Hi. I have netbook acer aspire one AO725, it seems the battery wont charging.. I read about solution that needs to update the the BIOS version.. current BIOS version v1.5, the latest is v1.8 but, it w


I suggest that you make sure the battery is in fact good before you update the BIOS. If the battery was charging OK and suddenly stopped charging then the problem is not the BIOS version.

If you do decide to update the BIOS you will need to find the appropriate procedure to follow by searching the Acer support site and/or knowledge base. Please be aware that using an incorrect method or if something fails during a BIOS update it can result in unrepairable damage.

It is not charging


I recently had an Acer Aspire One that (after fully discharging) would no longer hold a charge. It worked fine when plugged in, but would turn off right after discharging. This is due to a BIOS error, and this article will show you how to update the BIOS to the official Acer revision 3309.

This article is meant for the AOA110 and AOA150 models ONLY, ingluding the ZG series of AOA110 and AOA150 netbooks.

1. On a separate computer, click here: http://gd.panam.acer.com/

2. Click Netbook -> Acer Aspire One -> AOA150 -> and then below, choose the "BIOS" tab.

3. Click the orange "Down" arrow to download the BIOS.

4. Open the .zip file and extract the two files: "3310.fd" and "Flashit.exe" onto your thumb drive. Rename "3310.fd" to "zg5ia32.fd"

5.Insert the thumb drive into your powered off Netbook.

6.Press and hold down the "Fn" and "Esc" keys and turn on the Netbook while still holding these keys for about 30 seconds, then let go.

7. Your Netbook should stay black for anywhere from 2-4 minutes or so. Once it restarts, safely remove your thumb drive, and charge it for a while. It should successfully hold a charge from now on.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

Battery on my acer netbook will not charge. power connection and cable are fine as the computor works while plugged in.


this could also be a problem that can be resolved by updating your bios i agree that it could be a faulty battery but i still would try to update your bios and see if that helps because that would be the fastest possible solution. go to support.acer.com and look for your model of computer and you will be able to download an updated bios you want to look for the one with the most recent date

How do i charge the acer battery


Hi patron,

The trouble you are having with your Acer One is a known issue with the programming on the motherboard, you can download a free fix and install it from Acer.

Go to www.acer.com then select your region, click on service and support, then drivers & downloads. Use the box menu to select Netbooks, Aspire One, then the model # on the bottom of your netbook.

It will display a list of drivers, above them in faint print click the BIOS tab. Your Bios upgrades will be listed there. Download the newest one and follow the onscreen instructions that come up.

Once you complete this process and reboot your netbook will start charging it's battery.

Acer aspire one model zg5 battery won't charge


I have exactly the same problem and am searching at the same time as you. I think you are wrong. I think the 150 is for the larger screen model. I think we need the 110.

I think it's this one that i found at acer-euro

ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/netbook/aspire_one_110/bios/v.3309.zip

but I'm afraid to use it (which is not to say I know how). Somthing about putting it onto a USB drive and running scripts. At least that's what they do with this problem on a 150

Battery will not charge


Power reset the unit, unplug it pop out the battery and hold the power down for a minute, put the battery and ac adapter back in and start her up, the mobo was probably still holding power when the battery died causing a "hiccup"in the system, this should resolve or at least help a little
