I bought another Acer laptop like Dec. 19 of last year. Which was like 3 weeks ago. And on Thursday Jan. 8th, the power adapter quit working!
No harm to the CPU (that I can tell), battery is fine. Used the old laptop's (also Acer) adapter and works just fine. But it will suck *sharing* the adaptor w/my teen (who inherited my old laptop). I'm temporarily using an adapter that belongs to my wife's old HP (wife's idea). The connection is very loose and I'm paranoid that contiinued use of this adapter could result in damage to my new laptop.
And I did send off an email about possible warranty service, but so far, the enthusastic lack of response is less than anticipated. And Best Buy (place of purchase) won't touch it because it is past their 14 day return policy period, and I did not get the ESP (again, the wife's idea).
So the question is, should I stop using the HP adapter on the Acer asap?
