W520/530 Power supply to Y540

2020-01-29, 23:07 PM

I've a 170W power supply from a W520/530 system and I'm looking to see if I can find an adapter to go from that to a Y540.  The Y540 has the slim square plug, the power supply is the round but is notched. (Figure 1).  I already have an adapter that is un-notched (not figure 1). 

 

Does an appropriate adapter exist?  If not, any other suggestions.  I could get a usable 170W power supply with the slim plug, but I'd rather use the power supply that I already have in my possession.

 

It'll be a backup supply for use at the desk, so it won't be traveling.

 

Thanks.

Follow-up to my own post.  I've searched more and more and such a converter doesn't seem to exist.  The W520 power supply looks like it is assembled with tamper-resistant screws, so I'll have to check my tool collection to see if I have the appropriate bit.  I might be able to put one of these in.
