    This really sucks, I may have to cry.........so I just tried plugging the cord into my laptop and there's no connection! I've spun the adapter since usually it takes a few spins for the light to come on and the connection to happen, but now NOTHING! I need my laptop or I'll surely die, I can't believe this is happening to me. I'd love to go out and buy a MacBook Pro, but I just do not have the money. Even if I was just going to get it fixed I still dont have the money or tim to wait for it to get fixed, I really don't know what I'm going to do without my baby laptop :confused:

    Anybody want to buy me a MacBook Pro because I'm so cute and hung?

    Haha , you're awesome. Sadly it has to be a mac, guess I'll let you know first that it will probably be a LONG time til I'm on this board again seeing how I have 49min left on my battery and no money to get this damn adapter fixed or buy a new one, oh fucking life always has to give me some sort of issue.

    Macally makes replacement adapters for Mac laptops that are a lot cheaper than buying replacement adapters from Apple.

    I've had two Apple adapters go bad on me.

    Wonder whatever happened to this guy--Did he manage to puchase another adapter? Did he get one from an unsuspecting senior citizen at the Death Valley Home For the Aged? Did he adopt one from an adapter orphanage? (Millions of adapters are abandoned daily and need loving homes).


    Hopefully he will return and let us know--

    I'm so happy! I unplugged and tried another outlet and got a connection....but it's only a matter of time until this is permament, that and my screen being all messed up is a good reason for me to get a MacBook Pro. Guess I shall start saving up whenever I get a job.

    You don't need a new computer. :rolleyes: It's either a hardware or a software problem. Figure that out and you've cut the troubleshooting in half.

    Call up Apple and see what kind of warranty you have to see if you have any tech support.

    Fatigue failure (over a few years) of the AC socket where it's soldered to the mainboard is a common cause of 'dead' laptops. I don't see any reason for Apples to be immune. It usually entails a partial (or sometimes a complete) stripdown and a 30 sec solder job. Sometimes a new jack is needed if there has been a lot of arcing over time.

    Try wiggling it in the dark (the JACK!!:rolleyes:) and see if you can see small sparks from inside, that usually confirms the problem. Sometimes the centre pin fails and the outcome is that a $2 jack can cost $100 to fit unless you can do it yourself.

    One remote possibilty is, if you have an old LI-ION cell its fault protection circuitry can cause the board to refuse AC power. It's rare but possible, try using the unit without a battery or a different one, you have nothing to lose.

    I agree it's unlikely to be the power brick but you should try another to eliminate before spending any cash.

    Spend the time you have left backing up your porn (data) and whatever you value. Save it so you can get it back later. DVD/CD ROMS are cheap!

    HAHA, my porn is on my external HD....just some music that I should add on there that hasnt been transferred since last time and some pics. If you saw my laptop, you'd come to the conclusion that I need a new one....my screen is slowly getting worse after a fall my laptop took last summer. I just need to find a job and save up for a macbook pro :smile: OF course I always accept free macbook pro's from lovely LPSG'ers :biggrin1:
