Power cord wiring, what is each color?

\015 I need to know which color is live, neutral and ground. Ive got a black with a yellow stripe, a blue, and a black.\015

Answers :

Your asking about the end that goes into the wall correct?

99% of the line cords I have seen (in the US) Have a green, white, and black wire where:

Black = Hot
White = Neutral
Green =Ground

I would suggest you use a multimeter to find which wire does what without checking it directly I would need More specifics about the laptop/power supply
