Question about Acer Aspire 5600 Series 5630-6951 Laptop

Open Question

No power to my Acer Aspire 5600

I have a "crack" that runs to my power button that lights up blue when it's plugged in. Well, recently when I plug in my computer, the crack doesn't light up so it's not getting power and won't turn on. I also have a related issue where I guess I put the battery back in wrong and it doesn't always recognize it. But because it's jammed in wrong I can't get the lever to pull back to release it!

This all happened last week and then it magically started turning on again. But now it's happening again. We tried a 2nd power cord that adapts to any computer, and it works on my husband's laptop, so it can't be the power cord.

I had a similar issue once and they had me remove the battery and hold down the power button for 30 sec to drain off excess charge or something and it worked. But I just tried that it it doesn't do anything...

One last piece of info: lately if I leave my computer on for a while it makes a vroom sound. It's only 1 1/2 years old!

Is there any hope? Do I need to buy a new computer? Thank you for your help!!!

Where is the wireless button located on the Acer Aspire 5600, how do I turn it on


If there isn't a small button on your laptop, then see if any button on your laptop has a "blue-ish" colored icon that might be Wireless. Pressing FN and that button should activate it.

Acer TravelMate Laptop, cord getting hot, not getting power


I would imagine the voltage regulator in the adapter brick it dying...it will fry your motherboard if it starts throwing off power spikes. laptops need good consistent power flow of the right voltage. Buy another adapter.

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
