Please click on your username and update your basic location so we know if we have a language issue to work around.

I am not sure I understand your problem? Has the voltage converter you are using failed? Why would you be looking for the old one if you bought a new one to replace it? Do you have access to a voltage tester to make sure the adapter is your problem and not an internal power supply having failed?

The voltage and polarity for what you need should be formed right into the plastic of the female connector?

Look at the female plug on the back of your computer. There should be a tiny little diagram near it, molded with the plastic, showing what voltage you should plug into it. It will also have a diagram showing the polarity expected.

I still fear I am having a language problem with you. Can you at least post the country in which you live to your account? Just click on your username. I hate to sound harsh but I cannot spend more time trying to help you until you do.

What is the voltage of the battery? Now that you know the polarity, that is what you need to match.

There was a place near where I used to live that junked old computers and recycled them to get at the precious metals. The place had bins full of old power adapters they would give away or sell for next to nothing.

I cannot remember if I read it on this site or another but hotels are also good sources for power and charging cords for computers and phones. People forget them when checking out of their rooms.

Good luck! I fear at some point you put the wrong voltage to the computer power supply and burned it out.

Where I am? PB computers are the worst and nobody would bother fixing them.
