Question about ASUS Computers & Internet
Have tried 2 charges and neither will work. Have had laptop for about 3 years.
When you say it won't charge, does it charge at all?
1. It indicates that it is charging, but as soon as you unplug the charger the battery quickly or immediately indicates it is dead. If the laptop is off, the LED on the laptop shows it is charging but the battery is always dead,
2. It is as if you didn't have the charger plugged in. No light on the laptop at all when the charger is plugged in.
1. The battery has died and is no longer capable of taking a charge. An alternate explanation if you can't even get the laptop to turn on even though the laptop charge LED is on, is that the internal power supply that converts the incoming and battery voltage to all the voltages required has died.
2. The power connector inside the laptop is a common failure point. The solder joints break from various minor shocks over time. This is going to become more common with lead-free solder as it is more brittle. Less likely is that the charging circuit inside the laptop has failed.

Some of these suggestions are way out there. The rule of thumb in laptop support is to suspect the battery and AC adapter first. They are the MOST common failure point if there has been no outside damage. All of these other ideas will result in other symptoms.
My bet is on the battery or the AC adapter - the most obvious and least expensive to try before paying some over-rated tech to open it and ruin it forever.

The problem might be with the static charges on the motherboard, LCD screen, RAM or with the Hard Disk. Try the followings.
1. Remove Static Charges:
1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
2. Remove the Battery.
3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter and do NOT connect the battery now.
5. Turn on the Notebook power.
Still same, remove and reseat the RAM and Hard Disk. Check the below link for service manual.
Refer to page 52 of 134 (Memory Module)
NOTE: If you have more than one memory module, you should test them individually to determine if one or both of them are faulty. Insert each module separately, then turn on the notebook to determine if the inserted module is working. Once you have determined which memory module is faulty, you can replace the faulty module and reseat the working module.
Refer to Page 49 of 134 (Hard Disk)
If still the same, you need to contact HP for hardware repair.

You have a ground fault issue in the DC JACK.
There are escentially 4 circuits in the jack and one is not making contact.
1: Negative Charge circuit (outter ring)
2: Negative Run circuit (outter ring)
3 Positive (Inner Ring)
4: Signal (center pin)
I believe the negative charge circuit (outter ring) is not making contact internally. Typically what happens on that model DC Jack is the tension contact metal becomes fatigued, and does not touch the outter ring.
This could come from Heat causing early fatigue of the metal.
Or normal wear, the metal has simply worn out from regular insert/removal.

I had the same problem, I removed the bettery while it was still plugged in, tested it, then plugged it back and and now all is fine.

That usually indicates battery is beginning to go bad. Eventually it will not hold a charge and will need to be replaced.
