    Hello!

    Like 5 days ago my power supply adapter crashed suddenly. Now theres no green light (green light shows that its working) and theres coming out some weird sound from it. I took my adapter and went to check it. The guy said it`s possible to fix it, but since it`s the original adapter fixing can cost me 60-70$. But if I wanna buy a new one it`s 180-200$. At the moment I dont have money for fixing...

    Is there any alternative methods for charging your laptops battery. I might overheard but is there any way how can you charge your laptop using desktop pc, using some kind of cables and stuff?

    You can buy a good universal adapter for less than $70.

    $180-$200 for a brand new one is ridiculous

    What notebook is it?

    No theres no other conventional ways of charging a battery without going through extremes.

    No i havent heard of ACME before. Is it the same brand that Wil E Coyote uses to catch roadrunner in loony tunes?

    Theres 2 things you need to match with a universal AC adapter:

    Firstly is the power jack, it needs to fit properly

    Second is the AC adapters specs (watts,voltage,amps,hz)

    If you can find any AC adapter that can match these perfectly then it should be okay for your laptop
