My laptop is having powersupply issues. I'm hoping it's just a break in the wire. I've ordered a 3rd party powersupply from ebay for $8. I'm hoping that's not a mistake, but the on brand is about $60. I love this laptop, but it's hinge is also showing the early signs of seizing.
Ah well. Hopefully it will last until I have budget again. At least these are reasonably minor problems.
