Replaced Inverter

Went to see Battery World at Warners Bay to have my inverter checked as it wasn't powering some appliances, namely the laptop. They checked it, and while it did power up their drill on inspection, they did notice the red fault light flashing on briefly when the inverter was switched on and off. They took the inverter away for warranty checking.

1 week later, they sent me a new inverter - but sadly it is not powering the laptop! Perhaps there is something wrong with my laptop's powerpack. I have no trouble using it on 240 V, but it seems to not get enough from the inverter's 240 from 12.
