View Full Version : G74 Not Charging, Won't run on AC-only

Our friend's G74 suddenly stopped charging Friday.

1) Windows says it's "Charging", however the number never goes up.
2) When he takes out the battery, the laptop will not run only using the AC adapter.
3) We have tried switching the adapter and battery from the same model laptop, no difference.

He will be contacting ASUS tomorrow, but is there anything else we can do?
Any ideas on what's wrong?

you already try to verify, change battery and adapter, but still no charge, how is your friend battery and adapter using in other same model laptop, is it able to charge?

They work in the other same model laptop just fine.

If I had to bet I would say something is bad on the internal power connector (either the solder, or the pin is about to brake; does it feel hot after some use?).

A less likely but still possible scenario would be bad caps on the mother.

If its not that I'm clueless. Would love to know after you got this figured out.

if you get this figured out I would like to know what the problem was as I am having the same problem with a G 50
