Acer aspire 7551 Battery will not charge.

I Have had this lap top for 4 months I bought it from walmart the lap top is great when it works.. So far I have had to send it back to acer 3 times mother board hard drive and power failure..... I got it back today from the power failure repair and was happy until i plugged it in and relized it was not charging the battery I called acer and they explained that is is a bad battery and my response was that How can it be a battery if it has a full charge on it and was fine before i sent it in? They are sending me a new battery But i have a feeling this is not the issues it seems that the laptop it self is not charging the battery Is there a Flash for bios or any way to fix this with out sending it back to them any help would be appreciated Steps ive already tryed . Unplugging the pc and taking out the battery and holding the power button down for 2 mins flashing the bios No Updates where found for this model Hours Trying to reset the battery from inside the Windows I can not seem to find any help on this matter for my model?.

    New battery came it is as i thought the new battery is not taking a charge thanks to the poor manufacturing and crappy customer support i will now have to send my laptop in for a 4th time never ever buy a aspire series from acer. Worst waste of 550 Bucks ever spent!

    this time when you send it in, demand a new board or a new charging board. Im not sure although I saw a couple of different boards for your laptop whether or not it has a seperate board to charge the battery. If it does have a seperate board, demand a new one. It isn't right that they keep sending the problem back to you. Just make sure you mention that the Board isn't charging the battery.

I had a similar problem with a laptop years ago...Where the battery terminals connect to the motherboard, and Im not sure about yours because the models are obviously way different, but in some, they use "battery boards" that connect to the motherboard and are seperate from the system. Those "battery boards" have lots of micro capacitors and resistors on them and are responsible for charging the battery and completing the power circuit to "start" the computer. If I took the battery board out of the laptop I had, the whole thing wouldn't work. Since your laptop is starting while plugged in, but the battery is not charging...I would look into this area first. I am going to rummage around to see if I can find a schematic of your laptop and maybe some parts info.

    I have the Lap top under warrenty and they are sending me a new battery but as a i stated i dont believe that the battery is the issue i will post if that fixes the problem

  • J Grant Jun 21, 2012

    I agree that the battery is not the issue. The issue is that the board is not charging the battery. This is a hardware issue, so there is nothing you can do within windows or BIOS to fix this. let me know what happens with the new battery...

SOURCE: Had to re-load realtek RTL8185 Lan Configeration

it is possible that the audio driver to still be in the system ..but just mixed up with the local area connection driver...(network card ..from what you have said ..) The way to do it insert the cd with the motherboard drivers if you have it ..and in there you will find the sound driver ..and all you have to do is run it ..and restart when you finish ..and the sound will be back ...If the card is not on need the driver from the sound card ..and you either download it if you know the card's name ..or have the disk and install it from it ...
The best way is to identify the exact driver..or if you know you have the original configuration and you know the exact name of your system (motherboard) ..just get to the support site of acer..and download the driver for the sound after you select the model and the operation system ..
here is the support site ..but cause you didn't specified the exact sound card model or at least the computer's model name ..I can not select it for you..
If you know all these info ..just write me here in a comment and I will look for the driver..(specify the operation system please)
if you think that you never uninstalled the driver ..try to install it auto by getting into the device manager (right click on my computer ..and hardware ...device manager ..In here locate the sound card if it is in yellow..and click right and select update driver ...follow instructions and install it if the driver is still in the system ..
If you have the driver for the sound stored in computer ..just click to run it ..and continue until restart ..
or ..consult this site for it ..

Toshiba sataellite c855d-s5320 says no bootable device upon start up

I bought the same computer from Walmart for my daughter for Christmas. I have had to send it in three times to have the hard drive fixed as it showed the same error that you were getting. I was very mad as the first time I had to pay $25 to have them ship me the box to send it in to them. I also tried at first to return it back to Walmart but was told it was to late and I would have to go through Toshiba. I just received it back again today. They have had to replace the hard drive three times. This is ridiculous as I have had several other computers and laptops and have never had to have a hard drive replaced before. I told them I was not paying the last two times to send it in for repair as it should never of had to go to them the first time. The girl did send me the box free the last two times but honestly I think they should just give me a whole new computer as I think these ones are lemons! I cannot believe a brand new computer would need to have a hard drive replaced 3 times in 5 months! The girl advised me if it had to go back again they would probably finally do something. I sure hope your is working better then mine.

I bought the water resist watch from walmart this evening it doesnt have a name brand on the watch but i think its a casio but it didnt come with the instructions on how to use it, the number on the back...

Thank you for contacting FixYa.
  • There should be four buttons: mode, reset, start and light. Find the mode button and press it three times until it is in the set time mode.
  • 2 Find the reset button, which usually is located on the bottom right side of the watch face, and hold it until the time starts blinking.
  • 3 Press the start button to change minutes.
  • 4 Press the reset button again to switch to hours. You will know it worked when the hour starts blinking instead of the minutes.
  • 5 Press the start button to change the hour. The watch can handle two modes: standard and military. As you press start, the hour will change from AM to PM, noted by an "A" or a "P" in the top right. When you get through 24 hours, the watch will change to military time and an "H" will be displayed instead of "A" or "P." Keep pressing start to go through another 24-hour cycle and it will revert back to standard time.
  • 6 Press the reset button to switch to the date, starting with the month, and press start to change it.
  • 7 Press reset one last time to switch from month to the day, and again press the start button to switch days.
  • 8 Press the mode button to finish the changes.

    Hi i recently bought a 5920 acer laptop ,i used it for couple months ,while using it one day i pluged in the charger and left the room for couple minutes only to dicover it was not on anymore since then...

    sounds like power pack. Look for your warranty papers. Or, call ACER in your country and arrange repair (might also be the laptop itself). They can arrange pick up and repair under warranty.
