Battery Not Recognized, Short Circuit, $77 ‘Fix’
Model: Asus ROG GL503VD
Hi! So I’ve been having problems with my laptop lately. There was one incident when the charger seemed to have short circuited and it shut the laptop down. I was not able to open it for a couple of days after that. I had it checked and they confirmed it with a circuit tester. (Idk how it works, but apparently the needle shouldn’t be moving and should just be steady.)
I wasn’t able to get it fixed then for various reasons including budget. What do you guys suggest I do? They said I had to pay $77 for the fix + the specific part they are gonna replace. I tried looking for other places and most others only offer a whole motherboard replacement… and I definitely cannot afford that. Should I risk the $77 fix?
I had the battery disconnected but still mounted inside for safety reasons and I am able to use it now by plugging it in. But I move around a lot and having to plug it in every time isn’t very convenient for me.
