My acer wont start up


Acer laptops allow you to take your work and entertainment on the go.

You can work on a presentation during a long flight or watch a DVD in the middle of a park.


Acer laptops can do this because they are powered by batteries, allowing the laptop to run without having to be plugged into a power source.


Normally, the battery can be recharged by plugging the laptop back into a power socket.


But certain problems can keep the battery from charging.

Electrical Connection


For laptops to charge, they need to be connected to a power source.


Although it may look like you have the cable plugged in correctly on the Acer, make sure that the cord is firmly plugged into the power socket.


There should be a light on the Acer keyboard as well as a power symbol on the taskbar for your operating system that tells you whether the laptop is running off electrical or battery power.


If it is plugged in, make sure that this icon shows that it is on electrical power.


Also check the socket where the Acer is plugged in and make sure that it isn't turned off at the main circuit breaker.


Battery


Turn the Acer over and make sure that the battery is properly placed in the battery compartment. Most laptops will have locks that keep the battery securely in place.

These locks can sometimes come loose.

Use a piece of strong tape as a temporary measure to keep a loose battery in place.


Clean the terminals on the battery to ensure that there is a good connection.

Remove the battery from the battery compartment.

Apply rubbing alcohol to a lint-free cloth. Rub this cloth over the shiny metal terminals on the battery.

Over time, batteries lose their ability to be recharged.

If neither of the aforementioned steps works, you may just have a bad battery.


Check with Acer or other vendors to find a replacement for your model.


BIOS Update


The BIOS (Basic Input Output System) controls a number of basic functions for a computer, such as assigning the hard drives and other system functions.



The BIOS also controls the battery charging function.

Certain Acer models have a bad BIOS that operates the computer normally but doesn't charge the battery.


To solve this problem, you need to perform an operation called Flashing the BIOS where you download a new version of the BIOS and upload it to your Acer.


Check on the Acer support site to see whether your computer model could possibly be affected by this.


Adapter


The power adapter, the part that plugs into the Acer from the power socket, can go bad.


Check for a power light on the adapter.


If the light is not lit, you probably have a bad adapter.


Replacement adapters can be purchased from Acer or other online vendors.

POWER SUPPLY & BATTERY PROBLEM
If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

I cannot open my laptop with control-alt-del. when I power on the laptop, I get a continuous high pitched alarm. also, the battery charge (lightening bolt icon) does not stay lit. Is it power adapter or...


It could be either or both. First, use a multimeter to check the power output from your adapter to see if it is within specification (your particular computer requires 19 VDC). If the voltage is low, you need a new adapter at least. The battery charge icon not staying lit can be because of a bad adapter, but also can be because of a damaged connection in the plug where the adapter jack plugs in. If you wiggle the plug, does the icon go on and off?

If you remove the battery from the computer and leave the adapter plugged in, does it make a difference?

Only more rarely is it the battery itself. Try the above first.

Dell 9400 wont show AC power icon


If the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the about10.jpg light operates as follows:
  • Solid green: The battery is charging.

  • Flashing green: The battery is almost fully charged.

If the computer is running on a battery, the about41.jpg light operates as follows:
  • Off: The battery is adequately charged (or the computer is turned off).

  • Flashing orange: The battery charge is low.

  • Solid orange: The battery charge is critically low.
Looks like the AC adaptor is faulty.

Battery not charging


Your battery is dead and will no longer hold a charge. If it is a newer computer, then it may be defective and covered under your warranty. If it is an older computer, this is the unfortunate thing about rechargeable batteries...eventually they will no longer hold a charge.

Battery level


As Suzaku explained:
A battery icon will show up on the LCD screen of your camera when it is already low and needs recharging. It can be found at the lower right side of your LCD screen. The ready light of your camera will also blink red and your camera will turn off if the battery is exhausted.
NOTE:
The icon will not appear if the batery is sufficient and there is no TECH way of making the icon show until the batt needs charging.
