View Full Version : G53SW switches from AC mode/Battery mode --Power adapter plug gets HOT

05-23-2012, 10:04 PM
This is my first post as I am new to this forum, I've had the laptop for around 11 months now with no issues.

As of a week ago my laptop will switch from battery mode to AC mode over and over. I can wiggle the adapter but it doesn't help. When I am gaming and it does this, the plug gets extremely hot. I've read some threads on this on here and notebookreview about similar issues but no one seems to have a fix.

I checked the plug (piece that plugs in laptop) with a multimeter and it reads 19.3-19.5 volts.

My ADP ends in about a month and I was looking for advice to see what steps I should take next.

Thanks in advance.
