Specs: Windows XP
I am disturbed and confused I got an LCD monitor that used an adaptor and has a power DC range of 12 v - 2amp and I have an adaptor of 12v - 4amp I used it on it and it powered it but I am confused if it will not burn it up on a long use. kindly let me know whether to continue using it or find the exact amp?.

It will be fine as long as the voltage is the same an the Amps are more than is required then there is no problem.

Amps relates the maximum current the power supply can supply. The monitor will only draw as much current as it requires, in this case 2 Amps, up to a maximum of 4 Amps.

It will be fine. The monitor will only pull the current it needs.
