Alternate laptop power

  Dane NQ 05:41 18 Sep 2007

My AC power supply for my old Toshiba Satellite has died. I have ordered a replacement but I would like to use my computer in the meantime. Can I power it through a USB port by connecting it to my wife's newer Notebook or the Ipod charger or something? It will be a few days until the new power supply arrives.

Thanks in advance.

No! Don`t even think about it. You need to have the right power supply otherwise you will blow the charger circuit board in the laptop.

OK cool. Thanks very much for the advice Taff.

Let us know what happens when the new charger appears.
