    please try to get another AC adapter and try it out. try to swap each part of your adapter right from the power source to identified which part is fault. this will help you to minimize costs of repairing.

My Acer aspire 4935 is not recognizing the AC adapter. When ever I shutdown the system and connects the AC adapter, it works and the charging LED lights up. Once I press the power button to boot the...


Problem description:The battery charges only when the laptop turned off. The battery charge LED lights up as normal and the battery gets charged to 100% while the laptop is off.
When the laptop is turned on, the battery charge LED goes off even if the adapter is still plugged in.
Possible cause:1. AC power adapter failure.
2. Battery failure.
3. Broken/loose power jack.
4. Motherboard failure.
Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution:1. This problem could be related to a faulty AC power adapter. It's possible that the AC adapter doesn't provide enough power when plugged into the laptop. To find out if this is your problem, you'll have to test the laptop with another working adapter.Replace the adapter if needed.

2. There is a slight chance that you have bad battery. Test the laptop with a know good battery and replace the faulty one if needed.

3. The battery charge problem could be related to the power jack. Maybe the jack is broken or not making good contact with the motherboard. It is necessary to remove the motherboard and take a closer look at the power jack. Resolder or replace the jack if needed.

4. If the power jack is in a good working shape and new power adapter with battery do not fix the problem, most likely you have a faulty motherboard. Replace the motherboard if needed.

It just wont turn on i have checked the power lead and its ok its an acer aspire 5050 laptop


Hi. I would suggest you double check the ac adapter if the powercord is properly attach to it ot also you might want to try powerdraining or powercycling your computer. To do this you must turn off your laptop then remove the battery and unplug the ac adapter then press and hold the power button for 20 seconds while the battery and ac adapter is out, after that place back the battery and plugin the ac adapter and try turning on your laptop, if this doesnt work then try power draining it again and just use the ac adapter or just plug it in without the battery then try again turning it on. If it still has the power issue then try a known good ac adapter so that you could double check that it is not an ac adapter issue or a battery issue. If all that trouble shooting step doesnt work then you could also try calling acer tech support to help you on your issue if your machine or laptop is still under warranty they would help you fix it by sending that laptop to there depot without any charge. Hope this Helps

Acer Aspire 5315 won't power up. The AC adapter has a green light on it, so it appears to be getting power. The battery indicator light does not light up at all when I try to power it up. Do you think it...


There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.

If this did not help, try disassembling the laptop & re-seating its main components like the memory modules, hard disk drive, CD/DVD drive, etc.

Acer aspire 5520 laptop. Is it dead?


To verify it isn't a battery issue you can try taking the battery out completely and plugging in the A/C adapter and turning it on.

Without more information it's hard it's hard to diagnose your issue more specificially. Do you get any lights on the front?

No power. Adapter light flashes when connected to laptop


thanks for using fixya!!

Please do and observe the following:

1. Uninstall the battery pack.
2. Then, connect the AC adapter, we will try to use the power coming from the AC, then turn on your laptop.
3. Observe what will happen.
4. If still doesn't work, install again the battery, then connect the AC adapter, check if its going to work.
5. If not, perhaps you have a problem neither with the battery or the AC adapter.

I suggest that you bring your laptop to a service center. Good luck!

pls rate me positively! thanks!

Computer stoped working


If you're certain that the battery is fully charged, then there could be an issue with your hard drive, or possibly motherboard.

Has the laptop ever been wet, or outdoors overnight?

See if you can boot from your disk drive by inserting your operating system disk in the drive when you turn it on.

Also double check that the outlet you're using is actually supplying power, I have bad outlets in some parts of my house where my laptop won't charge up.

Hope that helps, keep me posted

Laptop stoped working


I have an Aspre 3680 as well, and a flashing adapter light is not a good sign, I suggest you get a multi meter and test for to make sure you are getting the 19 volts output that are required to run the laptop and charge the battery.

My goal is to provide you with a helpful fix ya solution, if you found this advice helpful please rate it as Fixya, thanks
