Question about Acer Aspire 5920 AS5920 Notebook

1 Answer

Acer Aspire battery shutting off with no warning.

I have a Acer Aspire laptop 5920 computer. It's only 18 months old. Recently the battery has been acting up. I have it on power saver. It went from 75% to 5% instantly and shut off with no warning, but still shows 3h45min on battery icon. When I plug in then I get warning and it shows the battery is depleted. What could be the possible cause of this? I would appreciate some help.Thank you, Karen

Karen,
I am not familiar with this particular model but deal daily with this same issue on the Lenovo Thinkpads...it is the battery. They can just go bad. Had one yesterday that was fine the day before, now won't hold a charge. It was also less than two years old. They seem to have a shelf life. I would check with ACER to make sure they agree, then order a new battery.

To extend battery life, you need to use the battery up on a regular basis, then recharge all the way. Leaving it plugged in all the time with the battery in shortens battery life.

Hi i recently bought a 5920 acer laptop ,i used it for couple months ,while using it one day i pluged in the charger and left the room for couple minutes only to dicover it was not on anymore since then...


sounds like power pack. Look for your warranty papers. Or, call ACER in your country and arrange repair (might also be the laptop itself). They can arrange pick up and repair under warranty.

Acer Aspire 5580 poor battery


Its time for a new battery. After a period of time of using a battery, the amount of charge it can hold depletes. Even if you always have it plugged in. Usually, batteries only last 18-24 months which is sad, seeing how much they cost. I'm a computer tech and see this problem everyday first hand. The best thing you can do is buy a battery from eBay and save yourself a bunch of money. Local retail stores charge up to 3 times as much for a battery. Good luck and I hope this helps..... :>)
