Y50-70 power adapter not supported

Hi, I have a Lenovo y50-70, and it's power adapter died (there are no output volts in the connector to the laptop).

 

I bought a replacement online, which turns out to be a non-original power adapter, but the specs match (correct connector with signal pin, and correct volts and amp rating).

But this adapter does not work in the y50-70. I get a popup on the screen saying it isn't  supported. Funnily enough the new adapter works fine in my lenovo t440p, and the t440p's adapter works in the y50-70.

Is the y50-70 really picky? And are there any tricks to get an adapter to work with it?

Thanks.

Hello xdzgor

 

Thank you for using the Lenovo forum

 

The laptop will recognize if its not original and decline it to protect it from surge.

Thanks - kind of what I expected. But the T440p does not have the same check for an original Lenovo charger?

Did this problem ever get resolved, I'm having the same issue, and so does many others as far as I can tell?
