Windows 7: Laptop charger

Laptop charger

I have a laptop in which the charger 'pin' (to plug into laptop) seems bad. It's a bit loose when I wiggle it and when in the laptop, the cord has to be positioned just right for it to charge (it seems to lean the pin to where it can charge). I'm not sure if it's the charger or the port.

The charger (call it #1) is 19V, 2.37a, 45w. I have another charger (#2) (same brand laptop, different, lesser model). The voltage specs are 19v, 1.75a, 33w.

Can I safely use charger #2 to verify weather the problem is the charger or the port for charger #1's laptop?


Thanks!

If the connector from charger #2 fits correctly into the laptop in question, then yes, you can use it for troubleshooting the problem.

Can I use 20v charger for a 19v laptop?
Hey, I have a 20v 8.xA output charger from a heavy working station laptop that I'd like to use for a small laptop originally using a 19v 2.1A charger. From what I read, it should be OK. But I'm quite bad at electricity and dont wanna ruin my gear :) So please tell me! Thanks.
