Re: Acer Aspire

Usually that is a sign your battery is malfunctioning or needs to be replaces, Magda. Batteries only last so long, even if you PC is always plugged in. It can also be a sign the battery is overheating. Try removing the battery and unplugging it for about 30 min. Then plug in just the power, and start it up. Once it is fully into Windows, try putting the battery back in, so Windows can redetect it. You might also boot to bios, usually by hitting the Del, F!, F2, or F10 at startup, and unplugging the power. Let the battery drain till it shuts down the laptop, then plug it back in for 24 hoursl

Good Luck

Remove the main battery, it is probably loading the power supply down. If your computer starts up, replace the rechargeable battery.

No power. Adapter light flashes when connected to laptop

thanks for using fixya!!

Please do and observe the following:

1. Uninstall the battery pack.
2. Then, connect the AC adapter, we will try to use the power coming from the AC, then turn on your laptop.
3. Observe what will happen.
4. If still doesn't work, install again the battery, then connect the AC adapter, check if its going to work.
5. If not, perhaps you have a problem neither with the battery or the AC adapter.

I suggest that you bring your laptop to a service center. Good luck!

pls rate me positively! thanks!
