Laptop Charger

Discussion in 'Hardware' started by Weirfire, Mar 23, 2006.

    This might seem a silly question but is there specific laptop chargers for every different type of laptop or is there a universal adapter that fits all. I reckon my charger has gone faulty as it doesn't charge the laptop more than what it uses. It's probably just time to get a new computer.

    i'd imagine there are different chargers depending on the brand of the laptop and specific model (keep in mind that not all batteries are created equal!).

    Sounds like a software issue to me. Contact the manufacturer of the laptop and ask if they could email a patch for it.

    I had a laptop once which died after I poured coke on it :eek: and they emailed a patch to get it working again.:D

    I have found that they mostly all proprietary but that adapters often work across models from the same brand. For example we have a bunch of toshiba chargers around the office and they work with laptop from 5 years ago to todays model.

    It's definitely the charger thats gone faulty. It only charges when I put the lead in at a certain angle. I think theres a loose connection somewhere and the power isn't getting through the connections efficiently enough. I'm at 0% right now so if anyone has or knows where to get a laptop charger with model number 0227A20120 send me a PM with a price lol
