Has the AC adapter just failed on your Dell notebook? If you have a Dell Inspiron B130, B120, 2200, 1300, 1200, or 1000, or a Dell Latitude 110L or 120L, you need a new Dell TD230 power adapter.
Laptops such as the Dell Inspiron B130 were produced around 2006, so you won't find parts for them in the Dell accessory store any more. Fortunately, we have brand new Dell TD230 AC adapters in stock and ready to ship. These are original Dell parts, not no-name imitations with efficiency and safety issues.
Don't Trash that Laptop
When you have an old laptop, it might be tempting to just trash it and get a new one. If you have the cash, then sure, go ahead and get a newer, shiner one, but please reconsider trashing your old one.
Whenever you throw away a piece of electrical equipment, it needs to be dismantled and disposed of. Circuit boards contain harmful substances that need to be reused or destroyed of carefully. All too often, though, electronic waste ends up being shipped to third-world countries where workers are exposed to harmful conditions and the environment is polluted.
So, does it make sense to throw away a notebook just because the power adapter fails? A new power adapter doesn't cost much, and that notebook could serve you for another few years. Even if you want to replace it, there are other things you can do with it.
Things to Do with Old Laptops
Here are some ideas for an old laptop:
- Pass it onto the kids as their first computer: This will enable them to learn about computers without risking the cost of a new laptop.
- Set up a media center: You can use an old laptop as a media center to store and play all your music, movie, and home video files. OPENElec is completely free, and it makes it easy to install XBMC/Kodi, the best media center there is.
- Donate it: Not everyone can afford new computers, so why not donate it to a worthy cause? There are children both at home and abroad that would love a laptop, even if it's a few years old.
- Sell it: There's probably someone who wants a cheap but old laptop, so why not get some money back? If it's working, you might also be able to trade it in when you buy a new one. Just make sure you securely delete all your data first.
