My wife thinks one of the kids threw out a bag of her stuff that had her laptop charger in it. :/ So, she bought some universal ones. They were working for a while but now... that computer wont turn on. We believe it's just a dead battery... however, the universal charger wont work. We have two and we tried both. The light comes on, on the charger itself(power cord) but no lights show up on the laptop. It's not getting anything.
I am worried that someone messed with the settings on the universal, maybe set the voltage wrong or something, and something got fried.
Any thoughts on this? And if so... how am I supposed to figure out what to do next? Is there a way to troubleshoot the issue? Did the jack get fried? the MB? anything?
Anyone have any cheap or free indestructible laptops by the way? HA. My family does not seem to know how to treat these things. I try to get them not to use them on the couch and leave them plugged in there unattended but, it still happens.
We have one Dell that has been to hell and back... the case is not attached in one corner where the hinge is so when it is open there's a big gap there. It's our oldest laptop and in the worst condition and it still works. ha.
I have to figure something out with my wife's laptop because she's not to happy not having one right now. So please help.
