Hi, when testing my PSU output for my laptop, the reading on my voltmeter was 15v, but on the power brick it shows that it is supposed to output 19.5v, should I be replacing the PSU or does this not have significant impact? BTW, I am testing with ACV at 150 level, not sure to use ACV or DCV.

Hi :) 

As said use DC usually the 0-20 VOLT RANGE on most multimeters...

All the best Brett :)
