Make Your Own Laptop Power Adaptor

I'm frustrated. i just had called a computer repair business in town here to see if they had a power cable that'd fit my laptop, they said yep, and they'd bring it out tonight, ie 5 mins ago. the guy came and left. the plug-in bit of the replacement was incompatible with mine, so he took my cable and said he'd call me tomorrow about it. I want to make my own power cable. a lil adaptor compatable with a standard PSU cable. however.... my skills are not as great as the sum of yours. Please Obi-wan we need your help.... err... Please AOA'ers, I need your help!

Many laptops don't run off a standard voltage. For example 15v, 16v, 19v and 21v are common laptop voltages.

I have taken a power pac from one laptop and changed the plug to fit another. You need to make sure the voltage and Amps are the same.
