Made permanent damage with dc-dc adapter for laptop?! help!
Bought myself one of those adapters on ebay which can transform dc 12v to dc 19v-20v etc- up to 22v.
Well adjusted the adapter to 19v which my laptop ac-dc has as output and seemed to work nice. When I took the laptop inside 5 min later after just testing the adapter, I found out that my laptop won't recognize the ac-dc adapter or the dc-dc car adapter anymore if it's plugged in after the laptop is turned on!! So with other words; the laptop will only charge if the laptop is turned off ! and it will drain the battery when charger is plugged in!!
What gives??! What should I do. I feel this crappy little ebay item has destroyed my 2K laptop now! Anything to do with this?!
The dc-dc chargerd said too high voltage could give damage OVER EXTENDED TIME, but I only used it for like 5 mins before this happened!
The laptop is a Compal CL50 with a centrino shipset
Never read any similar thread about this, perhaps the lappy got 20-21V for like 2-3 seconds, but thats it !
