Complete Hardware Failure Warning of PS3 Controller Charger attachment to Lenovo G50

Hey everyone, my Lenovo G50 laptop ( I bought it in store from bestbuy January of last year). Recently had a hardware failure and it seems to be directly linked to my attempt of charging my 3DS via PS3 controller charger by powering it through my laptop usb. 


I wanted to charge my 3DS but didn't have my original charger so I saw that you can charge it with a PS3 controller charger. That worked. I had my laptop off the battery for the night. The battery died overnight the next morning it wouldnt turn on. I tried leaving it putting on the charger for about 10-15 mins and it still would not turn on. I made sure my plug was working and all of that. A friend of mine recently sent me a lenovo charger to see if my charger died. It still did not work.



So this is a warning that although not 100% sure, DO NOT insert a PS3 Controller Charger into a Lenovo G50. I'm not sure if the same would happen on other models.
