I bought a cheap off brand generic dell charger off amazon, and everything was gonna work fine until i got a message telling me the charger didn't have adequate wattage. The laptop is informing me it is plugged in but wont charge using the one i bought. Is there any way I can allow the battery to charge even with the one i bought.
Actually I find it a little odd Dell would force you to buy a certain wattage charger. Typically with a lower wattage charger (within reason), the battery simply charges at a slower rate. Wonder if Dell's charger is of a proprietary (must buy from us!) design.
