Try removing the battery and plug in the power adapter and then power on your laptop. If this doesn't work, put the battery back in and plug in the power adapter and try turning it on. If that doesn't work then take the power cable out and try with only the battery. Try in this order and see if it comes back up, if not, you may have some dead hardware.

    If you tried the options I said, then you either need to contact your warranty, try a new battery, or replace the laptop. One final thing that I have seen work occasionally is to take the battery out, take the memory out, and take the CD drive out and plug in the power adapter and try to turn it on, if you get any beeping, then put it all back together and it may come back up.

Acer aspire 1640 wont boot up


TRY TAKING YOUR BATTERY OUT FOR 15 MINUTES THEN PUTTING IT BACK IN. IF IT COMES BACK ON, RECALIBRATE YOUR BATTERY BY LETTING THE BATTERY GO DOWN TO 5% THEN PLUG THE POWER CORD IN. YOUR BATTERY MAY NOT BE STRONG ENOUGH TO TURN THE SCREEN ON, EVEN THOUGH YOUR BATTERY METER SHOWS IT HAS A GOOD CHARGE. QUICK CHARGES OR FREQUENTLY UNPLUGGING IT CAUSES THE BATTERY METER TO READ DIFFERENT THAN THE AMOUNT OF CNARGE THE BATTERY IS ACTUALLY HOLDING. RECALIBRATING IT WILL GET THE METER AND THE BATTERY BACK ON THE SAME CYCLE.

Wont charge while powered on or run on ac power


Sounds like a lose or burnt charge terminal.  Fixing would require disassembling the laptop and resoldering the loose or broken connections.  You might want to try a different AC adapter first.

Wont turn on


pull the battery and try to power on. if no good test the power adapter with a meter - should give 18-19 volts. if it boots with battery off, power up and put battery back on to charge.

Discharges battery after being turned off.


The battery light on a notebook only uses .07 volts to light up and very minnium current.Your battery light isnt discharging your battery.Something called internal resistance is what is discharging your battery.If you are gonna park your notebook for a while and not use it. Take the battery out of the notebook. You will experence less battery drain . But a battery that is getting old may have drain even when not installed in the notebook.Try running the battery compleatly out of juce then charge it 24 hours then do this several times in some battery types this will help them hold a charge better. I hope I have been some help I own Kips Computer Service in Hattiesburg,MS. My e mail is pinebeltrecords2@aol.com feel free to e mail
