I have a brand new Acer Aspire laptop and a powercord from another computer that I want to use it with. The battery says 11.1V and the powercord has an output of 15-24V. Does this mean the powercord is too strong for my laptop or is it safe to use?

If it is a Desktop Computer (case) you will need a new power supply or a different one to test if that is really the problem.
on a laptop, try holding the power button for ~40secs with all power diconnected (no battery and no powercord).
then re-plug the powercord to see if it will turn on. Try a different powercord if it still wont turn on, or have it tested at an electronics store.
The replacement doesn't have to be an Acer. I have seen after market replacements, that work better than the original battery.
When you buy a new battery, you should consider looking at the number of mAh. It is written on the battery. This number indicates the time before complete discharge.
I have seen original Acer batteries that were 2200mAh, while replacements were 4400mAh. So if the 2200mAh gives you 3 hours of working time before recharging, the 4400 could give you twice as much, so nearly 6 hours.
I have used the new Forza brand replacement batteries on a Acer Aspire One, and I am very glad with the results. I am not sure if they have the model you are looking for. if they have it, you should get one.
Either you have a bad ac adapter(powercord) or the power jack where you plug it in on the laptop is bad.The power board where the button you push is located could also be bad.Start with trying another ac adapter first.
There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power
adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop,
remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop &
see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter
with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case
we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
If this did not work, try also disassembling the laptop & make sure
that all main components are seated properly. Also make sure that all
ribbon cables interconnecting the various components of the laptop are
It seem to me that the power input system is loose inside. You sould let a professional change it(if it's worth it). Or try to find a positin for the cable in witch it charges, then put some ducktape on it to stabilize it. It worked for me with my old laptop(as lond as U don't move it u should be fine:) Good luck.
This is most likely a defect in the part of the laptop that uses the battery. You could try a new battery but most likely the laptop is in need of repair. If it is new you can contact acer and have it serviced under warranty. if you need further assistance let me know. Also please take a moment to accept and rate my solution. Thank you, lee
I am sorry to say you maybe buy a wrong replacement battery that cann't compatible with the original laptop battery pack at all,this laptop replacement battery is still rare in the market now.Wish this page will help you anyway. http://www.power-battery.co.uk
The battery is dead and/or your powersupply isn't working properly, or your memory is loose. first open the little door on the back where the ram is at and reseat it, then try to power it on, if that doesn't work take it to a professional nad have them test the power supply, if it tests ok, see if it is under acer warranty (acer.com) if it is send it in, if it isn't goto tigerdirect.com and buy a new one for around 300.00 don't waste any money on that computer.
