Do you have the original power adapter/charger? The specs are on the label. Or you can look in the manual on page 2-19 from the 1st link you posted. It appears there are 2 options:

Option 1 - 150W, 19.5V
Input: 100~240V 50~60Hz
Output: 19.5V 7.7A

Option 2 - 120W, 19.5V
Input: 100~240V 50~60Hz
Output: 19.5V 6.15A

In addition to the above, the plug must be the right size plus the positive & negative must be configured correctly. Center pin is (+), outer ring in ( - ).

Thank you! I checked all of the of the specs and they seem to match up. Do you or anyone mind double checking to see if this one will work for the laptop? Thanks in advance, sorry if its a hassle. This is the one I want to buy. I don't wanna spend money on something that wouldn't work. https://www.amazon.com/Adapter-Char...

Hopefully someone else will respond. I'm not sure if the 0.5 voltage difference would be an issue or not. I'm inclined to say no but I suggest you wait to see what others say.

"I'm just being cautious"
I don't know if it makes a difference either.

If you are not a 100% sure you need a charger, I would be phoning around to people I know that have a laptop & if you find a match, take your laptop around & test.

Why not buy one specifically made for that model? E.g. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod...

Whichever... don’t necessarily buythe cheapest... Check around the websites for prices - and reviews. Amazon is good place to start, likely Egghead too.

That Amazon Charger is a lot of money.
Here in the UK Chargers can be found for around £6 up.
Best to shop around.
Some come without a Mains Lead (when detachable) which saves, but you need to ensure the original Lead will fit the new Charger..

If the original Charger's output is 7.7 amp I would stick with that, or higher.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.
