i had this accident just this afternoon and i panicked of course. i think its a power surge since i checked my charger and its now busted and wont work and my laptop wont charge even with my other hp laptop charger. now a question, i believe hp 1year limited warranty does not cover power surges, but does anyone know how much would it be for my laptop to get fixed? OMG, now i realize the importance of accidental warranty!! huhhuhuhu!!
