Ok, I know that is a dramatic stretch, but I don't know what else to believe. So, the backstory: I have had my HP Touchpad for almost a year now, and I had booted CM9 about...2 weeks after I got it? Which is sometime in December. Ever since, I have been updating it, and I am currently using a nightly, though I don't remember which it is (I haven't updated for a while). Anyway, about 6 months after I got my Touchpad, the usb cable that came with it broke. I learned to deal with the loss because I heard that many other people had the same problem, and so I used the cable of my phone with the ac adapter that came with my touchpad, no biggie. But then...that cable broke about a month ago... My dad bought a touchpad shortly after my own, so I started using his cable with my adapter to charge my touchpad, and I learned to cope. But then I bought a (cheap!) usb cable so that I wouldn't have to borrow his...and that's where the problem starts. Recently (in the past week) I've noticed that my touchpad wasn't charging...like ever. Then I started noticing that EVERYTHING my touchpad touched...DIED! The AC Adapter that came with my touchpad: Stopped working...with anything My usb cable I bought: stopped working (I can deal with this) My DAD'S ac adapter: stopped working (what?!) My Dad's usb cable: completely and utterly useless! (This I don't understand) My dad's usb cable is my biggest problem. It was working perfectly with his touchpad, but then I plugged it into my touchpad and it didn't work, so I plugged it back into his touchpad...and it's not working. I'm completely baffled, what is going on?! So my real question, is my touchpad the culprit? Is there something I'm missing? Is there any hope for all the newly broken cords and adapters? (Most importantly my dad's...because he doesn't know it's broken yet) **Sorry for the long post, I just wanted to include everything** Thank you for any and all help!
