Question about Acer Aspire 5600 Series 5630-6951 Laptop

1 Answer

Acer Aspire 5633WLMi Laptop

It doesn't recognise the power cable! The cable is switched on, plugged in, and the light on the adapter box (excuse the lack of technical vocabulary) is on. The amber battery light flashes for about 1 second in every 5 when plugged in, not at all when not. When the laptop was on, it wouldn't recognise the cable as being on. Even off, the light on the optical mouse comes on only when plugged into the mains. The power worked initially, fully charging the battery once, but stopped after playing a DVD (which shouldn't make any difference). It was less than a day old and now it has died. Help!

Unplug everything that isn't necessary to run the laptop ie, external mouse, battery, etc. Then plug the ac adapter in, making sure the switch for 110/220 is appropriate for your region. Now, does the machine turn on? PLease respond with the answer, and we'll go from there. Good luck

When I turn power on my acer aspire netbook the screen is black. The only light that lights up is the battery light. Do you know what is the problem and how can I fix it?

Have you tried turning it on using your adapter? If there is still no power light, try removing the power jack in the laptop and the power cable in the adapter and re-insert it both then plug it then test it again. If there is still no power light, try bending slowly the power jack cable in the laptop while inserted and slowly bend and move until you reach the power adapter. Observe the power light while bending the cable. If the light turns on while bending, the wire/s on the cable might be cut where you bend and see the power light turning on. If there's still no power light, your power adapter or the laptops power supply might be defective.

Hi, my Acer Aspire 5633WLMi has started to turn itself off automatically after about an hours use (of just browsing on the internet) I've had the laptop for 2.5 years. I always have it plugged into the...

Hi, from what you are describing it seems like it is not power related, it could be overheating problem, the best thing you can do is to clean the airways in the bottom of your laptop especially under the fan with a compressed air can, you can find the air can in any electronics store just follow the instructions on the can and be carefull not to break the fan fins with lots of air presser, start slow and clean all air ways then give the computer a try... hope that helps

My acer aspire 5517 will not charge at all

Could be your power supply, it could be bad and is not charging. Check to see if the green light come on, on the adapter. Try testing this if you have another charger, if not, try taking your battery out, and only using the power supply adapter only to see if the computer turns on. If not, then your charger is 100% history and needs replacement. If it does, could be your battery going bad on you. There could also be another possibilty that your power jack is broken, damaged or loose. Check and inspect your power outlet, the only way to be sure about this is testing your adapter to another device if it works/chargge the other laptop.

There is no power from the battery or the adapter and the laptop does not recognise the adapter is plugged in. there are no lights coming on and the power button is doing nothing

Your battery maybe out of charge. Thats why nothing happens when you press the power button. The battery may not be charging because the power cord might not be working. Try another power cord.

Try removing the battery and plugging the power cord and switching on the computer. If its the problem with the power cord the computer wont start. If it starts, the power cord is working fine.

Sir, i have bought a acer laptop model aspire 5920 but when i was working on it suddenly it shut down and till now i cannot made it power on can you tell me the problem

Remove the battery and the power adapter, wait 5 minutes, plug in the power adapter and try turning it on, if it doesn't turn on, remove the power adapter, plug in the battery and try starting up again, if it still doesn't work plug in the power adapter, try starting up.

Is the power adapter working? does it have a green led on it that shows that its powered?

When typing, I get numbers instead of letters

Press the Num Lock key. The Num Lock indicator light should go out.
