    Hey, my old charger to my laptop just stopped workin, so i had to buy u new one. Here is the thing, old one was 120W but the new one is only 90W, and i am having problem with charging. Its only charging for a while and then it stops and i have to unplug it from laptop and plug it in again. Can anyone tell me why is it doing this weird stuff ? Thankss

    It may be getting hot and shutting off, especially since it is a lower wattage than the original. Is it a universal? Did you make sure it has the same voltage as the original? Some generic replacements are poor quality.
