I CANT CHARGE IN ON MODE BUT I CAN CHARG IT IN SLEEP MODE OR OFF MODE


Sounds like it is taking in as much power as its spending when on, or maybe even more so. It could be a charger cord that isn't powerful enough or going bad, or it could be a plug has a problem.

Make sure that your charger is right for your laptop. If need be, make a new question acting that with the model number of the charger and the model number of the computer. If the box halfway through the cord gets really hot that is a sign of having the wrong cord. Especially if it's when you're using the computer and trying to charge.

Acer 5742 will not charge the battery


Before you replace the Mobo, test the battery and try another cord/charger of the exact type/power specs. If the AC jack is damaged, due to a pull, yank, tug....etc. on the cord, the AC jack may need replacing. It's difficult to say for sure, without eliminating other factor, the ones I mentioned. I assume a QUALIFIED computer tech told you the Mobo needed replacing??? Is the battery a replacement? Is the cord original?

New battery HP g61 is fully charged but not working \


Maybe the AC Adapter Power Cord is not working. If you can't get on the laptop with the power cord then it is bad and the battery might be drained so you have no power source to power up the laptop.
If the laptop works only off the Power Cord and the batteryis not charging, then the battery is dead.

To check to make sure the Power Cord is working remove the battery and let thelatop run for 10 minutes or so.

To check to see if the battery has any charge left in it put the battery in andremove the power cord. If it won't boot or shuts down then the battery is deadand needs to be replaced if the power cord is ok.

Sounds like you need a power cord - best option is to take the busted cord to The Shack (radio shack) and they have a universal power cord and they will help you match the tip so it fits in the laptop. I've done this for MP3 players and other devices and only costs about 30 bucks. Otherwise you could try hunting ebay or craigslist to find a replacement, or use some electrical tape to hold it in place that it works.

I lost my power cord to asus laptop, and my laptop wont charge with other power cords, so do I need to just buy a new power cord? or because it wont power up is there something wrong with my laptop?


You will need to buy another power cord for the exact model of your laptop. You can either find it in local computer stores, or you can search for it on ebay.com (usually search by laptop make & model, & usually buy from a top seller).

First thing you need to do is STOP trying to wiggle the cord to make it work. You could damage the motherboard.

The power jack needs to be replaced. It's a pretty standard repair. You can try finding a local laptop tech from Craigslist or visit your local shop.

This type of repair usually runs 70-100 out the door (depending on where you live)

I don't recommend you trying to fix it yourself.

Sounds to me like the transformer circuit that enables the batery to charge. If you have bought your machine within the last 12 months it should still be covered by warranty so go back to the supplier. If not covered I wouod still try as it is not beyond reasonable expecations that the machine will operate perfectly in very way for more than 1 year.

First thing check that the battery charge light is on when the battery and the charger are connected.
If it is it indicates that the power supply is charging the battery,
If it isnt it may indicate a fault with the battery or that the charger is not compatable with the laptop or that there is a fault with the charger.
If the battery is charging then try running the laptop on battery only without the charger and on charger only without the battery.
This will eliminate which one is faulty.

You mentioned that if you wiggle the cord then the light comes on again.
Check to see if the charger end plug is lose or the actual port on the laptop is lose.
If the charger plug is lose then return to seller and make sure they gave you the correct charger. if the actual port on laptop is lose then perhaps u got a bad connection and you need electrician or local laptop technician to open it up and solder properly on motherboard.

Let me know how it goes.
