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?

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.

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.

The problem still exists even after Dell repaired the laptop. It took two weeks to get the repaired laptop back from Dell.

The problem is:
When I plug or unplug the charger while playing music/video on laptop, the laptop is freezing with buzzing sound for 1-2 seconds when the laptop begins charging. Even after Dell repaired the laptop, the problem still exists.
Tried installing the updated drivers, the laptop works fine only for a short period and then after some time the same freezing with buzzing sound problem comes back.
Also, if the laptop is restarted it works fine for a while and then the same freezing with buzzing sound problem comes back.

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?
Thanks!

A:Laptop charger

If the connector from charger #2 fits correctly into the laptop in question, then yes, you can use it for troubleshooting the problem.

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 second charger for laptop. The charging port fits in perfect.

Here is the specs of my charger
Output 20V - 3.25 A

Specs of other charger (Really old Toshiba ~ 2007)

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.

Hi, I have an HP Pavilion g6-2244sa laptop and my charger has broken down, I was looking for another charger to buy and I came across a charger that holds 18.5v but my laptop charger that I previously used was 19.5v. Would I be able to use this charger? Will there be a change in how the laptop charges? Will it damage my laptop? 

A:Can I use a 18.5v charger to a 19.5v Laptop?

Some HP laptops actually specifiy a 19.5 volt and an 18.5 volt charger as alternates but the devil is in the details. First, of course, does the "new" charger actually fit in the socket? Can we have the HP part numbers of the two chargers and we can quickly say if they are interchangeable? A new 100% compatible charger can be had for maybe $15 so I can't see any need to run a risk of damaging the laptop.

I was using my laptop when it suddenly shut down when I pressed FN+F8. When I restarted it, it seemed fine, but the sleep button (FN+4) not longer worked. I checked Lenovo Settings to see if something was wrong, but it said it was fine. I pressed the laptop battery icon on the taskbar and the laptop shut down again. When I restarted it again, Windows didn't load correctly, so I had to restart it again. Windows loaded the second time, but when it came back on, the Wifi no longer worked and the airplane power mode was on. I ran a Lenovo.com diagnostic, but when it was running, the screen flashed from battery power to charger power, and the laptop urged me to activate the airplane power mode, so I did. The diagnostic says everything in the laptop, so I suspect something is wrong with the charger. What should I do?

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?

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).

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).

I'm in need of some major help here. For the past few months my laptop has been randomly charging and running on battery. My brother did something to the charger plugin and now when I plug my laptop charger into my laptop, it just won't charge. I have to spend an hour of my time every few days plugging in the charger, pulling as hard as I can on the cable and pushing something against the laptop charger to keep it plugged in so that it charges. I think that either something in the laptop is bent because I can only have it plugged in in two directions, and maybe something isn't connecting which is why I have to push so hard on the part of the charger that plugs into the laptop. I really can't afford sending it in, and when I tell my parents about it, they honestly could care less about my problem because it's not their problem or their computer. So here I am, with $5, some change, and a laptop that will soon stop being able to run because it's unable to charge. It's got to be the plugin in the laptop that's the problem, right?

I've got a Toshiba Qosmio G50 laptop that I bought quite a few years ago and the charger for it finally konked out on me from heavy use and bending of the cord.
I've been trying to search for a charger for it with the same specifications as the one I currently have. I think the product number for it is PA3658E-1AC3B and it's specs are like 120W, 6.3A, 19V, 5.5mm/2.5mm.

I have been unable to find a charger with these specs and when I search for other chargers with similar specs and so on, when lists of compatible laptops come up, my laptop is never in the list. Now I'm wondering if this is due to because the laptop is actually incompatible or due to the fact that it is rather quite old.

Also, does anyone know what laptop chargers I could be able to use or specs for them. Like would a charger with these specs work for my laptop?

Hello, My laptop seems to lag or slow down quite significantly when on the charger. I have owned it for about two years now and it has never done this before until about a month ago. Once it reaches around 15% battery power it slows down dramatically, and when plugged in, it is extremely slow, once it is charged, i must remove the charger and restart the computer before it runs fine again, it doesnt seem to over heat as the fan rarely ever kicks on and is ice cold to the touch. I've read a couple of things of others having similar issues and have tried a number of things. I've tried setting all the charging options to match the battery options under power options. I've tried removing the battery and running on just the charger, I checked the charger cord for the recall that's ongoing, doesnt match the recall numbers. Also i have updated the bios as well. I'm not very intelligent when it comes to computers but i have tried about everything i can think of to try to remedy this issue but nothing has worked so far.

Hi there, newbie here,

The power jack on my toshiba 1900-305 s series laptop is damaged. The power light comes on briefly when the power cable is plugged in but then goes out after a short while without powering up the machine. I therefore need to power up the battery so that there will be enough power for me to extract the small amount of unbacked up data (family photos from a recent event etc) via a flash pen. Is there anywhere I can get a separate charger for the battery, or alternatively a pre-charged battery (anyone got the same laptop that is working and willing to sell a pre-charged battery)? This is likely to be a one off only so that I can transfer the files, I don't think the machine will be repairable or will be prohibitively expensive if it is (currently unemployed). I have inherited a tower pc to replace the laptop. I'm no techie but I can follow instructions and would not be afraid to take the back off a tower pc - laptops are a mystery to me though, but I would be willing to try if it would not damage the data on the laptop. Many thanks for any advice or help anyone can offer.

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

Hello, this is urgent. This just happened a while ago. I was playing a game here on my laptop and it was under 20% battery life, as I continued to play when it was plugged in. And all of a sudden I hear a spark and then my laptop shut down unexpectedly, and I immediately unplugged it and tried turning it on but it wouldn't turn on for a few minutes. Afterwards everything was normal, but as I plugged the charger back in the light indicator on the side of my laptop wont lit up anymore.So I'm not sure if it's my laptop or the charger is broken. Please help.

My laptop charger has ceased working. It has just stopped working. It does not output power anymore. I am around 2 months beyond my warranty. Can hp do anything about this. I believe consumer rights state that an item must work for a reasonable length of time regardless of the length of the warranty.Thanks in advance.
