My laptop's power cord died a death overnight. I've changed the fuse, but nothing happened. I've got 50 minutes of battery power left. Ugh. Luckily, the laptop is still under warranty, so I'm just waiting for Dabs.com to send me a copy of my e-receipt, to forward on to Acer. I should have known better than to get another Acer. Grr. I should still be around, as I can use Wayne's laptop until I get the new power cord.
