    Thumbs up [RESOLVED ]Power supply too big for laptop???

    Bought a Dell Latitude E4300 today. It arrived with a 130Watt Dell power supply. Kahlon.com says that this computer takes a 90 Watt. Will the 130 watt hurt the computer? Thanks.
    Thanks

    Nope. The laptop will only use what it needs.

    The laptop doesn't need to be smart. The laptop only consumes 90watts, the power supply can supply up to 130watts. It's like the power supply in a desktop computer, the desktop won't consume more energy because you install a 750watts power supply instead of a 500watts power supply.
