Acer laptop won't charge.

Grr. So, my Acer Aspire 3000 laptop has been having some really weird problems charging its battery. It used to be if you wiggled the cord around a bit, the charge light would come on, but now it's so finnicky that I have to push really hard on the part that goes into the port before I can turn it on. Is it shot? Is there some kind of fix for this?

When you finally get the charge light to come on, does the battery get fully charged? How long can it run while not plugged in?
A junker will not charge properly, or hold a charge for a short period of time. If this is the case, time to get a new battery.
If the battery seems to charge fine and the uptime is acceptable take a look at the charger and connectors, make sure their clean and free of debris. Maybe try to locate someone with the same charger and see if the problem continues (Some computer shops may have your charger)

Acer aspire m5 won't charge


it sounds like one of three things:

1. Battery itself no longer functions
2. Laptop Charger has inadequate amperage
3. The motherboard is defective (most likely).

If you have another battery, or a friend with the same battery, you can try that first (and someone else's laptop charger).

If the problem is the motherboard, you can try to have it repaired but I don't trust many companies to do this kind of work. I outsource my motherboard jobs to a company called Laptop Rescue (http://www.laptoprescue.com/laptop-repair-2/). Coincidentally, they also sell laptop chargers in case that's the problem. Hopefully it's just a charger or battery issue and not a motherboard.

Replaced the power board on acer aspire battery will charge to 28% overnight but charge nlight doesnt lightup


If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Battery not charging


As you have tried to replace battery and still new battery is not getting charged in this case it seems there is hardware problem. Circuit which allows battery to charge is not working.

Laptop won't charge while it is turned on


Have a look under your control panel for power options.
I'm using Vista but should basically be the same. Click on "Change when CPU sleeps"
Go into advanced power settings.Will prob give you option with your power plan. Mine
on high performance but you can change the others if you want.. Look under battery options
and see if you maybe have you battery option maybe turned off?? I've got a Acer Aspire 4920G
so it should be around the same operation. Let me know what come of it.

Battery not charging


Sounds like it may be the FSB. I had the same sort of problem, though my Aspire was only a few months old and therefore covered under Acer's warranty, but I also have after sales repair insurance too. Either way, I would strongly suggest that you get an engineer to take a look
