    that's one way to isolate the issue..

    nope..it's most likely inside in motherboard, where that function resides...

    could be time for a motherboard swap, which is not unlike doing heart surgery

    sure...that would make sense..the battery needs to be stood up on it's smaller side, so that the heat will dissipate, and the laptop should be raised at least 4 inches, on one of those products that provides air under the computer.

Remove the main battery and power supply charger adapter from the laptop, wait a few minute to get rid of any residual charge, now install the battery, power up! if no change remove battery, next plug the power supply back in, power on, if yes! the main battery is bad and needs replacement. If no change reply to this message so I can help you further. If you having low memory issues, the ram needs to be upgraded.

How do i check battery


Special equipment is necessary to check the battery of a laptop computer. The equipment will test the charging ability as well as the performance of the battery under the standard "load" of operating the computer. If yours is no longer holding a charge, or the charge lasts only a short period, it's very likely that the battery is simply worn out. Typically expect that if a battery is more than 2 years old, you'll be running out of life for it. Some batteries last longer, some much shorter. For example, Toshiba's Tecra series batteries seem to wear out and drain their charge quickly after about 6-12 months, needing a new battery.

If the battery is less than a year old, the manufacturers warranty may stipulate free replacement.

The Acer Aspire 5100 has been out since 2006. If yours is an older model, it may simply be time to replace the battery. You may find a local computer repair shop that will test your battery for free since it's very simple for them to do.

Hope this helps, good luck!

Low Battery life on Acer Aspire


I would first make sure that the AC is working. If the computer works on AC then it should be fine. I have had several batteries that lasted only a year. If you leave it plugged in all the time, that will do it. It is best to charge it and then use it on battery several times a week. Hope this helps some :>)

Acer aspire 5100 won't stay on when booting on battery


replace the battery. Batteries usually only last about two years and it sounds like it just cant hold any more juice. To find a battery go to google.com and type in the model of computer and push search. Sorry for the news but its an easy fix

Battery drains


This is most likely a bad battery. The battery has a built in discharge circuit that keeps the battery from draining when the machine is off. I'd say the this has malfunctioned, and that a new battery will fix the problem. Let me know.
