Re: battery fully charged, or is it.
Good Day Blunty,
It's one of two things, the more likely of the two is that that battery is totaly shot, laptop battery's are usually only good for 1.5 years then loose there ability to retain a charge. It sounds like that one's just done. Unfortunatly that those batterys cost more than there worth, 100 bucks or more.
The second possibility is the power cord, is that the original power cord for that? Or was on that was bought aftermaket, some aftermarket chargers will only power your laptop and not charge. Also remove the battery and check for corrison. You can build your own battery fot a a laptop if got a few hours time, and are good with a soldering gun. You get the litium ion cells you need for about 40 bucks.

If you can reach inside the computer and rub the battery contacts gently to remove the corrosion ,which is invisible , this will help greatly. Sometimes even a new battery will suffer the same. Clean the battery contacts also turn off the laptop and charge it fully do this on a regular basis. Say once every 2 months
That would mean your battery is dying and you need to go buy a new battery for your laptop. You can buy new batterys for around $40 Find a store that sells laptop parts or go online look on amazon or next tag also when you get your new battery plugin your laptop charge your new battery so it has a full charge.Then when it is done charging unplug it and use the battery until it dies, then plug it in again to recharge it never leave it plugged in if it is fully charged for long periods.if you are using your laptop at home you can pull out the battery and use it when its plugged into the wall this will help to extend your battery life just make sure you have a fully charged battery before leaving your house. always unplug your your laptop when its is fully charged this will also extend your battery life for along time
Will the unit work without the battery? The new Lithium Ion batteries can be overcharged and then cause all kinds of strange problems. Take the battery to a reputable electronics shop or Batteries Plus and have them run a voltage and current test. The current test being the most revealing. If either of these is higher than the level printed on the battery, dispose of it. Also, check ACER's web site for battery problems. All the computer manufacturers have had battery problems.
Its a common problem of this phone. What you need to do is:
1. Charge the battery fully. It may be not charged while in phone. So take out the battery and charge it any other way. Insert fully charged battery and check. You can also check with other fully charged battery for the same model.
2. If not work, you need to repair erom. For this better go to repair shop.
Its late, so just to make sure I'm not brain-dead basically your laptop runs fine as long as its powered by the AC adaptor but dies fairly quickly while running via battery.
This is very typical of a battery that will no longer hold a charge, not normally a user repairable item. It could also be that the charging electronics (in the laptop) isn't charging the battery, again not a typical user repair job. About your only option short of taking it to the repair shop is buying or borrowing a battery as a test.
