    I checked the battery and no contacts are touching from what I could see, I also checked the laptop terminals and same thing no problem there

  • jrobertb557 Jan 12, 2009

    I tried that and still nothing was hoping it was only the battery, not sure what else could be wrong with it,

    It is doubtful that a dead battery is causing the machine to start. Did you check for any shorts on the battery terminals?

Try to remove the battery completely and boot the computer. If it boots with no battery then you know its time for a new one

    Not too sure why you rated me with an I/A as we still were walking through the trouble shooting steps. But it was way inapropriate hope you can fix this on your own

I have lost my lead to my acer laptop aspire5100 series model number BL51 19v .474Acan you help.I am a mature age person thanking you Pat


There are two solutions to this problem, Pat.

One is to buy the correct AC adapter (Charger) for the laptop.
Two is to buy an aftermarket AC adapter that will work for your laptop, but will also work for many other laptops.

1) http://www.usbphoneworld.com/acer-adapter-19342-65w-lc-adt01-aspire-5520-ac-acer-aspire-5100-ac-adapter.html?CAWELAID=950033775

The above is from a quick search. Your search may be better. Just put Acer Aspire 5100 charger, in your search box.

2) From another quick search,

http://www.atbatt.com/laptop-chargers/b/acer/m/aspire-5100.asp?utm_source=google&utm_medium=ppc&utm_keyword=Acer+Aspire+5100+Charger&utm_content=NAC-X90-22&utm_campaign=google0&gclid=CLeDr7qIlqsCFQ9S7Aodvn_TXA

Would also like to commend you for your intelligence.
Stating the Voltage, 19V, and the Amperage, 4.74A ,is a really intelligent thing to do.

(The charger MUST have 19 Volts for the Voltage. The Amperage (Amp's, or A), can be more)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

WILL NOT CHARGE OR POWER ON


Normal 0 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.

My Acer Aspire 5100 wont start up correctly


Try removing the battery and connecting the AC adapter then see if it boots up.
Reinstall the battery and keep the AC adapter connected and see if it boots up, if so leave it charge the battery for several hours.
If none of these work, get a replacement as there is a more segnificant problem.
I hope this helps.
Good Luck.

Acer aspire 5100 won't stay on when booting on battery


replace the battery. Batteries usually only last about two years and it sounds like it just cant hold any more juice. To find a battery go to google.com and type in the model of computer and push search. Sorry for the news but its an easy fix
