The Acer 3100 Series Laptop battery on light burns continously

When I recharge the battery the battery light stays on all the time. The next time I open the PC to use it the battery is dead. Is there a cut off switch on this computer?

That battery is exhausted. Best not even leave it in the laptop ever. As all this will do is to create more heat and overload the power system. Best to remove it and hang on to it until you get a new one.

Troubleshoot battery


If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Acer aspire laptop suddenly shut off and cannot turn back on


try it without the battery on the laptop. if it boots and stays on, put the battery back on and see what happens. If the problem persists, replace the battery. Acer will replace it free if you are still in warranty

My Travelmate 290 series is not working...


Try taking the memory out and then put it back in making sure it seated correctly then start using AC power lead it's probably caused by letting the battery get too low before recharging.Use a start up disc to get it going if you have to. Good luck

Hello rijotomas,
First you can try to pull the battery out and unplug the power adapter for a minute. Then plug the laptop back in without the battery. Then try to turn it back on.

Acer Battery chaging problems


Seems like a old problem, but does the laptop work without a battery? possibly the powerjack on the computer is loose.

if you have already solved this problem do share with the world how you solved it.

Acer Aspire 3100 series. Display screen getting dark


This is such a user error. I had the same problem on my 3100-1718. It was as simple as holding down the Fn key and using the left and right arrow keys to change the brightness... I am a goofball for ever letting this stay dark for a month !
