Fix Your Stuff

Right to Repair



Original post by: Carlos Oulman ,


I’m guessing you are using a travel adapter and plugging your charger into that. It’s possible that your computer is not getting the power it needs or somewhere along the line it’s gotten to much power. I’m not sure if that’s what actually happened or not. It at all possible I would see if you can try another charging cable from someone. Preferably one that has the correct connections and does not need to go though a travel adapter it that’s the case. As for your files, they will not be lost as they are stored on either a hard drive or some sort of flash memory if you have a newer laptop. If all else fails, you should be able to retrieve the data at a later time. Without knowing how old the computer is, it’s hard to come up with any other ideas as to why it may not be working but if it’s an older laptop then components in it may have just failed. A smart ideas if to back up your files with either something like Google Drive or Dropbox. I know it’s an easy thing to overlook and I’m guilty of not backing up my data as well as I should sometimes. Hope everything works out for you in the end.
