Alright, thank you very much for your help, I do have one more question. I am looking up adapters on Amazon and I found what seemed like a suitable replacement, it has the same power cord as my recent one so I will asume it will work with my f700, however out of all the comaptible laptops its for it says Compaq presario C300 C500 C700 V400 V500 and more compatible part numbers 409843-001 380467-003 402018-001 381090-001 371-790-001 417220-001, is this a wise choice for a replacement because I wish not to order it and find it does not fit, but it come up when i searched for chargers for my brand of laptop.
Ok, thank you so much for everything. When it arrives, I will check it out and make sure it works, if not, I will take your advice and go to where I orignally brought it from (PC World) and have it looked at there. If it does work ok, I will send a reply letting you know how it turned out.
Thanks again for all your help! You guys are great!
