Good morning!
Have you actually checked the output of the powerpack with a meter? Then, check your power input jack, where you plug in the power pack to the laptop. It may have come loose and need to be resoldered, or replaced.

Hello,

There are three possible reasons why your computer is experiencing this power problem. What you need to do is to isolate the component that's causing it.

These are the parts which should be checked:
1. Power supply
2. Battery
3. Motherboard of the laptop.

Here's the procedure that you have to follow:

1.
Remove the battery from the computer.

2. Power the computer up with the power cord only without the battery on it.

3. Check if it works perfectly without any problems even if the battery is out. If it works, then, the battery needs to be replaced. (Note: Batteries are disposable parts. They usually die after 2 years of usage depending on how you use it.)

4.If no go even without the battery on it, check the ac adapter or cord if there's a light lit on the box of the cord. If no lights on it, double check the connection. If connections seem ok but no power, then, replace the power cord.

5. If power cord seem fine, check the hole in the computer where you plug in the cord. What you need to check is if there are any sign of damages. Wiggle the cord and see if there are lights lit in the laptop.

I hope this help.

Acer 2480 2247 won't power up -no lights no nothing, pwr supply is not the problem,lid close switch isn't stuck ,pwr. on switch seems fine and power supply jack on motherboard is not broken


Remove the main battery and the power supply, allow several minutes to get rid of any residual charge, now plug the power supply adapter back in and press power "leave battery out" is there any change? if not! remove power supply, now! press and hold power for 60 seconds to reset the laptop. Next install main battery back in and the power supply adapter, power up! if no change, the motherboard is the problem.

Seems like this is the case of a bad power supply adapter, and needs to be replaced. But to make sure we are on the right track, you mention towards the last statement, you said that when your laptop is off, and the battery is installed on, and without the power supply, the computer power button would flash and no sign of life right? Well take these step to see if it is the power supply, 1, check to see if the small green light is lighting from the powersupply adapter. If it is not, then 100% you have a bad power supply. 2, does the laptop power on when using the power adapter only, and with the battery pulled out? If not, then 85% still is your power supply and the other 15% is your power jack, either is loose, or bent, as we tend to plug in and out alot. 3, Does the laptop power on with the battery itself without the power supply adapter? If it does, it is not your battery. The reason to the laptop power light blinking with the battery installed only could be that the battery is low/drain and does not have issufiect charge to power up your laptop. And to say that when your system is on and your plug in the powersupply, and the small battery icon says it's charging but actually it is not. It could still be your powersupply, it is damaged but a smart chip installed on your powersupply only sending signal to your laptop, this chip is only to prevent the battery from over charging. So if you have another power supply, you cna test this out. But at this point, they was you described things, I believe it to be the power supply. I hope this help, if you have any question, let me know.

1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
4. The power button could be bad.
5. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

Acer aspire 3610 power lead transformer green light is on before plugging into laptop then goes out when plugged in.acer has nothing working, totaly dead any ideas?


If the power LED is lit before connecting to your laptop and then goes out as soon as you connect to your laptop, then you either have a short circuit in the power supply module of your laptop, or you battery is causing the fault.

Remove the battery and try again. If it powers up the battery needs replacing. If the problem is still the same then you need someone to look at the power supply module in the laptop

Won't start - battery critically low


You should have a light on the notebook indicating that the power supply is plugged in (this should come on with or without the laptop being turned on). My acer has a green light for power, and the battery indicator shows amber for charging and green for full. If you are not seeing the power or charging indicators, you either have a damaged power jack, or a damaged power supply. Power supplies can be purchased usually for fairly cheap online, but if your power jack is damaged, the laptop will have to be serviced by a service center, or by someone who is skilled with a soldering iron and the disassembly and reassembly of laptops.

Acer aspire 3680 laptop will not charge while plugged in wall


It appears that you have faulty laptop power connector socket.
This is why it appears to work sometimes when you plug the connector into the laptop in some direction.
To confirm this, wriggle the connector while you look at the charge light on the laptop, if it blinks as you wriggle it then the power socket is either faulty or just needs resoldering so it will make proper electrical contact.
You can get a compute techo to do this or you can do it yourself but it requires dismantling the laptop completely to get at this power socket.
