    This problem is from a friend of mine but he doesn't has a computer now. Yesterday he was charging his powerbank through his Laptop (Asus bought 3 months ago) USB port. After a while the computer was shutdown and won't turn on, even when it's plugged through its power adapter.

    Is there any solution to this?

    Hi and welcome to TSG.

    As annoying as it can be to have to do it, your best option if it appears totally dead is to RMA the laptop if it is only 3 months old. Fiddling about with it too much trying to diagnose the problem could end up invalidating any warranty your friend has.

    The only simple checks I would do are to try and power it up with and without the power cord connected.
    Then remove the battery (assuming it is a removable one) and try it again with the power adapter attached.

    It could be a problem with the laptop or that the power brick has just failed, it happens occasionally.
