Cant power up acer aspire 3690 laptop

I plugged in my flip video recorder to the side USB port to charge it and when I came back my laptop shutoff. When I try to power it on again the green light on the power key comes on for one second and shuts back off. I have taken out the battery and disconnected the power cord and tryed again but still the same problem. Is there anything else I can do or is it shot?

Did you try booting with just the power cord in (battery and all other devices disconnected) if it boots then put in battery and make sure its charged. then try the video recorder wit out any other devices connected

I would like to download a driver for my Acer aspire 3690 laptop because i cant get online. how to do this?I'm using another computer to do the download.


Navigate to Acer's website. Select support and drivers. It will then prompt you for your computers model number or make, and operating system version. From there, you will be able to download the drivers you need. Save them to a USB drive, and transfer them onto your notebook.

The driver for your laptops wireless card will be categorized under "Network".

Fan for my acer 3690 spins, green light is on but no display show


Look to See If Your Hard Drive/Data Indicator Light is on and blinking (or solid)..
You need to try and hook up a desktop monitor to the laptops serial port.. Reboot with the External Screen Plugged Into The Laptop.. If You See Windows Booting From The External Monitor - Then You Have A Faulty Screen, or possibly a faulty Display Cable.. Most Likely The Screen Has Failed Though... Also, Hold The Screen Up To A Bright Light while its powered on, You Might have just lost the backlight and have a display still, It will be REAL faint but holding it up to a light and looking to see if you can see Windows Running..

If No Display on the External Monitor When Connected To The Laptop, Then You Have GPU/Graphics Failure, Due To Thermal Damage.. This Is A Motherboard Issue Because The Chips Are Integrated.. A ReBake/ReFlow Of The Chips Will Get Your Video Back, Or Replacing The Motherboard.....

I have an acer aspire 3690, and when I plug the power cord in to the laptop, the battery does not charge any more. What is wrong with it?


It one of two things wrong here,

1) have your replace the battery yet?

2) Does your AC cord work properly?

Check that and let me know.

Camera software corrupted??


I had the same problem with my flip mino HD. Here are the steps I took to fix it.

1. Adjust the power options on your laptop to ensure it does not sleep/hiberate ever.
2. Reset the camcorder by inserting a paperclip into the hole in the tripod mount. Hold the paperclip in there for about seven seconds.
3. Then immediately plug the flip into the cpu.
4. You may not see anything besides the little blinking white light on the USB arm for a while (about 30 minutes maybe) but leave it in.
5. Eventually it should spring to life and show the recharging battery on the little screen (the Flip Share program may start too.)
6. Leave it charging until the little white light stops flashing - full charge about 3 hours.
7. You can then remove the flip and change the power settings back to normal.

Dc jack broken


You cannot charge fhe laptop via the USB port, you can charge a USB device from the USB port but not the other wat around.
You can get the power connect on the laptop repaired and then it will power the laptop and charge the battery.

Bluetooth


Unless the computer has bluetooth buit in (which i can garauntee it does not) you need a bluetooth adapter which plugs into your usb port and installs the driver itself.

Cd drive/ USB/ reinstall XP


Nifty little IDE to laptop ide adapters on ebay for under $10 delivered..
remove laptop HD.. use adapter, plug into desktop as second drive.
Load up XP install to a folder.. use a decent file copier so you get hidden files. try filesync 2.xx (look for it),
Back into the laptop, try it..

Only other thing would be LEGACY USB SUPPORT in the bios and an external usb drive... Hopefully your usb problem is XP related and not hardware related..

USB software not installing?


USB ports on laptops are not always "powered" ports they are often "Low power" Usb ports, devices like external HDDs and webcams tend to draw too high a current to work properly on these Low power ports.

A way around this is to get a small "Powered" USB hub this is a Usb hub which has it's own plug in power supply (this is essential) you plug your devices into this and the hub into the low power USB socket. this means that the power is being drawn from the Powered hub instead of your laptop's ports.

I have come across this many times, and this small inconvenience is the only way around this.

Good luck
