laptop power supplies

  ricvic 12:06 06 Dec 06

My elderly (spare) laptop, made by soyo, has an iffy power supply. I have identified, by trial and error, that there is a loose connection within the transformer box. The connector to the laptop is a standard fit. Are there any risks to using a third party power supply? I do not care about the battery, it is shot and cannot be repaired. I simply want to put the machine on a desk.

So long as you make sure that the rated output voltage of the third party power supply is the same as your original Soyo, there shouldn't be a problem.

There shouldn't be any problem using a third-party power supply provided:

- the voltage is correct and it is a *REGULATED* supply.

- the polarity is correct.

- it can deliver an adequate current.
