so i was moving my desk around since i got a new ps3 (slim) and i noticed the ps3 was cramped in the corner and didn't have alot of air way. so i unplugged my laptop charger and the ps3 and they both fell behind my desk where i would later plug them back in. so i pick them both up and they both look the same except one had a white tag on it and looked a little older so i plugged it into my laptop and it worked., does it matter if i get them mixed up or does it need to be a certain one?

Im afraid to turn on my ps3 in fear that it might over run it with power and crash it.

If the PS3 has a built in power supply than it should be safe to use either cord.

Figure 8 power cords are pretty generic and shouldn't cause any issues swapping them about, just check the fuse has the correct AMPS.

Thanks, im not sure what a AMPS is[are], but i "think" i plugged them into the right ones and they aren't swapped and the ps3 works fine so thank you all for helping me.

Thanks,

Austin
