Question about Acer Aspire 3100-1405 Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop died!!! My laptop worked fine when I turned it off but now it will not come on at all. I have been told I may need a battery -do you know if all power goes through the battery even if it is plugged in? The cheapest battery I have found is 190.00 online, do you have any suggestions. My old Acer Aspire 3500 ran on battery power until it died. Toward the end, I had to hold the power cord into the back of the computer to get a charge, and then after a while, power no longer made it to the laptop. What do you suggest?

    My Acer Aspire 5002 WLMi is not getting any power. The week before it
    went completely dead, it seemed like there was a short in the power
    cord. While everything was plugged in, it would switch to the battery
    power. I would wiggle the cord and get it to change back to

    AC power. Then one day I left it on and plugged it in, and went out for
    the afternoon, when I came back it was off and would not turn back on.
    I tried to get any of the power lights to light up, but nothing. I
    replaced the power cord, and when i plug it in, the light on the brick
    goes off. The light on the brick on the cord is illuminated when it is
    plugged into the wall but when I plug it into my computer the light on
    the brick goes off.


    I thought that the battery had died and if I put a new battery in
    it might work. My sister has the identical computer, so when I was
    finally able to use her computer I put her battery in my laptop and my
    battery in hers. Neither her battery or her plug helped. Nothing
    lights up and it does not turn on. Her computer works on my battery-
    after her computer charged my battery. I moved my battery back to my
    computer and it still does nothing!


    Any thoughts, help or suggestions?

Heyo....if you have to litterally hold the plug at the back of the computer...you will need to have the jack wires fixed. There should be a light indicator showing that it is plugged in and recharging what you hold it....if that turns off if you let go, it is the jack....that is a flag to get it repaired.......or use a lot of duct tape. :-)

If the power supply does not run the laptop without the battery, then the problem is the jack in the laptop, over time the plug breaks free of the motherboard causing intermittent operation or no power. If the power supply runs the laptop without the battery, it is the charging circuits on the motherboard that is the issue.

Power issues on HP DV1000


It is possible you have two dud batteries. Recharageable batteries have a limited life, they have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles.
With the battery removed and only the power supply connected and the laptop powered up, when you touch the connector on the laptop and the laptop does not shut down then the laptop connector is OK.

If you can verify your new battery is OK the the fault could be the power supply adapter, if may not produce enought current to run and charge the battery. Try charging the battery overnight by turning off the laptop and leaving on the mains t charge. Borrow a mains adapter and test it on your computer.

You can also check the BIOS setting for power management, ie. hibernate, low power shut down etc.

More than a battery you may need a power adpter or you may need to fix something else. The laptop should work even with no battery inside when connected to power adapter. However, a faulty battery may prevent the computer from starting. Remove battery and try to start laptop with power connected. If it does not work you ll need to troubleshoot the problem further. If you need a cheaper battery or power supply you can try checking on ebay.

THe power controller in a laptop manages both AC power and battery. A laptop can power on without a battery as long as it is connected to the charger. That's because both battery and AC power have same power specifications. If the laptop fails to power from AC charger, then you may have an internal hardware failure. If no LED's flash, no light and no noise is made when you connect the charger, the problem is most likely to be a simple one, a faulty connector or something like. First of all, please specify me, what laptop model you have, and, exactly, what does it do when you connect the AC charger.
