Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a Acer Aspire 5715/5315 laptop. I need a power cord for it. All I could find in local shops was a 70w universal power adapter. It doesn't list any Acer products on the partial list on the back. I haven't opened it because if it won't work I will take it back

How to fix power button


Pam,

The problem is probably not the power button. If you have the AC adapter plugged in but you do not see any lights indicating that there is power reaching the laptop (such as the light that indicates that the battery is charging), chances are that you have a bad motherboard. The other possibility is that you have a broken DC power jack (where the AC adapter plugs into the laptop). Neither the motherboard nor the power jack are user-repairable issues. My advice would be to take this unit to a local professional computer repair center and have it evaluated.

I reset my surge protector and the computer wont power up. i think i need a new power supply. the power cord is working fine. Please let me know where i can find a power supply for the aspire...


The Acer Aspire L100 is a desktop computer powered by a special DC adapter and power cable. The computer's motherboard incorporates a fuse designed to prevent any power surges from damaging the computer. If the fuse burns out due to a power surge or for any other reason, the computer will no longer function. You can check the motherboard fuse for damage yourself, then take it to a trained technician for replacement if needed

Shut down the Acer Aspire L100 and turn the tower around.

Press the "On/Off" button on the front of the tower. If the computer will not boot and the fan does not turn on, the fuse may be burned out.

Unplug the power cord from the rear of the tower

Turn the tower on its side and remove the Phillips-head screws connecting the back panel to the Aspire L100's cabinet.

Pull out the motherboard assembly gently from the back of the cabinet. The internal fuse is located on the motherboard behind the DC power jack, which is to the right of the monitor jack

Let me know if this helped..

    My silly dog chews on everything and i mean everything and he chewed through my cord any solutions o and my computer isn't dead but its slowly dying i need help fast


    1. Ask a friend, neighbor, relative if they have a spare cord you can borrow to charge your computer.

    2. Go to a computer store (with cord) and see if they have a universal or replacement cord (most should).

    3. Go to the Acer Website (Google: Acer Laptops and accesories) and order one (rush delivery).

    You should be able to purcahse one at a computer store (Radio Shack may have them, or Walmart even as that's where I purcased my Acer Aspire).

    Please let me know if you need further assitance.

    My Aspire One netbook seems to be frozen. Screen is black but I cannot turn off computer. It is 751H with 11.6"screen.


    Well try hold down the power button for at least 10 seconds until the laptop powers down. if this doesnt work, pull the power cord out to the laptop and take the battery out.

    Put the battery back in the laptop and power up.
    If u still just get a black screen whist the laptop is on after that its most probably the graphics controller that has malfunctioned.

    If that is the case, call ur local Acer hotline and the will come and collect and repair and return if still under warranty.

    Acer aspire 4920g charging mechanism failed


    Have you tested the adapter to see if there is any power getting to your notebook period. Use a multimeter to check for DV voltage. If you can't get your multimeter probe into the middle of the plug then I use a paper click to get in there. If your adapter is not supplying any voltage then there is a problem with it. I get a replacement adapter for my wife's Acer on eBay for about $30. Just search eBay for 4920g and you should get quite a few hits for the ac adapter or power cord.

    If the adapter is providing power then the motherboard in your notebook is faulty since you've already replaced the battery. A replacement motherboard might be available from eBay. Replacing the motherboard could be complicated depending on your experience so I would leave that up to a notebook technician. An Acer certified shop may also be able to sell you a replacement motherboard.

    I don't think it's the motherboard, my money is on the adapter. Test it out or have it tested.

    Faulty power supply on Acer Laptop. Not sure if it's the adapter or the laptop. Don't really want buy a new adapter and themn find out it's the laptop. On the other hand i have heard bad things about Acer...


    If it is under warranty bring it to local repair shop that does warranty work for Acer. They should be able to test if adapter is still ok or if it is the laptop. If it is the laptop itself will need to send in for repair.
