Acer Aspire 5580 wont power up at all

Hi guys
My laptop (Acer Aspire 5580) just went flat and wont show any sign of life. i removed the battery and installed it again. But it wouldn't start up. it was running on vista. used for over an year now. so no point of thinking about the warranty card.

I was using it fine in the morning and locked it and went out without closing the lid.

i tried with new power code, looks like power code is fine, when i connect power code to laptop that little light on AC adapter blinks and when i disconnect it from laptop is stays on.

is this usual in Acer laptops?

    My Acer aspire V3-571G will not turn on. There are no lights - nothing. I was using it this afternoon and shut down programs but just closed the lid, leaving it in sleep mode. When I went to plaug it in and turn it on, it wouldn't start, then I noticed none of the lights were on (battery, power, wireless, nothing. What can I do to fix this without having to spend a fortune to get it looked at?

Remove the adapter plug. 
Remove battery and insert again. I use a USB optical mouse, when inserting the battery, the lights will flash a moment. That signs OK.
Try turn on the notebook.
For my 5580, this trick always work. After it is on, I plug in the mains.

My acer laptop aspire 5580 creen monitor goes black, how can i put it back?


Unplug the power, remove the battery and then hold the power button for 30 to 60 seconds. Then reattach the power and attempt a boot. It worked for me! Just shutdown, put the battery back in you're good to go. Worked for me so definitely worth a try.

No power


It is unlikely that not using the surge suppressor did anything. Have you tried removing the battery and using ONLY the power supply? If this works, it is usually a sign that your battery is dead and needs to be replaced

ASpire 5580 series, no power


Hi Dhadha, 
Try this: - remove AC adapter plug - remove the battery - insert the battery again. - try power up the laptop.
I have same problem, but this trick always work, and I always do this every power up. :)
However, I am using a usb optical mouse for an indicator. When inserting the battery, I check the light on the mouse. If it is flashing the second I insert the battery, then the power up will be successful. IF it is not, then remove and insert the battery again.
Try it.
Regards,
Dapid Candra

Acer Aspire 5580 poor battery


Its time for a new battery. After a period of time of using a battery, the amount of charge it can hold depletes. Even if you always have it plugged in. Usually, batteries only last 18-24 months which is sad, seeing how much they cost. I'm a computer tech and see this problem everyday first hand. The best thing you can do is buy a battery from eBay and save yourself a bunch of money. Local retail stores charge up to 3 times as much for a battery. Good luck and I hope this helps..... :>)
