HP Pavilion dv7 power adapter cable

Q: HP Pavilion dv7 power adapter cable

The power cable on my dv7, that plugs into my computer was loose from day 1. Thinking this may have been normal, I didn't report this to HP. Eight months later, it eventually burnt out the post that the cable plugs in to. I didn't notice the condition of the post inside until I went and bought a new power adapter and cable, which at the time cost $60 on sale at Best Buy. I still would not work, so I contacted HP, FEDEX'd the computer to them, just to have them say that this was not covered by warranty. I was always led to believe that any part that was defective due to the manufacturer, was under warranty. I was wondering if anyone else has had a problem with HP standing behind their warranty. If this is not just a remote situation, I don't see how HP could stay in business. I know that if HP refuses to make some type of adjustment on this part, I will never purchase anything else from them. Colt 38

I'm in a situation. I've had nothing but problems with my HP Pavilion DV5000, within a few days of purchasing it, it completely crashed. Best Buy replaced it, after having the new laptop for a few months I noticed it wasn't charging properly. About a month I got frustrated because my laptop was about dead so I unplugged the adapter from my computer only to find that the little pin from the ac adapter had broke off INSIDE my computer. I took it to Best Buy being assured it would be fixed since it was still under warranty and not cost me anything, a week later they call quoting me $200. I called HP and they said to send it to them and they'd fix it.. sent it to them and again after a week of having it they finally contacted me telling me that I am being charged $317 for the repairs and a new AC adapter and that the AC adapter is NOT covered under the limited warranty. I ask to talk to someone else and was told they can't give out any numbers, they'd have someone contact me. I received a call yesterday morning explaining it was my fault this happened.. and that they won't cover it and the cost was now $314. At that time I was also informed that my hard drive needed replacing but they'd cover that. I asked to speak to someone else and the guy told me he was the highest person to talk to (which was BS). I hung up and called back the numbers he gave me incase we got disconnected, a woman answered this time saying they were all managers at that facility. I explain the situation and what was wrong with my computer and she told me she "didn't care" and was extremely rude, after telling me to do what I need to she hung up on me. I'm extremely disappointed with HP and their products, along with the Best Buy I purchased the computer from. I definitely will never purchase another HP product again!

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?

A:Power adapter cable for PCI-E

Based on what you just told us, one of those adapter cables should work just fine.

Hi there,  I am a new user of a Yoga 530 and was wondering if there is a possibility to charge the device with a powerbank? I know that the USB-C ports are not capable of charging the laptop and that the laptop needs to be charged via the small round plug (sry I don't know the technical terms).The question is rather whether there is a power cable available that has a USB plug on the "non-laptop" side so I can then plug that into my powerbank (or a USB charging station)? Hopefully, the question is understandable. Thaks for any help!   

A:Yoga 530 Power cable adapter available?

Short answer is no. The USB Type A ports on power banks, et al, deliver 5V at around 1 or 2A. Your 530's slim-tip charging port is looking for Around 20 volts (I don't have the exact voltage available, offhand, but it'll be listed on the charger that came with the computer). Creating a USB to slim-tip cable could damage both the computer and the power bank. 
 
Here is an article featuring several power banks that might provide the necessary voltage and current. As I haven't tried any of them, I can't say for sure, but if you're very careful to match voltage, current and connector polarity, you should be able to find one that suits your needs.

It is still in warranty if bought six months ago.Check your warranty status Here. There is troubleshoooting for the beep codes at the support portal, for your AIO desktop, but nothing about continuous beeping. http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-Pavilion-23-q000-All-in-One-Desktop-PC-series-(Touch)/7902091... Normally continuous beeping with a desktop indicates memory module issues. If you have a single stick of memory installed it is a bit difficult to troubleshoot that without having  a known good module one to swap in place of the originally installed memory module. A test for voltage is not an accurate test of the power adapter. It has to be under load to test it. It may be failing when the motherboard attempts to draw more power that it is capable of at the moment. I suggest contacting HP and requesting warranty service. This is what it is for.

I'm having a bizarre issue where simply unplugging the official Lenovo power supply from the orange USB power port causes the laptop to immediately issue the subject warning, along with the detail "A USB device has malfunctioned and exceeded the power limits of its hub port".   This warning pops up every 5 seconds, unless clicked on, where reset/close options do nothing.  Crazy thing is, NOTHING is plugged into any USB port!   Reattaching the power supply does not clear the error.  Only rebooting with the power supply cable connected clears the error.   Remove the power cable, and the error instantly comes back.   All of the USB ports actually work fine, including the USB C port, whether or not this message is active. Maybe it is a hardware issue, but ALL the USB ports actually work fine.  I can't figure how unpluging the power source can trigger a USB power surge when nothing is actually connected and the battery is fully charged.  I've removed/reinstalled the USB Root hub, eXtensible Host Controller, Generic USB Hub, etc., drivers multiple times to no avail.   No errors with any devices are apparent in the device manager. I've seen a lot of issues reported about USB power surges but none like mine.   Anyone have any ideas about this?  System: Lenovo Yoga 900/16GB/Windows 10

hi all,

I'm in a bind, and a friend referred me to this site, where I might be able to find some decent answers.

I run a small computer store in my hometown, and I was fixing a Sony Vaio PCG-FRV35 Notebook, It's fairly old, p4 with 512mb ram... But anyway, I was just removing spyware and viruses from it, and finished that up, then he said his sound wouldnt play, i started by reinstalling drivers and all that good stuff but it didnt play, I decided to lookinto the notebook to see if the speaker wires were connected and everything was fine there...

I pried off the faceplate for the powerbutton and LEDs and everything thats just above the keyboard, and I saw a ribbon cable connecting the power button and speaker circuit board to the motherboard, so i carefully unhooked it and put it aside, after finding no problems I rehooked it back up and tried to turn on the computer again... no power no post no sound nothing. It's like the power button is shot now. I've troubleshooted for 3 hours already on it, tried a multimeter to check to circuit connections, tried _everything_

I have no idea what to do now, this guy want's his laptop so he can work with it, and I dont feel like having to replace a laptop... this is like a techs worst nightmare >_<

Any advice would be greatly appreciated, is there any known issues were these power ribbons?

Why does having a network cable connected prevent the computer's power switch from functioning? And why does unplugging the network cable cause it to power up?

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.

A:4 pin atx12v power cable causes power short

1. Welcome to Tech Support Guy
2. The usual cause of such an event is either
A. a defective motherboard - unlikely but could be
B. If this is a new build - a build error and the motherboard is shorting across a ground fault when that power is connected
C. You are using the wrong connector or connecting it on the incorrect orientation - eg the clip is not the correct way on the motherboard header
D. CPU error - bent pin on insertion of CPU

3. Please post some more detail of
is it new build
CPU details
What checks have you made if new build
Re 865A01 - which one please there are variants

4. I presume now having looked at the board it is NOT a new build, so when please did this first occur
and what problems were seen first, if any , before this
Most likely cause now, as I think the system is of some age is the board or the processor, if you refer to the 12v aux power

After shutting down, my computer will not power-on again unless I unplug the power-cord, then plug it back in (or use the psu on/off switch).

I have tried changing PSU, same thing happens.

My guess it has to be related to my motherboard.
I have the latest bios. I have reset the bios.
This happened after upgrading to a opteron 180 cpu. But I'm not sure if its related.
I have tried disconnecting the RAM, harddrive, graphics card to no avail. Also tried refitting the power-button cables.
Computer is rock stable once its on ...It powers on fine if I switch off the PSU with the button that is located on the psu, or pull out the power-cable before turning it on.

Any ideas what might be causing this?

A:computer will not power-on unless I unplug power cable first

Unplugging the power supply, or disconnecting from the source allows everything to reset in the power supply and on the motherboard. This situation is most always associated with a defective power supply.

Since you have changed the power supply and the condition persists then the problem almost has to be a fault in the motherboard POWER GOOD circuitry.

If it were my machine I would just get in the habit of turning off the power supply after use, and live with it. Unless the problem is something obvious such as a "bulging" or leaking capacitor, chasing a problem like this is like chasing ghosts.

You need to go into 'device manager' (which is a part of your Windows program). Click 'start menu': choose 'Help and Support' icon. Type 'device manager' in the 'search box'..print out the instructions. If you are new to troubleshooting your computer: print all instructions. It will save you a lot of time and mistakes. Look at the device manager screen, click on 'monitor', then 'properties'. Next do the same on 'display adapters' This will tell what's not 'operating properly' and whether it's the driver's. 'Help & Support' has much help to offer...but not all the answers by a long shot. Good Luck.

Hello to the HP community. I must warn you all, this is a long thread and is potentially confusing, so only read this if you're interested in giving feedback. I am here today to not ask a question, but to share with you my confusion on your Pavilion desktop PCs. I've looked at the technical specifications for many of the Pavilion desktops, including my own, and I simply can't understand one thing; where do you get your PSU power ratings from? I currently have a Pavilion 500-319na: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04343438.It's a good computer, powerful in most areas although the GPU isn't, so I'm looking to upgrade it. The first thing I check before I upgrade parts, and hopefully others do too, is the PSU's power rating. And this is where my problem lies. Firstly, your website states that for my PC, and others, it's an external power adapter. It simply isn't, as it's inside of the PC. I've seen in many discussions that this has confused people, including myself. And secondly, your website states that for many of the Pavilion PCs, including mine, the PSU is rated at 180W. Let me tell you why I believe is wrong: The PSU that comes with my PC, and presumably other Pavilions too, has four power outputs: 3.3V (12A) and 5.08V (10A) outputs, 'limited' at 70W. Then there are 12Va (7A) and 12Vb (10A) outputs. These apparently produce 180W. First of all, the 3.3V and 5.08V outputs can't be limited to 70W, in theory. This is because, using the equation...

I bought my laptop in, I believe, late 2010. There is a small possibility it was late 2009, but I am inclined to think it was 2010. Anyway, my laptop recently went on the fritz. Two days ago, I left it on while I was out on errands. It kept running much, much hotter and louder than usual, but I thought nothing of it. Hours later, I discovered that it had shut off, which is unusual as I had left a few applications open that would keep it on. I tried to turn it on, nothing. I noticed that the ac power light (near the ac jack) was red; it should be white to show that the power cord was plugged in and charging the battery. I searched a solution online: turn off computer (check) unplug ac, take out battery, hold power button down for 30 seconds, plug battery and ac back in, turn on computer. It didn't work the first time, but I did it for 60 seconds and then it worked. Everything looked fine, and it was charging properly and the battery was working again. I thought it was just one of those things that happens occasionally, no big deal. Last night, it went out again.

My computer guy tells me this is a short caused by the motherboard. I am not sure why. He says the motherboard will have to be replaced.  My computer is almost three years old. It cost about $800 new. The motherboard will be about $150, "labor costs" almost another $100. So, in total, the fix would be 1/4th of the cost of laptop three years ago. The new question is whether that is worth it, and that's not even all that is wrong. The hinge is also displaced, a problem which apparently cannot be fixed. And I had to replace my hard drive about a year ago, because apparently it was "failing." In a two year old laptop. Thank you so much, employees of hp, for helping me with my problem. I hope my sarcasm is made clear enough. If and when I buy a new laptop, you can be sure it will not be an hp. I have had nothing but problems with every hp computer I've ever bought. I hate hp, and I say with all the power of my hatred, "Screw you."

Hi there,

We've got 3 Dell precision towers 5810 that work great, except for a possible bios bug, which I can reproduce on all machines:

I'm using the installed NIC: Intel ethernet server adapter i210-t1.
Our computers go powerless every night (mains power) after a normal pc shutdown. Every morning, when the power is back on, I want to wake up all computers in our building with Wake On Lan (WOL) by sending a 'magic packet' over the network.
This normally works well if the machine has been switched on and off with the power button / windows shutdown. But when I unplug the machine (mains power), wait and plug in the mains power again, the computer does not respond to the WOL packet. (Maybe the PCI-E NIC does not get power on plugging in the mains of machine for the first time).
It works well on the integrated (motherboard) NIC. BIOS / power / sleep state settings seem to be ok.

Hopefully someone here can help solve my issue, because I'm practically at my wit's end with it. I recently ran Lenovo's Updater program and it installed a few new things on my Laptop... I don't remember all of them, but I know one was a BIOS update, a Firmware update (can't remember specifically for what though), as well as a few programs I was missing on my computer (like Lenovo Power Management, just to name one).  It's something I hadn't ran for a good year, so I'm sure everything was using an older version! In any case, it seems after I did that, many of the games on my computer started playing worse.  Long story short, after checking out a few programs to monitor what my computer's doing (CPU-Z, and even Intel's Extreme Tuning Utility), I noticed that my Laptop's suddenly only using a portion of what it can do. For example, the core speed should be able to go up to 2.6ghz - 3.3ghz... but strangely, it's staying at a solid 1.20ghz the whole time. No matter if I run any graphic-intensive games or do anything else that might need some extra power, it stays exactly at that number. Here's the weird thing though.  If I unplug my Laptop and let it run off the battery?  It shoots straight up to the 2.6ghz-3.3ghz, as it's supposed to.  As soon as I plug it in again, it drops right back down to 1.20ghz and many of my games run like crap again. I've tried looking up solutions online, but I've found nothing that helps. I've tri... Read more

Long story short, Lenovo just sent me a replacement HDD for my T-540P. However, the old drive is still partially usable (but unbootable) at least long enough for me to hook it up to another laptop to grab the rest of my files. I've used such a USB cable on my work Dell, but I'm retired now and don't have access to that one   I don't know if these cables are generic or not, but if Lenovo doesn't carry them, can someone give me enough specs to find one on Amazon or elsewhere? This one is an example that was sent to me by a friend, as was this one but I'm software not hardware so I'm not sure what the HDD on this particular machine needs. TIA elaine

A:Adapter cable for old HDD?

Hi elaine,
 
You could probably use either one.
 
One other option would be to boot a live Linux flash drive (Ubuntu is easy to use) on your T with the old drive still in place and use it copy your files to that or another flash drive.  No need to buy an adapter.

(Sorry if this has already been answered. I tried a search of past threads, but I couldn't find a way to specify for "all words" of the search string to be matched.)

I have an older (much older) motherboard with AT power supply connectors. I'd like to get a newer ATX PSU.

Will an ATX to AT adapter cable do the job?

TIA

I don't see why not.
Most PSUs come with conversion adapters.

Hi, I've just bought an ENVY Notebook 15-as002na from HP's UK website. And, I need a European plug on the end of the 45 W AC power adapter. Problem is, the cable is proprietary HP, it has a right-angled 3-holed plug on the end that slots into the adapter, it completes one corner of this small square adapter. I've spoken and written to HP UK customer service and the spare parts team and they've forwarded me to http://uk.eetgroup.com/. All to no avail. Anyone know how to solve this? Thanks, Kolya

I just happened to brush against the connector of a USB/Parallel port cable where it attaches to my HP Laserjet 4 printer. It was so hot it burned my hand when I tried to disconnect it and it smelled like hot plastic. The connector attached to the computer end was not hot. It seems to me it shouldn't be that hot. If this is not normal, what is causing it - a problem in the computer, the cable itself or the printer. I've had a lot of problems since several powerful electric storms that hit my locale last Saturday. Fried my Ethernet card, but I'm working around that by using an external Ethernet card. Also knocked out my telephone answering machine and my garage door opener. Could the cable problem be related to the other electronics problems?

sounds to me like something is shorted in the cable. Try another cable and toss the old one

Not sure if this is in the correct board.  If not, please move the the correct one.   I want a security cable to lock down my laptop when traveling.  I have tried several cables from Best Buy and none of them will fit correctly.  The locks will fit into the port but must not be rotating completely for me to either turn the key or combination keys to lock the cable inside the port.  From the looks of things it appears this laptop does not have a standard security port!   Is there a cable that will actually fit and where can I find one?

The things you accidentally find out. My computer has seemed quite slow. Every once in a while, I follow the usual advice for speeding things up, but to no avail. I have Comcast cable and use Vonage for my phone service because I pay Vonage only about fifteen dollars a month and Comcast phone has been twice that. Today, I was offered a deal by Comcast that made it competitive with Vonage so I am switching over. I also asked the Comcast tech about my computer speed. He said I should be getting 8.0 Mbps. He asked me if I was using an adapter and when I told him I had the Vonage adapter, he said that would slow my speed down to about 4.0 Mbps. I thought there might be others who would profit from this information.

I guess I must mean kbps rather than Mbps.

Just recently, two weeks before I got my new video adapter: MSI Radeon R9 and as soon as I set up everything, the screen didn't display anything because the new video adapter didn't support my old used vga-vga cable.

Later on, (to be specific, today) I just got the desired DVI-D dual link (Dvi-Dvi) cable and connected it. I turned on the PC and the monitor did not display anything either. I also tried pushing the AUTO button on the monitor and switching to Digital source, thus nothing happened again.

All in all, monitor can't detect any Dvi-Dvi cable connection with my new video adapter and I'm sitting here watching E3 on tablet. Any help, please?
