Try to clean the socket on the computer, when the socket become rusted/slack it may become warm. use sandpaper to remove the rust then use contact cleaner spray. don't forget to remove the battery pack when you clean the socket. or... There might be a problem with the battery pack. Try using a replacement battery pack of the same type. hope this help..

Acer Ferrari power problem.


what appears to be the problem on this system is power related. when the power adapter was being hit to temporarily come on it reflects a loose connection or component in the power adapter which eventually was let loose and cause a shot circuit which explains the smoke. This is likely to cause a circuit problem in the laptop. Take the battery out and try to power it again?
