    1 - We might be able to help if we knew the model of laptop.

    2 - Understand that it's very possible that it's more than just the type of connector that differentiates those to power supplies. They could supply different voltages.

    3 - Have you tried to contact the vendor to see if they will exchange for the correct piece if you pay the $5 difference.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    well i live in jamaica so shipping it back is a big issue, the laptop is Hp Pavilion ZE5468cl. The output on my wall charger is 18.5V, 4.9A 90W

    and the output on the car adapter is 19.5V 4.62A 90W

    The car adapter you have would output a higher voltage and less amperage than is required.
    It may or may not work, but I wouldn't want to risk it with my hardware.
