Acer Aspire 5100

Last night, out of nowhere, my Acer Aspire 5100 stopped responding to a perfectly fine charger. Now, I can power it on, but the screen does not light up. The charger works if i hold it in a certain position. The laptop's fan just turns on. Whats wrong with it and how can i fix it???

Sounds like the power jack is loose if you have to hold it in a certain position. As for the screen your inverter might be shot. Try connecting an external monitor to your laptop and see if you get a display.

The problem might be the power supply charger that plugs into the laptop, unplug the charger and run the laptop on battery power, is the high pitch sound there when you power up? if this solves the problem, it is the power supply charger that is the cause.

Remove your battery and power adapter. Now hold the power button for 10 seconds. This will drain any charge that had accumulated. Now try powering on your computer with the battery or the power cable.

Acer Aspire 5100 Red Battery Light


The Aspires should have no issue booting without the battery installed. Have you done a static reset? (i.e. hold the power switch for 20/30 seconds without power or battery in) And the voltage range on the Aspire 5100 should be +19v - +20.5v on the inner part of the connector so it might be worth checking that the power adapter is outputing correctly.
If it works without battery, then it can be checked by testing the voltage between pins 1 and 6 on the battery (the ones either end) and should be 7.5v or above if the battery is charging correctly.
Hope that gives you a starting point, if you've done all those things already then appologies and best of luck with it.
