As a rule of the thumb, Compaq Presario CQ40 Adapter must be able to adequately supply of power output that is either equal or superior to the laptop's requirements. Mismatches in power outputs as a result of the adapter suffering different kinds of damage can prove fatal to your computer in the sense that your charging system can be damaged or at worst the motherboard of your laptop. Damage to the laptop's motherboard means you will have to replace it (which can be quite expensive, with prices of motherboard specifications coming close to the original price of the laptop model) or buy yourself a new laptop. To avert this it is good to choose a replacement adapter that meets your laptop's power needs. For your Compaq CQ40 laptop model, it is thus wise to choose a certified Compaq Presario CQ40 Adapter for replacing a faulty adapter. Why is this so? This is not only because manufacturers use different plugs for their laptop power adapters, but also different laptop brands comes with different wattage requirements. Thus this eliminates your possibility of using a power adapter from a different laptop brand to charge your Compaq battery. Risking stating what I had already mentioned, supplying your laptop with less than or more than its wattage requirements risks damaging its charging system and in some cases its motherboard. Given the conniving side manufacturers of fake laptop replacement parts, you might be tempted to go for a universal adapter. While a universal power adapter may provide you with a solution, some models advertised can seriously damage your laptop by providing the wrong power output.

Secondly, determine your laptop's wattage requirements. You can either check this in the user manual or find it in the same sticker at which your laptop's model number is located. With these two requirements all you have to do is match the various power adapters being offered for sale. Whether from Compaq systems or from a different manufacturer, genuine Compaq Presario CQ40 chargers will come with many variations such as free power cords and at times different port attachments.
