i have dell inspiron n5110 i7 with a power adapter of 130w,
the adapter is getting very hot and i plan to replace it,
is there a power adapter greater than 130w(e.g 230w) that will fit with the laptop?
There are higher wattage adapters, yes -- however, you might want to see if the adapter heats up less with the battery removed from the system. If so, it may be you need a new battery - not a new adapter.
thank you for your answer,
however, if i unplug the adapter from the laptop while it is still in the electrical socket, and i plug it back in the laptop, i receive the msg " adapter cannot be determined", so i need to shut down the laptop, unplug the adapter from the electrical socket for about 1 min, then plug back and start for msg to go away,
is it normal for any adapter or is the adapter faulty?
It could be the adapter -- or the DC jack or mainboard. First try a new OEM Dell adapter (NOT a third party unit) -- if that doesn't solve the problem, replace the DC jack next
And if that doesn't solve it, replace the mainboard.
thanks again for your reply,
could please refer me some adapters that are more than 130w(e.g 180,230) that are compatible with with this laptop model
