if the voltage is with 0.5v higher is that a problem?
Can't say definitively without more information. The voltage tolerance of the laptop, the nominal output voltage (actual) of both adapters. The laptop information might be difficult to obtain because manufacturers expect you to use the provided adapter.

EDIT: FWIW, I measured an unloaded voltage of 19.4V from an HP adapter that states it's 18.5V @ 3.5A.
