My acer laptop 5920 just went off and now won't

My acer laptop 5920 just went off whilst using it with the mains adapter connected and now won't power up at all. Now the light on the power adapter is steady when not plugged into the laptop but flickers when it is plugged in. Is this a battery or an adapter problem?

I have the same problem.
Have a look at PR8 which is located on the mother board near the 4 pin plug from the AC adaptor.
Mine was burned out and the best I could work out was tat it was a 20 ohm resistor. See if yours is burned out also and let me know what value you identify if your able to.
I am suspecting one of the regs, diodes or fets in that region.
Has any one else got any ideas?

My Asus Laptop won't turn back on, there is a chemical smell, and my adaptor green light brinks


Here below are possible causes and troubleshooting steps of laptop that can't power on, hope it may help:
Possible causes:

1. AC adapter failure.
2. Power jack failure.
3. Motherboard failure.

Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solutions:
1. Test the Acer Aspire 5920 ac adapter with a digital multimeter. It's possible that you have a failed AC adapter. If you don't have a multimeter, test your laptop with another known good AC adapter.

2.It's possible that power jack (socket where you plug the AC adapter) is broken. Remove the motherboard and take a closer look at the power jack. In some cases you can fix the jack by resoldering it on the motherboard. In other cases you have to replace the jack with a new one. Using a multimeter, test if the power goes to the motherboard through the jack.

3. If replacing the AC power adapter and jack on the motherboard doesn't help, most likely you have a bad motherboard. Replace the motherboard.

Acer 5920 will not power up how do u test the battery. charger seems fine so not sure how to procide


First of all, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether.

Acer 5920 wont turn on, we bought an extended


This is a common problem with Acers but usually it is the battery and the adapter. Replace the battery as well as the adapter and you shouldn't have any issues. Surges can be the main cause for this or running the laptop hot has also been the culprit.

Acer 5920 aspire wont start


1. Remove laptop battery, optical drive, hard drive and ram. Remove external peripherals as well.

2. Make sure AC Adapter is not yet connected to the laptop. Pressand hold on the laptop’s power button for 10 seconds to drain the powerflea.

3. Connect the AC Adapter for laptop to a known good power outlet, check ACAdapter power LED if it is on. Try to sense if AC Adapter is not makinga bit of noise when it is plugin to the wall power outlet.

4. Connect now the AC Adapter tothe laptop. Check if AC Adapter LED stays on when it is connected tothe laptop. If the LED stays on means the AC Adapter is fine. If the ACAdapter LED turned off check the AC Adapter pin that goes to the laptopAC socket if it is loose.

5. If AC Adapter stays on after connecting to the laptop try topower on laptop. If no power LED comes on then this is motherboardproblem.

6. Before replacing the motherboard there is one checking needs todo. If you can open your laptop bottom part then good, do this whenlaptop is not connected to any power source. Try to reseat the laptopCMOS battery then try to power on laptop after, if still fails thenreplace motherboard. I hope this helps.

Acer Aspire 5920 won't turn on, the charger lights up, (bright green) until you plug it into the back of the laptop, then the light goes dim and flashes.still no power to the laptop,not even the fan.


Your power supply or regulator in you laptop has gone south. sorry no quick fix for this one. It needs repaired and would include tracking down soldered connections.

sorry to tell you this.

Sir, i have bought a acer laptop model aspire 5920 but when i was working on it suddenly it shut down and till now i cannot made it power on can you tell me the problem


Remove the battery and the power adapter, wait 5 minutes, plug in the power adapter and try turning it on, if it doesn't turn on, remove the power adapter, plug in the battery and try starting up again, if it still doesn't work plug in the power adapter, try starting up.

Is the power adapter working? does it have a green led on it that shows that its powered?

Your motherboard is probably shorting out your A/C adapter, you may need a new motherboard. With a Dell, the A/C adapter light will be green when plugged into the wall but as soon as you plug it into the PC the green light goes off.

Notebook not turning on


the adapter plug could be bad
there is no way to test it with what you have there
but you can look at the pin in the laptop where it plugs into
take a toothpic or something, and see if it moves loose
if this pin is loose at all , the connection is broken
a new jack is 5 bucks on ebay , but putting it in is some work

also if the laptop cuts on and off if you touch the plug and jack , then it is probably the jack or inside the plug of adapter
