G'day, The cord on my 65 watt brick broke at the exit to the HP laptop. I have the same 18.5 voltage brick from another computer but it is 120 W and twice the amperage. Can the HP computer take the higher current? I have an adapter plug to go between the to to match pin size, but realize it won't change the current. Am I safe to use???
You may use a 1200W brick if you wish. It won't change the computer's current draw. But aside from the voltage check also the polarity of the plug.
Thank you mate, greatly appreciated...didn't want to blow out the computer.
