    Hi all, i have a Medion MIM2320, MD96654 and all of a sudden it turned off and smoke came out of near where the charger is plugged in so i took the charger out and it stopped smoking, i was able to turn the laptop on again with no problems, but now the battery is dead.

    The smoke was an orangey colour and had a funny smell.

    Sorry for my basic description but any thought would be appreciated

    Thanks

    Eoin

    Sounds like the charging circuit is Up In Smoke, you will need to take it to a reputable Laptop repair center or Buy a new laptop.

    I would not continue to use it, it may be a fire hazard, burn the house down.
