Question about Gateway Computers & Internet
I purchased a new power adapter online for this computer. The original part number appeared to be no longer available and the number subbed up to an adapter that had a higher wattage, but they said it should be no problem. When it was plugged in, it smelled hot and sizzled, so it was disconnected immediately. There is some confusion, because when i look up this model, the adapter is 2 prong.. but the one with this computer is 3 prong.. this is why i used the part number off the adapter rather than using the model number... have I ruined my computer?? (adapter was replaced because the old one gradually stopped charging, had to hold the power cord at certain angles to get the current to go through, and then stopped charging altogether.)
