I have an Acer aspire 5000. When I turn it on, the ambwer power LED blinks 6 or 7 times, and no booting happens. From my googling, it seems to be a power issue.
I tried swapping out for a different power supply from another acer. The pos/neg charge is the same, the output voltage is 19V, but the amperage is different. The original is 3.42 amps, while the new one is 3.95 amps.
Can I use this new one with my laptop, or will I need to find one that matches better?
Edit: Ah! I got this mixed up. The old one is 3.95, while the new one is 3.42. So it sounds like from the answers so far, I shouldn't be using this new one.
