so i have just revived my msi gs65 and because it came from america it has the american adaptor, the power brick for the laptop says its rated for 100 to 240v so that should be fine, however my adaptor for the plug is 13 amps and the brick says 2.5amps and the wire going into the brick says 7 amps, i tried putting a 5 amp fuse in the plug but it would not charge the laptop, so i went back to the 13 amp fuse, is this alright to use or should i buy a whole new charging brick?

The listed amperages are maximums. So the charger will draw 2.5A max. Given that the cord is rated to carry up to 7 A and the adapter up to 13A, you're fine.

What is the input frequency range listed on the charger? e.g. 50-60 Hz.
