Lenovo Y50-70 negative (i think) wires keeps burning up...

As the title says and this is my second cable already, the original completely burned the socket so I had to break it to get the new cable to fit the socket. The weird thing about it (to me at least) is that, unless you open the laptop cover, you can't even tell that anything is wrong because everything works fine, my laptop isn't overheating when gaming or anything. (Used to have a heating problem but managed to fix that with Intel Extreme tuning utility and some better drivers). 

Edit: The image of the socket inside the laptop is included below.

Hi AllarAaver,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

I would suggest not to use the WLAN port anymore but rather have it either with the ethernet port or external usb wlan adapter instead. There are things that must be checked internally with the board itself.

 

You can also try calling technical support and show them the image of the burned part for their recommendation. 

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

Update us how it goes for you.

 

Regards

Thank you for the welcome!

And of course, I was stupid enough to forget to mention that that is the power cable, the wire that runs from the motherboard to the charger socket. 

Edit: Though I am curious on how someone from the support team of their own product could mix the two up since they look nothing alike because the WLAN socket connects straight to the motherboard without any additional wires...
