Question about Acer Aspire 5500 5570-2609 Laptop

1 Answer

Acer 5570Z......... Battery Reported as UNKNOWN!!!

Just bought this Acer 5570Z off eBay. The Laptop is in brand new condition and working well. However, it did not come with a battery, so I bought a brand new replacement battery for it. After charging the battery for 5 or 6 hours, it seems as though windows does not recognize it. If I unplug the AC adapter, the battery icon appears in the task bar as a fully charged battery, but it reads that the percentage of life left is unknown and then the laptop shuts off. Does anyone know why this might be happening? Is there a driver or something I need in order for windows to recognize the bttery? I am running windows XP SP2 and all else is fine and dandy. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

To break in a battery for Acer, you have to charge it up, then let it run down completely 3 times! The battery only has a 300 recharge life, so you must never leave it in your Acer when you are plugged in. Use it only when you need a battery, then take it out. Be sure to use it set for battery use, with minimum drain. only recharge it after it is exhausted. It sounds to me as if you bought a bum battery.. Call them, and ask for a replacement.

    PS: Acer has a battery monitor built in--Acer E-power management. Check to be sure that is working--it's in Acer Empowering Technology in your programs.

My ACER 5570z will not start up. When power cord


You most likely have a broken DC Jack on the motherboard. Thus, the battery cannot get a charge and the power supply is not making a connection to the system board because of the broken DC Jack.

Good Luck

I bought a new battery, laptop won't boot


The new battery is defective - It needs to be repacked. If you're still close enough to date or purchase(even for an ebay purchase), you should be able to do a swap.

I would recommend that you go on www.ebay.com and buy any fault laptop that takes a 14.1" screen ( assuming ur screen is that side) and either replacing it if u know how to or get a techincian to do it for you

Broken Screen


Hi,

Most screens can be bought online and not necessarily from Acer. You need to get the actual part number and it might surprise you that the screen was manufactured by a different company (mostly Taiwan). You can try here or ebay.

Screens would have series numbers like 5570-4765.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
