    Default IU student needs quick fix on her computer

    Lenovo power cord/charger isn't working according to Geezerette. Bought a universal at Best Buy and the adapter marked for Lenovo doesn't fit her laptop. Her battery is dead and she desperately needs to retrieve a paper and a project IMMEDIATELY.

    Suggestions?

    Ahh PC Max across from Panera may have the proper cord. (Hoping to NOT have to go to btown today)

    Hopefully it's the cord and not the plug in on the laptop. My wife had an issue where it wouldn't turn on with any cord, it was the part inside the laptop that the cord plugs into that was bad.

    Nope and neither has a shop on 10th street (although they are still trying to help her)

    I may have to go down and bring it up to Fry's in Indy

    easiest method if urgent, is retrieve hard disk from notebook (usually 1 - 3 litte screws on the bottom) and buy a external usb case for it for about $ 10
    have the notebook fixed at leisure ( i believe ti is young so warranty perhaps>) and get tghe document of the disk on any other pc

    If it does, Lenovo has an awful warranty.

    Either she is terribly (how to say this) har....destructive or Lenovo's are crap. We just got it back from having the screen replaced (Thanks Gamble) which was NOT covered under warranty.

    My friend has a Lenovo and hasn't had any problems yet.

    Power cords are in dangerous spot at college, they get stepped on easily for one.

    What about borrowing or buying a second battery and slapping that in? Do new ones have any charge or do they come from the store on 0? Anyone know?

    Well if she is anything like my younger sister, I'm gonna guess she is terribly destructive. My Lenovo has been pretty solid so far.

    My work laptop is a Lenovo and it is a finnicky little devil. I had the first one two months before the hard drive crashed, and #2 is already acting troublesome. We are issued fairly craptastic Lenovos though.

    She got her's direct from Lenovo for a bit over $500.

    We had to have the screen replaced because she either dropped or stepped on it, she isn;t saying....but she paid for it.

    I just got a high-end-ish Lenovo, hopefully it doesn't give me too many problems, until this thread I've heard nothing but good from them.
