Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

1 Answer

I have an Acer Aspire 5738Z. The battery will not charge. It is currently plugged in, and strangely, it seems to be holding power (or losing extremely slowly). Last night it said, 9% charged remaining, but it wasn't losing power then, so I defragged and did a full scan and it still showed 9%. I left it plugged in all night, and this morning it says 8% remaining. Even doing this Google search, and still shows 8%. Why is it doing this?

SOURCE: netbook acer one not recharging the battery

Your charger might be dead, check his output with a voltmeter if you get some juice. It should be around 19 Volts. Then it might loose his power with a charge (when you plug it onto your laptop) so you can try to connect a car light bulb to it . If get light then probably the motherboard of your laptop has issues, if no lights then you can replace your charger.
Cost in average 45 USD.
good luck

When you plug the DC power adapter and press on the power button, the laptop starts making normal noises, the LEDs work properly but noting appears on the screen. The laptop will not start.
First of all, take a closer look at the LCD screen. Look at the screen under bright light. It’s possible that the image is still on the screen but it’s very faint.
If there is no image on the laptop LCD screen, test the laptop with an external monitor. Connect an external monitor to the VGA port on your laptop and turn the laptop on. You can toggle video output between the internal LCD screen and external monitor by pressing Fn and F4 keys simultaneously on HP laptops, Fn and F5 keys on Toshiba laptops, Fn and F7 keys on IBM laptops. Other laptops may use different key combinations.
Let’s say the external monitor works fine but the internal LCD screen has no image at all. If that’s the case, your problem could be related to the LCD screen or the video cable. Also, make sure the video cable makes good connection with the motherboard and the LCD screen. Try reconnecting, reseating the cable.
In my case, both internal and external monitors were absolutely dead. Neither of them had image. That means the problem is not related to the LCD screen or the video cable. From my experience I know that this problem could be related to the laptop memory.
Try reseating the memory module, maybe it’s not making good connection with the memory slot. Try cleaning contacts on the memory module with pen eraser. Try moving the memory module into another slot. Try replacing the memory module with another known good module, it’s possible that your original module is dead.
If you have two memory modules installed you can try removing them one by one, it’s possible that one of the modules is bad. Try installing different memory modules into different memory slots.

In my case reseating, swapping the memory module didn’t help. I was pretty confident that my problem is not memory related and I moved on.
Try removing battery, hard drive and DVD drive and turning on the laptop without these components.
Also, try turning on the laptop with an external monitor when the video cable is unplugged from the motherboard. If the laptop start with video on the external monitor, apparently there is something wrong with the laptop display panel.
Finally, disassemble the laptop and removed the motherboard.
1. Motherboard. Like on most laptops, in my case the video card is integrated into the motherboard
2. CPU with heatsink and cooling fan.
3. Known good memory module.
4. The power button board witch you need to turn on the system.
5. Working DC power adapter.

Still cannot get any video on the external monitor. The system turns on, the cooling fan starts spinning but there is no video.
At this point I’m 95% sure that the motherboard is dead. CPU failures are not very common, so it must be bad motherboard.

SOURCE: Got new battery for acer aspire 6920. not charging

You ordered the wrong battery, theres two types, your original would have been 11.1v if you check the new one it will be 14.8v. They are not compatable.

SOURCE: Total battery power remaining: Unknown

Well you can try a system restore.

1.) start
2.) programs / accessories / system tools
3.) system restore

follow the on screen instructions too restore the computer to a few days before it started having problems.

Chances are that the battery is shot if system restore fails.

I forget bios password in setup acer aspire 5738z? thanks


You need to clear the CMOS.
In order to do that, you need to unplug it from the wall, remove the normal battery, and then try turning it on ( to remove any stored charge).

The full instructions area available from the Service Manual from Acer:
See page 118 ( The 126th Page) of http://ifile.it/rtbx0lp

I have an aser aspire 5738Z laptop. everything work ok but only battery not charging. battery is not present. what is the problem?


Try another working battery in the laptop, this will tell you if the original battery is bad or if the working one won't charge then you know at that point that no battery is being charged.

At that point you can try another AC Adapter but more then likely if a new battery doesn't resolve the issue then its a problem with the motherboard not putting out the proper current for it to charge the battery.

You can always go into the control panel into the power options and force the battery icon to show up in the taskbar and if you see a red x on it then that means the battery isn't being detected and hopefully trying another battery will solve the issue.

Acer Aspire 5738Z won't hold charge


Sorry. It seems that your battery is dead.
If your laptop is working fine on AC power only (with the battery disconnected), then your battery will need to be replaced.

My acer aspire battery discharges and does not hold its charge when not connected to the mains


If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, until they won't charge up at all. Then the battery needs to be replaced.
Check power adapter’s DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Acer Aspire 1640 power problem


Will the unit work without the battery? The new Lithium Ion batteries can be overcharged and then cause all kinds of strange problems. Take the battery to a reputable electronics shop or Batteries Plus and have them run a voltage and current test. The current test being the most revealing. If either of these is higher than the level printed on the battery, dispose of it. Also, check ACER's web site for battery problems. All the computer manufacturers have had battery problems.

Good Luck

Did the battery seem to lose it's charge rapidly prior to this, this would be an indication of a battery losing it's useful life, or a problem with the charge system.

Have you tried to take the battery out, plug the computer to a wall outlet granted you have the power adapter which is the same as the charger cord I would think. If that works I would say you need a new battery. Sometimes the plug port where it connects in the computer wears, so try and wiggle the cord if you didn't get something the first time.
