universal power cord
I have a universal power cord that i just got from a friend of mine for my dell inspiron 1300. I went on tragus, who makes the power cord, website, and it said that tip s3 is for my laptop. so i put that tip in with the cord connected to power, but the laptop doesnt turn on. it was working fine a couple days ago when the cord that came with the laptop died on me. i'm pretty sure it was the old cord that didn't work and not the power dock thing (idk what its called) because my laptop started up just fine with it, but then once i moved the cord, it died. and then the light that goes on when there's power going to the computer would go on, but once i moved the cord, it shut off. my battery doesnt work btw. could this be why?
