When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

It won't charge and the power and batter light are all blinking


The first steps you could apply are-

1. Check the plug points. Test some other charger on the same plug point. If it's working, then go for the next step.

2. Use an alternate acer aspire 3000 charger. If you have a friend with the same laptop / same charging adaptor, borrow it and see whether the laptop is being charged from that. Or you could go to an electronics shop and see whether they have a spare charger just for checking purposes. If no adapter works, then it's not the adapter's fault, it's the fault of the laptop charging port.

3. To be sure, you could attach your adapter to an extension cable (a spike guard would be suitable. It prevents sudden peaks in current, thereby protecting your laptop from damage) . If it doesn't charge still, it's a fault within the laptop.

To check the charging port within the laptop, you'll have to go to a hardware specialist (assuming that like me, you're not adept at hardware!) . The specialist should guide you properly.

If the laptop is within the warranty period, you could try the service centre. Hope I've helped :)

I have acer aspire 5551 , my laptop battery charges fine but it stops on 91% and does not go further :( , what is the possible solution for it ?


Hi, Your battery needs to be calibrated, what you will need to do is charge the battery fully or until it can not charge more, drain the battery completely then recharge to full, doing so while letting your computer recognise and mark the full point and the empty point... the process depends on the version of windows you have and also if you have a bundled tool or a program that does this for you, search your laptop installed programs or check in your power options. vista is the only operating system I am aware of that does not have a built in tool, others should have it, just follow the tool instructions and you should be all set, if you can not find the tool or have vista let me know... Best of Luck

I have an aser aspire 5738Z laptop. everything work ok but only battery not charging. battery is not present. what is the problem?


Try another working battery in the laptop, this will tell you if the original battery is bad or if the working one won't charge then you know at that point that no battery is being charged.

At that point you can try another AC Adapter but more then likely if a new battery doesn't resolve the issue then its a problem with the motherboard not putting out the proper current for it to charge the battery.

You can always go into the control panel into the power options and force the battery icon to show up in the taskbar and if you see a red x on it then that means the battery isn't being detected and hopefully trying another battery will solve the issue.

My Acer Aspire 5735z battery won't charge!


Your adapter port might have been improperly adjusted. Jiggle the cord around in there while it's plugged in to see if the plugged in light comes on. If it does then that's your problem. You can prob things under it to keep it at that point for a quick fix but I'd recommend a local computer shop for repairs.

Laptop not chrging even with a good harger.and keeps shuttn down


you could be correct about it being the pin at the charging point. what you need to do is to phone up the company who make your laptop and tell them the problem. they might then say that the laptop might have to be taken away so that they can change the charging point in your laptop and then it should be fine.

Acer Aspire 1640 power problem


Will the unit work without the battery? The new Lithium Ion batteries can be overcharged and then cause all kinds of strange problems. Take the battery to a reputable electronics shop or Batteries Plus and have them run a voltage and current test. The current test being the most revealing. If either of these is higher than the level printed on the battery, dispose of it. Also, check ACER's web site for battery problems. All the computer manufacturers have had battery problems.

Good Luck
