Thanks patreg, that's what i first thought, but i've turned off the ACPI control driver for the battery, although now it doesn't show the battery status, everything seems to be working fine running on battery power. So now i'm not so sure. I tried reloading the driver too, in case it was corrupt, but that made no difference.

You may have a defective battery. It no longer delivers the required voltage to make your laptop work optimally. Some components will not work when those do not receive enough electricity. When you insert the plug to the mains you get the required power to make the components of your laptop work. You may try to remove your battery and plug to the mains. If this works without problems, then you must change your battery.

Bumped my Acer Aspire 5601AWLMi rather hard. Everything froze and after hard booting it will not come on.


Sounds like this is most likely a hard drive issue... You may have scratched your disks with the bump. When you boot up your computer, you should hear a beep - this is your POST (bios startup). If you hear this beep, but the computer does not boot any further, it is almost certainly a Hard drive issue. Some computers don't always play an audible 'beep' but if your computer shows the initial boot screen then goes black, or freezes up during the OS load, you can expect that you will need a new drive. If this is the case and you have experience in a fresh installation of an Operating System as well as experience in installing a hard disk drive into a laptop, then you can buy a new hard drive and DIY. If you do not have experience in these areas, I strongly suggest taking your computer to an expert to have it fixed.


If you don't hear the beep or the initial boot screen never displays, you may have a major issue with the motherboard itself. Either you have dislodged a necessary connection between components or you have broken a circuit. In this case, unless you are a seasoned hardware professional, I suggest bringing your computer to an expert to have it looked at.

Acer Aspire 5602WLMI water in keyboard


Here is a great deal on a replacement keyboard:
http://www.sunvalleyus.com/AcerKeyboard/Acer-5601AWLMi-5602WLMi.html
To replace it, first of all, remove the power connector and the battery before you do anything on that laptop.

remove the 3 screws in the middle cover. remove that middle cover by putting a screwdriver in one of those holes which are covering the displaybrackets. pull it up slowly. same thing goes for the opposite side.

remove the 2 screws which are holding the keyboard and the cable to the mainboard.
Reassembly is the reverse of dissasembly, be careful with the ribbon cable as its fragile, and there is a little plastic piece that either pulls up or pulls out that releases the cable.
One of the easiest repairs to a laptop there is.

My Acer Aspire 9805 battery was replaced. For


It could be an AC adaptor issue.

It should boot when connected directly to the power outlet through the laptop adaptor. If it is not boot, then the adaptor might not be supplying the needed power to boot it up.

If it is possible, try to isolate the issue. Charge your new battery using another laptop. Then plug it in your laptop to see if it works. If it will work, then it is the AC adaptor of your laptop that is defective. If the charged battery still won't make the laptop boot, then there is something wrong with your laptop hardware. If could be a motherboard issue of your laptop.
