Greetings, My original AC adapter/charger for this machine is dying, so I purchased a generic inexpensive replacement that lists the exact same tech specs as the original Dell Vostro 1400 one. But a computer technician later warned me that non-original replacements aren't of the same quality and could potentially kill the motherboard if something goes wrong electrically. Should I heed this advice and invest in an original part? Thanks a lot!
Thanks. Essentially what the computer tech implied is that the contents of the converter box of generic adapters aren't identical to or as sophisticated as the original and don't properly buffer the computer against power surges I think.
