Re: AC adapter melted inside the computer plug

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..

Hi I have a Acer Aspire 776z labtop, and the computer shut off and will not turn on it was runnig perfectly. please HELP!! Thank You

Is with ac or battery power. In any case, remove your battery and plug in your ac adapter. If it turns on then it's your battery. If it doesn't if is either your ac adapter, dc jack, or something more serious. Let me know.

Ferrari 4000 laptop a/c adaptor will not charge laptop,adaptor ok


Thank you for your query it sounds like you have multiple hardware issues

1) you mention that the ac adapter does not charge, then you say ac adapter ok. Please clarify if the adapter is faulty or the battery

2) As for the line in your screen, your LCD is faulty and will need to be replaced

I would recommend that you book the laptop into a reputable PC shop for further investigation/repair

If this has been useful please leave postive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank You Again

My acer 4520 laptop shuts off while using it. why? cant seem to complete any task without powering it back on.


This may sound stupid, but it could be as simple as your battery being low. If the battery is charged and it is still shutting off on you, the battery may need to be replaced.

One way to verify this would be to remove the battery, and plug the computer into the AC Adapter and see if it runs properly.

If it works fine, then you know that there's a problem with the battery. If not, then it may be something more serious like a motherboard issue. If it gets to that point, I suggest you take it somewhere that it can be physically looked at.

Hope this helped :)

New AC Adapter Will Not Charge Battery/Operate Computer

Most probably static electricity killed some circuitry inside your laptop.

Acer ferrari dead

no, Laptop Computers do not have fuses.

How are you sure the AC adapter is working? Do you have a power tester...if you don't I suggest sticking your tongue into the power tip, if it shocks you, it means it working.

Also try taking the Battery out, sometimes a bad battery will prevent it from powering on.

Lastly check to make sure you didn't break the DC jack tip (the part of the laptop you plug the adapter too) this is probably one of the most commonly broken parts on a laptop.

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?
