I have a small Dell Mini and the battery was going low so i went to plug it in and by mistake i plugged the cord in from my photo printer. The computer shut down with in seconds. I turned it back on and it works fine but as soon as i plug in the correct cord for the computer it shuts down with in seconds. I turned it on and back off and i plugged it in with the wall charger and the light shows it is charging but the computer does not charge. Can anyone let me know what I need to do to fix this or what the problem might be? Did I fry the connection for charging? Help!!!

Hello Loveqh,

You are right, you might have caused damaged to the hardware components or even the battery. The charger distributes a certain voltage of electricity and this should be respected.

This is what has surely happened and I will advise to send it to a Repair Shop for detecting which hardware component has fried. If ever it is the battery that has been damaged, you can easily detect it by trying another one on it.
