Computer shuts off

I have an Acer Aspire 3000 laptop. It just shut down on me one day and I could not power it back up. I thought it was the battery. I got a new battery and put it in, it worked for 5 minutes , then shut down and will not power up again. It will not work on battery or while plugged in. Help!!!!!

    My Acer Aspire 3000 shut down and will not power up again. I replaced the power cord and that fixed it for a little while but then that quit working. My replacement cord is a multi-purpose one and it still works on other equipment but will not power on my computer.
    The indicator light does not lite up to show that it is getting power but I am
    certain that the cord is not the problem. If I try to power up my conputer the power light just blinks a few times and nothing happends.
    Please help.
    All I need is about a couple of hours to get all of my information off of this
    computer and then I know to never buy an acer again as this is only the most recent of my problems with this computer.

    thanks.

The power jack in the computer is probably worn out. There is a metal tab tab inside the power jack that bends to connect or disconnect the battery when you plug or unplug the adapter. Unfortunately, it wears out and stops disconnecting the battery after a period of time so your computer is always connected to the battery and it never charges. Once the battery discharges the computer shuts down and will not restart. The good news is the dc power jack can be found for under $10 but you need to take the computer apart to install the new jack. The bad news is that it's going to wear out again. Mine did.

Maybe it's your power supply, I suggest you get a voltmeter and check the voltage on the power supply.

Good luck

Unplug the computer, hold the power button down until the laptop shuts down, then remove the battery. Plug in the charger, and try powering up. If all is okay, shut it back down, unplug it, and reinstall the battery. Then, plug it in and let it fully charge. Restart it, plugged in and with the battery installed. Good luck.

Acer Aspire 5002WLMi PC Notebook Laptop shuts down automatically


  • Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
  • Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected.
  • Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
  • When you are finished with all troubleshooting2_bing.gif, close all programs and restart the computer as you normally would.
If this does not work you will probly have to go back to factory settings

Computer immediately shuts down upon starting had the computer on earlier today shut down in stand-by mode. later I tried to restart the computer and once it got to the main screen with the icons shown it...


Ok Take out the battery and leave it out for about an hour. IN the time its out Run the laptop on AC power and then go to control panel, open power options, and remove the hibernation check, and the turn the system standby to never, then hit apply. Then turn you laptop off and re insert the battery. If you still get the shutdown where it wont run on battery, then you need to replace the battery.
