Why does my laptop has 4 DC input wires?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I have an old Compaq laptop. The DC wire has 4 wires in it, two bold
(white,red) and two thin (black, yellow). Bold ones are 18V, thin
ones are 2.7V.
for what are the thin ones used? Thank you!
