    My acer laptop was working fine and then shut down for no reason, so I restarted it again and was doing fine then it shut down for good... when I press the power button, the battery light is orange and flashes then goes out but thats all it always does. The laptop has been not working since yesterday afternoon! I tried removing the battery and pluging the power cord into the laptop but it does nothing for me, so I put the battery back in its place and plugged in the power cord and nothing still... it will not turn on at all! I need help...its a new laptop just purchased Jan 08 but I dont have the reciepts no more so I cannot return it for service!

I ordered an Acer aspire AC/Adaptor 1410-2037, 1410-2497. I later found mine is a 1410-8373 but they already mailed the adaptor Will this AC/Adaptor work with mine or if so without any problems?

There are two possible problems with the one you are getting versus the one you need. The first is power issue. The one you are receiving is rated at 30 watts 1.58 amperes. The one you need is listed as 40 watts 2.1 amperes. If you needed the smaller one and got the bigger one, it would not have been an issue, The device will only draw what it needs. Unfortunately, you may find that this one will run very hot and may fail quickly. The other issue is that the tip that goes into the laptop maybe different in size than the one you need. Yours has a rather small inside diameter compare to some others. Check carefully, but I would recommend getting the correct one rather than using the one you are going to get.

My Acer aspire 5750z wont turn on. I have plugged the AC adaptor in and all I get is a nlue light a the from of the laptop. If I take the battery out adn then plug in the adaptor, I don't get an

I have several starting problems with my Acer Aspire. To start with,my On Switch doesnt work so I removed the strip cover and use a matchstick (the non-red end) to push the round black dot in a small square at the extreme top right- hand corner above the keypad. Sometimes it's my adapter lead which works with other laptops so I figure it must be the laptop connection. I keep wiggling the adapter lead close to the laptop connection and push it in hard. My lead is the rotating kind so I try very hard not to move it once connected. Also because I"ve removed the start cover. I have to softly clean the connectors at the top lefthand side and the right.
Hope one of these things help you and you don't have all three problems as I do.

2 ac adaptors have stopped working on acer laptop

Take the battery out. Unplug the charger from the computer. Press the On button for 30 seconds. Then plug the charger in. If it works, then put the battery back in and you're in business again.

If it still can't work, perhaps the charger you bought is a dead one, just contact the seller to get a replacement one after all you have used it for about a few minutes. If you don't believe in that seller, just contact them for the refund and go to other vendor for a new adapter. I recommend the following one for you:

It could be an AC adaptor issue.

It should boot when connected directly to the power outlet through the laptop adaptor. If it is not boot, then the adaptor might not be supplying the needed power to boot it up.

If it is possible, try to isolate the issue. Charge your new battery using another laptop. Then plug it in your laptop to see if it works. If it will work, then it is the AC adaptor of your laptop that is defective. If the charged battery still won't make the laptop boot, then there is something wrong with your laptop hardware. If could be a motherboard issue of your laptop.

Acer 1410 can't turn on with cord plugged in

The battery isn't charging, from what you describe. Sounds like a bent pin, or a bad charging circuit. Waranty should cover, unless it was dropped or 'abused,' assuming that it was a new present. Take a quick look at the battery connection.

Says plugged in not charging

Take out the battery and make sure you can turn on the laptop with just the AC Adaptor hooked up.

If you can then you know the AC Adaptor is good. Try another known good working battery in the laptop, if the battery charges then you know that the old battery is bad.

If the laptop doesn't charge with a know working battery or a new one then you know that the motherboard is bad.

Acer Aspire 2920 won't turn on, although plugged in with battery

First of all, what I'm about to tell you are general troubleshooting techniques - I make no claim that they will fix what you describe, but they may help lead you to a solution.
  1. Unplug the AC adapter and remove the battery
  2. Plug in the AC adapter and attempt to power on the laptop
  3. If it doesn't power on, see #6 below. If it does power on, but doesn't boot the OS, restart - pressing [SPACE] as the first Windows splash screen appears. When prompted, choose to delete the hibernation file and start a system boot.
  4. Shut the system down, disconnect the AC adapter, reinsert the battery, and attempt to power the laptop. If it doesn't start we know, at the very least, there's a battery problem.
  5. Plug in the AC adapter. If it shuts down immediately, or won't power back on after a shutdown. . .
  6. . . .there's a problem with the system board, probably the ciruitry associated with charging the battery.
I hope you 'see the light'. Good Luck!
