My NEO laptop requires 19V 3.42A but I accidentally plugged in an adapter with 24V 4.5A. :thumbsup:
When I turned on the laptop, it worked but after a few seconds, it went down (turned off). :flowers:
Does this mean something is wrong in my laptop already? Is it just the battery or something inside the laptop? (motherboard perhaps?) What do I need to do? :trumpet:

A big THANKS to those who will answer. :inlove:

By the way, I am new here...

It's very likely that something has been damaged on the motherboard, rather than the battery itself. I'd advise having it examined by a repairer.
