Q:

Can i charge my laptop without its charger?

A:

A laptop can be charged without its original power adapter. However, there is no safe way to charge it without a replacement adapter or another charging device.

Although the best adapter is one made specifically for a particular device, the simplest solution may be to purchase a universal adapter, which works with any device compatible with the jack, amperage and voltage. Universal adapters are widely available at electronics retailers.

Portable charging devices include solar units that rely on the sun to recharge devices. Other portable chargers and battery backups must be charged or plugged into an outlet and then attached to the laptop.

  • Q:

    How do I format my laptop?

    A:

    To format a laptop, locate the restore disk that came with the computer, and save drivers and personal files on a burnable disk or external hard drive. Formatting the laptop deletes all its contents, so saving files you wish to keep to a disc or external hard drive is very important. After ensuring that all the necessary files and drivers are saved, access the computer's BIOS from the startup screen, and then set the first drive to CD. Reboot if necessary, and follow the prompts provided by the restore disk. The entire process can take anywhere from several minutes to well over an hour depending on the size and speed of the laptop's hard drive.

  • Q:

    How does an atom become positively charged?

    A:

    An atom with no charge becomes positively charged when it loses an electron. When this happens, it is called a positive ion. If the atom gains an electron, the atom becomes a negative ion. In either case, the number of protons in the atom’s nucleus does not change. More than one electron can be removed from an atom to give it a positive charge of +2, +3 or more.
