And I bought a cable with a 90 adaptor from amazon but im not really sure if it can hande 7.7A
It looks a bit tiny and on the site i couldn't find any tech informations neither on the cable package. What do you guys think?

You could try plugging it in for a bit and see if it starts to heat up. If it gets hot then you know there is too much resistance.

Ok, I've tried and it doesn't work like it should, when i stress the notebook a bit, the ac power notification just keeps popping out. :(

That's definitely not good!

The problem with the pin is not just that you need to relieve stress on the pin using a 90 degree adapter, but you also need to get a higher rated power supply, the weak ones that ASUS gives out will not cut it.

If the pin is already damaged then it won't help to swap now.
