it sounds like the hp ac adapter has gone bad. I would stick with the universal charger.

If your laptop is under 1yr old contact hp and they should send you a new adapter for free

it you bought it from hp, or one of their official distributors, no it doesn't matter. when you contact them they should be able to track the purchase date.

If you bought it from ebay or just a random person selling laptops, then you're probably not going to get anything from hp

From my own experiences with HP laptops, 6 months is about how long mine lasted before needing replaced. If the universal is working for you I'd use it but you may well want to send it back for a replacement.
