LCD monitor and AC/DC adapter

LCD monitor and AC/DC adapter Need a new power adapter for my CMV brand 17" LCD monitor.
Per the back of the LCD the DC input needs to be 19V - 2.6A. Have noted there are some universal adapters on Trademe that might suit. Most come with multi tips/plugs. Some tho are 100W and others 35W. What (excuse the pun) is the significance of wattage variations. Any other advice as to how successful I might be in my search?

35W should be enough for a 17" monitor. Doesn't the original adapter give you a rating? Just get one equal or higher.

Just as a guide !9v at 2.6a is about 50watts. Aim for at least that and you should be in the right ballpark

Nothe monitor does not give an amps spec.
But I now see the calculation (V x amps) that will provide the total required amps.
What is the effect if one uses too many amps? Will that "fry" the monitor?

NoProvided the voltage is correct the load cannot draw too many amps

Hi, @geek_mariner26, 3 months ago, I bought an AC/DC Adapter. It really very effective & I already recommended for my friends...
