Hello, Please help me with my acer aspire 5310 laptop. I mistakenly connected a printer adapter to it, so it got spoilt. It does not power on, even when I remove the battery and use only the adapter. I guess the problem is with the mainboard. Can you tell me how to find the IC or other components I may need to change on the board. Or what else should I do. Thanks

The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord. Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.
If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.
The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.
If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.
hello, probably when the power jack was being changed, a connector cables was mistakenly tampered with,
therefore in order to fix this, try to unscrew the laptop, check all available cable that makes a connection. once you sight the cable that was tampered with, connect it back to its normal place, screw thelaptop back together then turn it on.
Try using external USB HUB (POWERED) Adapter. It might fix this issue. Use an other USB cable and see. If the problem still exist do not plug in the printer again, you may damage your USB port or even burn your laptop motherboard. hope this helped
