Question about Computers & Internet
It was updating all day yesterday, then went off and I can't get it to charge or come back on
Remove the battery and let the computer sit for about 5 minutes. Replace battery and plug in AC cord. Try to start computer. If the computer will not turn on, then chances are that your battery is fully uncharged. Check to ensure that the AC charger is working properly (voltage test with multimeter). If the AC charger is not working, you need to replace it. The laptop should work without a charged battery if the AC adapter is functioning properly.

Take it back to someone else. SMOKE is bad. Electronics tend not to work when you let the smoke out of them. Even tho the operating system may say its charging or that it is running off of mains power it may not be getting current to the battery to charge properly because the some has been let out of the components in the battery.
If you have troubles returning it simply tell the manager on duty that this is a Lithium Ion battery that may now be DANGEROUS to you and your loved ones. And is considered a letheal device according to the TSA that looks for Batteries that have been compromised.
Do not expect much from ACER, sorry, used to work in tech support here and ACER has not been known for quick helps. but complain to the manager where you got it and he may take it back in order to avoid a lawsuit from an EXPLODING battery.

Sounds like you may have an overheating issue with the processor. If it has gone on for some time, there could be damage to the processor and that is accounting for the short turn off time. If the system powers up on the battery alone, does it still shut off?, if you take the battery out and just attach the ac cord, does it shut off just as fast? If the unit has run hot for some time and not shut off there is a good chance it has dried the thermal grease on the processor or it has done irreperable damage to the processor itself and they may have to be replaced. First get some compressed air you would get at an office supply chain and using short bursts of compressed air, spray it in the vents, ducts, pull the cd tray out and blow air through the cd drive, open the bottom of the case and blow air in all the compartments. Blow air across the keyboard, but pay close attention to the heatsink, and it vent grills.

SOURCE: My laptop wont charge, why????
sometimes the heavy cable to the actual transformer becomes loose, it looks connected but isnt, try shoving it in firmly, maybe also look and see if its power light is on, if not change the fuse in the plug.

So confusing...Laptop AC Adapter nowadays has AUTOMATIC VOLTAGE, meaning it doesn't matter if it is 110v or 220v. Maybe you've got a FAULTY BATTERY. Remove the battery and plug in your AC Adapter to outlet and to your laptop and try to power-on.
