    I have seen a couple, but not spectacular flames. Like the size of a lighter flame and short lived.

    When looking at the screenshot, could you maybe tell us possibly causes for this?

    No, one appeared to be a display cable short and one involved an end-user's soldering job on a DC port.

    Unlikely, the machine does not use a unique adapter, it is used across other models.

    Is it still currently used with newer models or has the switch over to non mobile gpu cards changed things?

    Original 240W power supply. I don't have it in hand at the moment but since it's been 3 years plus it is original part surely the part number could be found somewhere.

    Here are the images again. These were taken a week after the incident and right before I dumped it in the bin. The board was dusty when I dissembled the laptop but since I left it bare for a week in that state more dust was collected.

    I never had a 330W adapter. Note that the laptop was the 15-inch P750ZM but I believe it shared the exact same configs as the P770ZM, just smaller screen.
