Question about Acer Aspire 4315 Notebook

Dead battery. Brand new computer. Only works with AC connected

My battery is flat out dead. it's a brand new aspire one (can't remember exact model), but the batteries won't charge. It says "total battery power remaining: unknown". According to the icon it is currently charging, but it hasn't progressed in a long time. Will I have to buy a new battery?
The manual doesn't say anything about charging it for 24 hours before use btw.

    Well, that's where it gets odd. When I bought it, the sign said the warranty covers the computer only and not the battery. I should be fine anyway though, because I think there is some sort of rule that says you can return an electrical item you buy within 14 days without any sort of real reason at all or something. But I don't really want to return the whole thing, I just want a battery that isn't messed up.
    Oh well. I'm going to the shop where I bought it later and ask them what's up.

Replace the batteries or sometimes there is a little plug the allows you to plug in a external power supply when batteries go dead. Google the brand name and model # to get closer to exact problem solving.

Gateway nv52 won't charge

It sounds like you either have a dead mother board or a bad power inlet. Did the machine work with the new battery while it was charged? If so, then the battery connector was good and the inlet was bad. If not, your motherboard could be dead. I've also seen where a bad battery connector would syphon off enough power to not power on the machine or charge the battery.

I have a brand new n145-jp02 netbook computer and the screen will not turn on. The lights on the bottom dash light up but so far I have not been able to get an image on the screen. Any ideas??

Here are the steps to turning the computer on from Samsung's user manual
1. install the battery and connect the AC adapter.
2. Lift the LCD panel up.
3. For N-Series model
Slide the Power Switch to the right (on the right side at the front edge) to turn the computer on.

If the AC adapter is not connected then the netbook is running only on battery power
and the LCD brightness is automatically set to low.

Is the battery pack dead? I was given a brand new

This is most likely a defect in the part of the laptop that uses the battery. You could try a new battery but most likely the laptop is in need of repair. If it is new you can contact acer and have it serviced under warranty. if you need further assistance let me know. Also please take a moment to accept and rate my solution.
Thank you,

Brand New laptop, won't start

Try taking the battery out before you turn it on. Have seen completely a dead dead battery keeping a laptop from starting up. Does the hard drive activity light flickering? If it is you can try holding down the Function button (FN) and there should be another button to hit to switch between LCD\CRT.
