I have an Acer Aspire One model ZG5 and have problems with it not turning on now 4 times. I have only had it for 3 years and pd $300 for it and have put over $300 into it for repairs. I am frustrated as...


Hi,


Im very sorry to hear that, please follow these simple steps for you to be able to isolate the exact problem.


1. Removed the battery.
2. Connect the laptop directly to the power outlet without using the battery just for the meantime.
3. Turn on the laptop. If the laptop is able to power on, that means that the AC adapter is working fine as well as the DC port. If the laptop is not able to turn on, it maybe the AC adapter itself or the DC port.
4. Try to use another AC adapter if possible, make sure that that AC adapter is working fine. If the laptop is still not turning on, the problem is with the DC port itself. In that case, you will need to replaced the Motherboard itself.


Hope this will help...Thank you for using Fixya...

You could try another battery.But if another battery doesn't work,sorry mate I think it's dead.In future make sure you only use what you know is compatible,also NEVER try to run the PSP with the AC adaptor without the battery in.The PSP safety and support booklet states: Do not use the PSP system with the AC Adaptor when the Battery Pack is not inserted in the system.If the AC Adaptor is disconnected suddenly,it may result in damage to the system.

If it is the motherboard that's burnt out I think you can replace it but they're expensive I think,I saw one for a PSP1000 for

Borrow a "MultiMeter" and check the VOLTAGE and AMPERAGE output from the battery. Although it's rare for an 18-month-old battery to "die" (or to refuse to recharge), it can happen.

If you try to run the computer _only_ on the battery, without AC power, does it work? If not, replace the battery -- look on eBay for cheaper-than-Original-Equipment replacement batteries.

Compaq Evo doesnt turn on.


When you plug the laptop to the power adapter, you should see the indicator led lit up telling that it has good connection to the ac adaptor. It wont turn on because either there is a loose connection to the power adaptor and hasn't been charging the battery, or the power adaptor itself is bad. Check the power plug with a miltimeter, it should be around 19 Volts.

Doesn't turn on unless plugged into ac adaptor


You may have to replace the battery or it's possible there's a short circuit on the battery line that's why it's not charging.

POWER DEAD using different adapter(universal) after 2 days.


Sounds like you killed the motherboard. Find a local repair shop or someone on craigslist who will diagnose it for free. Wait while they do it, should only take 5-10 minutes to confirm your worst fears.

Battery on lap top is not charging


switch off - disconnect ac adaptor - wait 3 seconds - connect ac adaptor - repeat about 20 times.
Is charge light blinking when you connect ac adaptor?
Try reseating battery.
If battery is old (over 2 years) or heavily used then it may need replacing. They only last for 250-500 complete discharges.

TV seems to be dead


Yes with an LCD it can be dead. The life of LCD is not nearly that of a tube TV. It depends on the hours of use. Most likely time to replace it.
Good luck,

sounds like you have an intermittent problem with your AC adaptor or dc input jack. Does the light on the AC adaptor light up when you plug it in? If it does then your dc input jack may be faulty. If the light on the ac adaptor does not light then replace the ac adaptor. Good Luck!
