Hello,
the original power adapter/charger for my dell inspiron 1520 is broken, so i got a new one on ebay. the company said it was the correct one after i talked to them a few times. My computer puts up a warning message saying the charger is not sufficient wattage, even though the guy insists that it is. He said i may need to update the BIOS, which i did but the problem is not solved. The charger was charging my battery, but now (after about a week) the charger does not charge the battery at all. I know the battery is not old, so it has to be the charger... any suggestions?

its true you need same voltage ans same wattage

or your battery or motherboard will be doomed

Thanks
