the battery is gone dude. This year manufactures have reduced the quality of batteries drastically to cut down the costs and i think u got even the worst of them.

and whats more they they dont even give warranty on batteries for more than 6 months.

so U'll have to get new one. Sorry

Sorry. It seems that your battery is dead.
If your laptop is working fine on AC power only (with the battery disconnected), then your battery will need to be replaced.

Acer aspire one shows no power light when charger is plugged in...charger shows 6 volts


Hello, I'll do my best to help you out.
The Acer One have one weird problem, and that is of the mother board. "Naaahh, how can that be?" you may ask. The BIOS in the motherboard have a bug, in which in a certain amount of time it will shut down the Netbook and it will give you the impression that it's dead. But it isn't. As you posted it here, the power supply is working fine. I'm not sure if it's still available, but there is a patch, which it will allow you to flash and fix the Netbook. Now, I'm not able to share the patch with you just because there is no detIl on your Netbook, for example, I own an Acer One ZG5. If yours happen to be the same exact model, let me know and I'll do everything I can to share the patch with you and how to flash it.

My zg5 laptop battery will not power my laptop.battery is new. fully charged.


Hi John,

For the sake of clarity: the battery which will not charge/power your Acer Aspire One Netbook is the original battery that came with the Acer, is this correct?
Assuming that the answer is Yes then replacement with a NON Acer, universal battery is the only solution.
Reputable internet shops, such as Amazon, have these at around $50...
DANGER; Due to the recall of thousands of Acer (HP and others) batteries with a possible fire hazard please dispose of promptly and properly.
Best Buy has a Recycle program:

Thanks!

It is not charging


I recently had an Acer Aspire One that (after fully discharging) would no longer hold a charge. It worked fine when plugged in, but would turn off right after discharging. This is due to a BIOS error, and this article will show you how to update the BIOS to the official Acer revision 3309.

This article is meant for the AOA110 and AOA150 models ONLY, ingluding the ZG series of AOA110 and AOA150 netbooks.

1. On a separate computer, click here: http://gd.panam.acer.com/

2. Click Netbook -> Acer Aspire One -> AOA150 -> and then below, choose the "BIOS" tab.

3. Click the orange "Down" arrow to download the BIOS.

4. Open the .zip file and extract the two files: "3310.fd" and "Flashit.exe" onto your thumb drive. Rename "3310.fd" to "zg5ia32.fd"

5.Insert the thumb drive into your powered off Netbook.

6.Press and hold down the "Fn" and "Esc" keys and turn on the Netbook while still holding these keys for about 30 seconds, then let go.

7. Your Netbook should stay black for anywhere from 2-4 minutes or so. Once it restarts, safely remove your thumb drive, and charge it for a while. It should successfully hold a charge from now on.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

Acer Aspire one battery won't charge. Please advise my options. Thanks


This problem is usually caused by either a worn out battery (if you've had it for quite a while) or a faulty adapter/power cord. If you know anyone who has a similar Acer Aspire One Netbook, you could try using their battery and/or power cord to narrow down the issue. You can also buy laptop/netbook batteries relatively cheap on eBay and even if the batter ends up not being the issue, you will have a spare battery to take with you or for down the road when your current battery wears out.

My Acer Aspire one won't turn on.


I also have this problem with my Acer netbook.  I have only had it for 4 months and am in Turkey on an extended break at the moment.  I have taken the netbook to a dealer here and have been told the problem is the motherboard, verified by Acer themselves.  I am not happy with this as the netbook was not cheap and there appears to be a few Acer models with the same problem
