Having problems with your PC Laptops ?
Issue with Power Cord...and maybe more?
\015 I have a Toshiba Sattelite laptop. A couple of weeks ago, the laptop wouldn't power on. I took the cord in and discovered that the cord wasn't allowing enough "juice" to the laptop. I bought a new cord. The laptop worked for a couple of weeks (infrequent use) and not it isn't powering on again. I hate to buy ANOTHER cord, when I believe that there is a deeper issue shorting out the cord. Any recommendations?\015
Check the power rating on the new power cord and compare with the former.

Hi, I bought a liquid metalpad thermal interface cpu pad for my dell inspiron 5160 laptop. I replaced the old paste from between cpu and the heatsink fan. I cleaned the surface using alcohol.
