Question about Acer Aspire 7720-4428 Notebook PC

1 Answer

Battery won't charge right

I have an acer aspire 7720... for the last couple days its been having problems with charging. when it's on the battery works for a few seconds or minutes and then the battery light starts flashing and it stops charging... it charges completely fine when its off and sometimes for no apparent reason it will work while the computer is on but not for long... I've tried unplugging the charger and taking the battery out and putting it back in... it doesn't help for more than a minute

    Tell me what it does when you pull out the adapter cable and re-insert it.



    Also, turn you laptop upside-down and check the plastic where the chargeradapter goes in. Does it look like it might have overheated?

Adapter: see if you can get a duplicate adapter from someone and try theirs. Your PS has a fault which could lead to damage to the Video portion and down the road, burn out the CPU.

I have acer aspire 4741z, when I plug the battery charger, it says plugged in, not charging (6% available). how can I fix this problem? thanks a lot


Ifthe laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.

My acer aspire 7720 wont come on. i tried it without the battery just the charger but nothing. i plug the charger with the battery and it charges the battery but wont turn on.


It sounds as though you have a problem with the power button itself, this is on a small cicuit board beneath the top panel where the button is situated, these boards are not too expensive and eay to change providing you are competant with a screwdriver. If not I would recommend that you get a technician to take a look.

Acer 7720 will turn on and work for about 5 mins and shut down


In most cases I have found that this problem stems from a bad charger not delivering the proper amount of voltage. Therefore the battery doesn't ever really get a full charge even though the power indicator may say it does. I would get a multi-meter and check the voltage at the charger tip and see if the power is fluctuating. Be careful regardless, a bad power unit may spike and terminate your motherboard.

Acer aspire 7720 start up problems


You need to try to isolate the problem. Try connecting an external monitor to your laptop. Press function screen keys. If you have a picture on your external monitor then you have a video problem - most likely an inverter, although you may need a new screen, unlikely but possible.

If you have no picture then you have a system problem. Disconnect the battery and AC adapter. Remove the memory and reseat. Repower your laptop and see what happens.

Charger is no longer working


Oh, believe it or not. My computer use to do the same thing all the time. Just take the prongs on the plugin and bend them outwards slowly. This will make a tighter fit in the outlet.

New notebook w/new battery. Battery doesn't seem to charge even after machine is on for many hours.


Most laptops need 24 hours when their battery is first charged - but this is not normal it should last longer than that on batteries- i reccomend charging it for 24hrs minimum with it off then get back to me if that didnt fix the problem

Hope i could help
