HISTORY : I've always 'relatively' taken care of my Charger/Adaptor. I've never banged it on the floor. But I do leave it on like 24 hours a day, even if my MB's off, it's still charged on. That's serious. I couldn't think of a day that my charger wasn't on the socket. CASE: I was playing Sims 3 (perfectly legit) and suddenly the light on my charger went off. I thought it was a problem with my power socket so I kept changing where I placed it, but to no avail. Other electrical appliances run perfectly fine on it. PROGNOSIS: I rushed to Apple Store and they were a *tad* unhelpful in offering creative solutions. 1) They tried my charger on other laptops - wouldn't work. 2) They tried another charger on my laptop - worked like a charm. The not working part also applied when they sort of changed the power cord. ISSUE: Of course, Apple Store wants me to *BUY* a new charger. Yes, I'm no longer covered by warranty. I just thought that before I shell out 5-freaking-thousand pesos on a charger, if anyone could have any ideas on what I could do as a temporary thing? Thanks!!
