Question about Acer Aspire 5253

1 Answer

No power. I went to the computer store and they used their own plug to override the battery. They also tried main battery replacement. Both items did not work to power up my computer. Before it went bad......I had a week of it telling me that my battery did not hold a charge very well. Also, whenever I plugged power cord into machine or took it out.....many times it would show static on screen until I re-started computer. Is there another battery I am needing to replace? Or could it be even something else?

    you will have to send it in for service. Sorry. :(

  • Seanzilla Jan 17, 2013

    Sometimes this can be an issue with the AC jack, and where it connect inside on the board. In some cases, due to repeated tension on the ac adapter line, the jack wiggles and breaks contact with the board that it is soldered to. The simplist way to fix is to open the computer, and find the jack. Apply solder (carefully) to reconnect well with board.

Why after replacing the LCD in my laptop, the computer will not power up?


Replacing LCD is a big job, try to dissasemble your laptop again and check ALL CONNECTIONS are they plugged in and secured properly. If it is not static damage to the main board (worst case scenario, but it could be anything else), I would concentrate on connections first.

What does the internal 601 Battery do, and how to replace it


Do you use your power off the mains at all (not plugged in) It will be the main battery for the laptop.

If you always leave your laptop plugged in there isn't much point in getting a new battery. Perhaps you can turn off the error message on startup?

My acer aspire 7736G was working fine, it's about 2.5 years old, and is used mainly with the power cord plugged in. When using it the other day the computer just went dead on me. I took the batter


You have reached the end life of the battery pack. The battery must have some minimum charge to have computer function even with the AC power pack connected. So I suggest you replace the battery pack as a solution. Any local Radio Shack store can test this battery I am told free of charge.

Computer start but monitor goes in power safe mode . What can I do ?


Typically, this happens on a computer which is a few years old, since its batteries will have run out after such a long time.

The motherboard battery is used to store various settings, such as date and time, when the mains power is off. When your computer detects an empty battery, it goes into a low-power mode.

The solution is to replace the button-cell battery on the motherboard of your computer:

  • open the case of your computer;
  • visually locate the motherboard (the main electronic circuit board) of your computer;
  • visually scan the motherboard for a button-cell battery (it looks like a digital watch battery, but a bit larger);
  • remove this motherboard battery from your computer;
  • restart your computer: it should now power up normally (you may get some warning messages during the start-up sequence, but ignore them);
  • set the date and time of your computer using the "Date and Time" control panel;
  • you can now use your computer normally, but you will lose date and time settings when you disconnect the computer power cord, since there is no motherboard battery present to store them;
  • take the motherboard battery to an electronics store and get a replacement;
  • install the new battery in your computer;
  • restart your computer, and set the date and time again; the settings will now be saved using motherboard battery power.

1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
4. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

Remove the battery and mains adaptor. Press and hold the power button for a few seconds. Replace the battery and plug in the mains supply, press power for a few seconds and it should start up.

Gateway M-1625 Will Not Power Up?


When the AC adapter is plugged in, does it wiggle excessively if you try to wiggle it at the jack where it plugs into the notebook? If so, the power jack had become unsoldered from the main board. You would have to take the main board completely out to get to the solder pins, then resolder them with a LOW-WATTAGE soldering iron. If you think you were successful, lay a bead of epoxy between the jack and the main board on the three sides away from the connection hole. Let it dry for 24 hours, then put everything back together. A service maual would be useful, if you can get one.

HP pavillion dv1000 won't charge


Try using your laptop without the battery and just using your power supply (new universal or your old one).
If your laptop works on just mains power it means your battery is causing the problem, which is not unusual.
