Just to let you know that in the French Forum dealing about Asus's laptops : http://www.forum-des-portables-asus....d=39934#p39934
We're actually about 12 people having the same problem with this power adapter on Asus G53JW.
Of course Asus France Helpdesk refuse to fix it under warranty.
In France We're going to make together a letter to Asus France Managers to ask them to accept the fix under warranty.
And plan to make a complaint in French Court if Asus France still refuse.
Kind regards from Paris
