Cheers for any advice smile

Check on eBay. The best place for em by far.

BUT BE CAREFUL!!

Fookin Acer being the numpties they are use OEM HP power supplies which is fine, but they fookin change the connectors to crap ones, HP use higher quality connectors.

So even though OEM HP power supplies carry the same model numbers, they very rarely share the same connectors.

Thanks Acer for fookin things up as usual. Just make sure though that when you order a PSU, it has the right connector and you should be fine.

Acer are harder to find then HP lol.

You boguht it in Oz did ye not? Could be different as their not part of Acer EMEA iirc.

Could be harder to get one in the UK... but eBay should be fine as most sellers are from Asia lol.

My boss has gone through 3 PSU for Acer laptop, they seem to break real easy, and are expensive to replace.
