Unhappy New computer cord

Kibby's computer needs a new cord. I don't think I can get one before Christmas so I will not be on as much. Kibby, Hubby & I will have to share his computer.

It was also the computer I was using for Nanoing. I won't make 50,000 words this year.

Are you talking about a desktop or laptop?

I just looked at the pic of Kibby at a laptop over on the NKT. If that's the computer, I hope you know for sure that it's a bad cord. Laptops are notorious for breaking the plug in the computer that the cord plugs in to. Expensive to replace. Sure hope I'm wrong.

Defently the cord. I can see where the wires are broken.

Luckily I can get on once in awhile on Hubby's or my sister's computer.

If the wires are broken, have the hubby strip them, twist them back together, and put some electrical tape on them, given that he doesn't own a soldering gun. That will bet you by until you can afford a new one.

Which part of the cord is broken? The kettle plug bit (from socket to adaptor) or the bit that goes into the computer? Because you can use something like the plug for a kettle for the first part.

I hate it when that happens. Thankfully my laptop has a fairly standard plug (and I have some friends with the same brand of laptop :P )

The part that is broken is the part that plugs into the computer.
