There is a monitor connection on the back of the pc, next to the ac adapter connector. Just plug in your monitor to it and make sure you plug the monitor's power cord into an electrical wall outlet.

I Have an Acer Aspire laptop and evertime you plug in the charger it will show no signs it's connected and the laptop is now out of battery so it will not turn on at all. Even when my charger is plugged...


Please Please Please change your charger right away .. I Got 2 Acer laptop last week and both had same probelm ..if there would be any fluctuations in voltage from your adaptor it will fry up your laptop and you will be in big trouble. Please dont do any experiments on your adapter and change it right away. I Got one laptop last week and customer tried so many angles like you did and fried up his laptop's motheboard already.
Hope you will listen to my suggestion. new charger is not very expensive.
Good Luck !!

My laptop will not charge!! the charger works, but it just wont charge my laptop!


most likely either a bad connector on the power cord or you've broken the motherboard connector. check the power cord with a volt meeter. if it comes up fine the i would recommend either contacting the manufacture or taking it to a reputable tech. if you are comfortable with doing it you can take the laptop apart and look at the connector with the laptop apart plug it in (CAREFULL IT COULD KILL YOU) and test the voltage after the connector wit the volt meeter. if it has power then most likely *********** board is dead. if it doesn't have power then you need to repair/replace the power connector.
