I would be amazed if you could locate such a part. These are not sold, as it is expected that if a power adapter is damaged, it should be replaced. Sorry for the bad news, but you will need to buy a new adapter. If it is any consolation, it would not have to be the "brand name" version, but could be a compatible "generic" if you want to save some money.

Even if it were possible to replace one piece of an adapter, it would not be a good idea, given the amount of damage (catastrophic range) that would likely be done to your PC. Please post back if you need more help. Otherwise, thank you for using and rating FixYa!

How do I replace ac plug in on a toshiba laptop?


You can buy any standard "universal AC/DC adapter". They will come with several different tips to fit your laptop. I bought this one for my Toshiba Satellite series and it works well:
LINK HERE. It is available in store and online at best buy.

There is also a cheaper one available from Walmart HERE. It is from Kingston and has a 1 year warranty so it should work well and have you covered.

Let me know what area you live in and I can track one down close. I have also bought one from Ebay that was cheap and worked without a problem. Let me know and I can look one up(ebay tends to be cheapest with power adapters in the 10-35$ range.

My Dell Inspiron 530 wont turn on


yes buy a power supply. I have seen hundreds of computers that have gone through storms. Remember a Dell usually uses a special power supply.
For a good deal look on ebay for your specific model, They almost always have "Buy it Now" deals.

TIP MELTED


I know it's kinda lame, but you might be able to get something from Radio Shack. Something else to try is to look at a universal power supply. Some have interchangeable connectors and one might work. By the way, I saw in a store this weekend there are "generic" laptop power supplies that come with several different tips as well.

I need a power tip for the kensington power adapter for my new dell xps M1730.. I contacted Kensington and they are not much help...


In the same boat. I've contacted Dell and gave him a good talking too. They sell the Kensington, advertised as compatible with XPS when it's not. It's false advertising and should refund you.

Faulty power supply on Acer Laptop. Not sure if it's the adapter or the laptop. Don't really want buy a new adapter and themn find out it's the laptop. On the other hand i have heard bad things about Acer...


If it is under warranty bring it to local repair shop that does warranty work for Acer. They should be able to test if adapter is still ok or if it is the laptop. If it is the laptop itself will need to send in for repair.

Hope this helps!
