablet" cause i've had that thrown at me and i Don't want to invest money into ANOTHER tablet when i only just bought this one a number of months ago ^^; X),

A:Best portable Laptop charger out there for under 70.00

Hi there

Another possibly better option is to get an AC inverter which you can run from a Car battery -- 12 V DC input ---220 V AC output (as you said 70 GBP I assume UK so electricity supply there (when it's actually working !!) like rest of W/N/E Europe is 220 V not 120 V). This way you can charge the laptop while driving , use the laptop "out in the field" ON MAINS !! and being a 220 V AC you could plug in two other laptops at the same time - I wouldn't actually USE 3 laptops at the same time though on the inverter as you mighty find the Car battery would run down fairly quickly.

(Charging 2 and using one would be fine though).


Here are a load of 150 W one's -- from around 12 GBP to 40 GBP well under your budget --- and to use just plug the inverter into the car cigar lighter socket and your laptop into the standard AC outlet.

Enc pic as well as a link since some people might not know what an "Inverter" is given the lack of any sort of Engineering knowledge these days in Schools etc.

This is the one I use the BESTEK (pic shown) -- as it's 300 W output and even has 2 USB slots for charging USB devices like mobile phones which charge via USB slot (not USB mini==>micro adapters are also available). I have a decent battery in my car so the 300W is fine for me.

Costs 25 GBP and I use a 3 pin ==> European 2 pin adapter as the UK has its 3 pin rather non standard system.

So I just bought a used HP dv7 laptop. It came with a Dell charger and was able to charge fine. I use my laptop as my home computer so its always plugged in. Since I always keep it plugged in, I removed the battery so over time it wouldnt kill the battery life.
So everything runs good, but I also like to play games on my laptop. when I do my laptop shuts off. I thought it might be my laptop crashing, but I noticed that the small light on the charger was off. I unplugged the charger from the wall socket and plugged it back in and the light came back on and my laptop powered up. The charger was very very hot. So I pointed a fan at it and played the game again, but it shut off again.
I thought it had to do with the dell charger and the HP laptop, So I bought a brand new HP charger. But it still does the same thing, the charger shuts off.

Is there some settings I have to change? or something wrong with my laptop?
I cant figure it out.

Basically what's happened is this: Recently I got the "warn me if my battery needs replacing" message on Windows, so I ordered a new one which arrived today, then I fitted it (pre-charged to 75%) and it worked perfectly.

Next I plugged in my current charger only to find that just like my previous battery, no charge is being received, and I don't mean the "plugged in, not charging" message, but rather it just simply doesn't work.

Seems like the charger is defective, but what are the odds that both the charger and the battery would fail at the same time? I've tried multiple fuses in the plug but none of them make a difference, so it's likely not the fuse either...

Hopefully it's just the charger and I can go and order a new one. If that doesn't work I'll dismantle the laptop and make sure the connection from the charging port to the motherboard is working/and is not damaged. After that, I have no clue what could be going on; the battery is fine as is the laptop itself, it just won't charge.

With all that said could someone shed some light onto what may have happened here? I'm getting the feeling that my old battery likely works fine (unless the defective charger damaged it somehow).

Should any charger with the same model number work? The model number is ADP-65JH BB

I've been looking around on ebay...I see some with a 2 prong connection and some with 3. Some have slightly different amperage ratings.

Do I need the exact numbers or should any charger with the model number ADP-65JH BB work?
 

A:Is there anything to I need to know when buying a laptop charger?

Better post all info you can get. Not likely, but possible that 2 chargers with same model number different enough to do harm. Small differences in amperage ratings don't matter, but voltages definitely would, of course. You need to be certain on input voltage and connector types on both ends. You need the right input for your country (which may be indicated by a single letter at the end of the model number).

for a while now i have had to move the charger around so it would charge laptop, and last night it has stopped charging no matter what position i put the wire.

is it the laptop or the charger thats the problem? because green light still comes on the charger.
 

A:laptop charger not working.

It could be either.

If moving the plug to the computer around, without changing the angle between the cord and back of the plug too much, made the connection come and go, the problem might be in the jack or where the jack is mounted to the motherboard.

If moving the cord around, without changing the position of the plug in the jack too much, made the connection come and go, the problem might be in the cord itself. Say, like a broken internal conductor where the cord enters the back of the plug.

I've had problems with my Dell Inspiron 1570 laptop not fully charging for quite some time. The battery would charge normally to about 55% and then just stop there, although the Dell Battery Meter would still say "charging".

I've done some googling and decided that my battery was dying, so I ordered a new one off ebay. This one charges normally to about 70% (or at least that's what the battery meter says), then stays there, just like the old one.
A curious thing I've noticed is that the original battery had the capacity of 5600mAh and the new one only has 4400mAh. 55% of 5600mAh, which is what the old battery was charging to, and 70% of 4400mAh for the new one, are exactly the same values (3080mAh). I have no idea what that means, but it sure is interesting.

Someone already suggested to try battery calibration. Since there was no such option in BIOS, I tried doing it manually, by draining the battery and then recharging it with the laptop powered off. I actually got a few percent less charge that way.

I'm running Windows 8.1, but I've also tried booting a live Ubuntu USB, which made no difference.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

this is urgent, I plugged my laptop in today and it wont charge. it did last night, but today its not, ive noticed it was a very loose fit today, that being said, for that exact reason i believe its the end that plugs into the computer itself. it will charge when i hold it down hard enough, but thats not good for the port. how do i fix the charger so it charges on its own again? do i need to get a new one? is there a temporary fix for this?

my computer is a toshiba Satellite L305D S5928

You need to replace it with a genuine Dell replacement adapter. Aftermarkets will NOT work on that unit.

Alrighty -- so I've looked this up a lot and anywhere I look people don't seem to have a definitive answer. What about you guys? Here's the thing:

I have a laptop (less than a year old), and I take out the battery when it's not charging... because I take care of my things! Thing is; one day I was on my lappy when all of a sudden I lost power and heard a faint beeping noise. I followed my ears and voila, the charger was beeping. I got scared, and unplugged it from my laptop. The beeping continued!

So, without being plugged in to my laptop, my charger is plugged in to my surge protector and continues beeping. I readjust the cords and lightly throw it around a little bit... it works! The beeping stops and the LED is a constant green.

It seems to only happen when I'm at residence, and not when I'm at school.

Question is.. What the HECK is going on here? It's less than a year old. Can chargers die, or is it because of a faulty wire... what do you think? What's more, does anyone know if Dell covers warranty on... battery chargers?

Thanks, any insight you have is appreciated xD
