If your laptop computer runs normally on your acer aspire one zg5 ac adapter, but the battery won't charge, please try the following troubleshooting steps:

1) Remove the battery from the system.

2) Look at the connectors in the bay and on the battery for signs of physical damage.

3) Check the battery charge by pressing the status button or image on the battery near the LED's. Note: The lights indicate the current amount of charge on the battery. If all the LED's come on when you press on the butto, the battery is fully charged. If fewer lights are lit, then the battery is partially charged. If any lights flashm or blinkm there could be a problem with the battery.

4) Reinsert the battery; puch until it locks into place and the latch snaps back to the locked position.

SOURCE: Need help for Acer Aspire ONE MODEL # ZG5 screen does not work

If you are sure the computer is running then connect an external monitor to the laptop. You will have to select the external using your Function keys FN + F7 or F8. If you can now see your machine on the external monitor then you know it's the screen portion of your laptop that is faulty. If this does not work then the sounds you are hereing are probably just the fan and the hard drive spinning. These are not an indication that the computer is working. All in all, I would say that the laptop needs to see a pro.

SOURCE: acer aspire one model zg5 battery won't charge

I have exactly the same problem and am searching at the same time as you. I think you are wrong. I think the 150 is for the larger screen model. I think we need the 110.

I think it's this one that i found at acer-euro

ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/netbook/aspire_one_110/bios/v.3309.zip

but I'm afraid to use it (which is not to say I know how). Somthing about putting it onto a USB drive and running scripts. At least that's what they do with this problem on a 150

SOURCE: Got new battery for acer aspire 6920. not charging

You ordered the wrong battery, theres two types, your original would have been 11.1v if you check the new one it will be 14.8v. They are not compatable.

My zg5 laptop battery will not power my laptop.battery is new. fully charged.


Hi John,

For the sake of clarity: the battery which will not charge/power your Acer Aspire One Netbook is the original battery that came with the Acer, is this correct?
Assuming that the answer is Yes then replacement with a NON Acer, universal battery is the only solution.
Reputable internet shops, such as Amazon, have these at around $50...
DANGER; Due to the recall of thousands of Acer (HP and others) batteries with a possible fire hazard please dispose of promptly and properly.
Best Buy has a Recycle program:

Thanks!

When i remove the charger from my pc(acer aspire one zg5) the notebook just shut down, i was told that the battery is deadand must be replaced, so i want to ask if there is any way i can fix it again...


the problem you have can be one of two. 1 the battery is dead and needs replacing to use it without the charger plugged in 2 the charging circuit in your laptop has failed and will not charge the battery As the laptop works when plugged in then I would guess it's the battery. If the battery is dead, the only way you can repair it is to open the battery case and replace the individual cells which can be dangerous if you don't know how to handle the cells properly. I would recommend buying a new battery before trying to repair it if you really need one.

Help on extending the battery life of my acer aspire one!


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, until they won't charge up at all.
The only solution is a new battery.

Aspire zg5 battery won't charge


Memory effect, also known as lazy battery effect or battery memory, is an effect observed in nickel cadmium rechargeable batteries that causes them to hold less charge. It describes one very specific situation in which certain NiCd batteries gradually lose their maximum energy capacity if they are repeatedly recharged after being only partially discharged. The battery appears to "remember" the smaller capacity.

This may be why.

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.
