The charger malfunctioned…
– How is that even possible?
– It is not. Either it’s a short-circuit or it is by default.
– Was it a short-circuit?
– No, not in my opinion (everything else is working just fine; computer, battery and the rest of the grid, that would be my apartment’s entire electrical system).
Remedy? – Try to assemble a new charger before the battery de-pleats and dies all-together. Then the computer will not even attempt to boot and then you are in deep trouble.
Success? – Yes.
