Charger died and killed my computer
I was watching a movie on my laptop while it was charging, aftermarket charger, not an Apple unit. I then heard a pop and my computer went dead and the charging cord smelt of something burning. I unplugged it from the wall and my computer safely.
I turned my computer on and everything was fine apart from the date and time.
Now it started to die and we didn't want to use the old cord to try to charge so I borrowed a real Apple charging cord and it wouldn't charge the computer, I tried numerous plugs but nothing.
I have my life literally on my computer, my family photos videos and more.
I'm not sure what to do if I let Apple try to fix it, or if there is a way to access my hard drive from a dead computer?
Is this a good question?
