Does the laptop power on at all? Im assuming it will not charge. This could be a faulty charger or an issue with the charge port inside your laptop. See if you can borrow a charger from someone. If your problem still persists I would recommend buying a new charge port for it.
You do not have to be worried about the wattage. Wattage (in the case of chargers) is the capacity a charger can provide. So higer the wattage better it is. However, higher the wattage higher the price usually. Voltage has to match. But the most important thing to look for when you buy a universal adapter is the polarity. Take care to match the polarity. Polarity will be represented by a small line encircled by a circle with + AND - . If you look at it carefully you will understand that it is trying to tell you what polarity is the inner lead and the outer lead. You will see this marking on the charger and also on your laptop close to the DC in. (Usually the inside lead is positive and the outside lead is negative) However some manufacturers reverse this. (I have no idea why they do it though I think some kind of regulatory body should make a standard to avoid unsuspecting users from frying their devices). If your voltage and polarity is matching you are good to go with 65 watts or above. If this holds good, don't worry about any listings.
if the charge light doesnt turn on on the computer ..then you may have a broken wire from the charger .. that happens frequently right at where the wire enters the plug that plugs into the computer .. someone thats knowlegable about polarity and soldering can replace the tip .. or you could get a new charger ... if the charge light does lignt steady on the computer then thats not the problem .. often it is ..
Buy a "universal charger" wall wort. Most will chargs 1.5 VDC to 12 VDC in steps adjusted by a slide switch. The polarity of the tip is switchable from + to -, so be careful to switch the tip to the right polarity for your radio. Try to find one that has close to the same current output that the original charger had. Good Luck,
The charger needs to be 9.5 volts DC,2-1/2 amps. The polarity(plus or minus) is shown on the side of the unit. (It is negative on the outside and Positive on the inside) DO not reverse the polarity or you will damage the device.
You can buy universal changeable chargers at places such as Radio SHack, Best Buy, ABC Warehouse, and other stores.
