Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook

1 Answer

My acer aspire 5315 doesnt charge properly.

I have an acer aspire 5315 laptop, and it plays up alot, but the most annoying recent problem is that when i plug my charger into the socket at the back of my laptop, alot of the time it doesnt charge. The battery light on the laptop lights up when the charger is inserted into the socket and is charging, but alot of the time when i insert the charger, it flickers on or off.
Im starting too wonder if its the socket on my laptop itself, or the charger thats faulty? The charger does wobble about in the socket abit, if i position it right it will charge, but it can slip and move which causes it too stop charging, so when im usinng the laptop it will turn off alot because it has ran out of charge even thought the charger is plugged in, and i havent noticed that it has slipped in the socket.
im really confused. and this is becoming a large problem.

    thankyou :) i was reallly stuck until today, i cant afford too take it too a repair shop at the moment, as my local one is very expensive, but my father is rather good with computers, not so much laptops though, but he claims if its come loose, a bit of solder too fix the pin back too its original place could be the answer too this problem, what do you think?

Hi,
I'm sorry to say that your initial fears are correct and the pin that the adapter connects to in the laptop is loose. This is a common problem with laptop's and can be easily dealt with.
Now I'm not going to tell you to open the laptop up and de-solder the adapter (unless you want me to).
Because this is a fiddly job and you have to order the correct adapter i recommend you take it to a reputable repair store and have them replace the adapter for you, don't let them tell you that you need a new motherboard as this is not the case at all, adapters can and do get regularly get fixed and is not that expensive.


Good luck.

    I'm sorry solder won't hold it as it's the pin in the middle which has come loose.
    You can order a replacement adapter on eBay, they cost no more than 5 dollars (2-3 pounds), you can order the part by your laptop model number.
    As soon as it comes all your father has to do is de-solder the old adapter and solder in the new one.
    Your laptop will then good as new.

Acer Aspire 5315 charging circut fuse


So you have removed the battery from this laptop for at least 30secs - 1minute? Not really sure about a laptop fuse? Test your DC jack for continuity - with a volt meter - outside prong and inside stem. Those will be the first few steps to finding your issue.

How to get my acer aspire 5315 to use google play apps


Hi.

You can't use Google Play apps on a laptop as the apps are designed for the Android operating system. Laptops only support Windows or Linux operating systems. However, you can download an app to the computer and transfer them to an Android device.

Ok i have had my acer aspire 5315-2326 for a year


try downloading the compatible acer aspire webcam software for your laptop. My laptop is also acer. It is aspire 4730z and it works perfectly fine. I think the software you are using is not compatible with your laptop.

Also most aspire models have lesser durability webcams. It gets really annoying when webcams of aspire won't work. I completely understand your situation.

Just follow my instruction and it will work perfectly fine.

Hangs up on the standby,hibernate,and shutdown screens


In my case with an Aspire 4710 it was the old or incorrect chipset drivers from the Acer site.
After downloading the proper new drivers from Intel all is fine.
