Solved Asus X53s Laptop Tripped?

March 1, 2018 at 08:31:36
Specs: Windows 7
I have a ASUS X53s, my laptop randomly shut down, a bit like the power had tripped out, and I couldn't turn it on again.

I looked at the charger and the blue light had gone out indicating that it wasn't receiving any power so assumed that it hadn't been charging and I hadn't noticed.

Playing around I took the battery out and put it back in and after that the laptop turned on with over half its battery power.

I guess I need a new charger but it possible for the charger to trip the whole laptop out? or is there something else wrong the laptop?

Any Help is greatly appreciated!!

Maybe with a power surge, yes but I would have thought that would have taken the whole laptop and basically kill it..
It sounds like there was just a loose connection with the battery, but then again, the charger not working, sort of dismisses the whole idea...
Has this ever happened before, and is the charger original from Asus?

I am not really sure what happened, maybe someone else does, or if it happens again let us know.

While taking out the laptop battery and putting it back in has solved the laptop the charger still doesn’t work, so possible a power surge from the charger itself knocked out the laptop?

The charger is from ASUS. I just wanted to make sure there wasn’t anything wrong with the laptop that caused this before spending money on a charger for the same thing to happen again.

✔ Best Answer
Could be both - faulty charger and battery connection problem. Maybe you've been running on domestic power without knowing it. See if it charges up and if it runs from the charger without the battery (it should).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I can’t at the moment, the charger isn’t working, only the battery. I am going to get a new charger and I’ll try it then and let you know!
I’m just hoping there isn’t something wrong with the laptop as well haha

I rather doubt you have a laptop problem. Because of the battery backup they are usually fairly tolerant of surges and it is by no means certain there was one.

Have a new charger, works with and without battery in the laptop! So all good now. I now know that If the charger trips out and the laptop won’t turn on, you can take the battery out and put it back in and should work again!
Thanks guys!

Good to hear. It might be an idea to fully discharge the motherboard components, like this:

Turn of computer and unplug power. Remove the battery then hold the Power Off/On button for about 20 seconds before putting it back. Sometimes past events can be memorised and this procedure clears them.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
