Depending on the system and the supplied adaptor type, substituting another can result in damage.
Some adaptors (nearly all 'universal' or adjustable types) are very primative and have little or no regulation meaning that the output set and the output you actually get are highly load dependent and the actual output voltage can be 50% higher than set.
Most laptops use a somewhat better adaptor (more stable output) and have internal final regulation to service the unit's needs and charge the battery pack at the same time.
Using the wrong adaptor can seriously damage the unit's internal regulator and you may have already done that even though the stated voltage is only 3V or some 25% higher.
If the laptop no longer boots, you may have some expensive repairs ahead.
