    ive had this happen with 2 laptops before (one powerbook, and another gateway). for the gateway, i had it plugged in, then there was a power outage and it surged the computer. everything worked except for the battery (even after getting a new one). my powerbook was a little different. i had the adapter plugged into my powerbook, then when i plugged it into the wall, it sparked a little, then when i unplugged the plug, the computer shut off. it toasted the battery. did anything like that happen?
