Re: acer aspire 1705 smi charger problem

The power supply is detecting a fault. You are probably correct thinking it has the wrong pinout.
Before you pull it apart, consider returning it to the seller if it was sold with incorrect information.
If you disassemble anything, your refund/replacement and warrantee will be voided.

My cauzin Got Acer Aspire 5920 !! its charger stop working she buy another charger for it !! but due to inexperience she bought 24 volts instead of 18 volts !! after charging some time the laptop isn't...

One of two things. The Power Connector (on the motherboard) or the motherboard itself. If it is just the power connector, you can purchase a new one for around $10 (look at the specs for your model) and solder a new one on. If it is the motherboard, you'll be replacing alot more than it most likely. It could have fried the GPU, memory and Proc.

And the following three condition should be met for you to use an AC Adapter safely.
1) Output Voltage is within +/- 5% of your old charger's output.
For example, if your old charger provides 19.5V, then you can use a charger that provides 20.5V or 18.5V.
2) Output Current is the same or higher than that of your old charger.
For example, if your original adapter provides 3.42 Amps, then you can use a charger that provides 3.42 Amps, 3.9 Amps or higher.
3) Connector tip must fit securely into your laptop.

Specification of Acer Aspire 5920 Charger:
Output: DC19V 3.42A
DC Connecter (Barrel) size:
Internal Diameter: 1.5mm
External Diameter: 5.5mm

Problems with new laptop battery for my Acer 6920G.

You can't force the battery with a higher charge to work without damaging the computer. If the battery is a direct replacement it should work. If your original charger is not capable of charging the battery you can consider a charger replacement but I suspect the original charger you where using was bad to begin with if that is the case. You can try locating a replacement charger but you need to make sure it is rated for computer so you don't damage the power system.
