Hello, Hope someone can help me out with this.
The computer of a friend of mine has recently started shutting off unexpectedly and by its self. Literally checking emails one minute, black screen, no power the next. I have tried searching for software problems (which is my specialty), but none seem to exist. I pulled the power cord of the computer from the strip, to find that the left side prong has some electrical bite marks, and the middle third prong is split in three at the tip. I tried putting on a cheater plug (the thing that turns three prongs into two), but that didn't help. The cord is completely detachable, and I have one almost if not exactly like it, with prongs in perfect condition. Its a windows pc , 64 bit if i am not mistaken, all in one set up (no tower, just one big screen), has touch screen.
Do you think the prongs are the problem?
Do you think replacing the cord will work?
Could it be a different issue I am not aware of? if so, signs of said issue?
Thanks a lot in advance :D
