Having problems with your PC Laptops ?
I believe my charger is dead
\015 My charger doesn't seem to work.\015
I think you need go vendor to replace it........a good laptop adapter website www.nevershopping.com
\015\012If you leave it plugged in does the casing of the charger get warm ? if it does then something is drawing current in there
\015\012Quickest solution is to get hold of a voltmeter read off the ratings on the label on the charger unit and check them out
\015\012Set the meter to AC or DC whatever it tells you then stick the red lead tip into the middle of the plug which goes into the laptop and the black one to the outside
\015\012You will get a higher reading on the meter than it says on the charger as ther is no load.
\015\012A favourite problem is that you pull the connecter out by the cable and the cable snaps inside the sheath.
\015\012If you measure no voltage at the plug tip then it is worth stripping back the insulation on the lead about 50cm back down the cable and testing it there.
\015\012If you find there is voltage take it into a electronics shop and get them to fit a new plug
