I plugged it in and smoke and flames were coming out of the computer where the charger plugs in. I managed to pull out the charger but dropped it and burned a hole in my carpet. I had to throw the charger outside in the dirt to get the fire out. Is my laptop trashed or would a new charger work? I got it for Christmas in 2019 so it's not under warranty. It was an expensive laptop to last less than two years
