I have a 15" macbook pro (purchased late 2011) and recently lost my charger for it. I have a 13" charger from my boyfriends macbook, and have been using that instead, it still charges the computer fine just slower and if my computer is completely dead it takes a few moments for it to charge enough to boot up (never had this problem with old charger). Every couple of weeks my computer will die completely, this happens maybe once or twice a month and sometimes not at all. It takes about 5 minutes plugged in before it turns on then takes a very long time to actually boot up. Once it is booted up, my clock is reset to January, 1, 2000. After looking this up I'm finding issues on PRAM batteries going, but now I'm wondering if it has to do with my charger since it's only happened since I switched, any ideas?
