Hi
I need to find adaptors that works with two old compaq laptops I
bought. It's hard and expencive to find the original adaptors, but I
don't know enough about electronics to find another one that fits.
The contura is labelled MAX 16.5V (I've read on the internet that the
original adaptor is 16.5V, 2.6AMP)
The aero is labelled MAX 17.5V (On the internet I found out that the
original adaptor is 16.5V, 1.8AMP).

What adaptors should I be able to use? I've tested with the contura
att 16.0V (since it says MAX 16.5), that adaptor was labelled to give
MAX 2.8 AMP at that voltage (which is slightly higher than 2.6, but
since it's a MAX.. shouldn't it work?). But it didn't work at all. At
most the battery-indicator flashes for half a second.

Does anyone have any tips?

Regards,
Georgios

Are you sure you have the correct polarity?
