Question about Acer Extensa Computers & Internet
Jus bought a new battery for Acer Extensa 5230E and battery light not coming on, and suggestions???
you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light
up, If not then
The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptops power socket could be faulty.
Check power adapters DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptops power socket. If the power or battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Boot up into safe mode (F8 at startup) and pick the 'administrator' login. By default there is no password for this, and that should get you in. Then you remove the password from the other account. :-)

Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the jack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to take the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the motherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.
