I have one of those universal plugs that come with the detachable tips and its a 120 watt and 110-220 volt and my computer only takes a 70 watt plug would that do anthing like blow the computer out or cause an electric shock or something?

I would'nt know anything about the wattage and voltage so I don't wanna risk it

any help?

Thanks~

It should say on the bottom of the laptop what voltage and amperage it is... If you can't find it you might want to take it someplace so they can tell you...
