    Hi all !!

    Earlier this week I posted that my charger had fried and that I was gonna see if the warranty could help me out. Since I had no battery left I went to the Apple Service center around here and asked if I could borrow/rent a charger, they said they don't provide that service but that I could leave them the notebook and they'd charge it up for me.

    I picked it up about 6 hrs later and the thing was not charged at all. It would not even turn on. They said that since the AC adapter had burned maybe it had caused something in the computer and that I should probably leave it again to get it checked.

    What do you guys think could've gone wrong ?? I mean, I'm suere you get this kind of problems around here quite a lot, so what has been the usual experience ?? What can I expect it to be ?? Will Apple help me ??

    No more than a couple of days ago they had just changed the HD because it failed, so I have been computerless for almost a month now. It is driving me crazy and it seems like nightmare after nigthmare. Thanks for reading.

    no but in this case the charger is already screwed. The cable burned from the part where it meets the magnet. They charged it with one of their own.

    A month or so ago my Macbook wouldn't charge. To fix the problem I unplugged it, took the battery out, and then held the power button down for about 10 seconds. This resets the power management on the logic board or something...

    Hope this works for you. :)
