Question about Acer Aspire 5100-5033 Notebook

1 Answer

My acer aspire 4520 would also just turn off by itself without warning. i usually remove the battery, put it back in and check with the charger. usually it doesnt boot up either, i have to guess or tinker around with the battery or charger, time consuming and very very inconvenient. its very frustrating, i don't know what to do as well. but if you're having this kind of problem, then i think acer should investigate on this as well.

DO A POWER RESET.

take out the battery unplug the power adapter, then hold down the power button for 30 seconds.
after youve done that plug the ac power adapter in leaving the battery out.
press the power button.
after successful power up shut down n insert the battery.

My Acer aspire 4520 windows vista laptop is locked. can someone helph me? to change my user name and password. I forgot my password.


Hi there, this may work, try this.

Take off laptop battery, remove power cord, turn laptop upside down.
Just take off screws on the covers you see, which let you see HDD, Memory,Wireless card,.... ,
take off the cover or check on line for service manual for your specific model on how to remove the plastic cover/ covers, which is covering the CMOS battery which is some time wrapped up with yellow tape. Just remove the battery by holding on the white connector which attached to the motherboard with black and red wires. Gently pull from the motherboard.

Now without the CMOS battery, connect power cord and turn on the laptop, it should turn on. Now turn off , remove the power cord, check voltage on battery , it should measure very close to 3volt (2.5 to 3.0 volt), otherwise get a new one, connect the battery, put back covers, and now you set a new password.

Aspire 4520 not power on


Hi,

Im very sorry to hear that, please follow these simple steps for you to be able to isolate the exact problem.

1. Removed the battery.

2. Connect the laptop directly to the power outlet without using the battery just for the meantime.

3. Turn on the laptop. If the laptop is able to power on, that means that the AC adapter is working fine as well as the DC port. If the laptop is not able to turn on, it maybe the AC adapter itself or the DC port.

4. Try to use another AC adapter if possible, make sure that that AC adapter is working fine. If the laptop is still not turning on, the problem is with the DC port itself. In that case, you will need to replaced the Motherboard itself.

Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...

Battery indicator keeps fluctuating to 4hrs to 6hrs back to 4hrs then 8hrs every 5 mins or so i have acer A0532H with windows 7


first of all let me ask how old is the battery, if it`s new-discharge the battery until pc shuts down itself because of low battery, remove the battery , unplug AC charger from laptop, wait for 5 minutes, then hold power button for 5 full seconds, wait another 5 minutes, then put battery and ac charger on , don`t turn on laptop yet, wait until battery indicator shows that battery fully charged, then remove AC charger, and turn on laptop. P.S. you can try this on old battery too, but usually worthless, because old batteries are not recognizable by system currectly ..

Power switch will not start laptop without first removing the battery pack then locking it back in place.


Once you have the laptop started, you need to download the acer battery checker program. The battery may be bad.

It's also possible the laptop is going into hibernation mode and for some reason isn't coming out of it when you hit the power button. You can turn this mode off in windows under power settings.

Acer aspire laptop won't charge


Hi,
First of all you have to determine whether it's the battery, charger or the laptop itself.
Remove the battery and boot the laptop on AC power only, if the laptop boots up you can rule out the charger and the laptop, you may need a new battery if that is the case.



Regards.
