Look on the Internet for a manual for the machine. It sounds as if the power cord should go to a power block which you haven't got and which then plugs into the machine.
Is the Acer a PC or a laptop? PC power sockets are at the back, laptops ditto but are much smaller, usually round.

SOURCE: What power supply does Lacie 160GB external hard drive use?

Although not sold at Best Buy™, there are available adapters/cables to make this transfer possible. I recommend using a search engine to find "firewire to usb." Hopefully this will give you the results you need.

SOURCE: WD Notebook Hard disk power problem

The power cord connects to a little circuit board inside the case, and the hard drive itself connects to the board. I would think that if you damaged anything it would be the board but not the drive. You could try taking the drive out of the case and connecting it directly to your computer (or you could get a computer shop or computer geek friend to do it if you don't feel up to it). If the drive itself isn't damaged you will be able to read your data.

SOURCE: Not working

The only help I can offer is to suggest trying another power adapter first. I've serviced several Maxtor external drives that lit up but wouldn't spin (just clicked), and the trouble turned out to be the power adapter was just too weak. If the adapter is okay, the trouble might be on the interface board inside the case. You would need to remove the drive from its enclosure and connect it directly to a PC power supply to check it out. If the drive itself is in fact faulty, your only option is to contact a data retrieval company to see if they can recover the data from your drive. Be warned: this is an expensive operation.

I just today ordered a new power supply adapter for my Smartdisk Crossfire 250 gb hard drive (I had a broken pin on my original one). Paid $29 plus shipping. We'll see if it arrives this coming week. If you still need one, here's a link to it:
Good luck!

Replace power supply

Be sure to look on back of tower to see what power you need. The power plug needs to be 115v or 125v on most. Be sure your cord is the same voltage.

I have an Acer AT3720A TV and it's not getting any power at all and i know it's not the cord because i tested it and it's getting full power anyone have any idea as to how i can fix it?

your problem most probably lies with a burnt fuse in the back of the tv set.unplug the tv put on a solid surface and remove the back of the set.if you look carefully enough you wil spot a elongated glass casing with two bright metal ends.remove and inspect or test the fuse,and if burnt fit the back loosely on the set and plug in ,turn on and if it works,unplug refasten back and the job is done, congratulations.

How to fit a new power jack (charger) in a acer aspire one zg5 just will not charge the charger is ok as is the battery both tested on another computer so i think it is the jack regards terry

The first thing I suggest is to plug in your laptop then pull the cord under your laptop tug it towards you if you are able to obtain a connection use your laptop2.gif to hold the cord. Thats what I am doing now
If that does not work find the spot where you can connect ( by tugging cord back and forth or up and down) and hold the connection with tape or a clamp.

Acer TravelMate Laptop, cord getting hot, not getting power

I would imagine the voltage regulator in the adapter brick 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.

Acer 5050 laptop no power

I have the same thought.
But please check the new power adaptor has the same output voltage as the old one.
If same the power supply unit needs to be changed on the laptop.

All the best!

Lost cord


you can try looking at thrift stores, usually they have a "cord wall" or cord bin, that lexmark I believe has the power supply that kind of fits into the back of the printer so it should be easy to spot, but when you look at the power suppliy make sure it says lexmark on it before you buy it,
just an idea
