Question about Acer Aspire 5050 Notebook
The battery looks the same as the old one except it is a 4800mAh instead of the 4000 that came with the unit. The "made in china for ACER" label is on it. It will sit in the bios screen for more than an hour, untill the battery is dead. when i turn on the laptop it says charging, unknown remaining and the yellow light never turns green. when I pull out the power cord the laptop shuts off almost immediatly. but if I restart it and go into the BIOS screen again, it will stay on for an hour or more. This problem started with the new battery, the old battery still works even though I only get 9:00 with it, at least I can walk from one room to the other without shutting my laptop down.
The new battery is defective - It needs to be repacked. If you're still close enough to date or purchase(even for an ebay purchase), you should be able to do a swap.
