    Note that you don't need an OEM one. You can use any of several compatible power bricks such as this one:

    Might make it easier to find one where you live if you broaden your search.

    Hi, I'm in the U.S., and not sure how well this number will work, but our website lists this phone number for the UK:
    United Kingdom: 0044-8448008340, 09:00-17:00 Mon-Fri
    http://support.asus.com/Hotlines.aspx?SLanguage=en

    They may not know which stores will have spare AC adapters in stock, but you may want to try to ask for the numbers of a few stores.
    The G73 also uses a larger adapter than most of our other notebooks though, so may be a little tougher to find, but should still be possible for stores to order, so hopefully somebody has a spare in stock.
    Underneath your AC adapter and notebook (under the battery?) you should see the rating label of 19V, 6.32A if you are using the 120w AC adapter and the same 19V, but higher Amp rating (around 7.9A?) if you have the 150w AC adapter (might be more difficult to find?) and want to get the same one.
    Good luck!

    If cost is an issue, try ebay, just make sure you get one with sufficient wattage or else it wont charge properly and can damage computer. I bought mine of their and all is well.

    Correct. You should get at least a 150W supply, better yet, 180W if you can find it. A little extra headroom in terms of rated capacity will help the lifespan of the replacement power supply, not to mention that it will run cooler as well.
    I am disturbed because I cannot break my system...found out there were others trying to cope! We have a support group on here, if your system will not break, please join!
