It is most likely that your laptop dc jack is loose or dead. Just replace it or repair it. If you are good at computer, you could do it by yourself as the following instructions:

Seems the laptop connector has been disturbed, pull, tugged on. A connection most likely is loose in the machine(motherboard) or could be a defect in manufacturing. If new return it or ask the manufacturer for a repair/replace. They will most likely suspect customer damage. BE PERSISTENT, don't take no as an answer. Good Luck

SOURCE: AC Power supply overheating for ASUS eee PC

If the pc is fully charged, dont leave it plugged in. Mine gets hot but I've experienced ones that were hot to-the-touch...I'd say be careful leaving it on charge when you are not at home.

Asus a3a laptop

Probably the AC Adapter is no good....Go to e-bay and purchase a new AC Adapter for that model # notebook. But if it shows charging then try first by taking out the battery and see if the AC adapter will run the computer without the battery in it (if so, then the adapter is good, the battery is actually bad, so replace the battery instead).

Good Luck.

Hi,, this is a very simple problem but the fix for it is or can be very hard. depending on your skill set you can try to attempt the repairs as I will describe below, but you should really consider getting it professionally repaired.

The problem is the charge port. Quite often the solder holding the contacts is broken and causing it to short out and sometimes the pins in the port are broken as well.. This fix is as simple as re soldering the port or replacing it..

1.) Follow the instructions on this likn to disassemble the Laptop and get to the charge port.

2.) re solder or replace the port.

Please note based on the information given i have made my suggestions, This can be wrong as I'm not there in person to verify it therefor i can make no guarantee that is the problem. I strongly suggest you have this problem professionally looked at.

Asus ASUS A53U-ES21 wont power on

In order for the AC adapter to work the battery must be in good condition, why? Because the system runs of battery the AC adapter just keeps the battery charged up while in use, if the battery is open or defective the computer will not run on just the AC adapter.

My ASUS P4T533-C won't turn on

This is really a common problem with computers these days. It may be caused by a number of reasons like a faulty charging system, faulty battery or anything burned out on the computer's system board. But in this scenario, i would suggest the following
1. Remove the battery and connect the laptop with the AC adapter only and see if it will respond.
2. Remove the AC and re-connect the battery and try to turn it on
3. If the above two do not work, then consider changing the AC adapter for your laptop. You can try to use a different AC adapter that has the same rating as your laptop's. The problem might be with the Charger.
4. But if all this does'nt work, consider getting a Computer Technician who can open up your computer and check the circuit board, there might be a problem with one of the chips

Here are some steps you could take to try and solve the problem
  • Make sure all parts of the adapter are plugged tightly together.
  • Try plugging the adapter into a different wall socket.
  • Try the adapter with another computer to make sure that your laptop is not the actual problem.
If the adapter continues to fail after all previous steps are taken you may just need to buy a new adapter. Not to worry though as brand new adapters can be found for next to nothing on websites like or

All you need is a power plug adapter. At Radio Shack you can find one for US plugs to any other plug in another country. They will be able to order a reverse adapter, one to adapt Aussie plugs to US plugs. I'd start there and they'll find you one no doubt about it.
