Alternate power supply for an old laptop?
For those who it may concern, thanks if you can help.
Got an Toshiba 460CDT laptop that has everything inside (HDD, RAM, battery, etc), but there is one thing that concern me, the power supply. I didn't came with it, being super cheap (3$), so now I'm in need for a 15V 3A power supply which I don't have.
So for my question, would another power supply, like a wall wart, would work with this old laptop? Is there a difference using a wall wart or a laptop power supply to power a laptop? Would any power supply, being 15V 3A or 10.8V recharge the 10.8V 3600mAh battery even if its a few units off? And say if the battery was dead when I do find a power supply, would this old laptop still use the power supply to power up the computer without the battery?
