Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

1 Answer

My acer aspire one notebook won't boot up.

My dog chewed up the old charger plug, so I had to get a new cord. I did try the old chewed chord to see if it would still work but it didn't. The computer doesn't boot up and the battery light just flashes a few times after hitting the power button. I bought a new charger and the same thing is happening... I took the battery out and tried to start it without the battery but it doesn't start up that way either and the light doesn't flash without the battery in.

    I didn't get a new battery for it.. So I'm not sure if that's the problem or not. I've tried "parrotheadpc"s suggestions as many as I could. Meaning the first suggestion only. There is only one panel on the back and there's nothing inside under the panel. There isn't any other panels to remove... I've also tried turning the cable around and wiggling it and nothing working with that.. The battery light just keeps flashing.. If I hold down the power button, after the first set of battery flashing, the flashing changes, to much slower flashing, and the light remaining on longer. I don't know if this helps at all lol.

Is the new cord/charger/transformer the EXACT same power specs? When your "dog ate your charger", it may have shorted out something in the Laptop? Was it plugged it when your dog ate it?

    yes it's the same charger, brand/model. And yes it was plugged in... The dog got a shock to :( but he's okay. I'm thinking something got fried in the laptop... Wish I knew for sure though.

SOURCE: acer aspire one battery light flashes orange.

Finally I got it working again, after a lot of try's (just put the plug in for a few hours) the led was red again for a brief moment, then it starting to flash orange again.
I looked it up on a lot of forums, the problem is that the (old) bios doesn't charge the batery anymore when it is deeply discharged.
So I put the plug in and out for about 10-15 times , and the brief moment it is not flashing it's still charging. Until it is not deeply discharged anymore and then it is charging the batery like it did before.

But I still don't understand why it is not working without the batery inserted ??

Acer aspire m5 won't charge


it sounds like one of three things:

1. Battery itself no longer functions
2. Laptop Charger has inadequate amperage
3. The motherboard is defective (most likely).

If you have another battery, or a friend with the same battery, you can try that first (and someone else's laptop charger).

If the problem is the motherboard, you can try to have it repaired but I don't trust many companies to do this kind of work. I outsource my motherboard jobs to a company called Laptop Rescue (http://www.laptoprescue.com/laptop-repair-2/). Coincidentally, they also sell laptop chargers in case that's the problem. Hopefully it's just a charger or battery issue and not a motherboard.

Remove the battery and plug in the Cord/charger, will it boot? If no, try another Cord/Charger with the EXACT same power specs. Replace battery if necessary.

My Acer KAV60 laptop won't turn on. When I push the power botton, it blinks green once then nothing.


Has the laptop been damaged? Dropped? Same on battery? Remove battery, try AC only. Try another cord/charger with the EXACT same power specs. Reseat Memory mods. Test the DC volt output, at the laptop plug in, with a multimeter. Power issues are difficult to diagnose long distance.
