You need to recharge the battery or replace it. Does it work when plugged in with an AC adapter?

What stops computer from starting up


turn off the notebook. take a regualr desktop monitor VGA or LCD monitor and plug into the notebook (make sure to power up both the notebook with AC adapter and power cord for monitor). Turn both on and you should see video on the desktop monitor . if you do not see anything, i would hint at the fact that the notebook screen may be bad. Do you hear the hard disk drive spinning when you turn on the notebook ? if so, thats a good indication that the mainboard is still working and that the LCD screen on the notebook is not functioing . You will have to replace the LCD (notebook) screen

If the screen is blank then you probably switched to an external screen,to switch to a tv
No worries
what you need to do is press the function key and the key with the picture of a mini screen / oval and circle
it will pull you back to your main screen: back to normal.
hope it helps

Locked keyboard and mousepad on acer aspire 6920G

Almost same problem: the mouse froze.

Found a nice solution at another website: switch off the pc, unplug the power supply cable AND remove battery. Press "on" switch for 20 seconds. Now re-install battery, plug back power supply cable, and switch on. Worked for me (what exactly worked for me I don't know but hey)

Good luck.

Abnormally Switches off

I'm afraid that this sounds like either a fuse, capacitors or a blown relay on the motherboard. Otherwise, it could also have something to do with some kind of problem involving the battery.

First and foremost, take the battery out of the system before doing anything else. See what happens without the battery in the laptop. If the problem seems to be solved by doing so by some chance, then you probably have a short in the battery itself. (Which would explain the issue.)

Beyond that, the most I can advise on is checking the power settings in your BIOS as quickly as you possibly can before it shuts off. See if there is anything in particular that might have an effect on the system's operation. I would disable any power-saving features and such... Just to cut those unnecessary variables out of the equation.

See if you can get it into the BIOS...and see if it still shuts down once it is in the BIOS. (No doubt it will... It wouldn't make ANY sense if it didn't, now would it?)

Try those things for now... But do NOT rate me if this does not fix your laptop. Remember that we are here to TRY our best to provide a solution. This is not meant to be a solution.

This is meant to find a cause for the problem. Only THEN can we give any kind of solid solution or conclusion.

Either way, I ask that you wait to rate me until after we follow these steps and I give you my conclusions. If the laptop is fragged, I ask that you give me a fair rating based on my attempt. Not based on the fact that I could not fix your laptop.

Remember that hardware failure is NOT OUR FAULT. We tried to help either way.

Thanks and let me know what happens. K?
