    I have the same problem aswell. Basicly i brought my laptop over a year ago, and the charger that came with it was absolutely fine until something happened to the wire inside the charger. I had to buy a replacement adapter, but this new adapter would only charge my laptop up to 80% and then the on/off button would start flashing orange. The week after that, my laptop would only charge up to 40% until the light started to flash again. I told the guy that sold this adapter to me and he said he'll give me another one. I recieved this new charger 2 days ago and now it only charges up to 25%. I tried to use the power savering plan but it made no difference at all. I even tried everything that acer advised me to do to save my power, but this made no difference at all. Could you please help me?

    thank you

    from Saira

    It's either the battery or the AC adapter, and you don't provide enough information to figure out which.

The problem is you are buying third party adapters and this is causing the problem. Buy the original charger because although the third party adapter might have same wattage or voltage rating it surely has diffrent amp rating and this causes the overheating also of the charger.

SOURCE: how to downgrade acer aspire 5720 vista to xp

Rashidbb, I would find the drivers first, (this may be difficult), and have them ready to install before downgrading to XP. This way you wont have to look around for drivers on a machine that doesnt function 100%

SOURCE: Acer Aspire 5720-6438 recovery cd/driver cd

if you need drivers, you can download it from
for recovery cd, i don't think acer have it online, you need to order it from them.

FYI, if you haven't delete the partition in your hdd, you can use alt+f10 to re-install your Operating system and after that, you can create your own recovery cd.

Hi I have a acer aspire 5720 laptop had it about 1 year the orange light on the front which shows battery charging started to flash and when I moved the charger wire it flashes on and off I bought another...

Usually when you see this flashinf indicator it is a failing battery. IT maybe that some of the cells in the battery are failing and refusing to accept a charge, in that case the battery will actually damage the charger.

Battery not detected

Either both batteries are dead or your battery charging system in the computer is dead. Best thing is to try yet another battery or try your batteries in somebody elses laptop.
