Hi,

My problem is , it do not turn on. I checked the battery and the Ac adapters they are working fine. also i try to follow the acer instruction like pressing power button 20 second like option, still it do not work.

When i plug and give the power to laptop , i can see that the LED bulb in the ac adapter start to blink , where it should be steady. But i check the ac adapter with anther computer it is working fine. Even the battery is working fine.

Can some body please tell me whats wrong with this laptop.

    Yes... I did the Solution #1 first as Acer tech support suggested.
    But still the issue remains.

    The connector at the back is is in good condition. It isn't loose and it is working fine i think. BUt once i gave the power , the LED in the AC adapter started to blink like there is a short circuit..

    I tried with solution 2 and still my laptop do not works. Its like its dead. I talk few technical people they told me that this could be my mother board problem. Still trying to solve this problem.

    Is the connector in the back loose when you plug the AC adapter in? Can you wiggle it at all? (Don't force it if you can't, it's a good thing if it's nice and firm)

This probleme is common among acer 5920, the probleme is with the motherboard that's of bad quality and workmanship. Acer should be ashamed to sell a PC with a faulty motherboard and should compensate all 5920's owners or replace with a better motherboard. 1000's if not millions are having the same probleme wich tell to anyone with a brain that Acer 5920 is a scam. good luck. x

Same problem here, the blinking power led shows a short circuit. Took everything apart looking for a faulty capacitor or anything that would be obvious but no luck. Some googling showed me that thousands of people out there suffer from the same fried motherboard issue. Replacement is far more expensive than I thought.

I work as an IT manager and unfortunately I suggested acer notebooks to many people I know. That will change.

Shame on them..

I have run into this problem with ore than one Acer 5920. Something on the motherboard has shorted and drains the adapter of it's power. so far, I've not found any other recourse but to change the motherboard.

I have encountered the same issue and have concluded that i have a bad power switch or bad motherborad. to solve the problem i press any key on the computer's mouse and the computers turns back on---this resets the bios' clock but solves the problem.

do you also have problems with your USBs? it turns very slow?

Take out the battery, wait thirty seconds, replace it try again. Take out the RAM replace it try again. If this does not work you might need an expert to physically handle it to diagnose the problem.

Acer Aspire 4330 battery pack


Well .. What is your "warranty" from tiger on this unit? I would consider contacting them first to see if they would send you a replacement. If not there are "cooling" pads such as this that you can use to help keep it a bit cooler.

I bought a reconditioned Acer Aspire 4330 from Tiger Direct. After 30 minutes of being plugged in, the battery pack is really HOT! Any suggestions?


the battery or the power unit?
if the battery is getting hot i suggest a cooling mat/stand for the laptop.
if the power unit is getting hot you may want to get it checked or replaced.

Problem power chord


Hi,
The problem that you Actually Have, Is that the Mains In DC Jack on the Motherboard. Has worked Loose.
You need this replacing A.S.A.P as it,s burning your power packs out, it,s also possibly arcing across the motherboard.
If you look on the internets largest Auction Site :) services are offered to repair these. Usually varying From £40-$80. Plus, Dependant on sending the complete laptop, or just Motherboard.
Alternatively A Computer repair centre. I,d estimated £100-$200 Maximum. But worth Doing to save your Motherboard And future power pack purchases.
