Question about Aspire Acer 53152826 Notebook
I have an Acer Aspire 5315. Even when the computer is plugged in and I push the on button the acer screen flashes and then the computer shuts down. The two little lights in the lower left corner - the bulb light turn green but the battery light doesn't come on.
Does this mean I need to replace the "rechargable battery"? If so, what kind is it and where is the battery located in my laptop.
Please help! I'm disconnected from the world right now!!
Try taking the battery out and see if the computer will start normally with the AC adapter. Sometimes the battery can go bad and cause the problem. (Turn the computer over and you'll find a release button for the battery which goes in at the rear of the case.) The battery has a part number on it. Sometimes you can buy replacements locally, or you can search online by battery number of just by typing something like "aspire 5315 replacement battery" in Google.
If the computer still shuts down immediately with no battery, it has a bad system board. If the warranty is over it may be cheaper to replace the computer than to have it repaired. The system board is not a cheap part.

The battery is clipped at the bottom of the laptop, it sounds like the PSU circuit in your laptop has failed and you might want to consider taking it to a computer shop, but get quotes first as some shops still act like cowboys.
