Great, got the new power cord but the laptop still doesn't work! GRR! Seems like the power thingie is shot, WHICH SUCKS! Hef's dad wants to get a new computer soon so I would get his old desktop. Good news for now, while Hef's dad is away I will be staying at his parents house with Hef and will have the use of his computer and camera, look forward to a week of THE HEF! Think Safety as Hef's dad flys from Buffalo to Japan and Hong Kong!
