Helix AC Adapter

2015-04-06, 19:48 PM

I bought a used helix 36984su laptop, and am wondering what type of ac adapter this laptop comes with when you buy it new. They sent my laptop with a cheap ac adapter that only works when the computer is in airplane mode. So I have never actually seen the adapter it's supposed to have. I tried buying a 45w adapter that supposedly works for helix laptops. It didn't provide enough power to charge the battery, so I had to return it. 

Solved! See the solution

Hello and welcome,


The AC adapter FRU numbers are at the top of the bill of materials.  Hopefully this will help you track one down.




You may be able to find it via Lenovo here (enter your MT-M): http://lenovoquickpick.com/
