First of all, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether.

Have an Acer M5-538P-5859 Lap top, that is 1 mo old. It is a Windows 8. It was left on with only battery power, for a number of days. I plugged in the charger and nothing happens--No lights on, no p


If you let the battery charge for about ten hours it might work. If you just want to see if the computer will work remove the battery and try with the charger plugged in. If you don't need to carry the computer around a battery is not needed. Some batteries will not recharge if they have been discharged too much. If you are going to use it with a battery I suggest that you set your power setting to turn the computer off after a period of unuse and this problem won't happen again. Check Ebay for a battery replacement.

How do I charge the battery of my ACER note book PC? What is the correct manner to charge it? Should I always plug the Note Book PC into the main AC when I log on to the computer?


Yes you should when the battery is low.
You can check the amount of charge in your battery by -
Open Control Panel - Power Options - click on Power meter tab - un-tick Show power levels on each battery.

Laptop Power


Not the charger. It is either the battery or the charge circuit in the laptop. Most are on the mother boards but some have a changable dc to dc inverter board

I CANNOT OPEN!!!


Hi, Try running you laptop with the battery and the AC adapter. If by plugging in your adapter there is no light indicator likewise or no powering up, then presumably there is a problem with the power supply circuitry in the motherboard. Normally the laptop should work with just the adapter, just the battery or both the battery and the adapter. If it will not perhaps your best bet is to seek professional repair service since this would require opening the motherboard. In most instances, this involves an smc fusible link, regulator transistors or even just cold solder or loose connections. Hope this be of some help/idea. post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
