This is the problem because you don't have good ground line connection. Immediately check your ground line else your laptop may got damaged because of too much static.

My Acer Laptop not working

If it is not booting try this: Unplug the laptop from its power source and remove the battery. Then, hold down the power button for about 35 seconds. The computer isn't going to turn on, but what that will do is clear any static electricty off the board that commonly builds up on a laptop. After you've done that, put the battery back in and fire it up. If it doesn't start, let me know and we will work from there.

My laptop shuts off after i turn it on.why

Does your laptop even begin the boot process where it displays stuff on the screen? Do you hear fans running, disk drives running, see lights, hear the cd drive click once and notice a light that comes on the cd drive door briefly when you press the power button? If not you computer either has a bad power cord, a bad dc power jack where the power cord plugs in, a bad mother board or static build up. 1) lets eliminate static buildup by removing the power cord and the battery then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Then replace the power cord but not the battery and hit the power button. If it boots up you had static build up. 2) Take an ink pen and put in in the slot where the power cord plugs into the laptop, if it wiggles loosely then your dc power jack which is soldered onto the motherboard needs to be replaced. 3) If the power jack is tight and when you plug in the power cord if you don't see any lights or hear a fan, disc, cd drive, then you can almost bet your power cord is bad. 4) If the power cord is ok then you have a mother board issue. Normally motherboards will give some beeps or constantly blinking lights when you plug in the power cord and try to boot up. These beeps or blinking lights will tell the technician what is wrong with your computer.

How can i replace the power jack on my laptop without breaking the mother board?

Carefully remove the motherboard, while observing Anti-Static Precautions, and unplug the DC Power Jack Harness.

For the HP G60 series of Notebook PC's, and the Compaq Presario CQ60 Notebook PC's, the DC Power has a cable coming from it with a white male plug on the end.

Just unplug the cable from the motherboard, and remove the DC Power Jack from it's mount.

You have to remove the motherboard, in order to access the female socket on the motherboard, in order to unplug the DC Power Jack's cable.

The female socket is on the bottom of the motherboard.

This is a pictorial with simple instructions on how to remove the motherboard,

This is a Service Manual from HP Support,

The above is a PDF file. After you click on the link it may take up to 30 seconds to see the first page.
You will be viewing a blank white screen until it does.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.

(Took 39 seconds just now for the first page to come up, and the file was fully downloaded also)

1) Remove ALL power to the laptop. Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.

2) Observe Anti-Static Precautions.
You absolutely must wear an ESD wrist strap, and connect it's alligator clip to a good ground source.
{Electro Static Discharge}

Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.
Wearing an ESD wrist strap, and connecting to a good ground source, will relieve your body of Static, keeping your computer safe.

The average cost of an ESD wrist strap is around $3 to $12.
Here is a typical example of an ESD wrist strap,

3) Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove.
Mark each compartment for the area the screw/s come out of.

There may be as many as 60 screws, and 12 different types of screws.
Do Not mix them up!

If a multi-compartment container is not available, you can use a clean egg carton as a substitute.
Mark each egg holder.

4) Make notes and drawings as you disassemble.
If a camera or video cam is available I suggest you use it.
It's nice to have a record to come back to in case you are interrupted.

A Service Manual will only take you so far. Suggest you make a record.

It really is the best method to completely disassemble the laptop, down to the bare motherboard in your hand.
This way you can avoid breakage, and can also clean the inside of the laptop out, to include the Fan/Heatsink Assembly.

It is also a good time to THOROUGHLY, and properly clean the top of the Processor, the top of the graphics chipset, and the bottom of the two metal plates that sit on top of them, that are attached to the Cooling Tube.

Then properly apply fresh, new Thermal Paste.

Thermal paste dries up after time. Suggest while you have the laptop open that you replace it.
If you run into a Thermal Pad, remove it. They're JUNK.
{Not only that, but you can't reuse it anyway}

If you need help, or advice, post in a Comment.
I'll lead you through it.

Acer Aspire 4520. Fan died so I had to replace. Broke it down, step by step, before installing new fan and reassembeled no problem. Didn't even have any left over screws! But now it won't power on at...

1) Did you use an ESD wrist strap, and connect the alligator clip to a good ground?
(Electro Static Discharge)

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static will fry out, (Short Circuit) the hardware components in a computer.
You may not even see it, or feel it.
Your computer will. POOF! No computer, expensive door stop.

Static is generated by the movement of your clothes as you walk, or move around.
Static is generated when you walk across a carpet floor.
Static is generated by touching an object that contains static electricity, and the charge is passed onto you.
Just some of the ways static is generated in your body. (Or passed onto your body)

I connect the alligator clip to the metal frame of an empty desktop computer case.
Better method is to connect to an ESD anti-static mat. (A little unnecessary IMHO)

A Processor is the most susceptible hardware component to static shock.

2) If Anti-Static Precautions were observed, perhaps take a look at this pictorial disassembly guide, and see if you can remember anything you may have omitted. Perhaps a cable didn't get hooked up. Granted it's for an Aspire 4530, but should be the same in disassembly.

A) Power On switch/LED module get plugged back in?
B) CMOS (RTC) battery plugged back in?

Just some off the top of my head. Post back in a Comment, and we'll go from there.

Intermittent power supply, problems whit the jack, how I can change that? thanks, Ing. Elton Vargas

1) Check to make sure the problem isn't the cable going into the plug, from the AC adapter. (Charger)
A lot of times, where the wires meet the back of the plug, that goes into the laptop DC Power Jack, is bad.
The wires have a break from becoming stretched. Makes an intermittent contact.
Same thing for where the wires meet the charger body.

AC adapter plugged into power, unplugged from laptop, use a multimeter set to the DC voltage scale.
Use the alligator clip attachments for the probe leads, attach the probe lead's to the AC adapter's plug, and wiggle the wire, check for an intermittent break.

2) AC adapter (Charger) unplugged from laptop, Battery removed, see if you can wiggle the center pin of the jack.
You may find the entire DC Power Jack will move a little.

If the center pin does not move, but the entire body of the jack does, the jack may just need to be
resoldered to the motherboard. The solder connections may be cracked.
If the center pin moves, replace the jack.

To replace the DC Power Jack, or repair the solder connections,

1) Remove all power to the laptop. AC adapter and Battery.

2) Observe Anti-Static Precautions:
Buy and wear an ESD wrist strap. (Electro Static Discharge) Connect the alligator clip to a good ground source. I connect mine to the metal frame of an open, empty desktop computer case.
(You don't need an Anti-Static Mat)
The price of an ESD wrist strap is around $3 to $8. Found in a multitude of places.

3) Completely disassemble the laptop down to the bare motherboard in your hand.
No Processor, Heatsink assembly, peripherals, nada.

A) You may wish to take photos, or make a video as you disassemble, for your first time. Also make notes.
After the first laptop the next one becomes easier.
(All of them follow a basic path when disassembling. Toshiba, HP, Acer, Gateway, you name it)

B) Use a multi-container for the various screws. Label each container for the area the screws came out of.
There may be 60 or more screws, and 12 different types of screws. Some look VERY similar to each other, but are NOT. DO NOT mix them up.
You can use a clean egg container in a pinch. Label each egg holder.

C) Take your time, use patience. Practice your soldering, de-soldering skills before working on the Toshiba's DC Power Jack, if you're rusty.
Use Desoldering Braid, and not a Desoldering Tool. (Solder S-ucker) The desoldering braid works MUCH better! (Also known as solder wick)
