Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook

1 Answer

Battery problem I have an acer aspire 5315-2077 laptop and I have been having problems with the battery. I think there may be a problem with the AC adapter not plugging into the computer all the way because sometimes I have to jiggle it a little before it will show up as charging. But in addition to that, the battery power could be at 100% then all of a sudden the screen will go black and it will beep. then I have to wait about 5 minutes and turn it back on, it goes to system resume and shows 5% or less battery remaining. What could make it go from 100% to 5% so fast?

The classic symptoms of a battery going dead is losing all its power in a very short amount of time. Definitely time for a new one. As for the AC adapter, another classic problem with laptops is that they tend to get loose from being plugged/unplugged so often. This can be fixed but it's a pain and I don't recommend it for the uninitiated.

Acer aspire 4743 not charging but all Okay.....


The solution to your problem lies in one of the following three areas:

1.) Your acer aspire 4743 charger is faulty and is therefore not able to pass power to your laptops battery.

2.) The charging connector on the laptop has come loose from the contacts. Therefore a bad connection.

3.) Your battery is faulty.

I think possibility 2 is the most likely, although you will have to test possibility 3 by removing the battery and plugging in your charger and seeing if the laptop powers on.If it does power on then that rules out possibility 1 and 2 leaving a faulty battery.

My Acer aspire 4935 is not recognizing the AC adapter. When ever I shutdown the system and connects the AC adapter, it works and the charging LED lights up. Once I press the power button to boot the...


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.

My laptop is an Acer Aspire 3003LCi. My problem is that whenever I would charge it, the icon would say that it is only on AC power but not charging. It is only when I took out the battery and put it again...


This is a common problem without any real answer, it happens due to the internal resistance of the battery being detected incorrectly, and this mucks it all up. Taking the battery out actually resets a chip in the battery... yea I know... Sometimes a new battery will "Fix" it, but it's less expensive to remove and replace me thinks?

Try not to install the battery while its on. Power down the laptop then install the battery and power back on the laptop. Hope that helps.

Acer aspire laptop won't charge


Hi,
First of all you have to determine whether it's the battery, charger or the laptop itself.
Remove the battery and boot the laptop on AC power only, if the laptop boots up you can rule out the charger and the laptop, you may need a new battery if that is the case.

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
