Not charging even after replacing power jack
My laptop had stopped charging although it was originally still recognizing the charger. The battery eventually drained completely and the laptop has never turned on from that point.
I believe I may have caused this issue as I had a power adapter that had gone bad (frayed wire) and I believe that to have caused a short somewhere in the laptop. I do have several chargers as my family owns several zenbooks in the same line and their chargers are identical. After the faulty charger caused the issue, other power adapters did not work either.
I brought the laptop to a professional to replace the power jack thinking that may fix the issue and now the laptop no longer recognizes any power connection at all. The bios has been reset and power up attempts have been made with the battery disconnected/re-connected. I also tried removing ram though some memory is still embedded into the board. A hard reset was attempted as well by holding the power button down for 30+ seconds. No luck :x
Are there other areas here I should be checking to troubleshoot? I would prefer not to have to replace the mother board here as they are rather expensive to replace for this model.
In doing some digging online I’ve read some Asus laptops have a “power chip” that could fry and keep a laptop from recognizing a charger, does this model contain a similar chip that could be causing this issue?
Open to any suggestions that may bring my laptop back to life
Es esta una buena pregunta?
