|My sister and her husband have a faulty power cord on their laptop. When they plug it in the charge light won't turn on. They borrowed a cord from a friend who has the exact same laptop and it worked fine.|
It is a toshiba satellite a105 s2236 model psaaku-00906 and the powercord says "dc19v 3.42a"
They got a spare cord from a friend that says "HP 19v 3.16a" Might that work? Would it be safe to try? (would we have to worry about it frying their system or anything?)
If the voltage amd amp match, would any powercord work?
Otherwise, what methods are there to determine what cord will work on X laptop, without purchasing it and trying it first?
Is there a way to fix a broken laptop power cord?
