Question about Acer Aspire 5100-5022 Notebook

Replaccement AC adapter charger issue

I have an Acer Aspire 5100-3949 (out of warranty) and my dog chewed into the AC adapter/charger thereby creating a small break in the wiring. It will still function somewhat if wiggled but I also have had arcing thereby making it possibly dangerous to continue to use.

That being said, I have tried to purchase replacements from sources like EBay and had each seller confirm that it was compatible with my specific laptop.

I have had to return them because they made my touchpad act erractically (i.e., cursor not responding, cursor only moving in certain directions, etc.) however once operating on either battery or original adapter the touchpad acts normally.

I have checked Acer’s website and the model adapter/charger that seems to be compatible is out of stock.

Any ideas on what would cause this behaviour and what to look for, in terms of specs, to attempt to avoid the problem on the next purchase.

Thanks in Advance,

    I have to keep unplugging/plugging in the adapator to the laptop and not move it in order for it to charge. If the battery drains completely, it won't charge at all while the laptop is on. The power cord is not damaged in any way. Suggestions?

If you used electrical tape and firmly wrap the tape around, your cable should be secure enough to continue use. Just be careful around your dog.

I hope this helps address your problem.

Is the new cord/charger/transformer the EXACT same power specs? When your "dog ate your charger", it may have shorted out something in the Laptop? Was it plugged it when your dog ate it?

Laptop keyboard does not work after dog laid on computer


Tell dog to grab it's allowance, and buy you a new laptop

NO?

Then protest around the dog daily until it does

(No, you have to feed it)


[Hold the dog's chew toy for ransom. Chew on it a little bit so dog will get the message.
"Hey! Ain't kidding around here! Laptop or I keep this!" ]

OR,

Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.
Press the Power On button, and hold it in for a count of 10 seconds.
(And I mean 10. Count; 1001,..1002,..1003,...etc)

Let go of the Power On button. Do this procedure two more times.
Reinstall Battery, THEN reattach AC adapter to laptop, and THEN plug AC adapter into power.

WAIT 1 minute,....turn the laptop on.

2 ac adaptors have stopped working on acer laptop


Take the battery out. Unplug the charger from the computer. Press the On button for 30 seconds. Then plug the charger in. If it works, then put the battery back in and you're in business again.

If it still can't work, perhaps the charger you bought is a dead one, just contact the seller to get a replacement one after all you have used it for about a few minutes. If you don't believe in that seller, just contact them for the refund and go to other vendor for a new adapter. I recommend the following one for you:

Don't do that if you are not good for repairing laptop. That will damage your laptop and be dangerous.

Either repair your laptop adapter or buy a new adapter. If you can't let your laptop charger repaired by yourself, you had better replace a new charger.If you are on a budget on a new charger, consider buying a third party charger:Intocircuit Acer Aspire 5251 AC Adapter 65Watt 19V 3.42A

I have lost my lead to my acer laptop aspire5100 series model number BL51 19v .474Acan you help.I am a mature age person thanking you Pat


There are two solutions to this problem, Pat.

One is to buy the correct AC adapter (Charger) for the laptop.
Two is to buy an aftermarket AC adapter that will work for your laptop, but will also work for many other laptops.

1) http://www.usbphoneworld.com/acer-adapter-19342-65w-lc-adt01-aspire-5520-ac-acer-aspire-5100-ac-adapter.html?CAWELAID=950033775

The above is from a quick search. Your search may be better. Just put Acer Aspire 5100 charger, in your search box.

2) From another quick search,

http://www.atbatt.com/laptop-chargers/b/acer/m/aspire-5100.asp?utm_source=google&utm_medium=ppc&utm_keyword=Acer+Aspire+5100+Charger&utm_content=NAC-X90-22&utm_campaign=google0&gclid=CLeDr7qIlqsCFQ9S7Aodvn_TXA

Would also like to commend you for your intelligence.
Stating the Voltage, 19V, and the Amperage, 4.74A ,is a really intelligent thing to do.

(The charger MUST have 19 Volts for the Voltage. The Amperage (Amp's, or A), can be more)
