Question about Acer Aspire 3610 Notebook

1 Answer

AC Adapter One day, my charger seemed to have simply become very touchy. It had to be in a particular angle just to charge my computer. After about a week of this, the whole thing ceased to work. The light on the charger comes on, however when plugged into the computer, it doesn't read. It won't turn on, nor does the charging light come on. Do I need a new charger, or is something wrong with the notebook?

Hi Kayla,
It is most likely the power connector on the laptop is faulty and the power adapter is not making electrical connection with the laptop.
You stated that by moving the touchy power plug that you could get it to charge, this is proof that you have a faulty power input connector on the laptop.

Check the power adapter's laptop connector with a multimeter, if there is voltage at the connector then the adapter is OK, the voltage reading should be as stated on the label or slightly higher.
You may be able to get the power connector repaired (it may need resoldering because of a dry joint) or it may need to be replaced.

Why isn't my laptop charging?


Remove the battery and let the computer sit for about 5 minutes. Replace battery and plug in AC cord. Try to start computer. If the computer will not turn on, then chances are that your battery is fully uncharged. Check to ensure that the AC charger is working properly (voltage test with multimeter). If the AC charger is not working, you need to replace it. The laptop should work without a charged battery if the AC adapter is functioning properly.

My dell inspirion ac charger will keep computer running but will not charge my battery. A pop up will inform me that the system doesnt recognize the charger.


it could be a couple things: Are you using the standard 90 Watt ac adapter, or the Travel auto/Air adapter. The travel adapter is only 65 watts can will charge the battery
If using the standard ac adapter, see if you can try another Dell D series adapter and see if you get the same error.
If same with another adapter, the issue is the charging circuit. If another adapter works, then replace the adapter.
If the charging circuit is bad, it will be the chargerboard or if intergrated, the motherboard

Acer Aspire 5520 Power Problems! :(


1. Actually the problem is not with the charger / adapter!

2. The plug-in port / jack of the laptop has become loose.

3. Don't try to work out the charging by adjusting the adapter plug with different angles. It will just damage the plug-in port (the wire inside the port will become loose and unaligned)!

4. Contact the Acer authorised service center for repair / replacement of that plug-in port / jack in the laptop! It'll just cost some bucks!

please rate this advice if it helps....tc! :)

Such issue may appear when Nokia charger adapter CA-146C is used with incompatible charger to charge Nokia N97. Currently compatible chargers for N97 with CA-146C are Nokia Travel Charger AC-4 and Nokia Compact Travel Charger AC-5.

Spangley, just plug it into your PC. If your battery needs charging, it will charge slowly simply while being connected to your computer. Nothing else to do!







Goodluck :)

Gateway MX8738 power adapter problem


Does the DC jack on the laptop wiggle or feel loose?

If that's the case then eventually the jack will go bad will have to be replaced. Most computer shops charger around 60-100 for the repair.

If it's the charger itself then just replace it with an ORIGINAL from eBay.

Hope this info helps and if you need more specifics just let me know.

Seems like power source in back of 1150 inspiron is loose


appears to be a loose connection between the AC adapter and the computer. Inspect the port on the computer where the AC is being connected for any damaged. If available, try using another known-good AC with your computer to isolate if the problem is specific to the AC adapter. If the same thing happens with another AC, the motherboard needs to be replaced. If the warranty of your computer is still active, contact dell and request a replacement for the motherboard
