Dell SmartStep 200N NOTEBOOK - When I plug the AC Adapter into the notebook, the screen fades to dark.
 
Hi,

I have a Dell SmartStep 200N NOTEBOOK - Windows XP Pro

When I plug the AC Adapter (9t458) into the notebook, the screen
fades to very dark (not black). I can still be some images on the
screen, it doesn't go 100% black.

When I discconect the AC adapter from the notebook, the screen is
perfect.

Could some component inside the notebook cause the adapter to
malfunction?

Should I replace the adapter?

There are recalls on some of the AC adapters that Dell has put out. You
might want to find out if yours is one of them.

Y'know, JLA, while your input is welcomed, your
advertising signature smells alot like SPAM.
