You are at risk of frying your laptop by using a battery of a higher voltage.The voltage rating may not need to  match the original battery.If you read the specifications page for your laptop it should tell you what batteries can be used. There may well be some leeway but without reading the specifications you are running the risk of rendering your laptop useless.
