I would not bother. Get a new one - HP ones are under 3500! Do not risk your VAIO.

Buy a compatble charger, 5.8K is too much. Be sure to match the Voltage and type of plug, amp rating should be same or higher.

You have two options - buy a cheap universal type charger (selectable voltage and pin types for all brands of laptops). Build quality isn't so good but they work ok. Should cost around 500 Rs.

Or buy the original charger from a place other than sony world, should be available for around 2K.

Aftermarket adapters for laptops cost 7-800 Rs. Using those for last 4 - 5 years for 2 thinkpads.

One such link : eBay India: Laptop Adaptor for SONY VAIO 16v 4A OEM COMPATIBLE (item 370271377869 end time 14-Oct-2009 18:00:28 IST)
