Vostro 1540 AC Power Adapter

Jump to solution

I bought a Vostro 1540 laptop on EBay and it came with a Model LA90PS0-00, PA-10 family, DF266 power adapter. It powers the laptop o.k. but does not charge the battery.  Is this the correct power supply for this laptop?

A 90W adapter can be used in place of a 65 without issue.  If the system is not sensing the adapter (i.e., system setup/F2 is reporting the adapter as unknown), one of three things is bad:

The adapter itself,

The DC jack inside the system or

The mainboard.

Hi NO1BOOMER 

Thanks for writing to us. 

DF266 is a 90 w adapter, but the vostro 1540 goes only with 65 w adapter. 

Its an incorrect adapter.
