Question about ASUS Computers & Internet
Recently my pc randomly turned off and it wouldnt start back up so quick, when it did i noticed that the battery charger gives a very bad contact with the laptop and i smelled something weird like burned chemicals so now i have to put the charger in all sorts of weird angles to let it charge,any solutions?
The laptop must be turn on when you connect the adapter. If you feel that something is smelling again, is sign that the power supply inside of the computer is faulty, go to the repair shop for fix it.
However you can RUN the software diagnostic comign with the computer of download from the website manufacture supplier
God bless you

The 700 Presarios were notorious for Trace shorts at the Jack and F1.. There is a work around but these were not a safe unit as they can arc and smolder burning a hole in the systemboard. We reapired a ton of them back in the day.

cud be your onboard voltage regulator for the battery charging. if you remove the battery and use the external power source does it smell also?
if the battery charges normal out of the unit, and the laptop works well with the AC power unit without the battery, then it's your voltage regulator for the batt charging

If you can determine that it is not the battery just going bad, then most likely it is a problem with the motherboard. I actually have this same problem, and have not been able to find a quick fix.
HP has a battery tester tool. If you are able to use this, then you are one step ahead of where my HP laptop is. I tried running this and it insisted that I did not have a battery installed, or that it was dead. If you have this same problem, then it looks like it might be time for a new motherboard.
In anycase, it might also be worth the time to try draining the battery completely and attempting to charge it back up. According to a few other sources, the laptop can sometimes get confused and think that a full battery is calibrated to be a low battery.

it sounds like the charger does not have sufficient wattage for your machine. i would try getting a certified acer power supply.
