I recently ordered a battery for my acer aspire 5517 lapptop because my laptop had suddently stopped working and everyone said that it was the battery, I ordered the battery and that was was not the probem...


Hi

If the computer was purchased from a shop or as a new item last christmas then i would almost
deff say that you have at least a 1yr warranty on it hopefully your children has still got some kind of
proof of purchase so that they can go back to where they bought it from

As for the battery its worth contacting the seller he may well take it back as it hasnt fixed the problem that you had

good luck

Power light shows, nothing else works at all.


I had the same issue. It worked fine for a couple of months but one morning I turned the unit on & it was dead. The power light would come on but I got nothing else. It would not POST or show any other signs of life. I took it back to where I got it. They sent it off to Acer for me. The motherboard was dead. Acer replaced the motherboard and shipped it back. It took about three weeks but thankfully I did not lose any of my data as they left the HD intact. It has been working fine ever since (Now I make sure to backup my data on a weekly basis).

Power down


I know the original post is over 2 years old but I had the same problem. Here's what happened:

8 months after buying my Toshiba A135 the battery began charging only intermittently. It also would not run without the battery. I put up with it for a month then took it back to Best Buy to get it repaired under warranty. They kept it over 2 weeks then gave it back saying it was the battery, which they replaced. One week later I had the same problem again. Back to Best Buy. The guy at the counter said it was probably the battery, they had encountered a lot of that. I said no, explained it, and gave it over to be fixed. 2 weeks later I got it back. They had reset the BIOS, no hardware replacement. I got it home and it was not fixed. I took it back the next day. They kept it 2 more weeks. They replaced the motherboard. I took it home and...you guessed it the same problem on the day I got it home!!! I took it back with one week left on my warranty. I don't remember what they replaced the last time but I think it was the motherboard again. I got it home (2 weeks later) and THE SAME PROBLEM on the day I got it home. So, the lesson there is that Best Buy computer maintenance SUCKS!!

I called Toshiba to try to get them to fix it for free, and out of warranty. After several frustrating minutes of conversation with an accented person who just kept telling me that my warranty was up, I hung up and called back and got an English speaking person. SHE was very helpful, listened to my problem, agreed to give me a one-time fix ticket. They paid for the postage. When I got my computer back it was mostly fixed.

The problem was the module at the back of the computer where the power cord plugs in. It was defective. They replaced it and it worked fine after that, except that when it goes into sleep mode it will not wake up. I fixed that by turning off all the sleep mode options. BTW, a friend of mine with the same computer is now having the same problem.
