It could be the cord, if it is frequently bent right at the connector the wires inside can be broken. You can obtain a replacement plug that can be soldered onto the wires from RadioShack. you'll need to cut the old plug off, about an inch from the connector to make sure you eliminate the bad part of the wire. You must be sure to get the polarity of the plug correct or you can damage the PC or the battery. The power pack may have a diagram with the polarity.

It could also be the power jack on the PC itself. With frequent use the jack solder joints could have cracked and are no longer making a connection. They can be re-soldered to correct the problem, but it is a tedious task to take it apart to get to it.

If you have a MultiMeter, Analog or Digital (DMM) you can use it to test the power pack for output, as well as use it to determine the polarity. With the meter connected you can bend the wire to see if it breaks the power connection, if it does you just need to replace the plug.

Hope this helps :)

SOURCE: acer 5920 wont charge.

Hi,
The problem is not the ram.
Remove the battery and try to boot the laptop up on AC power only, if it boots up then the problem is not the charger.
If the result is the same then there is a problem with the laptop's motherboard or the adapter itself is faulty.
If the latter is the case then you will need to take the laptop to a service center or PC repair store.



Regards.

SOURCE: Acer aspire laptop won't charge

Hi,
First of all you have to determine whether it's the battery, charger or the laptop itself.
Remove the battery and boot the laptop on AC power only, if the laptop boots up you can rule out the charger and the laptop, you may need a new battery if that is the case.



Regards.

Laptop wont start.


Remove the battery and unplug the power cord for 5 minutes, put in the either the battery or the powercord and power on.

if it doesn't power on, make sure the charging light is lit on the front of the laptop when the power adapter is inserted and plugged in properly.

light blinking when you power on means battery low / no power.

If the problem doesn't go away you need to contact acer for warranty service if you are outside warranty contact a local repairer.

My battery wont charge but it says its charging. When I unplug the cord 3 times itll go up by 1%


Have you tried replacing the battery? It sounds like the charger circuit is attempting to charge the battery and the battery is not accepting the charge.

Acer aspire 5517 wont power up


Sounds like your power cord/charger got fried. Either that or the motherboard. Bring it to a pc shop and have them test the power cord/charger.

MD781 battery wont charge...will run with the power cord plugged in, I replace the battery first thinking that may be the trouble. Still wont charge...it would run for a short while on the battery when...


Hi

Can you please try to leave laptop switched off
plug in laptop and leave until the light on front goes green or at least 2/3 hrs

then unplug power cord
switch on laptop and use it or leave it until it looses all power and switches off

then recharge until green

when battery is fully charged always un plug and use on battery power
until it reaches about 10% before recharging

some people even remove their battery to preserve it if they always use power cord

if this does not sort the problem please come back to us

many thanks

My computer wont turn on. It is charged, the screen wont come up.


Remove the battery and then plug it back and then try to turn it on.
Connect it to the charger and then check if the laptop turns on if it does then the battery of your laptop has to be replaced and if it does not boot up or turn on even after pluggin the power cord then take the computer to the computer manufacturer as it has some hardware problem.

I have an Aspire 7736Z-4809 and it seems that the battery isn't working. If I unplug the power strip the computer shuts off. Is this the battery or the settings or the plug? Any thoughts?


Unplug the laptop then remove the battery. Reseat the battery, plug the laptop back in. Then restart your laptop. Give it 5-10min to allow for a small charge and then remove your charger again. If the laptop shuts off immediately it is quite likely that your battery has failed. This is quite common for batteries. If you're under warranty please contact the manufacturer. Else you will likely find a cheaper battery solution on ebay. -Ravi Shanghavi

Easynote r1004 wont power on


The battery is too low and the power supply can't charge the battery and also power the laptop at the same time.

Try this:
1. Remove the battery from the laptop
2. Plug in the power cord and turn ON the laptop.
3. It should work ok.
4. After the laptop is "stable" (what 5 minutes?), you can put the battery back into the laptop while it is ON.
5. Leave the laptop ON so the battery can get charged.
6. Lower / close the lid so that the screen will turn OFFand not take up power from recharging the battery.

If this doesn't work for you, try these steps again, maybe wait a few minutes between steps.

This WILL work!

Hope this helps!

If you have a local PC repair shop near you, take it in and see if they have another charger they can try out on your machine. They shouldn't charge you anything, we are just trying to find out if your charger is bad and not allowing enough voltage through the device to power the laptop up.

Acer aspire 3500 wont hold charge or turn on


I had to buy an new ac/dc plug piece off of ebay (cost only like $3 bucks) to sodder onto the mother board of my Acer. Somehow the little plastic/metal piece you plug into your computer comes off the mother board really easy. Acer wanted me to purchase a whole new mother board (at frigging $350), which, frankly wasn't an option. So I bought the little plug gizmo, soddered it on, and I'm doing good now.

acer aspire 5335-2257 replaced 4 pin power jack intermittent power, only runs with battery but barely charges. acer aspire 5335-2238. My son's friend recently asked me to take a look at his laptop because he couldn't get it to take a charge or run without the battery when plugged in. Right away I noticed the dc jack was charred and the plastic around it melted. He said the power cord "brick" got really hot, all the way to the tip where it plugs into the laptop. I know the bricks can get warm but he said it actually burned his sister. I ended up replacing the dc jack and 4 pin harness with a new one and figured this would solve the power issue. It won't get power with the original power cord and I also tried a few others that were similar. The only one that worked was an adaptor that I think went to a cordless phone or something like. The next problem was I had to fiddle with the dc jack to get the yellow battery light on. Still won't turn on without battery. The battery at this point is drained so I left it plugged in all day, at least 12 hours and the green light finally came on indicating a charged battery. The battery only charged about 8-9% and died fast. I tried more adaptors and got another one to light up the yellow battery light, again a small modem adaptor, not one with the brick. This time I left it over night and got about 12% charge. Both times the laptop turned on, booted up and ran until the battery died after about 5 min. I'm out of ideas aside from maybe a bios problem but I can't get it to stay on long enough to do anything about it. I don't understand why the new jack isn't working, it's a pretty simple install, no soldering. I looked real close at the board and didn't see any obvious fried chips or anything like that. Any suggestions would be great. I've had this 14 year old kid's laptop for almost 2 weeks trying to figure it out (I also replaced his keyboard, disc drive and cleaned it up) and he's calling me every day.
