Hello everyone, Recently my ASUS A53U laptop won't turn on and will not charge. When the power cord is connected, the indicator light on the cord starts to blink. However, when disconnected from the laptop it is a steady green. I have tried multiple different power cords so I don't think that is the issue. What else could be a cause of this? Some things I have tried include unplugging the laptop, removing the battery and holding the power button to drain any excess power, then plugging it in, but that also does not work. Any ideas of what it could be would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Can you run the laptop from the AC adapter with the battery removed? If that works, you need a battery. If you can't run the laptop without the battery, that's probably a bad mainboard.


Yes, Mr. Death... I'll play you a game! But not CHESS !!! BAH... FOOEY! My game is...

No, unfortunately the laptop does not work with the battery disconnected. I was thinking it might be the mainboard as well, but I was curious if there could be anything else that could cause it. Thank you for the reply though.
