Most likely you shorted your power plug on *********** board I would think green dust is burned residue. Smell where you plug your ac plug to and see if it smells like burnt plastic?

How do i fix an Acer aspire 4730z that will not charge the battery and has the charge light no longer comes on, is the motherboard bad?


Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.

You may have a DC Jack issue and needs to be replaced. Common with Acer models using the yellow DC jacks.

And since the battery will not charge, it is most likely a component issue. Shorted MOSFET in the charge section.

Acer aspire 3610 power lead transformer green light is on before plugging into laptop then goes out when plugged in.acer has nothing working, totaly dead any ideas?


If the power LED is lit before connecting to your laptop and then goes out as soon as you connect to your laptop, then you either have a short circuit in the power supply module of your laptop, or you battery is causing the fault.

Remove the battery and try again. If it powers up the battery needs replacing. If the problem is still the same then you need someone to look at the power supply module in the laptop

Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook will not power on


disconnect the battery from the laptop and only hook up the ac adaptor. Turn the laptop on and if it still cuts off after 5 seconds then reseat the memory back into its slots. Also make sure your air vents are not clogged with dirt or dust as lack or air flow can cause the laptop to shut off. If that doesn't do it then take out the hard drive and dvd drive and turn on the laptop. If the laptop still cuts off then it has to be a faulty motherboard at that point which means to much voltage is going thru and the components on the motherboard are not regulating it properly.

You could try another battery if you have on(they only last for so many charges) or your charger could be bad. Try plugging it in to another outlet. Good Luck
