Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop
Laptop was working fine and then it just stop charging. what can I do?
Batteries get old and wear out. Be use AC outlet is working. Check for power light on AC/DC charger box between laptop and AC.
It is common for Laptop charging/power connectors to get worn and/or loose(intermittent). Try to get charging light on PC by wiggling power connection to PC.
If not, if you have a VoltOhmMeter(VOM). check for 5V on barrel power connector on the charger side, that plugs into PC, Outside conductor is GND and Inner connector is (+5V). VOMs are cheap at RadioShack or AutoParts stores and are a handy tool to have around the house. Book shows you how to measure. PC is 120V AC on Wall side of PC Power Supply from Wall Outlet, and 5V DC on PC side of Charger.
Charger may be defective. Cheap on Ebay.
