I am trying to charge my Galaxy S4 in my laptop but no matter which USB port it is in it will not charge. It is completely dead now. I am abroad and the adapter doesn't charge it either. HELP!

At first glance I can see (at least) one of the following problems:

  • The phone's "charging system" is dead(worst case).
  • Cable/charger is broken
  • Battery is dead.

Of course I cannot deduct something more precise, because of the lack of information you provide, but what I would do is the following:

  • Ask someone to lend you a micro usb cable to try charge it(use both wall plugs along with adapter and a PC usb port).
  • If the above wont work, take it to a local electronics shop to test your battery.
  • If the above fails too, you are probably unlucky.
