I have an Asus n550jv on Win 10.
Yesterday the 3A fuse in the plug on the charger blew and laptop obviously stopped charging. I replaced the fuse with another 3A and this blew immediately after connecting to the mains with the laptop end hooked up.
The laptop was still on at this stage and running off battery without any issue.
I tried a different cable between the block on the charger and the mains and I tried using a 5A fuse, with neither having an effect. The fuse did not blow this time but there is still no charging taking place.
Battery has now run out.
I opened it up, removed the battery and put it back and then tried with the 5A fuse again and still nothing.
There is no sign of burning on the laptop that I can see and no obvious smell.
The charger itself looks to be in prefect condition and I have tried it at multiple mains sockets.
I purchased the laptop second-hand, about a week ago.
Is my issue likely to be a faulty charger or am I looking at something much worse?
Also possibly of note is it has been updated to Windows 10 and I'm not sure if any drivers for AC adapter were changed/needed to be changed by this process.
