My next question is if there is a way to make the notebook run at full speed even though the AC is unknown.
What do you mean by full speed?
I'm guessing you're talkin about the videocard...
You may not be able to run it at full speed but you would be able to increase the speed by flashing the card. Unfortunately, you'd have to change 2d/throttle/3d because drivers like to mix and match settings from different fields if it feels certain settings are unstable.
It would just be easier to try to find a new power brick as you wouldn't even be able to charge the computer if you did this...
