Acre Aspire -- 3000 series notebook -- Power adapter issue

Have an Aspire 3003. Computer does not seem to recognize the power adapter all of the time when it is plugged into wall (and as a result it does not charge batt). I've already purchased both a new adapter and batt with no luck on solving the problem. Any ideas?

It's a loose connection on the motherboard. The power connector on the motherboard will need to be re-soldered. You really don't need a new motherboard. You need to find a good Technician that can do this. I use to do this at my old job. We charged $65. Some places will charge up to $90 or so.

Well, my Aspire One d260 will not get power from the adapter. Not only will not charge the battery, but it does not recognize when I plug in the adapter. In other words, if I were to take the battery out...

Hi there,
This issue is going on quite a lot but It seems to me that currently there is no choice but to try a known good working adapter. Because the BIOS wont update or Flush(if you would install the same version) without the AC adapter.
Faced a lot of this issues with DELL laptops so hopefully the replacement adapter would work.

Power supply cut off

Is the connection loose? If so, that means that your DC Jack will need to replaced or resoldered. Unfortunately, there is no other way to connect a power adapter. You will have to get it replaced. We see this in my shop all the time, unfortunately.

Hi please help me with my acer 3003 wont boot

try to power up with power cord only and see if it works. If no lights turn on than your motherboard is dead. If it turns on and nothing happens make sure there is memory installed(RAM). If it turns on and you see windows screen than it shuts off than your operating system needs to be installed again. Also, you can try booting in safe mode by hitting f8 when you initially start your computer and see if it stays on and if it does you have a virus most likely. Good luck.

Completely dead

Check the power adapter connection or the socket. Recently my power adapter socket gave me the same problem. When I check from the adapter using voltmeter it's seems to be working.

But when i plugged it in the laptop, nothing happens. So I google around for help and found this tutorial after following the suggestions I managed to revive my notebook.

Laptop will not power up

Try removing the battery..then attempt a power up. make sure there are no USB devices connected as well. Take some time, it happened to me, it was caused by a non USB compliant lamp! The machine would not start at all.
