Adapter replacement?

By sadbluescreener

  1. Hello all. I have a MSI GX630 notebook and though it has had many problems I now face a bigger one. My adapter was stolen and so I can't use it at all. The original adapter that was sent out with my notebook was a LITEON PA-1121-04. That is 19V and 6.3A like this one:

    http://www.pchub.com/uph/laptop/46-30705-1866/Toshiba-Common-Item-Toshiba--AC-Power-Adapter.html

    My question is where can I find a well known and trusted website to order such an adapter from? Or is the website in the link above, pchub.com, a trusted enough place to order from? I am currently in Jamaica.

    I am not sure this is where this should be but it's under mobile computing so I hope I'm right in posting here.

    That adapter should work fine... As far as PCHUB being good, or trustworthy, who knows. Have you been "burned" buying online before?

    I know of persons who have. I buy what I need from Newegg or other well known websites, I only happened upon pchub by chance while searching. thanks for the reply.

    They have them all over ebay for $20-$25 incl shipping.

    I buy from ebay as long as the seller has a good rating.. If you pay with paypal you are automatically protected from any kind of fraud as you will be when using a regular credit card (no debit). I have never been burned and I have had to use the paypal buyer protection only once (and did get a refund). Or you can get a universal... geeks.com has several here starting at $18 http://www.geeks.com/products_sc.asp?cat=707

    thank you very gguerra!

    Newegg ships to my family in America and from there I can collect it when I'm there or have them send it to me.

    I have found some replacements but there are usually some things off about these replacements, ether the connector size is wrong or the power rating is incorrect. The adapter has a power rating of 19V 6.3A and the closest replacement I've found has that of 19V 6.5A. I'd like to know if this 0.2A difference is too dangerous for my machine, or if i should continue searching for one with 6.3A specifically?

    0.2A will not make a difference. If newegg ships to your family in America so will any other American company. I did a quick look on newegg and their prices were a bit higher than you need to pay. Have you looked elsewhere?
