If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position thisLED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a drysolder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.

The laptop needs the motherboard removed to get access to the DC jack so it can be resoldered or replaced if it is faulty.
This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

There is a cmos/ rtc battery but that would have nothing to do with powering on your laptop. Most likely there is an issue in the circuit at the DC power jack. If the connection seems loose, or moving the plug at the point where it connects to the computer gives a glimmer of power then it is the jack. The DC jack is usually soldered to the motherboard and requires some knowledge to repair. If the jack is okay then there is a problem further up in the power circuit on the motherboard which means trouble.

This is what you power jack looks like and yours is not soldered, but has a 4 pin connector that plugs in to the motherboard. Much easier to replace than a soldered connection. Click HERE to see it.

P.S. Just because there is a green light on the adapter it doesn't mean power is being distributed to the connector tip. You may want to try a different adapter before spending money to have it diagnosed.

Acer Aspire 5920 won't turn on, the charger lights up, (bright green) until you plug it into the back of the laptop, then the light goes dim and flashes.still no power to the laptop,not even the fan.


Your power supply or regulator in you laptop has gone south. sorry no quick fix for this one. It needs repaired and would include tracking down soldered connections.

sorry to tell you this.

Dear Sir,

By analysing your problem it seems to be your adapter dead.So first check your adapter,so your laptop battery may not have backup to turn on the laptop.

Your motherboard is probably shorting out your A/C adapter, you may need a new motherboard. With a Dell, the A/C adapter light will be green when plugged into the wall but as soon as you plug it into the PC the green light goes off. Which means that the Motherboard is shorting out the A/C adapter...

hope this helps

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.

sounds like the power jack at back of computer has gone bad, check voltage of battery and see if it has good power if not then it is dead and not getting charged through port the jack at rear generally requires MB replacement and is very expensive and cheaper to get new laptop, u can remove HD from old lap top and copy data over. another choice is to get stand alone charger for laptop battery and use battery mode,

if battery tested good them there is slight chance power switch is bad
