My headphone jacks doesn't work on my 5517. How can I replace soundcard?

You cannot replace the sound card as it is integral to the mainboard, the only way to resolve the issue is to replace the mainboard, but you could always try taking the laptop to a reputable repair tech who may be able to re-work the headphone socket.

Acer aspire one charging port loose

If I recall this model line uses a fixed DC power jack directly soldered to the main board. When they become loose, you can visually inspect the jack itself (without the cord plugged in), and use a pen or probe to see of the center peg is excessively loose. The common result is the solder connections have been broken between the DC jack and the main board. Often the jack itself needs to be replaced (involving complete disassemble, de-soldering old jack, cleaning, repair PCB if needed, and re-solder new jack in place.
TIP - if it is not charging, remove battery, and gently put pressure from different angles with the power cord plugged in, and try to turn it on. If it turns on with pressure from a specific angle, it would indicate the DC jack is indeed loose, and likely needs to be replaced. It works becomes the pressure is making the electrical contact that has other wise been broken. ALSO, if it turns on easily, yet losses power at certain angles, its a similar issue.
TIP2 - If it still indeed charges regardless of the angle, and does not lose power, it may be a "Modular" DC jack, meaning the jack connects to the main board through a wire harness, and is less prone to breaking the electrical contacts, and the jack is simply loose inside it's retaining clips/slides. Minor disassembly and hot glue are quick fixes for this since usually the plastic clip/slide in the chassis have broke.

Acer aspire 5740 no power


It sounds lie the charger jack in the laptop is broken. When you installed the new battery the laptop had power to run several hours but once the battery drained it could not be charged back up. Check the charging jack when the charger plugs into. I would bet that you will find to loose or broken. These jacks can be replaced but you will need to take the laptop apart and do a little soldering to do the job. Check Ebay for the jack, you can do a search for your model laptop along with "power jack", the parts should run less than $10 with shipping.

My acer aspire 4740g does not power on. i have removed the battery and directly connected to the power supply but still does not turn on.

Problem description:
The laptop is completely dead. When you plug the AC adapter and press on the power button, nothing happens. The laptop has no signs of life at all. None of the LED lights is working.
Possible cause:
1. AC adapter failure.
2. Power jack failure.
3. Motherboard failure.
Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution:
1. Test the AC adapter with a 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.

Acer Aspire 5735 will not turn on. Period. The orange light will not come on and even when I plug it up nothing.

The first thing to do is make sure your adapter is providing the correct voltage. Even if the green light is on for the adapter you need to actually test the voltage at the end where it plugs into the computer. Use a DC voltmeter. The outside of the plug is the negative (ground) and the inside is the positive. You should read anywhere from +19V to +20.5V. If the voltage is not correct, replace the power adapter. If the adapter is good then check and see if the power socket where the power adapter plugs into the computer is solid. The internal jack is held in place by some fairly flimsy plastic and may have broken loose. If it is loose then there is a good chance that the jack has a wire that broke loose. Repairing that requires that you disassemble most of the computer to get to the jack and then do some soldering. Take it to a repair shop if you are not comfortable doing this.

Hi,My acer aspire 3682WXMi isn't starting up at all when plugged in. I've had it 2 years,can anyone help

I need more information to determine the fault. Is the charge LED on when you plug in the power adapter? Does the hard disk spin up when you boot up? Can you get into the BIOS setup? Can the BIOS detect the hard disk? Have you reseated the RAM module/s?

Aspire One NO turn on at all

You need a DC Jack Repair/Replacement..
your dc jack is the port where your AC Charger plug plugs in to on the laptop.. They can Short out over time and the solder that connects the positive/negative pins burns off which causes the power to short out ... which in turn cuts off power connection to the laptop and can cause motherboard damage if not repaired..
