MY acer aspire 3680 not powering on. The light on the power cord is on but the light at the front of the laptop is not showing. I took out the battery and replaced it no differennce. I held down the power...

When you wriggle the plug in the power socket on the laptop and the charge LED flashes and in the right position it charges, this indicates that the power socket is faulty or there is a dry solder joint on the motherboard where this power socket is attached.
To get at the power socket will require dismantling the laptop completely.
If you are confident, can dismantle, reassemble a laptop and use a temperture controlled solder iron then try and fix it. If not a computer repair shop can do the repair, I suggest you get a quote first.

Says plugged in not charging

Take out the battery and make sure you can turn on the laptop with just the AC Adaptor hooked up.

If you can then you know the AC Adaptor is good. Try another known good working battery in the laptop, if the battery charges then you know that the old battery is bad.

If the laptop doesn't charge with a know working battery or a new one then you know that the motherboard is bad.

Acer aspire 3680 laptop will not charge while plugged in wall

It appears that you have faulty laptop power connector socket.
This is why it appears to work sometimes when you plug the connector into the laptop in some direction.
To confirm this, wriggle the connector while you look at the charge light on the laptop, if it blinks as you wriggle it then the power socket is either faulty or just needs resoldering so it will make proper electrical contact.
You can get a compute techo to do this or you can do it yourself but it requires dismantling the laptop completely to get at this power socket.

3680 charging issue

ok " new batteries would be a cool Idea, but did ya know you can set your laptop for desk top mode and laptop mode, desktop uses more power , laptop conserves power .

go to control panel look for power management.
