Toshiba power adapter

My power adapter for my Toshiba Sat Pro L300 is buggered but have one from an old Toshiba and wondered if anyone knew if its ok to use. The buggered one is a 19v 3.95a and the old one I would like to use is a 19v 2.40a. I know the volts should be the same but not sure how the amps affect it. Thanks

Volts should be within 5%, but I've gone past 10% with some devices. Amps should be equal or higher. 2.4A won't be enough.

Agree, not enough Amps, it will overheat or shut itself down. Or if it does work, it'll pull the terminal voltage down below 19V

Suggest you go to http://tinyurl.com/4vbj8s they sell generic power adapters which will be lots cheaper than a genuine Toshiba one.
