Default Tracing issues on asus motherboard.

Hi there guys I have a question which im hoping you could answer to prevent further issues. I've had a asus laptop one of 3 others and for a while its been giving me issues mainly randomly turning off ( when not on charge )
seemed to somewhat coincide with movement. I assumed something must be loose and shorting in there. Recently it did it again and then never came back on. I opened it up to find 3 blown ics by the charging block ( i assume this due to the charged look of them). I took it to be replaced by a buddy of mine who knows a little more than I do. This laptop has very much been unused and never bumped or anything like that, what could have caused such a thing because if it was a short from say something loose my charging cable or a capacitor would it just blow first time why did it keep doing it and turn on, i almost feel like there may be another issue and this is just the result of that.

The first thing that came to me was that you used a wrong charger.

I came on a Celeron and now my PC has Ryzen!

As Celery said, first suspect would be that you used the wrong charger with too high voltage. Otherwise. a foreign object may have gotten in there somehow and shorted things or it could have simply been a defective component that had an early life failure.
