Several days ago, the charger for my ASUS K50IJ laptop (19V, 3.42A) died. So, I bought an Omega universal charger with 11 different plug-ins, but I managed to first use the wrong plug-in (I later saw in the instructions it was for IBM, 16V 3.5/3.36/4.5A).
It didn't charge, so I managed to find the right plug-in, but that didn't charge either. Then I tried a friend's original ASUS charger (that one worked previously), and that won't charge either. Plus, I could smell burning for a sec coming out of the laptop.
So, did I fry the charging unit in the laptop? Can that be repaired? Thanks!
