HP laptop won't start without a battery

\015 I just finished repairing my laptop's power jack which was broken, it's a Pavilion zd7020us 17'' widescreen. Got it used from a friend. The repair required a complete disassembly, followed HP's PDF guide, and successfully got everything reassembled. I tried to power it on with my 90W Asus power adapter, but no joy. It works fine with another 15'' HP notebook, but I think it doesn't need as much juice. The original power adapter and battery were missing when I got it. HP's specs call for a 135W adapter, this may be the problem. The LEDs come on for a moment, then show only the power and plugged in LEDs. No fans spin, screen image or HD spin-up. Two things here, will the laptop power up without a battery installed? And I'm guessing the primary problem is my 90W adapter is too weak? I want to be sure before I drop a lot of money getting an adapter and battery, this is an older laptop, used as a backup to my Asus. Read poor customer reviews of the OEM adapter on HP's site, they seem to go bad. Looking to get a decent 3rd party compatible supply and battery, suggestions? eBay?\015

Answers :

Just get a universal adapter for it but make sure in the package it says it is compatible with your lap top it is well worth it usually run about 85 bucks
