HI I have an HP pavillion DV2210us series entertainment notebook. It is about 4 year old.My friend who is a computer guy replaced the motherboard last year.(variety of reasons). 1 reason my wireless didn't work had to insert an adapter to use.(now it works with the new motherboard).anyway, had issues with computer working. new mother board helped solved the wireless issue.Everything else worked after new mother board was replaced.. Now however i go to charge the battery and the adapter gets extermely hot to touch i have to put it on a dish or hot plate.I have read that some people have had fires with these cords.
Anyway, where do i get a new power cord that will work?I saw some on Amazon. Also people have had issues with customer service(HP) so not sure i want to deal with them or buy a refurbished one from HP.
PS It runs vista.
