Acer 1690 freezes when plugged into wall adapter

As soon as I plug my laptop into wall charger, it freezes and I have to shut down manually. This is a problem because my battery only lasts 10 minutes so I dont get any work done switching back and forth! What can be the problem? please help!

    but wouldn't it be good? I can only use my computer when i'm on the battery. Can't use it when I plug it in. Doesnt that mean the battery is good and the cord is bad? I just bought this cord a few months ago.. it should still be good.

Hi, my laptop crashes when the ac adaptor is plugged in yet it will charge the battery fine when the laptop is shut down.


Problem description: The laptop shuts off when AC power adapter is plugged in. The laptop works fine on battery power but as soon as you connect it to AC adapter, the laptop turns off.
Possible cause: 1. Power adapter failure.
2. Motherboard failure.
Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution: First of all, test the power adapter. Make sure the adapter outputs correct voltage. It's possible that the output voltage is not correct and the laptop shuts down to prevent the damage. Test your laptop with another known good power adapter.
If the problem still exists, even after replacing the adapter, most likely it's the motherboard failure. Replace the motherboard.

My 1690 don't start black screen.


There could be a couple of reason why laptop didn't start-up. Basic: the battery is dead and need to be recharged. Possibly the battery isn't keeping charge and the AC power charge is un-plug from the wall. Leaving the laptop without power. Make sure everything is plugged in and try to power it up. It that doesn't work then it could be the power supply in the laptop it self. Good Luck!!!

Your motherboard is probably shorting out your A/C adapter, you may need a new motherboard. With a Dell, the A/C adapter light will be green when plugged into the wall but as soon as you plug it into the PC the green light goes off. Which means that the Motherboard is shorting out the A/C adapter...

hope this helps

My charger won't work so now my computer wont turn on


Unplug you ac adapter from the wall and plug a lamp in to verify that the wall plug is working correctly. Pick up the adapter to see if it feels warm. Most adapters will feel warmer than room temperature if they are working,
If the cords on your adapter can be unplugged from the adapter, reseat them. Try the ac adapter in another wall plug to see if it comes on. The adapter may have an LED on it that indicates whether or not it is on. If it doesn't, about the only way to check it is to use a multimeter to see if there is any voltage on the plug that goes into the back of the laptop. If something else will work in the original wall plug and the adapter won't work in another wall plug, you will need to obtain another ac adapter.
Once you've tried these things, let me know and we'll go from there.
Thanks!
