String comment = "My monitor's PSU (which is an external powerbrick) died and I thought of replacing it with either a computer PSU or one of those regulable laptop chargers in which you can select the voltage so it works for different laptops.
I don't know much about this stuff but from my understanding as long as I input the same volts and amps to the monitor it should work fine.
This is what's on the power brick:
Input: 100-240v 50/60Hz 1.0 A max
Output: 19v 1.7A
How would I make a computer PSU output 19v when the highest a computer PSU rail goes is 12v?
If I buy a laptop charger that already outputs 19v BUT gives 3.5amps, will this fry the monitor due to giving it too many amps?
I want to put a fuse in the cable when I wire the thing for safety, can you use whatever fuse in whatever place? For instance, a car fuse is interchangeable with a regular filament fuse?
Is there a cheaper solution to this that isn't change the capacitors in the broken powerbrick and hope it works? (I don't want to try this route because it's not guaranteed it's the caps and there are no stores that sell these things in my area because people don't repair nowadays, just replace, don't want to wait china shipping time and cheapest capacitor kit in amazon is about the same price as a computer PSU or laptop powerbrick).
My current knowledge:
Too many volts will break it
Too few volts might break it
Know what resistance is
No idea about amps
Multimeter (don't know how to use but will figure it out)
Regulable soldering iron
Is this doable for someone without experience?";
