Sounds like a fried battery. Unfortunately, they are not covered by warranty. If you buy a new one, get a lithium - or it'll just fry again.

How long for battery recharging D610 ?


when the computer is turned off, the AC adapter charges a completely discharged battery to 80 percent in about 1 hour and to 100 percent in approximately 2 hours. Charge time is longer with the computer turned on. You can leave the battery in the computer for as long as you like. The battery's internal circuitry prevents the battery from overcharging. So About 2 to 3 hrs

When you connect the computer to an electrical outlet or install a battery while the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the computer checks the battery charge and temperature. If necessary, the AC adapter then charges the battery and maintains the battery charge.
If the battery is hot from being used in your computer or being in a hot environment, the battery may not charge when you connect the computer to an electrical outlet.

My acer wont start up


Acer laptops allow you to take your work and entertainment on the go.

You can work on a presentation during a long flight or watch a DVD in the middle of a park.


Acer laptops can do this because they are powered by batteries, allowing the laptop to run without having to be plugged into a power source.


Normally, the battery can be recharged by plugging the laptop back into a power socket.


But certain problems can keep the battery from charging.

Electrical Connection


For laptops to charge, they need to be connected to a power source.


Although it may look like you have the cable plugged in correctly on the Acer, make sure that the cord is firmly plugged into the power socket.


There should be a light on the Acer keyboard as well as a power symbol on the taskbar for your operating system that tells you whether the laptop is running off electrical or battery power.


If it is plugged in, make sure that this icon shows that it is on electrical power.


Also check the socket where the Acer is plugged in and make sure that it isn't turned off at the main circuit breaker.


Battery


Turn the Acer over and make sure that the battery is properly placed in the battery compartment. Most laptops will have locks that keep the battery securely in place.

These locks can sometimes come loose.

Use a piece of strong tape as a temporary measure to keep a loose battery in place.


Clean the terminals on the battery to ensure that there is a good connection.

Remove the battery from the battery compartment.

Apply rubbing alcohol to a lint-free cloth. Rub this cloth over the shiny metal terminals on the battery.

Over time, batteries lose their ability to be recharged.

If neither of the aforementioned steps works, you may just have a bad battery.


Check with Acer or other vendors to find a replacement for your model.


BIOS Update


The BIOS (Basic Input Output System) controls a number of basic functions for a computer, such as assigning the hard drives and other system functions.



The BIOS also controls the battery charging function.

Certain Acer models have a bad BIOS that operates the computer normally but doesn't charge the battery.


To solve this problem, you need to perform an operation called Flashing the BIOS where you download a new version of the BIOS and upload it to your Acer.


Check on the Acer support site to see whether your computer model could possibly be affected by this.


Adapter


The power adapter, the part that plugs into the Acer from the power socket, can go bad.


Check for a power light on the adapter.


If the light is not lit, you probably have a bad adapter.


Replacement adapters can be purchased from Acer or other online vendors.

Low battery warning


Take the battery out, plug in the charger and see if the laptop works.
If it works, the battery may be the problem.
Check the AC Adapter
Check to make sure the adapter is plugged securely into the wall outlet, connected firmly to the adapter box and to the back of your laptop.
Most AC adapters have a little light in them on that rectangular box in the middle of the cord that lights up when it's getting electricity.
If that light isn't on, try a different outlet.
Check your fuse or circuit breaker box and plug a different device into that outlet to make sure there is power to it.
If it still does not light up, your adapter could need replacing.
Also check the adapter box for signs of warmth, as it will generate heat when it's plugged in. No heat means no power.

Remove the Battery Sometimes it's as simple as a seated battery.
Remove the battery entirely and clean out any dust, lint or hair that may be clogging the connectors and preventing a proper connection.
Reseat the battery securely and make sure the little locking pins that hold your battery in place are securely fastened and there is no movement.
Fix a Broken Laptop Charger
If your laptop charger seems broken, it's most likely because the battery will not charge.
You plug in the cord, the lights come on, but the charging light doesn't change or blinks repeatedly.
When you remove the power cord, the laptop shuts off instantly due to the depleted battery. There's more than one cause for this, and it's not always a broken charger.

Check the connection between the charger and the laptop.
It should fit firmly in the DC jack without wiggling.
If it is loose, use electrical tape to hold it in place so the charger can receive power.
This is a temporary fix, however, because a faulty connection can create sparks and cause a fire or injury.
A loose connection will just get worse over time, so have it sent to a DC jack specialist as soon as possible.
Turn off the laptop and flip it upside down. Locate the latch that secures the battery and slide open.
The battery should pop out; give it a tug if it doesn't.
Apply a small amount of rubbing alcohol (Methylated Spirits)to the tip of a cotton swab and use it to clean the battery's connectors.
Dirt can build up and interfere with the connection, giving the appearance of a broken charger. Let the alcohol dry completely and re-insert the battery.
Slide the latch to secure it and plug in the power cord to test it.
See if the laptop powers on with the charger only and battery removed.
If it does, the battery is the likely culprit and should be replaced.
If the charger is truly broken, the only thing to do is to replace it or the power cord attached to it. Look on the bottom and write down the part number.
Call the laptop manufacturer for a replacement charger or search for the part number on eBay.
If you purchase from anyone other than the original manufacturer, ask for genuine parts to reduce the possibility of problems.

I have an Acer aspire 4530 laptop. When I power it on it just keeps clicking like it wants to power up but never does


the clicking noise could be your operating system trying to connect to your computer and cant find it because of a faulty connection

test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?

even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause this problem follow the troubleshooting procedure a computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every device and to have an end to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working

also check your computer ram and cmos battery to make sure they are securely seated and the battery has plenty of charge

hope this helps

Just bought a second hand acer travelmate 4200. I have never owned a lap top. How do I change from using battery power to outlet power


On the left side, towards the rear is a DC jack. Plug the power cord in there. It should automatically start operating on AC power, and charge the battery.

Is there any way to charge an ACER computer battery other than through the computer. The computer has a burned out recharging jack. Can you recharge it through a USB port.


No, not through a USB port.

Can you find a similar ACER computer for "cheap" on eBay?
It would not need to run -- it just has to accept the identical battery,
and connect to an AC adapter, and to charge the battery,
even when the laptop is powered-off.
