Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

Acer aspire 5100 won't stay on when booting on battery

I have an Acer Aspire 5100 laptop, have regularly drained and recharged the battery once a month. The battery shows fully charged and the battery led on the front of the laptop is on solid. When I try to boot up on battery, it begins to boot up but shuts down after a few seconds. Also, if I boot up with the AC adaptor and am up and running, any attempt to unplug either the input jack from the laptop or the plug from the power bar causes the laptop to shut down after a few seconds.

Replace the battery. Batteries usually only last about two years and it sounds like it just cant hold any more juice. To find a battery go to google.com and type in the model of computer and push search. Sorry for the news but its an easy fix

Remove the main battery, it is probably loading the power supply down. If your computer starts up, replace the rechargeable battery.

My Acer Aspire 5100 wont start up correctly


Try removing the battery and connecting the AC adapter then see if it boots up.
Reinstall the battery and keep the AC adapter connected and see if it boots up, if so leave it charge the battery for several hours.
If none of these work, get a replacement as there is a more segnificant problem.
I hope this helps.
Good Luck.

If you are able, when the pc is booting up keep pressing F8, this will take you to safe mode and not allow the graphics driver to run. When in the safe mode options, select either Last known good configuration or start windows in safe mode. Last known good configuration should find the last good system settings, when it reboots. Start windows in safe mode allows you to go into windows using the administartor account, and then you should select system restore and restore back to the day before or just before you updated the graphics driver.
