Power adapter modifications

Q: Power adapter modifications

Can anybody answer the following questions about a laptop power adapter?

Is there a maximum length for the dc cord? In other words why do they locate the adapter 1/2 way down the cord instead of closer to the outlet.

Is the small cylinder around the cord about 3" before it enters the laptop some sort of choke/filter?

Thanks.

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

There is no particular reason for this, either side of the power supply could be lengthened or shortened.

I have an HP Spectre X360.  It has power adapter, with a right angle end (blue tip) that plugs into computer.I HATE THE RIGHT ANGLE !!!  if I'm on the couch, it points down, gets extra pressure on it.if I'm on a table, it points front or back, and puts pressure because the cord wants to go to the side of the computer does anyone know of a patch cord, that would allow that adapter end to plug into, and then have a STRAIGHT blue-tip adapter end on it, so that I can relieve the pressure on this cord wire when I use it? any assistance appreciated

When plugging in the power adapter, the "charge" light does not come on, nor will the notebook power up. To rule out the HP power adapter I plugged in a Targus universal adapter (with correct polarity) and same result. Same results whether the battery is installed or not. The notebook had been in storage for several months, therefore, no recent changes. Any ideas?

My laptop will no longer turn on.  When the AC adapter is plugged in, the LED light is white indicating power is arriving at the laptop. However, nothing happens when I push the power button. Troubleshooting steps I have completed already include: Hard reset (several times including after each step below)Tried starting without the batteryRemoved all removable components and reseated themRemoved all removable components as well as bottom cover. Cleaned with compressed air. Put everything back.Nothing appears wrong and nothing happened between the last time it turned on and this time that I am aware of. The laptop is out of warranty, and I am pretty handy with computers. Is there anything that can be suggested short of a hardware replacement that would help get this resolved? TIA

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

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

I need a cross reference for these kinds of numbers.

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

Does anyone know of such a reference?

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.

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 read that you can increase the capability of the factory version by purchasing a "software key" that improves the OS.

Hi there,

So, i own a pc, a laptop and an xbox 360 and they are all connected to my home network via a router. now, when i have all three of these running at the same time it can cause a great deal of annoyance and confusion when we are all trying to compete for the most amount of bandwidth,

For example, my brother will be playing halo 2 and have msn open and i will be trying to surf the net on my laptop. now my brother will be complaing that he is not getting "host" and spends some of his games in red bar and my internet pages take a few minutes to load.

so i was wondering if there are any programs or freeware out there that i can go and buy so that i can modify it so that i can tell my router to give my xbox (lets say....) 60 percent of my bandwidth while splitting the other 40% between the two computers and then when the xbox is off it diverts the bandwidth to where it is needed most

If there is anything out there that can help me please post a name and/or link and it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

Hi all, I've been hard at work in modifiying my watercooling unit, I know it is not such a good product, but after modifications it is amazing. Soon I will post some pictures if anyone is interested. Here is a list of what I've done:

1. Drained the system
2. Took it apart
3. Took out all stock fans, replaced with Antec Led Fans
4. Took out the restrictive stock tubing, replaced with Tygon 3/8
5. Ran leak test for 3 hours, at the beginning there was one leak, which I fixed with some tightening of c-clamp.
6. Modified front panel, placed another grill, as well as the back panel
7. Modified knob lightning

After all this, when I replaced the tubing, I immediately noticed that the flow meter was spinning much faster, and this effectively reduced my temperatures about 2-3 Celsius at load. Replacing the fans, with better airflow and quieter fans also brought the temps down 1-2 Celsius, also the use of Danger Den MCT-5 Coolant brought my temperatures down 2-3 Celsius as well.
In the end, I used to get a load temp of about 44 Celsius, now I only get about 37-38 Celsius. Quite pleased with the project and acheivement. If you guys want pictures, or illustrations of how I did this, just ask. I will post them later.

New to XP (media center sp2), not new to Windows OS. Are there any "out of the box" tweaks/modifications that are recommended? Any XP tweak guides? I am not a gamer, don't overclock...just want it stable and lean without all the unecessary background apps running and dont need all the superfluous software.

For example, do many with XP disable system restore? I did with my old OS as I have an external HD withh system backup images. Should I keep the "enable write caching on the disk" checked in the HD setting in the device manager? Is Corel Photo CCentter bundled with any other software? I have many other questions, but willl settle for feedback first.

Also, if anyone has recently purchased a Dell E510 (or other Dell) can you tell me all the trial ware that I can uninstall? I am afraid to get rid of too much because I fear its bundled into other apps that I need. I curse the OEMs for doing this.

Thanks for any advice or links

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

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

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

Hello there, I am thinking of puchasing an M710 and I had a few questions I am hoping people could answer for me before taking the plunge. In terms of the power supply I belive its quite low wattage, in the low 200's - is it possible to upgrade this at a later date. I may down the line wish to buy a graphics card and I know it will need a better psu. In terms of graphics cards, the power should be the only issue, the case itself is big enough to fit some standard graphics cards. For RAM, how many RAM slots are there? if I get the 8GB option, is that going to be one stick of 8 or 2x4gbs - again if I want to upgrade this, will there be an available slot, or will I have to get rid of the exsisting RAM? I am going to add an SSD, will they automatically load the OS on the SSD as opposed to the standard 500gb hard drive? Thanks a lot in advance

I guess I'll ask this here as I cannot get through to RT Se7en Lite themselves. I used eicfg removal so I can have my install USB work for any of the versions. When I go to use RT Se7en Lite it asks which version I want to modify. I think the somewhat minor things I want to change will work for all if not most of the versions. Will it actually modify them all or is there any way to select more than one version or do I have to do each individually? Or run the eicfg after I do mods?

Also does anyone know what is with RT Se7en Lite? I sent an email to their support email and I get (several days of) messages that it is not deliverable: 454 4.7.0 TLS not available due to local problem. Their main website will never connect.

Hi all, I don't know a lot about computers, so bear with me... I just inherited an HP Pavilion HPE h8-1050 Desktop computer (http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c02859331).  It came with Windows 7, and I plan on upgrading to Windows 10 before the July 26th "free upgrade" deadline. (although I could be talked out of that, if it matters).   I would, ideally, like to install Realtek Audio Manager to replace the Beats Audio that the machine came with.  From what I've read online, it seems that it may not be possible.  I plan to do some audio recording on this new machine, and I don't really want everything filtering through Beats, with its kooky settings and sound manipulations.   I tried to download the Realtek Audio Driver, but after the install it doesn't show up anywhere (other than Add/Remove Programs, strangely).  It doesn't appear in Control Panel, or Device Manager, or Programs.   The only file that shows up in a computer-wide search is the setup file, which I've run twice.  I certainly don't have the option or access to choose it over Beats.  I have a feeling it's simply not compatible.   So I guess my question is this: Is there a modification I can make to this machine (ie, new sound card?) so that I can install and use Realtek? Or is Beats simply hardwired into the motherboard in such a way that there are no alternatives.   Thanks for reading,Nathan

Can anyone recommend any good software for logging computer modifications and maintenance? I support my family and friends and sometimes it's hard to keep all all the changes I have done over the years in my lil noggin. Also it would help me log fixes so I could reference if someone else had the same issue I could more easily reference the fix.

Hi,

I have been infected 2 days ago and Windows Update didn't work anymore (error code 80246008). So I have cleaned the corrupt files with MicrosoftFixit found on the Web.

Finally, I have got the BITS service working again with the following batch program wich calls himself the "BITS.reg" file :

sc create BITS binpath= "c:\windows\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs" start= delayed-auto
regedit /s c:\Users\fab\Desktop\BITS.REG
net start bits
rmdir %windir%\softwaredistribution /s /q
regsvr32 /s wuaueng.dll
regsvr32 /s wuaueng1.dll
regsvr32 /s atl.dll
regsvr32 /s wups.dll
regsvr32 /s wups2.dll
regsvr32 /s wuweb.dll
regsvr32 /s wucltui.dll
net start wuauserv

I execute this bacth file as Administrator and the BITS key appears in registry with Windows Update working fine.

The issue is that the modifications in the registry base is not taken into account for the next startup of Windows 7 : I can't see anymore the BITS key and I have to run this bacth program every time there's a new startup of Windows 7.

Is it a problem of right persmissions on this Key ? Have I got to change the owner as Administrator ?

Here is the file BITS.reg :

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\BITS]
"DisplayName"="@%SystemRoot%\\system32\\qmgr.dll,-1000"
"ImagePath"=hex(... Read more

A:Problem for saving modifications of registry in next reboot

Hi, lets get this straight you open regedit and the Bits service is there (as you posted). Then you restart your computer and do not run the .Bat file if you open regedit the bits service is completely missing from the registry? OR is it that Bits is simply not running in services (automatic delayed start)? Is your user name fab?

Hi - I'm new here so please be kind.

I have just bought a Packard Bell IMEDIA A3317 - 3G, triple Phenom core, graphics & sound integrated in motherboard, 320G HD, Vista Home basic. No driver discs included, but 2 created from within Vista for a) Vista re-install and b) Apps Drivers

I need to do ASP programming, so tried loading Win 2000 Professional (SP4) onto a new 320G HD. Sadly, the only screen resolution that works is 640/480 . I obviously need win2000 Pro drivers - since this is a standard package computer, one would imagine that they would be available as a block somewhere, but no joy in finding them.

The screen resolution hinders (prevents) setup of internet access, so I can't access Driver Robot over the net (driver robot needs to work on the machine with the problem)

There is a PCI-E slot, but am not sure if that would be a solution.

This must be a problem others have faced somewhere (or am I the only one!!!!! ) Any ideas on where to get a package of drivers? or what else I could do?

Thanks in advance

Tsarina

P.S. I know it isn't the best of machines, but my needs are very simple - just a little ASP development and writing letters.

I am running AdAware/AdWatch on Windows XP with IE6.
AdWatch is showing a continuous attempt to modify the registry. This is what the typical modification attempt log shows:
registry modification detected.

Ad-Watch event log
Root:HKEY_CURRENT USER
Key:software\microsoft\internetexplorer\main
value: search page
data:http://www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir.dll?prd=ie&ar=iesearch
new data:http://www.google.com

Is this connected to MS' Windows Live Page that comes up with the opening of IE6?
Any input or help on what is going will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
 

A:Ad-Watch showing continuous registry modifications

It looks like you had microsoft live search set as your search engine possibly when you installed a windows live component and then you installed something like google toolbar which wants to change it to google.

Did you approve or deny the change?

OR just turn off adwatch , make the change and turn it back on.

Hello,

I wonder what the best tool for Windows XP is for viewing recent (preferrably as specified by user) modifications to the registry, including hidden ones if that is possible?

I have disabled the Secure Boot, changed the Boot Priority ordem to USB drive and tried to install the Linux system. It shows a message of successful installation and asks to restart the computer. However, when it restarts, there is a message of Boot error and it asks for a Boot disk or a Boot removable device...I have real somewhere that the Boot should be in Legacy mode, but it on-line shows this option when the CSM option is set to always, however, without giving me access to that...

I bought a Dynex USB 2.0 4-Port Hub last week and have decided to add an external power supply to power the hub. The short and terse User Manual notes on the final page that a 5Volt / 2.5 Amp Power Adapter may be connected. I called their customer support number and talked to a lady, but her best advice was return to the store and ask there. My experience with this store over the years has been fat chance for this kind of request. Has anyone got a suggestion as to where I can purchase such a USB Power Adapter?
 

A:USB Hub Power Adapter

Radio Shack would be a good place to start although you might have to get one of their adjustable models. A Google search should also turn up something. Actually I just replaced my D-Link powered USB1 hub with a USB2 model. The old one is just sitting around and it has a 5V 2.4A adapter. If you want it so you can use the adapter just PM me and I'll send it to you.

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

A:Power adapter

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

my dell inspirion 15 cant charge the battery but the charger is quite ok and is charging other laptop properly, the laptop only powers with the battery power and when the battery is empty it wont power anymore please what is the problem and how do i solve it

A:ac adapter not cant power

Hi JASON55,
What is the exact system model? Are you using an original Dell OEM Adapter? When you plug in the adapter to the system, does the adapter stay firm or does it fall off easily? Is the adapter frayed? Is there any damage on the system? Could you test with another power adapter if possible?
Restart the system and press f2 key to enter BIOS - check the adapter status in BIOS with and without the adapter plugged in. Also, wiggle the adapter cable at the end and see if the status changes in BIOS at any point. Check the battery health in BIOS (if applicable).
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us. These are onboard diagnostics and they might possible pick some error if the hardware is not functional.
If another adapter works fine, then replace the adapter. If not, first replace the dc port and if it does not resolve the issue, then I would suspect a motherboard failure.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your Name for case records.
