Default My A/C adapter for laptop exploded!

Last Sunday morning, I was instaling vista on my dads laptop and, As I unpluged it from the laptop to get out all the knots in it, this bright light came from in the middle of a wire. I imediatly shut off the power supply where it was plugged in. And a huge cloud of smoke followed the insinerated wire. Obviously, i didnt try and plug it back in lol, so now I have no power to my laptop. Im looking on ebay to find one. Well we sent it in to repair and they say it could take up to 6 weeks to fix. So I want to buy one off ebay.
I was wondering if this is a good buy. I have two choices;

http://cgi.ebay.ca/Kensington-Univer...QQcmdZViewItem

or

http://cgi.ebay.ca/Universal-Laptop-...QQcmdZViewItem

thanks

The laptop is very similar to the Gateway 7426 , i dont have the specs off hand. But the laptop looks the same and is very close spec wise. Only difference mine is a 4000+, a X600 radeon card.... thats all i could see.
