Power cord repair

\015 I broke the end off the power cord that goes into the computer Dell Inspiron 7500. It is part number 6g356. I have the plastic parts but I also damaged the metal prongs. Does anyone know where I can get those connectors or find a cheap replacement\015\012\015

Check here:
\015\012Their prices seem quite reasonable compared to an actual replacement costs from Dell or nearby stores that you could get them from or have them ordered.
You should be able to get out under $50. Just replace your supply. It should come with a new cord. Make sure your new power supply:\015\012(1) has greater or at least the same output watts of the one that you are replacing (should be on a sticker on the outside of the power supply itself)\015\012(2) has the correct connectors. Older power supplies did not have the power connectors for pentium4 and later processors or SATA hard drives.\015\012Trying to repair your old one may lead to a fire, or worse yet, arcing and voltage spikes and surges which will damage your computer.
