Question about ASUS Computers & Internet
I smelled a burning smell recently while using my laptop. When I unplugged the ac adapter, the plug that plugs directly into the back of the computer was extremely hot. I unplugged it and used my battery for a bit. When I plugged it back in, the computer would not recognize that the AC adapter was plugging in and it still ran off the battery. I bought a replacement AC adapter thinking that was the problem. The battery was almost dead but not completely I think. Anyway, when I plug in the new AC adapter, nothing happens and now the computer won't even run off the battery. The burning smell returns when I've plugged in the new AC adapter.
The warranty is up but I still need to use the computer and it's still good other than that.
What else can I do?
Unless you have the ability to to replace the plug connector part yourself, you will have to take it in to a shop who can do that kind of fine soldering for you. If nothing else is damaged, it should be ok with replacing just that burnt out part.
