I put 32 volts into my compaq laptop


Feb 19, 2012
By accident I plugged in a 32 volt power supply into my Compaq F700 laptop. It beeped and the screen flashed. When I plugged in the correct 19v power supply it doesn't power on. What damage did iI cause?

Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

Posssible death and cremation in one go but the important figure is the Volt/Amperage which you get by multiplying Volts by Amps. On your power supply (the proper one) will be that Amp figure - possibly 4.74 on a 19V unit. What's the figure on the 32 Volt supply?

More importantly - what does the laptop do now?
