Question about Computers & Internet
A friend gave an acer aspire 5560-7415 to me but, he wasn't able to find the a/c adapter. I've exhausted my many a/c adapters from laptops I have and from "the bone yard" of misc. adapters, plugs, chargers and other electonics/computer stuff. I've amassed almost 4 of the larger sized plastic storage tubs full of this stuff. YES, i matched the canter pin size of the plug into the computer and nothing. Not one of the a/c adapters worked on the acer and they work on the laptops i got them from. It must be the negative and positive has been changed on the charger to laptop plug.

It appears that you have faulty laptop power connector socket.
This is why it appears to work sometimes when you plug the connector into the laptop in some direction.
To confirm this, wriggle the connector while you look at the charge light on the laptop, if it blinks as you wriggle it then the power socket is either faulty or just needs resoldering so it will make proper electrical contact.
You can get a compute techo to do this or you can do it yourself but it requires dismantling the laptop completely to get at this power socket.

Most likely, it's either the laptop systemboard is bad...or it may be something as simple as the small connectors being bent so that the battery does not make a good connection.
The battery usually rests against small bendable connectors inside the laptop socket for the battery. These connector strips can sometimes get bent too far in to being in a flatter position so that the battery when inserted into the socket just does not make a good connection.
If you are sure that the battery is touching these connectors, then most likely the systemboard part of the laptop that controls the battery charging has stopped working.
If the laptop is no longer under warranty, and depending on the age of the laptop; I'd probably just leave it as is using just the AC adapter, and not repair it, as this will likely cost more to repair it than you want to pay when comparing this cost to purchasing a new laptop.

Testimonial: "Thanks Robert, I appreciate your input. What you suggested is probably the problem. Bent battery paddle connectors. I will make sure they are straightened out and making contact with the battery terminals. Should fix the problem and if it doesn't, Oh well! I'll use it on charger and will not purchase a new motherboard. That would be more than it is worth! Thanks again ~ Dennis"
SOURCE: I have an Acer Aspire laptop. I just bought a new battery AND a new charger, however when I plug in the charger,the icon doesn't always show that it is charging....it will go on and off, but doesn
you could have a faulty dc jack (where charger plugs in to the laptop)
