There can be one of several issues with the computer.

1. the power block is bad. (is there a light on the power block?)

2. the battery is bad.

3. the charging/power board in the laptop is bad.

I would start with the battery and the powerblock, as it is easier to deal with. Do you know anyone with a similar machine that you can swap the battery or the power block with to test? If not usually the place of purchase will assist with this.

Hi SofaSW !

Is this a laptop we are talking about here or a desktop PC ?

If it is a laptop, they you might have a failing battery pack. Batteries will of course fail over time but as yours has occured with only 10 months, I would imagine that you are still covered by a warranty of where you purchased the computer from.

Give them a call and see what they say. Chances are they'll need information like how long does it stay on for. Does it stay on if the main cable is plugged in. Things like that.

If the battery is failing then they should be able to issue you with a replacement, and that replacement should be covered by another warranty, but be sure to ask if they do replace it for you!

Hope this helps!
David

The Dell Mini-Tower Studio computer won't turn on? This occurred about 4 months ago it did the same, then all of a sudden we pushed the button and it turned on.


The power source is failing - it will have to be replaced. You can find a generic 400 watts one in almost every shop that sells pc's. Installing it is easy - the cables plug only the right way.

is there a reset button on the power supply. if so try that. you might have accidently disconnected the hard drive cable. unplug AC and check all the connectors around the area where you installed the video card. make sure everthings connected. then before u close the case re connect the AC and check visually if the power is on and if everthings running.

Hi, it sounds like your charger is not working correctly. My advice is to contact Acer Support.

They may ask you to return it to them but generally have the problem fixed and the laptop back to you within 10 days.
