Question about Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook

1 Answer

Could I have damaged my Aspire by using a 19v 75w adapter in place of its own 19v 65 one? Or is it more likely that the plug simply doesn't fit to power the machine?

The plug does not fit. An extra 10w is well within the acceptable tolerance.

Here below are possible causes and troubleshooting steps of laptop that can't power on, hope it may help:
Possible causes:

1. AC adapter failure.
2. Power jack failure.
3. Motherboard failure.

Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solutions:
1. Test the AC adapter with a digital multimeter. It's possible that you have a failed AC adapter. If you don't have a multimeter, test your laptop with another known good AC adapter.

2.It's possible that power jack (socket where you plug the AC adapter) is broken. Remove the motherboard and take a closer look at the power jack. In some cases you can fix the jack by resoldering it on the motherboard. In other cases you have to replace the jack with a new one. Using a multimeter, test if the power goes to the motherboard through the jack.

3. If replacing the AC power adapter and jack on the motherboard doesn't help, most likely you have a bad motherboard. Replace the motherboard.

2 ac adaptors have stopped working on acer laptop


Take the battery out. Unplug the charger from the computer. Press the On button for 30 seconds. Then plug the charger in. If it works, then put the battery back in and you're in business again.

If it still can't work, perhaps the charger you bought is a dead one, just contact the seller to get a replacement one after all you have used it for about a few minutes. If you don't believe in that seller, just contact them for the refund and go to other vendor for a new adapter. I recommend the following one for you:

Acer aspire 5332 plugged in but not charging


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).

Take the battery out. Unplug the charger from the computer. Press the On button for 30 seconds. Then plug the charger in. If it works, then put the battery back in and you're in business again.If it doesn't work, the most likely cause is the laptop charger. Use a new one to confirm:

Toshiba satellite L305-s5955 will not power up


If there is no power light and it can't charge your laptop, it is likely that the charger is dead. You need a new laptop charger. So try a new adapter to confirm the real issue.

There are two kinds of ac adapters for your toshiba l305-s5955

Toshiba Satellite L305 AC Adapter 75Watt 19V 3.95A

Toshiba Satellite L305 AC Adapter 90Watt 19V 4.74A

You should choose the right charger depending on your original adapter's specification. If the original one need 90w, you won't buy 75w that will bring damage to your laptop. If it needs 75w you can use 90w too.

Can i open this adapter and check whether there is any problem with the hardware which can be fixed or not ?


This can be opened but it is not designed to be opened and serviced. If you have the correct voltage coming out it is good. Test for DC voltage at the end that plugs into the computer. If the voltage isn't correct check for AC voltage using a voltage tester at the plug and the cord that connects the power adapter to AC source. This is very important, DO NOT CONFUSE THE TWO TEST, this can cause injury and damage test equipment. If AC voltage is present but the adapter is not converting it to DC it is best that you simply replace the unit.

You do not have to be worried about the wattage. Wattage (in the case of chargers) is the capacity a charger can provide. So higer the wattage better it is. However, higher the wattage higher the price usually. Voltage has to match. But the most important thing to look for when you buy a universal adapter is the polarity. Take care to match the polarity. Polarity will be represented by a small line encircled by a circle with + AND - . If you look at it carefully you will understand that it is trying to tell you what polarity is the inner lead and the outer lead. You will see this marking on the charger and also on your laptop close to the DC in. (Usually the inside lead is positive and the outside lead is negative) However some manufacturers reverse this. (I have no idea why they do it though I think some kind of regulatory body should make a standard to avoid unsuspecting users from frying their devices). If your voltage and polarity is matching you are good to go with 65 watts or above. If this holds good, don't worry about any listings.

Toshiba a100 not starting on


Try removing the battery, and AC power, and pressing the power button down for about 15-20 seconds, and then try powering on the computer with just the AC power plugged in (no battery installed). If this works then the battery may be shot, and would need to be replaced (if you can find a suitable replacement). If it doesn't, then I would advise bringing the unit to an authorized service center to have the AC Adapter tested with a voltmeter (unless you happen to have one). The power adapter should give off a voltage of approximately 19V. If it's not, then you may simply have to replace the power adapter, either with one specifically for your model of laptop, or with a Universal AC Adapter (and you will probably need a rating of at least 75W, 90W would be optimal). If the power adapter tests okay though, then it most likely is the power coupling (the hole where your adapter plugs into. Repairs to those can usually range anywhere between $150-$300 USD for parts and labour). Hope this gives you enough information to work with, and hopefully gets your issue resolved!

Any 19V 4.7A adapter with a plug that fits the jack will work regardless of what it looks like. Radio Shack sells adapter plugs that will fit any jack if you cannot find the exact HP replacement.
