Your power settings may be set up to inform you at 90% the battery is getting low.

Windows XP
Go to control panel, Performance and Maintaince(only in catigory view), Power Settings click Alarms tab and adjust the sliders to the desired.

Windows Vista
Go to control panel, click change battery settings, find the option selected click the link below it saying Change Plan Settings, click the link change advanced power settings, go to the battery section and adjust the low battery level and critical level.

Have acer one message says to plug into ac adapter


Check the AC adapter and power cord. It sounds as if either one end of the cord near the transformer box is loose, or the end that plugs into the computer is loose/not connecting properly.
Failing that, make sure the wall socket you have the cord plugged into has power (try plugging something else into it). If everything I mentioned checks out, there could be something wrong with your battery.

Computer wont turn on. power button light flashes


hello, if the power button is flashing and wont power on, remove all other device that is connected, like LAN cable, mouse, etc., remove battery and power.. leave it for like a minute or two. power on the computer w/o the battery and connect power cord directly to the wall outlet. see if that will work if not bring computer to a local tech for hardware repair, and if computer is still in warranty you can call the acer for hardware warranty repair. Thank you for using Fixya.

Can I use my acer if the battery is dead but its plugged in


Yes, you can but not if the battery is missing. I had a similar problem and it wouldn't work when the battery was removed or if the battery wasn't properly inserted.

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

Windows not shutting down


You could try unplugging your laptop and taking the battery out, wait a few minutes put the battery back in, then plug it back in to the wall receptable, if you were working on something you wanted to save when this happend it might not keep any of the information, you should be able to boot it back up normally.

Booting issues...i guess


you are in shutdown with battery. try it without battery to eliminate one issue. Then, you may need to recharge battery fully, for around 12 hours.

got backup for that Acer?
