The inverter/ piower regulator board on the laptop is going.. either find another on ebay, or be prepaired to do some board-level bad capacitor hunting.. Oh well, you can always try car batteries if really desperate.. a 12 and a 6v <Yipe, that's really backwoods>

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.

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!

Laptop stoped working


I have an Aspre 3680 as well, and a flashing adapter light is not a good sign, I suggest you get a multi meter and test for to make sure you are getting the 19 volts output that are required to run the laptop and charge the battery.

My goal is to provide you with a helpful fix ya solution, if you found this advice helpful please rate it as Fixya, thanks

Acer Aspire 3680 2682 will not power up


there are some reasons laptop can't power on, try to troubleshoot.
1. Make sure that your ac adapter is working. if you plug battery and ac adapter, the battery chargin led will be orange and if the battery is full, the led will be yellow.
2. Can you power on using battery ? if you can and you can't power on using ac adapter (i assume your ac adapter is working). the problem will be your power port.
if you can't power on using battery and your battery is working ok. the problem will be motherboard.

My charger won't work so now my computer wont turn on


Unplug you ac adapter from the wall and plug a lamp in to verify that the wall plug is working correctly. Pick up the adapter to see if it feels warm. Most adapters will feel warmer than room temperature if they are working,
If the cords on your adapter can be unplugged from the adapter, reseat them. Try the ac adapter in another wall plug to see if it comes on. The adapter may have an LED on it that indicates whether or not it is on. If it doesn't, about the only way to check it is to use a multimeter to see if there is any voltage on the plug that goes into the back of the laptop. If something else will work in the original wall plug and the adapter won't work in another wall plug, you will need to obtain another ac adapter.
Once you've tried these things, let me know and we'll go from there.
Thanks!
