Charging, battery, and voltage

After a little feud with mother, she attempted to capture my charger. Feeling a little daring, I used this weird piano cord that gives lower or not higher than 12 volts to attempt to charge my Asus x453s. It didn't work. The laptop wasn't connected for more than 5 minutes on that weird thing. As soon as I received my charger the next day, I tried to charge my laptop with about 5% left. It detected that it was charging, but I never ever had experienced my laptop go down till 1% and die while connected to my normal power source. I noticed that after 20 minutes, the indicator didn't light up, and I couldn't open my laptop even though I held the power button for more than a minute, repeatedly, or just one press.


What can I do to fix this? Thank you for the help!

If the polarity was the wrong way it would kill it instantly. Your going to need to take it to a shop, chances are there is a sacrificial part which fails to save the rest of the laptop. It will need to be stripped down and the part replaced by a professional or sending back to ASUS.

You have learnt the hard way, always use the correct power supply unless you know exactly what you are doing.

I did a little research with polarity and looked onto the adapter itself - it's a Newstar NA-1000rs set to the positive sign and at 12 volts. So is the laptop still fine because the connection is positive? So sorry, not a professional :(

So does this mean my laptop is fine? This adapter works with the piano that it is connected to, though. I suspect it's severe battery drainage; this was the first time it had a drain. What are your thoughts? I appreciate the time and effort you did to help me. <3

Does the laptop work with the correct original adaptor? If no then the laptop needs repairing but it should be a simple fix for someone who knows what they are doing. Cannot guarantee though, it could be more serious.

It doesn't open with the original adapter. I will update soon (maybe a few weeks) and bring back as much information if we get it through a professional. For the meantime, let's just hope for the best.
