I hav e a older hp laptop the the power plug in the back has become old and failed. i got it checked out and was told that i would have to replace the motherboard./ since then ive replaced the laptop. now i have the need for a laptop at work though (nothing special just to run some basic stuff on. ) i was wondering if it is possible to connect the power cord to where the battery would be? the battery is also junk. would that work? i havent checked out the power rating of the power supply and compared it to the batt, but it should work since they both power the same unit. also, the battery has multiple pins, compared to the standard + - of the power supply. any ideas on how to do this?
