question: what do I do if my charger stops charging?
step 1 identify if it is the computer based receptor or the charger itself.
(tip! try someone elses charger)
step 2: take computer in to have recepticle replaced or buy new charger depending on the results from step 1.
with any other questions please refer to google.
have a nice day
