Question about Acer Aspire 5335-2257 Notebook

1 Answer

I have an Aspire 7736Z-4809 and it seems that the battery isn't working. If I unplug the power strip the computer shuts off. Is this the battery or the settings or the plug? Any thoughts?

Unplug the laptop then remove the battery. Reseat the battery, plug the laptop back in. Then restart your laptop. Give it 5-10min to allow for a small charge and then remove your charger again. If the laptop shuts off immediately it is quite likely that your battery has failed. This is quite common for batteries. If you're under warranty please contact the manufacturer. Else you will likely find a cheaper battery solution on ebay. -Ravi Shanghavi

I have an Acer 7736Z the battery isn't charging. The BIOS on the acer support website give me version 2.10 which doesn't seem to match the directions given from previous questions and solution


If your battery will not charge, you need to run a test on some components on the laptop. The battery, the charger and the laptop itself. Once you detect the faulty conponent then you replace it with a new one.

To test the battery:
1.Power off the laptop,
2.Take out the battery,
3.Insert it in another laptop,
4.Check of it will charge,

If the battery holds a charge there, then it means the problem is not from the battery, but if it does not hold a charge, then it means the battery is defective and need to be replaced with a new one.

To test the charger:
1.Unplug the charger from the present laptop,
2.Connect it to another laptop to see if it will charge.

If it charges the laptop, then it means the charger is alright, and if it does not charge the laptop, then it means the charger is bad and need to be replaced.

To test the laptop:
1.Turn off the laptop,
2.Disconnect your present charger,
3.Remove your present battery pack,
4.Insert a well tested battery into the laptop,
5.Connect a well tested charger to the laptop.

If it powers on, then it and charges, then it means the laptop is working fine, but if it does not charge, then it means the connection port of the laptop is bad.Hope this information was helpful.

My acer aspire 7736Z will not turn on.light on charger cord comes on and i get some reading when i try to test the cord and charge with my digital multimeter. if you need any other particulars on this


hi, if you getting voltage to the laptop it the multi meter is around 19v ( or what ever voltage is on the charger) is then your charger is more then likely fine other then trying a second charger , there is a simple trick you can try to resolve this issue with the following procedure

- remove the battery from the laptop
- remove all cords including power from the laptop
- press and hold the power button for 60 seconds ( at least 60 secs)
- plug the laptop into the ac adaptor only ( no battery) and try and turn it on
- if this works then you can turn it off and put the battery back in the unit

if it doesn't work then there is either a problem with the motherboard ( faulty Laptop) or the charger is faulty but you can only be 100% sure by using a second ac adapter but again if its got the right voltage its likely fine

Acer Aspire One D255E battery meter says 100% charged but computer shuts down when you unplug power cord


That's often the sign of a worn-out or defective battery. They appear to charge but don't store enough energy to work. It's also possible the motherboard's power circuit isn't working. The only way to know for sure is to have a known good battery as a test, or to try your battery in another computer. If your computer works with a good test battery, or your battery causes another computer to shut down, you know you need a new battery. If the trouble continues with a good test battery, you'll need to have the computer serviced.

I cannot get my laptop to start. I have bought a new power cord, and it will not charge or start. I have an acer aspire 7736z. What could the problem be?


Try removing the battery, it may be defective. Remove the battery and see if the unit powers up when plugged in.
Check to see if the charge light at least comes on when it's plugged in....if it doesn't, then the socket the power supply plugs into may need to be re-soldered.

acer aspire 5335-2257 replaced 4 pin power jack intermittent power, only runs with battery but barely charges. acer aspire 5335-2238. My son's friend recently asked me to take a look at his laptop because he couldn't get it to take a charge or run without the battery when plugged in. Right away I noticed the dc jack was charred and the plastic around it melted. He said the power cord "brick" got really hot, all the way to the tip where it plugs into the laptop. I know the bricks can get warm but he said it actually burned his sister. I ended up replacing the dc jack and 4 pin harness with a new one and figured this would solve the power issue. It won't get power with the original power cord and I also tried a few others that were similar. The only one that worked was an adaptor that I think went to a cordless phone or something like. The next problem was I had to fiddle with the dc jack to get the yellow battery light on. Still won't turn on without battery. The battery at this point is drained so I left it plugged in all day, at least 12 hours and the green light finally came on indicating a charged battery. The battery only charged about 8-9% and died fast. I tried more adaptors and got another one to light up the yellow battery light, again a small modem adaptor, not one with the brick. This time I left it over night and got about 12% charge. Both times the laptop turned on, booted up and ran until the battery died after about 5 min. I'm out of ideas aside from maybe a bios problem but I can't get it to stay on long enough to do anything about it. I don't understand why the new jack isn't working, it's a pretty simple install, no soldering. I looked real close at the board and didn't see any obvious fried chips or anything like that. Any suggestions would be great. I've had this 14 year old kid's laptop for almost 2 weeks trying to figure it out (I also replaced his keyboard, disc drive and cleaned it up) and he's calling me every day.
