Here is another thing you can try. Unplug the power cord, and then remove the battery. Press the "Start" button and hold for 5 seconds. Replace the battery back into the computer and plug in the power cord. Start the machine and see if the low battery message still comes up. Sometimes the program that monitors the battery status gets confused. Doing the above should straighten it out. The Acer should start up and the AC power light should be lit. Look down in your task bar for the battery Icon or go to Battery Status in Control Panel and see if it shows that the battery is charging. Even newer batteries can go bad (rare) but if this is the case and a cell has shorted out in the battery, then your only recourse is exchange under warranty.

I think you will need to reflash your BIOS. You can find instructions here but it should work ok.

Where is buy a batterie for laptop look at a site www.elecachat.fr


The best place to buy a battery for your laptop is eBay. Once the site comes up just put in the search box something like Acer Aspire One battery. Click the link below and type in the search box "Acer Aspire One Netbook Battery" (without the quotes) and click Search. When the search results come back Select to only see the Buy It Now merchandise and Sort the list by lowest price first. The first couple of items will be ac adapter and power cord, but once you hit the prices in the $20 range you will start seeing the battery. Click the link below
to see a all the batteries.

http://www.ebay.com

The link below will take you directly to one that I selected that costs $23.99 including FREE Shipping. Please note that the battery fits the Acer Aspire One ZG5, A110, A150, D150 and the D250 which is your model.

My acer aspire one won't turn on (no lights) after doing firmware flash. When i plug in the power cord sometimes the battery status and power light flashes on.


Try accessing the vendor's page from another computer, saving the firmware update from there and then upgrading yours from a powerup, possibly using a CD as the USB device won't be powered yet, of course.

Can't find the equivalent model numbers for Aspire One ZG5


From ACER FAQs:

The Aspire One systems labeled with the model ZG5 are actually an Aspire One AOA110 or an Aspire One AOA150. Any information will be listed under AOA110 and AOA150, rather than ZG5.
The supportmodel number is located on the bottom of the netbook on a white label above the serial number. Alternatively, the support model number will be located in the BIOS which can be entered by pressing the F2 key when turning the netbook on. Once in the BIOS it will be under the Information tab to the right of Product Name

Acer aspire one model zg5 battery won't charge


I have exactly the same problem and am searching at the same time as you. I think you are wrong. I think the 150 is for the larger screen model. I think we need the 110.

I think it's this one that i found at acer-euro

ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/netbook/aspire_one_110/bios/v.3309.zip

but I'm afraid to use it (which is not to say I know how). Somthing about putting it onto a USB drive and running scripts. At least that's what they do with this problem on a 150

My acer aspire one zg5 wont turn on


I assume there is something wrong with power supply...Get an electric meter and test the adapter for dc output..I think the bit that connect to the laptop may be worn out and hence losing connection..Try to play with the adapter end when connecting to the laptop and hold on firmly on it and watched if any light comes on.If it stays for more than 2 sec the you know it is faulty..That is an alternate option is you don't have a meter..

My Acer Aspire one won't turn on.


I also have this problem with my Acer netbook.  I have only had it for 4 months and am in Turkey on an extended break at the moment.  I have taken the netbook to a dealer here and have been told the problem is the motherboard, verified by Acer themselves.  I am not happy with this as the netbook was not cheap and there appears to be a few Acer models with the same problem
