My daughters power supply for her C640 has a pinch

\015 My daughter's power supply for her Dell Latitude C640 has a pinch in the power cord right next to where it plugs into the computer. The power cord still works but if the cord is bend the right way the computer shuts off. This has happened a few times and now her computer will not turn on at all, even when using my power supply. Is there a reset button or some easy way to get her computer to turn on again when using my power supply?\015

Answers :

I suggest you DONT USE PINCH POWER CORD FOR SAFETY.

\015\012 PLEASE TELL ME IS YOUR POWER CORD & THE PINCHED CORD ARE SAME? I MEAN SAME MODEL? AFTER PLUGING OF YOUR CORD, THE BATTERY CHARGING LIGHTS ITS ON? IF NO THEN I GUESS THAT CABLE NOT SUPPORT HER LAPTOP.
\015\012 VISIT A DELL SERVICE CENTER OR A SHOWROOM AND BUY NEW CORD WHICH IS MADE FOR YOUR DAUGHTER LAPTOP MODEL.

\015\012Thanks, i am waiting for your feed back & if you satisfied then thumps me please.
Hi,
\015\012
\015\012it seems that the battery of the laptop is totally discharged. if the battery of your daughters laptop is the same size and shae and compatible with your own laptop...please plug in the battery to your own laptop so that the battery gets charged and then you can turn the laptop on using the battery mode.
\015\012it would be better if you get the power supply replaced\\repaired as charging battery each time from your laptop will not be a permanent solution to the problem.
