A metal pin inside the charger socket came off and got stuck in the charger --> impossible to charge the laptop since one of the connectors isn't touching. Said charger socket is attached to the motherboard. The connector had been designed by a 3-year-old. The metal pin about 1mm thick, but gets thinner to around 0.5mm just where it's attached to the laptop. It didn't even break off, the soldering just came off by putting and pulling out the charger. The charger cable was also a straight one, not an L shaped one, so it moves around even more. The problem is really common with my computer model, and there's a mile long thread on the ASUS forums about this problem.

Since the only real problem was that I couldn't charge the battery, I had battery time to back up everything to my external hard drive. Which broke. Since ASUS specifically said that they would have to format the internal hard drive for testing I thought all hope was gone.
So everything worked out fine in the end Smiley

So that's the power of warranty? *searching my ASUS card*

The question is: have you started performing backups yet?

Meh, no. Why would I? Everybody knows a computer can't break TWICE in a short time, right?

Yes, I have backed up everything I really need online, but I'll need a new external harddrive before I start backing up bigger files. Not that I have many left, everything was on my external hard drive. I'm just glad I didn't lose my programming for the last 10 months... xd We'll see if I can squeeze some money out of the store in Sweden when I get back for the hard drive... It should at least have 1 year of warranty, right? I'll probably make it within 2 or 3 days of that time limit. =D Just need to find the receipt in Sweden first, but I actually keep track of those things.
