I have an acer 4050 Travelmate, it has just suddenly stopped charging the battery. The machine works with the battery out and on 240v. If you put the battery in and on 240v it wont turn on. The battery has been working fine and has had good life between charges. Can anyone help, could it be setings or is it battery

    Thanks for that, It sounds to me that the lap top has been programmed to break down. I have someone who can check in to this. The problem did start after I accidently removed the battery by catching my finger on the release clip, although the battery did not come all the way out. Thank you very much for your help. Some one else said about trying to recalibrate or reset/Flash the BIOS?



    I don't fancy doing that. I suspect now that a new battery will still not work.

Sounds like the battery and how the system is wired (circuits)
Some systems require the voltage reg chips to run through the battery before turning system on. When the battery fails, the system will not boot, the dead battery interrupts the circuitry.
Once the Battery is removed the open circuit then is allowed to go to a new path.

Try this. boot up system and go into set up utility. plug in the battery, if it shuts down, get new battery. If it accepts it, save settings and reboot into OS.

    Check the pins both on the battery and on the motherboard

Acer Travelmate 4060. Dead. Flashes power/battery led once when I hit the power button then nothing


Try removing the battery and plugging the machine in as if you were going to charge it, then try starting it up.

If it doesn't start up, check the connections on the adapter. If everything looks fine then theres a possibility that you have a broken adapter.

Is the charging light on when connected to ac, is the battery old or new? The power supply connector might be faulty either at the cable side or inside the laptop.
