You're going to need an AC adapter. You can go to an electronics store like Best Buy and pick up a generic one or you can order one online such as this one -

Your power supply is listed as having an output of 65 watts so any generic charger with a rating of 65 watts or higher will work. Just about every laptop adapter made these days runs at close 19 volts so that shouldn't be an issue and every generic replacement adapter I've seen doesn't have a way to switch polarity so that seems to be a standard between laptops as well.

Hi Uncle, here in the UK oem power supply are relatively inexpensive. Google:-

lenovo v570 power supply

to find the *correct* one for your laptop.

With one, you should be able to run the laptop, even with a virtually dead battery.

Remove and replace the battery 3 or 4 times to clean its contacts,

Consider purchasing an oem battery, also inexpensive,

Do not go for the cheapest, instead look for a higher wattage than the original, and a 1 or 2 year guarantee..

Good Luck - Keep us posted.

Thanks Guys! I bought a power cord and charged the battery! Now it won't accept my password. How can I change it if I can't get in?

I don't know what I'm talking about, but ... is it possible his
password got cleared, so he can use the default password?
Or would clearing the password mean he doesn't need one?

Passwords do not change themselves. Don't you find it strange that this person "Lost" the power cable for the laptop and then mysteriously does not know the password to start it up? A generous interpretation would be that this person "Found" the laptop. There are less generous interpretations of this scenario and regardless of the ultimate truth here we cannot help with laptop password issues.
