Question about Acer Aspire 4315-2490 Notebook

1 Answer

Power cord works on and off, faintly blinks

I have an Acer Aspire, and it was working fine about a month ago. All of the sudden, my laptop stopped charging. I checked all the outlets, but noticed that it was my power cord that wasn't working. At first glance, the light on the cord is off, but if you look at it closely, you can see that it is faintly blinking. It works on and off, but I obviously want it to work consistently. Help?

Unfortunately the components in your adapter are slowly becoming defective. If your device is under warranty consult your manual or the manufactures web site in regards to their return and replacement policy.

If your device is no longer under warranty, you have three options. You can purchase direct from the manufacturer, or from a third-party seller. Which is the best option, given the quality of the original equipment manufacture being higher then that of a off-brand or "universal" adapter.

However, a universal adapter is a good choice, economically, just be reminded of the adage that you get what you pay for.

My acer aspire 8930 suddenly stopped charging the battery. We put it in my husband's identical laptop and it charged fine. I researched on net and using info found, turned laptop on with battery r


Just because all systems look go. Does not mean the power cord is working correctly and the charging portion of the power supply unit may not be working you will still be able to power the computer on but not charge replace that unit and you should be back up and charging again. You know it is not a battery problem it is the cord and component due to your test. Makes sense to me also one other factor to consider, the battery may be charging but will not hold the charge be sure to fully charge the battery and see how long it takes to drain down. Just a suggestion. John

Will not turn on


Try removing the battery and reinserting again. If that doesn't work then you will need to take it in to a service centre for them to fix.
