Help with replacing our laptop charger

Hello! We have a bit of a problem - we are travelling long term in Central America and our laptop charger has broken. We have been looking around for a couple of weeks for somewhere that will sell the right kind of charger for this small Samsung laptop (the port is too small for all the generic chargers we have seen) or will repair the one we have (none of the smaller computer shops will do this). We have now come to San Jose with the hope of finding somewhere.

Please could you recommend us a large computer spares shop in the city that might have the right thing or do the repair? Your help is much appreciated, many thanks!

I have always had good luck in the San Pedro area - it's near the main University. But you can just ask around or ask at your lodging. Go to an internet cafe and ask them for a recommendation. Ask a taxi driver.
