I have ASUA A52j laptop, when I am charging, my display started generating random flickers and then monitor froze, finally shuts down suddenly, although the laptop is on. Please help.

- And it was an original ASUS charger with the right voltage wattage? Or an unsuitable third party charger?
- What happens if you disconnect the charger, turn the laptop off and reboot?

Thanks Kees_B, unfortunately it was is a third party charger I bought. My original charger was lost, but I matched the exact voltage when bought. Disconnecting charger solve the problems, laptop works fine on battery mood. I bought two chargers actually, same problem.

And get one from ASUS? I've bought parts from ASUS USA PARTS many times over the years.

Thanks, its hard to find the original adapter here, currently trying to solve the problem with different software (although I know its not possible). Probably I have to move to new adapter.

I see this is a fairly high Watt adapter. Is your replacement rated for the 90 Watts?
