Hi,

Basically I have a question to put forward to learned head. Recently my laptop charger exploded partially, rendering it (obviously) useless, and I am now left with a laptop that I desperately need to use, but has no power.

Is it possible to charge it via another means, or am I left with no alternative but to set my work back 6 days which I desperately can't afford to do considering the fact the deadline is Tuesday morning.

I attempted to connectt the laptop to the PC I am currently via a FireWire cord, but, as expected, the computer couldn't directly feed the laptop power, nor can I switch the laptop on to somehow transfer the files I need onto it.

Is there any other way that doesn't involve dismantling the laptop to retrieve the hard drive and buying a hard drive enclosure/connecting it via IDE?

Thanks!

Hi Welcome to TSG!!

Any chance of getting a charger from a local computer shop?

They're sending an HP charger to me free of charge (it's the third time I've had to change it in 10 months, the first charger had the wires giving off sparks, the second charger simply ceased functioning, and this one blew a chunk of plastic off after 5 weeks of me owning it)
so buying one would be profligate.

Nothing else I can do then?
