hi-I have 2 of these 5100 notebooks-indicator lights are as follows -left is bluetooth next one is wireless lan, next one is power on,and the last one is battery. only way I know is to unplug it when not in usand the light will go off. if plugged in the light will stay on showing charging(orange) and charged (green). me i just put somthing in front of the light to block it from lighting my room at night.yes, they should have made it turn off at full charge, but they did not. good luck with that-hope this was helpful. have a great day!
Try removing the battery and connecting the AC adapter then see if it boots up.
Reinstall the battery and keep the AC adapter connected and see if it boots up, if so leave it charge the battery for several hours.
If none of these work, get a replacement as there is a more segnificant problem.
I hope this helps.
I,d suspect your problem will lie with, the systems CPU ( Processor ) or a component Overheating on the systems Motherboard. I would,nt suspect the Power Supply personally. unless your batterys not charging.
The Aspires should have no issue booting without the battery installed. Have you done a static reset? (i.e. hold the power switch for 20/30 seconds without power or battery in) And the voltage range on the Aspire 5100 should be +19v - +20.5v on the inner part of the connector so it might be worth checking that the power adapter is outputing correctly.
If it works without battery, then it can be checked by testing the voltage between pins 1 and 6 on the battery (the ones either end) and should be 7.5v or above if the battery is charging correctly.
Hope that gives you a starting point, if you've done all those things already then appologies and best of luck with it.
