    I have plugged my laptop in but nothing happens. It's just a black screen. I did just notice that the battery light is blinking, so, could this be the actual plug in itself?

    No, I haven't tried to pwer the unit with no battery.

    I have an Acer Aspire 5920 and it worked fine until today.  The thing won't turn on, black screen, zero power.  The charger light is a steady green until I plug it in to the laptop then it starts blinking green.  Called Acer and got no where.  Of course, my warranty expired 2 days ago.  Go figure. Has anyone found out for sure what the problem is or what the solution is? I'm guessing the battery is shot.  Any help is appreciated.

    The power adapter is Doing the beeps when it is plugged in. If you listen to the laptop up close it is beeping as well. Has anyone tried to change out the power adapter? I broke the laptop down. I see no damage to the board. Reseated the CPU and heatsink. Debating if i should get another power adapter.

Try pressing on fn+f5 or fn+f6 a couple of times each. Maybe the screen got switched to projector status by mistake.

Try holding down the power on button for a full minute with ac or battery power to the unit. This resets the pc, sometimes.

Accer aspire 5920 laptop no power

try to remove cables and battery , then press and hold the power button for 8 secs. Reinsert the cables and battery back, then turn it on. If no power, then that propels you to contact Acer for repair because power supply won't work on your laptop..

Acer Aspire 5920 won't turn on, the charger lights up, (bright green) until you plug it into the back of the laptop, then the light goes dim and flashes.still no power to the laptop,not even the fan.

Your power supply or regulator in you laptop has gone south. sorry no quick fix for this one. It needs repaired and would include tracking down soldered connections.

sorry to tell you this.
pls rate me 4 stars

Acer Aspire 5920 will not boot at all...

The power button may not work, that is most common in laptops, or you have a short.

Laptop will not turn on

Unplug the AC adapter and remove battery. Hold the power button down for 20-30 seconds. Put the battery back in and reconnect the AC adatpter. This is called a power cycle reset. you may have to do it a couple of times. If that doesn't work email me back and I'll try to assist you.

Notebook not turning on

the adapter plug could be bad
there is no way to test it with what you have there
but you can look at the pin in the laptop where it plugs into
take a toothpic or something, and see if it moves loose
if this pin is loose at all , the connection is broken
a new jack is 5 bucks on ebay , but putting it in is some work

also if the laptop cuts on and off if you touch the plug and jack , then it is probably the jack or inside the plug of adapter

My Acer 5920 will not run plugged in or unplugged

Your power brick itself blinks? If this is the case, you have a short in the cable someplace. Your best option is to purchase another power cable, ideally from BestBuy or Walmart (someplace where you can return it, just in case)

You shouldn't pay more that 40 dollars for this.
