I accidently plugged the cable that powers an external hard drive into my Dell Latitude 500 laptops' ps2 port. Believe it or not, it powers the laptop up. The problem I have now is the only way my laptop can get power to work is if I plug,both, the external hd power cable into the ps2 port along with the regular power cable to the laptop. That's the only way it will work. Will not power up if either is missing. I can't go portable with the battery either. Any ideas?
