Hello there:
try removing the battery from the computer and turning on the computer to see if the power cord works correctly if it does inspect the battery and clean the terminals on the battery and computer and put the battery back in while it is still on now you should see the battery show up on the taskbar if not right click anywhere on the desktop and go to properties and than go to than go to screensaver than look towards the bottom and you will see power click on it and you should see the options for the battery ok sorry this was so long but i needed to explain it in full

SOURCE: 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.



Regards.

SOURCE: Battery will not charge on netbook

Sounds like it may be an internal problem with the charge system on the laptop, if you can run the laptop with the AC cord but it will not charge, I suspect the charge module is bad.
May have to return it for repair.

I guess your charger has very low power (low wattage). That is why it charges the battery when the laptop is off. But as soon as the laptop is on, the charger can't keep up with the power dreained by keeping the laptop on and eventually the battery runs outr of juice.
According to the user's manual (http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/manuals/acer/0000/userguides/AS5600_3680_UG.pdf)
I suggest you get a charger with at least 90 W.

Hi,
Laptop battery notification is not accurate but approximate. The remaining battery usage is calculated approximately and then notified to the user. If your battery's life is more than a year, then the calculation goes on decreasing. It cannot be rectified unless you go for a new battery. But still you can tweak the battery life by,
1. Switch of the wireless adaptor when not in use.
2. Decrease the screen brightness.
3. Configure your power plan in control panel to minimal power usage mode while on battery.
4. The notification limit for battery low can be custom configured in the control panel. set it to 30 % and this will prevent your laptop to dye without power as your battery power drains faster below 31%
I hope this is helpful to understand the logic behind this.

I have an Acer Aspire one model zg5- Power cord


Here is another thing you can try. Unplug the power cord, and then remove the battery. Press the "Start" button and hold for 5 seconds. Replace the battery back into the computer and plug in the power cord. Start the machine and see if the low battery message still comes up. Sometimes the program that monitors the battery status gets confused. Doing the above should straighten it out. The Acer should start up and the AC power light should be lit. Look down in your task bar for the battery Icon or go to Battery Status in Control Panel and see if it shows that the battery is charging. Even newer batteries can go bad (rare) but if this is the case and a cell has shorted out in the battery, then your only recourse is exchange under warranty.

Laptop battery won't charge - Acer Aspire 4520


Since is shows it as charging then your power cable should be working. So it looks like a battery issue but batteries just don't die unless a cell inside dies then they will stop working. Try taking the battery off and making sure that the connections are clean then put it back in. If that doesn't work give the battery a good full charge then bring the battery and laptop back to where you bought it and get them to test the battery to see if a cell died.
