There could be a problem with the Power Adapter, with the battery. So get it checked with the help of a Local Computer shop.

My acer wont turn on it just died while my girlfriend was watching a movie and the main power supply was plugged in so i know the battery didnt die

It might be the motherboard problem. Else i dont see a chance in sudden death of laptop. Or its a temporary problem due to overheating. Make sure your laptop is properly ventillated i.e there is enough space around the air outlet for the circulation of hot air.

If its not restarting, then your motherboard might have gone faulty. Sorry for that..!! If in warranty period, contact the company, they should replace it.

I have a battery charging problem on my Gateway Solo1450 laptop. The battery is new and gave me 30 minutes of battery only run time after taht it would not charge. I set the commands (Enabled) in the BIOS...

hi, if the battery is new then you need to start looking at things like the charger. If the old battery was used for a long time, and as they have only a few months life span then this puts extra work on the charger due to the fact that when the battery is new it holds its charge and recharges fully now the problem is when the battery is old it dont hold the charge and runs flat alot quicker so this puts extra strain on the charger is its trying to charge a battery that wont charge properly as well as keeping the laptop working. This tends to cause problems with the charger due to it over heating so this is what i would look at first.

The second and less likely cause might be that due to the old battery over heating due to it not holding a charge this may have caused some components or solder on the circuit board to fail this isnt very likely but does happen from time to time.

What i would do first is take your laptop and charger into a small computer repair shop and just say to them you dont want any work doing but is their any chance you could tell me if my charger is working or not, play it like if i need a new charger youll buy it from them or if they say the board is damaged just say to them that you will bring it back when you have the money to pay for it. This way your not obliged to leave them with the laptop and you will then find out the fault for free. At least if they say its the charger then you could then get it off auction site instead of the computer shop.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance.

Try this first though use the laptop untill the battery is totally flat i mean flat so much that it wont even light the laptop up then without using the laptop plug the charger in and then leave it to charge for say 12 to 16 hours so that its had chance to do a full charge from flat this then may solve your problem.

Also doing this process every month will ensure you get maximum life out of your battery

Screen dont turn on.

Try with the battery disconnected from the laptop. This happens sometimes due to a bad battery or a bad battery charging circuit.

Acer laptop 3620 battery will not charge

You may want to check the A/C port. Some the ports can come loose from the motherboard due to wear. Can you tell if the computer is getting a charge from the A/C adapter?
