Question about Acer Computers & Internet
I dont have the battery for my laptop, but its worked fine being plugged in. But lately when i start it up it goes just past the start up and then it just turns off.
Are you getting juice out of the power cord? You could use a multimeter to see that you are
getting the rated power out of the brick. Sometimes it is as simple as
a plug not making good contact.Find a voltmeter and test if the adapter puts out any power at all. Make
sure the RAM is properly seated, unplug every peripheral (even the
cd/dvdrom drive), power it up on direct electric power. Check if you can get
into the BIOS (F2, or F10, or delete, or some random key depending on
the manufacturer, that you press when you power up).
Most laptops have a little light showing that they are recharging when plugged in properly. Is there a green LED light? Alternatively, I had an old laptop where the brick had a removable power cord and one of the prongs in the adapter where the power cord plugged into the brick would sometimes get pushed in and fail to make contact. Once I had that plugged in properly, I never unplugged it again.
If it fails when trying to boot windows, you could always try to download and burn an ubuntu live-cd and boot from the CD to see if the problem is really your software.
