Hi. Few days ago my adapter stopped working. So I need to buy another while the other is on the technical support. Somebody knows where I can to buy it? Official or universal adapter?

THe model is G74SX. In Asus shop (online) there is an adapter with 150W output, but in the specifications isn't included G74SX. Only

G53 Series :
G53Jw / G53SW
G71 Series :
G71V / G71G / G71Gx
G72 Series :
G72Gx
G73 Series :
G73Jw 3D / G73Jh / G73Jx / G73Jw / G73SW / G73SW 3D

Somebody knows if G73's adapter is compatible with G74?

Excuse me, my english isn't brilliant.

Thanks

Isn't it covered by warranty?

Yes, the warranty cover, but I have to work a lot, and my battery is empty. So I need and adapter because the first will be on technical support 4 5 or 7 days

As long as you get an adapter with the same amperage rating and a compatible connector, it should work just fine.

So, G74SX has the next output:
150W
19.5 V
7.7 A

connector... i think that is diameter 2,5(in) 5,5(out). Somebody can check it the diameters?

Suppose there is an adapter with:
150W
19 V
7.9 A

This new adapter works?

I know this 5.5 x 2.5mm right angle adapter (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004L74PGI)works with the G74, so that seems to confirm the jack size you mention.

I believe the adapter you described would work just fine.

This one is supposed to work - http://www.amazon.com/G53jw-3de-G53jw-xa1-G53jw-xn1-G73jh-bst7-G73jhrf-bst7/dp/B004NVZ5E8/ref=pd_cp_e_2

thanks a lot BrodyBoy and JRd1st... it's painful to have a beast like G74sx stopped because in Spain, it's impossible to buy this adapter (original). Tomorrow I buy and universal adapter.
