Hello, My power cable to ny laptop died. I have an old one to a different computer, same volts, much lower amps. My question is can the old one be used, to charge the laptop overnight. I will not run the laptop on the incorret power cable, only charge the unit over nigh.

If it has the exact same specs with the voltage, and the the input/output set up...
And the power jack is 100% identical, then it may work... It is a risky thing to do. And I would NOT recommend it, but, on paper, it will work.
