Having problems with your Compaq Presario Notebook ?

Plugged in with printer cord

\015 My laptop was plugged in with a printer cord.. now nothing works. what would be wrong\015

Answers :

It may have only blew a fuse on the motherboard. Thing is it's surface-mounted to the board. You might find a shop that will take a chance at it.
If you plugged in the wrong power adapter you could have very well fried it. Each device such as a LAPTOP or a Printer used different volts, or amps, etc they are not interchangeable even it it fits!

Sorry but if its fried its dead..

Printer was turned off at the button. Computer then turned off at the wall. Power supply at wall turned back on, then on button on printer pressed, but printer would not go on. I don't think it is the cord. Sometimes if we plug and unplug and wiggle it, the printer will start working again, but this time, so far it hasn't. Is the problem a fuse? If so, can I fix it myself?

I can only guess at your power cord, but I assume by your wiggling comment that it has a single chrome barrel connector. If that is the case you will most likely have a broken wire inside the insulation directly behind the barrel connector itself. An ... Computer Monitors
