Is there anyway to charge my laptop thru my computer?? My ac adapter is bent to the point where I must hold it in a certain way for it to charge an thought I could save the 90.00 for a new one.

Your notebook needs a power source to charge. Without the adapter the notebook has no way to charge the battery. Think of it like a cell phone. You need the adapter to charge or eventually *poof* it turns off. Adapter is needed.
