I replaced thermal paste on my Asus x550vx laptop (by following this tutorial), and everything is working well when the laptop is on the battery, However, the laptop won't charge when plugged in.
What I've tried so far:
  • disassembling the laptop again to make sure the wire stemming from the power port is connected to the motherboard (yellow tape on the bottom at 5:07 in the tutorial video)
  • Plugging power cord off, removing the battery, and holding the power key for 60 secs. Then, plugging it in and holding the power key for 60 secs. (This was told to me by asus support, but no luck with this method)
Thermal Paste Used:
Any ideas what might be causing the issue?
