How easily things can go wrong....
...here it is... Saturday morning...and the transformer for my HP nx6120's power cable dies without warning. Not a good thing when there is a *lot* of work to be done and my battery is flat :o(
HP (of course) are closed. All HP Resellers are closed. All the open repair shops do not have a replacement transformer in stock.
Finally I find *one* store that with a brand of universal power supply with connectors that will fit into my laptop which is just as well because I was just about to call in a favour along the lines of "Hey, remember those 20 PCs you want me to buy off you? Meet me at your office in an hour" - $150 later I'm back working. Here is my lifesaver:
This laptop is not that old. HP are *so* going to hear about this on Monday.
