With some careless usage of the laptop, it may not often but possible that sometimes our laptop adapter may fall off to the floor. Then the ac adapter may totally broken or just the case cracked. In fact, a cracked AC adapter case should be fixed immediately or discarded and replaced with a new one. Having a damaged power supply is a hazard that can cause personal injury since the current is not properly shielded by the case. If you have the materials necessary to fix your cracked AC adapter case it can be repaired quite easily and just follow what I did for my cracked Toshiba PA3237U AC Adapter.
Make sure you could prepare these tools: such as Super glue, Vise clamp etc.
First of all, turn off the laptop and put the adapter far away from laptop or chargers. Let it cool down totally.
Then carefully apply super glue along the edge of the plastic where the Toshiba PA3237U AC Adapter case has cracked. Make sure to not spill too much inside of the adapter case. Use your vise clamp to clamp the case tightly back into shape. Do not put too much pressure on the plastic AC adapter case, but just enough to hold it firmly together and create a tight bond between the plastic and the super glue.
Remember to allow the glue to dry several hours, or whatever is recommended on the packaging of your super glue. Remove the adapter from the clamp and make sure that the bond is secure and that the case will not crack open again. Test out the AC adapter and make sure that everything is functioning properly.
If the ac adapter was broken terribly and could not repair it, then we should buy a new replacement on as soon as possible. Here is the detailed information of the Toshiba PA3237U AC Adapter. I bought from http://www.feevoo.com:
