Acer aspire one netbook battery won't charge

Battery light stays orange. Computer works when plugged in and battery removed. The power cord icon is in the system tray instead of the battery icon. I haven't used the computer much since I got it six months ago.

Hi
i hv read your problem and it is surely the case of gone battery.
There are two solutions to this problem.
1. replace the battery with a new one.
2. recharge your battery (bt it is not a good choice as the battery will work fine for some time only).

and one very important thing i would like to suggest that if you are working with your system with power cord connected please remove the battery as the back voltage will effect some IC's.

if you find the solution helpful please give me good rating
thnx

    I have an Aspire One (AOA 150 1283 ZG5) with a non charging battery issue. I went to the Acer site......downloaded the Bios update..... the unit restarted on its own and the problem was fixed.
    MAKE SURE YOU EXTRACT THE FILES AND READ THE INSTUCTIONS!!!!!
    Although I never use the little critter at least I know it will work if I ever do use it.

How to turn on my Toshiba satellite L305D-S5974, YESTERDAY IT WENT DEAD AND NOW I GOT THE CHARGER BUT ALL I SEE IS AN ORANGE LIGHT BLINKING BUT IT STILL STAY OFF NO FAN,NO SCREEN AT ALL, HELP PLZ


Remove the power cord and remove the battery. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds... no less... Put the battery back in and plug in the power cord. Try to start it.

If it doesn't work, try again without the battery, just the power cord.

If that doesn't work neither, remove the power cord, and leave it without the battery or power for a couple hours. 3 minimum.

Put everything back and try to start it up again.

Good luck.

Swap out the ram one at a time testing to see if you can power up, making sure there is one in the memory slot at all times, if this works the piece in your hand is defective, no difference! the motherboard has major issues.

hello

shut down computer - unplug power cord from laptop - remove the battery from laptop - plug Ac adapter into computer and Ac outlet (wall)
turn on computer
if computer does not turn on, replace the AC adapter and cord - then place battery back into computer
plug in new Ac adapter and cord - recharge battery - if orange light stays on after 4-6 hours of charging battery, you need new battery as well - replace battery, charge it up and it should be fine

if you have attempted these steps before and no change occurs, then you may have issue with power connection in computer - locate a service centre to replace power connection on computer

My power cord doesn't seem to be charging. It is orange instead of green. My battery is totally out of juice but nothing is happening.


Your power adapter may have stopped working, and needs to be replaced. If that's the problem, then the power adapter would not send any charge to the laptop.

You should take the Laptop to an Apple Store for them to test.

If you still have a warranty, you should get a new one. If you don't have a warranty, you should be able to buy a new adapter online for 20-30 dollars.

This sounds like a battery problem. The best way to test this is to remove the battery and then power the laptop up with just the power cord plugged in but no battery. If the computer boots then the battery is bad you will need a replacement. Also try letting the battery charge for a day. Be sure that the charging light is coming on when you have it plugged in.
