That the power cables that fit the socket on the Computer tower and monitor are interchangeable, then yes they are. If the cord will fit the power socket, then they are interchangeable or common generic fittings.
My brother accidentally left most of his PC cables in his dorm room, including the power cables to his tower and his screen. My question concerns whether we can cannibalize some other computers for their power cords.
The monitor and the tower PSU both use cables that I believe are the 125V 10A (1250W) type, or are at least shaped the same. I'm 90% sure that we should be able to use any of these cables since my monitor, tower, and Playstation 3 all use these cables as well and seem to be interchangeable. I just don't want to tell him "let's do this" and hear a lovely popping noise when we hit the power.
Just in case, the monitor's power-related specs are
Should the 125V 10A cables work universally?
