Question about Acer Aspire 5720-6661 Notebook PC
My Acer Aspire 5720 laptop won't charge while it's being used. It operates perfectly if it's kept on mains power when fully charged, and works fine off the battery, but when I let the battery run down and then try to connect it to the mains to charge it up while still working, it charges for a minute or so, then just kicks off the charger and the battery and power lights flash red. The battery and the AC adapter have been replaced, and I have updated the battery drivers but all to no avail. Is it a problem with the physical connection?
try removing the battery from the computer and turning on the computer to see if the power cord works correctly if it does inspect the battery and clean the terminals on the battery and computer and put the battery back in while it is still on now you should see the battery show up on the taskbar if not right click anywhere on the desktop and go to properties and than go to than go to screensaver than look towards the bottom and you will see power click on it and you should see the options for the battery ok sorry this was so long but i needed to explain it in full
please dont forget to rate this
best regards mike

Sounds like the ac adapter is too weak or the power jack is loose or bad.
