Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop
I posted about my 3680 not charging and i got a solution that the batteries are lithium ion and tend to lose charging abilities and that i need to replace them. I understand this but would the batteries cause the computer not to charge ONLY while its turned on? Because it charges perfectly while it is turned off.
Ok " new batteries would be a cool Idea, but did ya know you can set your laptop for desk top mode and laptop mode, desktop uses more power , laptop conserves power .
go to control panel look for power management.

Frequent Charging Shortens Battery Life
Frequent charging shortens the life span of a Lithium ion battery. Batteries should be charged only after they expend all their power.
Switching batteries helps preserve battery life: If a cell phone or computer user puts in a spare battery while separately charging the primary Lithium ion battery, that helps extend the life of both batteries.
Most laptops charge the battery when a user plugs in the AC adapter. Users can adjust this setting by changing the power options. Windows places this option in the Control Panel, while the Gnome Linux desktop places power options under "Administrative Tools". Cell phones incorporate their own power-saving features that the user usually cannot control.
When to Replace a Lithium Ion Battery
If a laptop battery does not hold a charge for more than a few minutes, a user must replace the Lithium ion battery if he wants to use the computer without an AC adapter.
Other Ways to Extend Battery Life
Storing a battery in a cool, dry environment causes a lithium-ion battery to last a little longer and reduces the frequency of needed battery replacements.
hope this helps
