Alienware m11x power issue

Hey all,

I have a 1st gen Alienware m11x (r1) I'm using for college

One day i woke up and my ac replacement charger was dead. I plugged in a spare one which works, but every time i plug in the laptop, i hear a pop sound with a electronic burn smell, but it still works after several seconds of no power from the AC brick.

so i'm stuck on what to do... should i buy an oem power supply?

thanks

Hi,

I bought it from amazon a few months back,but when i click on what I bought, the page no longer exists.

Here's all I can give

"YGJ New Laptop battery for Dell Alienware M11x M14x R1 R2 R3 8P6X6 P06T PT6V8 T7YJR [Li-Polymer 14.8V 4500mAh] - 18 Months warranty"

That's my order I did.

Hi,
Looks like the same as my first link = same warranty
I thought it odd it said only 500 charges over lifetime of the battery though lol
Which I would try and get a phone number or email from the seller to use the warranty on it
You might look into a docking station :/

What is a docking station?

Also, is it the battery that's causing my issue?

Hi,
Not sure if it's the battery but if the thing has a burning smell it sounds to me it is likely bad
Docking station I've never actually used one but hooks up to the rear connections to or like the battery does for more connections for display and other stuff on laptops
It has it's own power source.
I googled a bit but didn't see anything worth posting as far as from amazon...

What not get the exact Dell replacement? May cost more but in the end may be worth it.
