Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop

1 Answer

Aspire 3680 Won't charge

The Laptopn starts/runs on wall power but shuts down within 2 minutes when on just battery. I get a low power message at that time.

I have replaced the battery but the laptop acts exactly the same was as when the old battery was installed.

When I open the power window, the battery icon has a red X through it and it indicates 0% Charged.

Is there an internal battery component that needs repair or replacement? Can I do the procedure myself?

Hello,

Have you tested the A/C to be charging correctly ? Have you confirmed that at the back of your laptop where you plug the power in that the pin is not bend and not missing or broken or pushed in ?

If your new battery and the old battery give you exactly the same issue, then most likely your A/C power adapter or cable OR the physical port on your laptop is broken and needs to be replaced.

Shut down the laptop and remove the battery . Now allow 15 minutes and then replace the battery back to boot again. If the PC does not respond with the keys, it must be checked if the cat had soiled the key pad and there is a short within.

The battery continues to charge if the computer is off. The computer probably won't turn on because the battery is so low. It might not be charging because the power cord might not be plugged into a wall plug that is on. The plug might be on a switch. Find a plug that you know for sure that is on then plug it in there and try again.

Hi,

This sounds like the laptop is faulty if within minutes the laptop is totally drained of power from a so-called full charge.
Because the laptop is new then I recommend that you send or take the laptop back for repair or replacement as it's still covered by the manufacturers warranty.




Regards.

Says plugged in not charging


Take out the battery and make sure you can turn on the laptop with just the AC Adaptor hooked up.

If you can then you know the AC Adaptor is good. Try another known good working battery in the laptop, if the battery charges then you know that the old battery is bad.

If the laptop doesn't charge with a know working battery or a new one then you know that the motherboard is bad.

Try also taking out the hard drive and the dvd drive to make sure that they aren't shorting out the motherboard.

Also try another stick of memory besides the one that came with your laptop to be sure the memory isn't bad.

If after you do these steps you still can't get video then your motherboard is bad.

Acer aspire 3680 laptop will not charge while plugged in wall


It appears that you have faulty laptop power connector socket.
This is why it appears to work sometimes when you plug the connector into the laptop in some direction.
To confirm this, wriggle the connector while you look at the charge light on the laptop, if it blinks as you wriggle it then the power socket is either faulty or just needs resoldering so it will make proper electrical contact.
You can get a compute techo to do this or you can do it yourself but it requires dismantling the laptop completely to get at this power socket.

Battery or charger ?


well...this one is interesting, for certain. You bought a display model, so the chances of it working off battery are mighty slim. Could be that the m/b was running off ac power all the time, and can NOT charge a battery. I'd take it back, and have them show you that it will run on battery, which is considered a fairly important issue with laptops, at least around these parts on Hawaii
