    Couriant answered your post and says you should have no problem with that unit. I would go ahead and get it ordered if you like and I will also post back when I hear from the seller.

    60 days money back, free return shipping from this ebay seller :)

    Tomcycle14,

    Here is the reply from ebay seller.

    (If the volts, amps and plug size are the same as your original one, then it will work for you.

    Regards,
    Ed )

    So, if it were me, I would go ahead and purchase it knowing I can send it back if it does not work.

    I just wanted people to know, I bought it. It's going to arrive around October 5th or 6th. So, get ready to see what happens and provide more help when I find out more information. Thanks again everyone that helped.

    What gets me is the bolded... sounds like they don't know what they are selling... hopefully it is the right one.

    Well.....got the charger today. It's totally different from both pictures in the ad. It doesn't fit my Compaq Presario CQ 50. It's just a charger with different plug-ins at the end for different ports. Yet none fit, the item even came with a paper saying all the laptops it fit. Mine wasn't on the list. But it's all over the ad. So, I guess I have to return it now, and get a new one........ yay.......... : |

    Nevermind, I just got home from school and saw a charger. I assumed my dad opened it and tested it for me. But it was just my dad trying a different charger someone else had. Anyway, should get here tomorrow or Thursday.

    Got the charger today. The charger works and the laptop has no problems (that I have found). So, thanks for everything. Let's hope there's no hidden problems. :D
