Your asking about the end that goes into the wall correct?

99% of the line cords I have seen (in the US) Have a green, white, and black wire where:

Black = Hot
White = Neutral
Green =Ground

I would suggest you use a multimeter to find which wire does what without checking it directly I would need More specifics about the laptop/power supply

The US National Electrical Code only mandates white (or grey) for the neutral power conductor and bare copper, green, or green with yellow stripes for the protective ground. Power will generally be black or red. 3 phase power will have three colored lines, the first is generally black or brown, the second red or orange, and the third blue or yellow..
i,e,
Yellow/Green is Earth so 'E'. Brown is live so 'L', and Blue is neutral so 'N'.

How to replace the power cord on my DW849 Buffer


Yes. The ground will be green or yellow-green, the neutral will be white and the hot is black. This is the standard 110-volt wiring scheme. The neutral is either the white wire or the SILVER lug, the hot is either the black wire or the GOLD lug and green is always ground. some power cords have a green and yellow striped wire instead of the solid green. Just be sure to replace each wire with the same color as the one you are removing

Ive got the red power wire hook up and the yellow 12v hot all the time but dont now what color the ground wire is or the speekers are


Your ground wire is going to be black. Your normal wire colors are violet and violet/black, green and green/black, white and white/black, last but not least you have grey and grey/black. Those are your speaker wires. Solid blue is usually to power your antenna, and blue/white is for your amp turn on lead. Those two wires are approximately .5mV of power, and you can actually use either one to turn an amp on. Speakers: normally your solid color is positive, while the black stripe is your negative. As for which one goes to which speaker, left front is white, right front is gray, left rear is green, and right rear is violet. Hope this helps.
