The laptop is an Acer 3680. Apparently, the original AC adapter failed. The customer (unwisely) replaced this with a 'universal' unit from Radio Shack. When this too failed, she purchased a replacement from Acer. This does not work at all -- it neither operates the computer or charges the battery.

I suspect the internal circuitry which both runs the computer and charges the battery.

Either that or the DC jack on the system board that the power adapter plugs into
