My sister's Toshiba Satellite Laptop's power supply (AC power cord adapter transformer thingy) has broken. It doesn't function as a charger, and it beeps continually whenever plugged into the mains. It is a PA-1750-09 made by Toshiba, although I've seen references as to it being made by someone else on the internet. I have found out from here and elsewhere that it is probably a loose component/wiring inside the adapter and she will need to buy another one. Two questions:

1. Is there a way to see if any other charger is compatible with her laptop (e.g. my Toshiba Satellite's PA3714E-1AC adapter or any of the other ones around the house? (I will get you some model numbers) or will only a PA-1750-09 work with that computer (I can get the further details of her computer make if required) Otherwise she is going to be without a computer for a while - inconvenient

2. Can anyone help me with instructions to open the thing up/have a look/solder if needs be? Or is that gonna be wayyy to difficult?

Many Thanks.

Pete

So we should not bother to try and fix the broken one?

Thanks

Only £12 for a new one anyway, I'm sure she can stretch to that. In the meantime she is using a spare charger with the same specs. (voltage and current)
