    I would assume so, nothing specific, but the online information states that it does cover HP and Compaq (owned by hp since about '02). However you should try aiming for a 120w adapter.

    Most full size laptops (15"+) and older laptops, like what you have, require a power supply better than 90w. A lower wattage power supply, than what came standard, may over heat or just not provide enough power to charge the laptop in a reasonable amount time. 90w and lower are usually seen on smaller laptops (13" and under) or on netbooks.

    I would imagine that the bigger power supply would last longer and may even heat up less. I've used an under powered charger before. In my case, the charger would overheat and shut down until it cooled down and then start again. The laptop never got a full charge until it sat over night.

    Lol. Took a year but this got a reply, ty Knox.
    Yeah I went ahead and bought it and it works great.
    It came with multiple adapters for different devices.
    It also has a usb port, for which is how my wife and i charge our smart phones. It has a green eco feature that kicks it on and off when charged or needs charged.

    Thanks again...
    Sincerely, Mongoose333
