I am having trouble finding A/C power adapter to replace the one I received with it when I bought.

As you read, I have the G750JX RB71 series. I am having hard time finding adapter for this.

The numbers for
Input :
100 -240 V AC, 50/60 Hz universal 2.34A

19.5 V DC, 9.23 A, 180 W

I have tried all the store brands with similiar numbers with the only exception that the 2.5A for the input
When I tried to use the adapter with 2.5A, my screen begins to flash while the battery still in.
So, I took the battery out and the screen doesn't flash at all.
However, it will not play games without the battery.
So is there a huge difference in the 2.34A and 2.5A for the laptop?
Called customer service to get a replacement but they don't know what if there is difference between 2.34A or 2.5A.
I am somewhat frustrated trying to get the correct adapter.
Please, help if you can. Thank you for your time. Have a good day.

Welcome to the forums!

Just wanted to confirm your notebook works fine with the original ASUS AC adapter and the problems are not related to something else.

Anyway, if you want to get another ASUS 180w AC adapter from a reseller and are located in the U.S., you can check the 'where to buy' at this page http://promos.asus.com/US/where_to_buy/ although it may take some hunting and you may also want to confirm they are selling you the ASUS AC adapter and not a third-party adapter if it matters.

Although the U.S. eStore site doesn't list any AC adapters for the G750 models yet, if you want to trust me, you can get the G75VW 180w AC adapter which will work for the G750JX: http://us.estore.asus.com/index.php?l=product_detail&p=5113

To be safe you may want to confirm with eStore that it will work for the G750JX or ask them to post the G750JX AC adapter if available.

Haven't checked into this much, but In my opinion the AC adapter input difference of 2.34A or 2.5A shouldn't matter since this is the current/amps from your wall socket which you would think or hope would be fairly standardized in the U.S.
The AC adapter output (that is supplied to your notebook) is what I would worry about more, but even if the specs are correct, it's possible there are other differences with the adapter design causing problems (or you might also have a defective adapter?).
Anyway, ASUS doesn't usually approve or check-out third party adapters, so you may want to get the correct adapter from ASUS if necessary.

You may want to get more opinons from others too since I know others have reported using other adapters.
