    laptop not working right

    ok guys hoping someone can help me out here, i bought a advent 7087 laptop which has a problem with the battery, for one the battery wont charge, nor hold a charge of course lol, now ive already ruled out the charger itself as this charges my other laptop but heres the oddest thing... when it gets past the loading screen the mouse and keyboard stop responding! they go all stuttery then stop working...external ones work fine, and if i keep the ac input pluged in and remove the battery the mouse and keyboard on the laptop come back to life.....any ideas on this one?? thanks!!

    Generally, I would think as long as the charger is not less amps than the battery you would be Ok. If it was less amps, then the laptop would be asking more from the charger than it can handle.

    Say a charger is rated to output say 19.74V and 4.74A. The 4.74A is the maximum that its going to output but it is capable of putting out less. Kind of like PSU's ... they only output whats demanded of them.
