Re: Power Adapter Error message & Battery Not charging!
These chargers usually have this problem from wrapping the cord around the charger or by "over flexing" the cord. I have seen some cords where the outside insulation has pulled out of the DC plug because of careless handling. In addition, the small wire in the plug might be bent and not making good contact. Some people have had success by simply removing and reinstalling the battery while plugged in. Others claim the charger will begin to charge if plugged in after the laptop has been booted on battery power.
