Re: AC charger not recognized on Inspiron 15 5567

This morning I was chatting with my boss about the issue and he mentioned there might be a communications handshaking between the charger and the computer, and I remembered the new female DC pin has what I understand is a choke (a little cube around which the 5 cables go a few times), which was NOT present in the original DC pin. Could this be an issue? Anyway I'm going to try and take it away later today (unless somebody advices me strongly against it before).

PD: I tested the 45W charger on my boss' 65W Dell, and it immediatly told us that the charger was indeed a 45W one, and that it would not be enough to charge the battery, so I can totally confirm my friend's charger is working correctly (suspected handshaking included).
