Having problems with your Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook ?

Battery ac adapter overheats

\015 I gave my Acer Aspire 3000 to my daughter three years ago. She just gave it back and said she had replaced the battery adapter. The first one melted the connecter at the computer and the second one got hot also. I plugged it in and got nothing. Checked it with a volt meter and there was no power. I bought another universal adapter, plugged it in and the computer came on and booted up. After ten minutes the connecter was hot enough to burn skin and the adapter itself was very warm. Help, please.\015
