Remove the battery and see it the power comes on, if so bad battery, check the connector where the power plugs into the laptop, sometime this breaks or has a cold solder joint, you can test this by wiggling and looking to see if the power lights up. last and worst case is a bad main board.

My acer aspire starts up to the microsoft logo then turns off. i think the battery is dead because when i take out the power cord the battery light goes out. but should it still start with the charger...


If your battery is dead you can still use your laptop with the power cord connected and turned on
have you tried charging your battery for a couple of hours with out using the laptop just to see if the battery will charge and hold its charge for a while

many thaks

Acer aspire 5315 batt problem


Please run this unit on A/C only and see if it powers up like that. If it does not, then the A/C adapter is faulty and thus cannot charge your battery.

Service the battery by hitting it flat onto your hand palm or onto the back of your shoe and retry to see if it is charging.

I have an Acer Aspire 3610 notebook. It wont charge

How old is your battery? When you use your laptop, do you run it on just the battery or do you use your a/c adapter and battery? If you're going to use your laptop for an extended period of time, it's recommended to remove the battery and run off of a/c power alone. This helps to extend the life of your battery. Over time, using both a/c and battery will cause your battery to charge/discharge, which dramatically shortens the life of the battery.

You may simply have a dead battery.

Another alternative is that you have a bad power unit, which is what the a/c adapter plugs into on your laptop. My guess is that you most likely have a dead battery.

Battery will not charge on netbook

Sounds like it may be an internal problem with the charge system on the laptop, if you can run the laptop with the AC cord but it will not charge, I suspect the charge module is bad.
May have to return it for repair.

I have an Acer Aspire one model zg5- Power cord

Here is another thing you can try. Unplug the power cord, and then remove the battery. Press the "Start" button and hold for 5 seconds. Replace the battery back into the computer and plug in the power cord. Start the machine and see if the low battery message still comes up. Sometimes the program that monitors the battery status gets confused. Doing the above should straighten it out. The Acer should start up and the AC power light should be lit. Look down in your task bar for the battery Icon or go to Battery Status in Control Panel and see if it shows that the battery is charging. Even newer batteries can go bad (rare) but if this is the case and a cell has shorted out in the battery, then your only recourse is exchange under warranty.

Battery will not charge nor is able to use AC power to stay on.

Hi everyone it seems to me that the DC connector is loose inside your laptops,try wiggling it about gently at the charger to laptop cord nearer to the dc socket to verify this.Only solution is resolder or new dc socket.

Acer aspire 3500 wont hold charge or turn on

I had to buy an new ac/dc plug piece off of ebay (cost only like $3 bucks) to sodder onto the mother board of my Acer. Somehow the little plastic/metal piece you plug into your computer comes off the mother board really easy. Acer wanted me to purchase a whole new mother board (at frigging $350), which, frankly wasn't an option. So I bought the little plug gizmo, soddered it on, and I'm doing good now.
