The connected AC adapter has a lower wattage than the recommended model which was shipped with the system. To boot with the AC adapter, please connect the AC adapter which was shipped with the system.Press Esc to continue. This is the message I get @ boot... and lately I also get an error message as soon as I log on to windows: Incorrect AC adapter is attached.This AC adapter may not provide enough power to your ThinkPad. Please reconnect the proper AC adapter.To buy additional AC adapter, click here. What the hell? I've googled it and some people say that reinstalling the Thinkwantage Powermanager might fix it. If not call warranty support. My W520 is only a couple months old **bleep** it... 2000+$ machine...

I went to use my thinkpad t23 the other day. It came on in battery mode even though I had it plugged in. The battery seemed to drain faster than usual. Could the ac adapter have gone bad?
 

A:thinkpad t23 won't use ac adapter battery dead now

That's what it sounds like. Any way to test it? Do you have a meter? Does it still get warm when plugged in or emit any hum?

Here's the picture of the part:

Hey everyone I bought a sexy *** ACER Extensa 4620-4605 laptop from eBay. $400, only no OP and no AC Adapter (Charger)

I go to acer.com, takes me to store.acer.com

I was trying to find a slim power adapter for my Precision 3520 with Xeon processors.  I ordered the 90-watt power adapter since the slim 130-watt adapter has a 4.5 mm connector.
I powered up the laptop and received a warning message that the 90-watt isn't enough (the laptop came with this wonky 130-watt adapter that is pretty big).  I ended up ordering a 130-watt adapter with 4.5 mm connector and I'm waiting on a 4.5-7 mm adapter to get here to make it work.
Today I thought I would try it out.  I hooked the 90-watt adapter up with the battery at 80%, opened up Kaspersky and started a full scan while also performing a backup, opened up the Netflix app and started streaming a movie, then opened up Philips SpeechExec Pro to transcribe with Dragon Medical Practice Edition in addition to the following apps: IE, Edge, Outlook/Word/PowerPoint/Excel/OneNote 2016, Sonos, Pandora, Amazon Music, Weather, Weather Channel, iTunes, Dropbox.  I was connected to an external monitor via HDMI and had the laptop lid open so the built-in screen was also on.
The 90-watt adapter was more than enough, although the charge took a long time to get to 100%.
I'm posting this in case anyone else is wanting a slim power adapter instead of the large one that comes with the laptop.  Google searches didn't find anything productive, so hopefully this will show up for anyone interested and that Googles it.

Does anybody know if they make or where to get an adapter so I can use a 170W power cord that has the W530 round tip with slots in a P50 with the square power slot?    

A:Lenovo W530 to P50 power tip adapter?

I believe there is no such thing.  The laptop's power circuitry identifies the power supply by checking the resistance between the signal pin (center) and ground.  First, none of the adapters available pass through the signal pin.  Even if you could find an adapter that passes it through, it wouldn't work.  The round tip on the W530 uses 1500 ohms for a 170-watt adapter.  The slim tip (rectangular) tip for the P50 uses 1900 ohms.

Hey guys, I purchased a W530 back in 2013 and it's served me VERY well over the years. The AC Adapter finally squeaked it's last today (constantly does quick squeaking noise when plugged in and it won't charge my laptop anymore). So I go into the store to find a replacement and I can't seem to find a 170w that's compatible with my w530, they all have this rectuangular connector compared to my round one. That can't be right, right? Or is my laptop just too old now? I JUST bought a new battery for it and I don't want to give up on this litlte beast that could. Does anyone have a reco as to where I might be able to purchase a compatible AC adapter fo this, brand new?

Hi all experts, I need help with my Hp pavilion 23-q010 all in one computer. It can't power on (ac adapter is doing lower beeping continuously when plug into computer.What I have did was:1, isolate the hard drive and remove the ram then put same one back in. Still no power come on. CPU fan no run , no see the light on the motherboard.2, I had test ac adapter with multimeter, it has 19. Volt.Any sugguestion would be appreciated. Just bought this one half year.

A:Hp pavilion 23-q010 can't power on, ac adapter does lower so...

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 have contacted my ISP and my router is working fine. I'm on a different computer and it is working fine as well, so there's something wrong with my computer. I have contacted a representative and they said they could not help me either.

But surely someone here will be able to help hopefully.

I have tried everything I know to fix it. I cannot connect even if I'm using the ethernet cable.

The computer is an Acer laptop and I have Windows 7.

I have a Palm IIIxe with a 56k palm modem on it. It works fine when I connect it to a phone line. I would like to use it when I am in the middle of nowhere with my cell phone. Is there an adapter to do this? The phone is a Samsung SCH-3500. I found adapters for the phone to hook up to a PCMCIA slot card or serial port of a mobil device to use the phone as a modem. I don't want to do this though. My palm already has a modem on it. Maybe some cheap thing to hook to the ear piece and a normal rj11 wire coming out of that?

Any info will be appreciated.

Hi, so I hope you guys can help me with this. I want to buy a mini usb to headphone jack adapter like the one above for my cell phone. They say that that one is for Motorola phones. My phone is a Toshiba Portege G710. It has a mini usb port and mini usb headphones work with it. But will this adapter work even though they say it's for Motorola? In other words:
Are the connectors used for audio the same on all USB plugs?
(After all, it's called "Universal Serial Bus")

Thanks for replying, I'd really appreciate it.
 

A:mini usb to headphone jack adapter compatible with every cell phone?

even though it says USB, when it comes to cell phones they are not wired all the same. I would look for an adapter made specificall for Toshiba Cell phones. The manufacturer of the one that lists it is for Motorola Phone may also manufacture one for your phone.

The only way it will matter is if you transfer large files from one computer to another inside the router. Your ISP speed is much slow so it wont matter

Hiya, first time poster, long time reader here. My wireless adapter, a Qualcomm Atheros AR9485, periodically seems to "shut off". I lose internet connectivity, become unable to connect or find any networks, and my adapter's status in network manager has a red x and says "Not Connected". I'm unable to disable or reconnect the adapter, diagnosing it leads to a message saying that the problem cannot be found and the only way i've gotten it to work again is to restart or force shut down my laptop. After doing that, sometimes it'll be disabled or still say not connected, however, diagnosis works now, and will claim that network connectivity is turned off, which is easily fixed. I have no idea what's causing this, and after performing a full factory reset for an unrelated reason, the issue still persists. I did manage to save some event logs from around the last time this happened, but i have no idea what any of them mean.

Hi There,
 
This is my first time posting in here too, I am sorry if my english is not so good, I try what i can to help...
 
i not sure have you try the following. what is the model of your notebook? As i understand that you say that you did a diagnosis, can you let us know what kind of diagnosis is it.
 
1) Is this diagnosis done in Windows or via Bios diagnosis (where when system start up, you press F2 to go in to System diagnosis.. example for HP model)
As from experience when i call up those tech support (Eg: HP or Lenovo), they will ask you this question. Mostly, the best option to diagnosis is via the bios
So, can you try this and see if you get any error message...
So far from your error message, the first think i can think of is the driver.... or some conflict some where
 
 
2) As from what you say, full factory reset... as in a full fresh OS re-installation to factory default (where it is like when we first time switch on our new computer)... Coz i trying to understand is that factory reset or just Windows System Restore.
When i just did a google, base on your Wifi model, it seems to be a HP notebook, have you try to install the latest Wifi Driver?http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=ob_123851_1
If it is not HP, Pls try to update your Wifi Driver from your notebook Maker.

Hi all,(I did search for this but couldn't find an exact answer. So in case this has been asked before, just point me to that link and sorry). What is the difference between the 65W and 90W charger (if any?) Is it worth spending the extra $55?











Solved!

A:ThinkPad 65W vs 90W Adapter

The 65W is smaller than the 90W but provides less power.For which model are you buying the adapter?

Is it possible to use the ThinkPad 90W AC Adapter with a Thinkpad P51 with Xeon 1505 and the M2200 GPU? Am a coder so I will rarely use the Nvidia GPU at all but don't want the CPU, memory, SSD etc. performance to be affected by a to small charger. A related question, does the Nvidia GPU kick in automatically when using an external monitor or can that also be used with the Intel GPU? Only doing office work so no gaming, 3D modeling etc.

Just bought XPS 13 (9350) updated to latest BIOS 1.3.3.
When I connect USB-C to VGA adapter - in a minute left side of PC starts to overheat, fans starts spinning intensively and battery forecast drops from 13 hours to 1.5h..
I don't even connect a monitor to the adapter, and not connected to OS, as this happens logging into BOIS as well..
If I unplug the adapter - in 30 seconds PC cools down, fans stop.
Is this a normal? It seems I cannot even connect a projector without plugging PC for charging during 1.5h meeting.
I saw some similar issues with XPS 15 here http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3518/p/19676323/20899854#20899854 
Anyone faced something similar? Or my device is somehow broken?

Hello all, We have several HP Probook 4530s notebook at our company. One day suddenly all Probooks can't connect to wifi. We changed wifi adapters drivers Qualcomm Atheros AR9285 802.11 b|g|n Wifi Adapter with Qualcomm Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter from device manager manually. And problem solved expcept one probook. When we update driver Qualcomm Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter it constantly changes driver with older version. Pc can get ip but can't reach local network or internet. All the other probooks use athw8x.sys for wireless driver. But this probook even if we change driver uses athwnx.sys driver.  Thanks for help.

I came home from work today to no internet connectivity. With a little digging, I landed on the issue of Network Adapter not connected. The compter appears to have a hard-wired network adapter, so there is nothing that I can find to re-connect. Any assistance would be amazing. Let me know what info you require. Thanks in advance!

A:XC-603G Network adapter not connected

Do you have anything else connected to the internet at home and working?Are you using cable or wi-fi?What do you mean by: "The computer appears to have a hard-wired network adapter, so there is nothing that I can find to re-connect" ?  Do you think the hard-wired adapter is connected?So many questions right?! :/

It reports connected, no internet. This happened to a tp-link usb and a netgear, both new. Confusing.

Turns out, its a Windows 10 update. I tried both usb wifi adapters, editing the registry removing leftover entries between installs.

Still happened on both. Restored Windows 10 to before their critical update and the netgear usb wifi adaptrr (A6210) works. Be careful not to clean up after a Windows update as that can kill the restore possibility. Thanks Mickeysoft.

I have just inst6alled Win XP Pro SP3 as a dual boot on my win7 Machine.
I had a few problems getting it to recognise my wireless adapter but I have managed to rectify thast problem.
The problem I have now got is that when it notices my router it starts to connect to it ok but then stays on Acquiring Network Address for about 10-15 seconds and then just restarts all over again. I know there isnt a problem with the adapter as I am using it now on my Win7 OS,,,I have given it the correct details for me WEP passcode and setup everything else properly, I have laso tried using the adapters own wireless setup utility but i had even more problems with that.

I hope someone can help me as I really need to use
XP for certain things that I use online which are not very good on Win7.

I hope to hear from someone soon

Many Thanks

Steve

mSATA to 7 pin adapter for SSD or HDD: mSATA to 7pin SATA Adapter

reviews on Amazon.com: Amazon.com: Micro SATA Cables - mSATA to 7pin SATA Adapter: Electronics

I ordered a Dell XPS 8500 Special Edition desktop with a 64bit Windows 7 Ultimate OS installed on a 500GB Samsung 840 SSD and a 3TB HDD for videos/music/documents/etc. I want to install Windows 8 so that it will be a dual boot system along with Windows 7. Each OS will be on a separate SSD. I have an empty mSATA port. So, I've ordered a mSATA to 7 pin adapter like above to connect a 256GB Samsung 840 Pro SSD to and to install Windows 8 on it. I understand that this mSATA connector should make the 256GB SSD bootable.

The desktop comes with an OEM Windows 8 installation disk. I have a Windows 8 Pro upgrade disk. What would happen if I had to install Windows 8 a second time on the same SSD on the same desktop? I've read that the 8 Pro upgrade deletes the original OEM serial number. How would I install Win 8 again if I would need to for some reason? Would I have to purchase another edition of Win 8?

With the 3TB HDD, I would like to partition it so that both Win 7 and Win 8 can use it, but on separate partitions. How would I do this? Would it be like any partition? GTP?

Thank you for your help on this. I'm not well versed in computerology. I am a 61 year old rookie, so to speak.

You can only install one of the OS's (windows 7 or 8)






I have a Windows 8 Pro upgrade disk.



If you install Windows 7, You can upgrade your Windows 7 x64 with the Windows 8 upgrade, but to dual boot you will need the full version.

Upgrade to Windows 8 - Microsoft Windows

If available in your country or region, Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro System Builder products can be purchased at participating stores, you'll need to ask a sales rep for more info.

Hi,I have windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. I own HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook Pc. The model number in detail is dv6-1330ev. The serial number of this notebook is CNF9414LZN. The model of my wireless adapter is Intel (R) WiFi Link 1000 BGN. Suddenly, the wireless network adapter stopped working and says "Not Connected - No connections are available" while there are many neighboring wireless connections available including my home wireless router which is close to it and my iPhone is currently connected to it. The wireless adapter is on.  I have tried many things but still didn't solve the problem. I disabled and enabled the adapter many times from device manager and from network and sharing center. I uninstalled and reinstalled the adapter driver many times using the ?scan for hardware changes? option in device manager and downloaded the latest driver version from HP website. I updated the BIOS from HP website to the latest version which was released in 2011. I updated the driver from device manager and it said I am running the latest version. When I troubleshoot the wireless network adapter it didn't detect anything. I disable Windows firewall, reinstalled the driver again, then tried to add a device from devices and printers, but it didn't detect my wireless adapter. I also installed the latest HP Support Assistance software and it didn't detect or solve the problem. Just to mention, my local area connection works fine when I plug the ethernet cable.Ho...
