View Full Version : ASUS G53SW aC adapter power supply issue

05-10-2014, 04:05 AM

I'm new to the forums, but have owned this G53SW for a few year. I love this thing even though it has given my many problems, including two RMA's, the latest a mobo replacement. My problem now is that when I charge my laptop the power supply box on the charger becomes very, very hot and the light on the psu goes out (it is normally green if you didn't know). The laptop stops charging, obviously, and I suspect it would be a problem with the charger itself? Or if there is some other fix you guys may know I would love to try them out. Through all the frustration this laptop has put me through I still love it and would really love to get it working properly finally. Thanks in advance for help you guys can give.

Charger is cutting out as a thermal protection most likely, are you using the correct size charger?
