    I did all the updates prepost and as mentioned in the original post, battery was fully charged when cord get unplugged. the tablet goes in sleep mode and will not come out of sleep mode until cord is plugged back in to ac power. at this point the tablet comes on by depressing of the power switch and then shuts down completely and i would have to restart tablet.

There are two possible problems:

1. Software (Video Driver)
2. Battery

With regards to the software issue, you just need to update the video firmware or driver. Chances are, your acer is programmed to power savings mode when it's removed from the plug and when it changes the setting to power saving mode, the driver cannot support it because it's outdated that's why it goes off.

2nd Possible reason is your battery going dead. If that's the case, then you need to replace the battery.

I hope this helps.

Acer Aspire One BIOS Recovery The AA1 has a built-in BIOS recovery routine, making it possible to flash the BIOS even if the system doesn't boot anymore. It's only meant for emergencies and may void your warranty, so use at your own risk.

Follow every step carefully!

First format an USB stick with FAT.

Download the latest BIOS, and put both FLASHIT.EXE and the BIOS file in the root directory of the stick. Rename the BIOS file to ZG5IA32.FD, that's important. Do not remove the USB stick.

Turn the AA1 off, make sure both battery and AC adapter are connected. Press Fn+Esc, keep it pressed and press the power button to turn the AA1 on. Release Fn+Esc after a few seconds, the power button will be blinking. Press the power button once. The AA1 will now initiate the BIOS flash, do not interrupt it under any circumstances. After a while the power button will stop blinking, and the AA1 will reboot shortly after. Wait patiently.

The BIOS has been flashed and all settings reset to default.

If for some reason you made a mistake during the procedure and it doesn't reboot by itself wait 5 minutes before turning it off, just to be safe that it isn't still flashing the BIOS.

Download WIN98BOOT.ZIP and HPUSBFORMATTER from the internet normal bootable like a diskette won't work with a usb stick
I had mine 2 months it's a common problem with the notebook.
The onely thing that you have to do is download these programs with someone with a internet connection.

Good luck

Well you can try a system restore.

1.) start
2.) programs / accessories / system tools
3.) system restore

follow the on screen instructions too restore the computer to a few days before it started having problems.

Chances are that the battery is shot if system restore fails.

SOURCE: Acer aspire one, won't wake up from sleep mode, screen blank

I'm having the same problem, but I don't want to have to turn off my computer EVERY time it does this. (I have not been able to shut down the laptop normally because it goes into sleep every time.) I've heard that after 3 hours it builds up an eletrical charge and you have to take the battery out, but I havn't had it on for 3 hours at a time.

SOURCE: My Acer aspire 4935 is

Problem description:The battery charges only when the laptop turned off. The battery charge LED lights up as normal and the battery gets charged to 100% while the laptop is off.
When the laptop is turned on, the battery charge LED goes off even if the adapter is still plugged in.
Possible cause:1. AC power adapter failure.
2. Battery failure.
3. Broken/loose power jack.
4. Motherboard failure.
Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution:1. This problem could be related to a faulty AC power adapter. It's possible that the AC adapter doesn't provide enough power when plugged into the laptop. To find out if this is your problem, you'll have to test the laptop with another working adapter.Replace the adapter if needed.

2. There is a slight chance that you have bad battery. Test the laptop with a know good battery and replace the faulty one if needed.

3. The battery charge problem could be related to the power jack. Maybe the jack is broken or not making good contact with the motherboard. It is necessary to remove the motherboard and take a closer look at the power jack. Resolder or replace the jack if needed.

4. If the power jack is in a good working shape and new power adapter with battery do not fix the problem, most likely you have a faulty motherboard. Replace the motherboard if needed.

What would be a reason for my ACER Iconia A1-810 tablet not powering on with a full charge?


If it doesn't turn on with a charged battery, you may have a broken logic board. If you're out of warranty, somebody has to open the device and replace the logic board. The part is available on ebay. On youtube you will find a guide on how to disassemble an Acer tablet. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you. If you want to pay to have somebody do it for you there are third party Acer Tablet Repair Services.

My tablet iconia wont start


There should be a tiny reset button or pinhole (use a straightened out paper clip). If reset button/hole itself does not work, try pressing it while holding down the power button at same time. Otherwise, it sounds like you have a battery/charging issue (try another charger cord if available).

Try to connect charger and power on tablet by pressing power button during 5/10 seconds.

If that doesn't work, since it's a new device, I would recommend you use the service of ACER.
