Question about Compaq Computers & Internet
Compaq has a habit of using what I refer to as a "mickey mouse" power cord, (because if you look at the connector upside-down, it resembles mickey mouse).
These cords ARE available in longer lengths at computer stores, but it might be cheaper and easier to simply buy an extension cord to plug it into.
Now, you say not compatible with your computer...are you saying that the computer connector AND the power cord are BOTH an issue, or were you just saying that this power cord would never fit your computer like most other monitor power cords would?
