View Full Version : G73jh Dead?

11-22-2011, 05:55 AM
I have a G73jh laptop and it refuses to turn on and every time I plug the charger in the light on the charger turns off.

It happened when I left it on all night, like I did many nights without problem, and when I woke up there was a bad smell in the air like burning plastic. I tried getting a new charger but it did the same thing with the new charger.

My problem is that I bought the laptop at best buy in the United States and I am now in Canada for school. When I went to the best buy here in Canada I was informed that they would not honor my warranty from the states and my one year warranty from best buy expires in a week, so i can't just send it back to my family and get it fixed where I bought it.

My questions are what happened to my computer and how can I go about getting it fixed. Also as a college student I don't have much cash to get it fixed at an independent shop here if it's a major problem. This is my school computer so i need it fixed as quickly as possible.

Take the battery out, carefully, and try it with only the adapter.

Muahahah! Yeah, try that, LOLLL!

I understand that Asus helps here want to keep their job, that's why they will never tell you the truth.

This laptop dosen't work out of the box and will never will.

Search the net, only a little % of owner are happy, all other are totaly deseperate whit this lame cpu.

By the way, I am an owner of this lame, so I kow what I talking about after 2 RMA and 1 year trying to fix that ****.
And I LOVE to ***** on Asus now, because they own me 2k.

Good luck.
