    I have an hp pavillion dv 6000 that I lost the power adapter to. My friend has an adapter for an hp pavillion dv9000 that he does not need anymore and he wants to sell it to me. I want to know if it will work with my computer. The adapter puts out 19volts 4.74 amps 90 wants max. The replacement adapters for my model (dv6000) list the power output as 18.5 volts 3.5 amps 65 watts.

    Will an adapter that was higher voltage amps and wattage work for my laptop that requires less??? This is assuming that the connector is the same which I'm not sure of.
