I need to replace the end of dell inspiron 2650 power cord. There are 3 terminals. What goes to the third terminal? Answered

I understand on a pin connector that the braided wire is ground and the insulated wire goes to the pin, but I'm not sure if the 3rd connector on mine was jumpered or to which one wire. It broke to badly to be able to tell on the old one.

that would be the round pin on a 3 prong cord. it connects to the earth, so as to prevent shocking to you.

. Black goes to the smaller blade of the plug. White to the larger blade. Green to ground.
