Hi folks,

I've been having a problem since a while ago and now, since I am abroad and in need of my computer, I am posting it here. I tried a search on the problem but in vain. Sorry if it is double posting.

My charger and my Macbook(bought earlier 2008, Intel based) usually work fine with each other. However when I move to a location, the charger just stops working. When it was still under warranty, I went to get it "fixed" but nothing really changed and I can't guarantee that the same fault happens each time, though now it is. Something was apparently changed on my Macbook.

One day when I had this problem, I tried to use my charger on another laptop and another charger on my laptop. Both worked fine and then magically started working fine together again. So weird...

I am guessing it has something to do with residual curent or something like that.

Any help????
