Hello Everyone!
I have received a new Toshiba Computer but the AC adapter did not get shipped when they sent it! Specs show it requires 19Volts 3.42 amps, I have a Dell AC adapter which is 19.5V 4.62A from am old computer, will this safely work on the Toshiba or will it damage it?

You must only use an AC adapter with the correct voltage and amp output to avoid damaging the system, the additional power will also create higher temperatures and so the damage to your computer will be twofold.
