Question about Acer Aspire 5610-4648 Notebook

1 Answer

Acer Aspire 1804WSMi (hardware issue)

This Laptop when either powered by battery or through power adapter powers on, ie the power button lights up and the three fans on the underside of the Laptop start working. The light to the RW-DVD also comes on.The note book does not boot up. The screen does not come on either. After the note book has been powered on the middle fan which cools the processor stops after about 2 seconds, whereas the other two cooling fans continue working. I removed one of the panels to the back of the laptop and I have cleaned all the heatsinks to the notebook which are for processor, graphics card chipset and motherboard chipset. I also checked to see if the processor had been damaged by heat and found that there was NO OUTWARD SIGN THAT THE PROCESSOR HAD BURNED OUT. I would also like to point out after I powered on the note book I had to remove the battery and the power adapter to get the notebook to power down. I have not found any other way to power down the notebook. Could Someone please help me find out what is wrong, Thanks Ian

Can you get into the bios at setup and reset it to default settings.....the CPU cannot burn out what happens if it overheats it just shuts down. I dont think its a hardware issue because you said youhad to shut it down by removing the battery and the adapter you shut it down I imagine by holding down the power on button?. When you have to do that its a software problem.

Acer aspire 3004 battery not charging


Hello.

The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.
Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

My Acer aspire 4935 is not recognizing the AC adapter. When ever I shutdown the system and connects the AC adapter, it works and the charging LED lights up. Once I press the power button to boot the...


Problem description:The battery charges only when the laptop turned off. The battery charge LED lights up as normal and the battery gets charged to 100% while the laptop is off.
When the laptop is turned on, the battery charge LED goes off even if the adapter is still plugged in.
Possible cause:1. AC power adapter failure.
2. Battery failure.
3. Broken/loose power jack.
4. Motherboard failure.
Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution:1. This problem could be related to a faulty AC power adapter. It's possible that the AC adapter doesn't provide enough power when plugged into the laptop. To find out if this is your problem, you'll have to test the laptop with another working adapter.Replace the adapter if needed.

2. There is a slight chance that you have bad battery. Test the laptop with a know good battery and replace the faulty one if needed.

3. The battery charge problem could be related to the power jack. Maybe the jack is broken or not making good contact with the motherboard. It is necessary to remove the motherboard and take a closer look at the power jack. Resolder or replace the jack if needed.

4. If the power jack is in a good working shape and new power adapter with battery do not fix the problem, most likely you have a faulty motherboard. Replace the motherboard if needed.

It just wont turn on i have checked the power lead and its ok its an acer aspire 5050 laptop


Hi. I would suggest you double check the ac adapter if the powercord is properly attach to it ot also you might want to try powerdraining or powercycling your computer. To do this you must turn off your laptop then remove the battery and unplug the ac adapter then press and hold the power button for 20 seconds while the battery and ac adapter is out, after that place back the battery and plugin the ac adapter and try turning on your laptop, if this doesnt work then try power draining it again and just use the ac adapter or just plug it in without the battery then try again turning it on. If it still has the power issue then try a known good ac adapter so that you could double check that it is not an ac adapter issue or a battery issue. If all that trouble shooting step doesnt work then you could also try calling acer tech support to help you on your issue if your machine or laptop is still under warranty they would help you fix it by sending that laptop to there depot without any charge. Hope this Helps

I have ACER ASPIRE 2920, the power suplly can't turn ON


There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.

If this did not work, try also disassembling the laptop & make sure that all main components are seated properly. Also make sure that all ribbon cables interconnecting the various components of the laptop are tightly connected.

Acer aspire 4930 wont turn on


If the power LED on the Notebook is blinking but not turning ON then the issue is related to the power supply unit and service is required.

Acer aspire 5520 laptop. Is it dead?


To verify it isn't a battery issue you can try taking the battery out completely and plugging in the A/C adapter and turning it on.

Without more information it's hard it's hard to diagnose your issue more specificially. Do you get any lights on the front?

I have Acer laptop ASPIRE 7720-4725, One day after finish, my work I shutdown the laptop. But when I tried to start it next morning It was not be on. I checked it various expert in india they says its...


Ok, good luck with that one. You may have to get another laptop. Probably a power issue, but you'd have to provide more details for that(IE no lights, lights blink, what color etc). The motherboard is the main component on a computer/laptop. Laptop motherboard replacement is the worst case scenario. You don't want to do this yourself unless you're a technician, even then I caution it's very time consuming and can be very frustrating. The first thing, I'd do is rule out the battery and power adapter. Some laptops don't turn on if the battery is fried. Many batteries drop dead prematurely because people forget to unplug the laptop and let the batteries discharge once a month(give or take). Some laptops will run fine without a battery, if this laptop was one of those(check the manual), then you can take that one out and just try a different power adapter. Considering the cost of a new adapter, it might be worth buying one and trying it, though if it were me, I'd check my adapter with my Voltmeter...

My Aspire 5315 will not start


I actually contacted Acer by email for this and got a reply in less than a day.

Try the steps below for a power reset, to eliminate a hardware problem with your notebook:

1. Disconnect the AC adapter from the laptop.

2. Remove the battery.

3. Press and hold the power button for about 30 seconds then release it. (You will not see anything happen)

4. Connect the AC Adapter to the laptop. Make sure the AC Adapter is plugged in.

5. Turn the computer on as normal.

6. Once Windows boots, insert the battery.

If the notebook still does not power on, we recommend the notebook be serviced by our authorized repair depot.
