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.

Will not switch on


Let's start with your battery. It could be bad, the camera's charging circuit could have failed or the electrical contacts on the battery or in the camera could be dirty.
Start by cleaning the contacts. I find that a clean pencil eraser works quite well. If that does not work, consider the age of your battery. Rechargeable batteries do not last forever. They are rated for a certain number of charge/discharge cycles and they may or may not meet the specification. Your battery could be old and cannot hold a charge; in which case you need to buy a new EN-EL5 battery.
The other possibility is that the charger circuit in your camera is not longer functional. If it has gone bad, the cost of repair might not be justified. Instead, I would buy an external charger. The Nikon battery charger you need is model MH-61. Nikon's price is $27.95, but you can probibly find one for less.

Icom bc-179 do not charge the battery


Charging a battery requires two components. A working charger and a functioning battery. The concept is simple. A battery charger must output more voltage than the battery does, and at an acceptable current level. First determine the battery output from the ID sticker, then measure the charger output. It must be 1 or 2 volts more than the battery output. If the charger is working, charge the battery overnight. If the battery does not charge or runs down quickly, the battery must be replaced. All batteries have a limited number of charge cycles. The most common problem with Ni-Cad batteries happens when they are re-charged before they are completely discharged. Recharging a half used Ni-Cad sets up a short term memory and the battery discharges faster than normal.

Low battery warning


Take the battery out, plug in the charger and see if the laptop works.
If it works, the battery may be the problem.
Check the AC Adapter
Check to make sure the adapter is plugged securely into the wall outlet, connected firmly to the adapter box and to the back of your laptop.
Most AC adapters have a little light in them on that rectangular box in the middle of the cord that lights up when it's getting electricity.
If that light isn't on, try a different outlet.
Check your fuse or circuit breaker box and plug a different device into that outlet to make sure there is power to it.
If it still does not light up, your adapter could need replacing.
Also check the adapter box for signs of warmth, as it will generate heat when it's plugged in. No heat means no power.

Remove the Battery Sometimes it's as simple as a seated battery.
Remove the battery entirely and clean out any dust, lint or hair that may be clogging the connectors and preventing a proper connection.
Reseat the battery securely and make sure the little locking pins that hold your battery in place are securely fastened and there is no movement.
Fix a Broken Laptop Charger
If your laptop charger seems broken, it's most likely because the battery will not charge.
You plug in the cord, the lights come on, but the charging light doesn't change or blinks repeatedly.
When you remove the power cord, the laptop shuts off instantly due to the depleted battery. There's more than one cause for this, and it's not always a broken charger.

Check the connection between the charger and the laptop.
It should fit firmly in the DC jack without wiggling.
If it is loose, use electrical tape to hold it in place so the charger can receive power.
This is a temporary fix, however, because a faulty connection can create sparks and cause a fire or injury.
A loose connection will just get worse over time, so have it sent to a DC jack specialist as soon as possible.
Turn off the laptop and flip it upside down. Locate the latch that secures the battery and slide open.
The battery should pop out; give it a tug if it doesn't.
Apply a small amount of rubbing alcohol (Methylated Spirits)to the tip of a cotton swab and use it to clean the battery's connectors.
Dirt can build up and interfere with the connection, giving the appearance of a broken charger. Let the alcohol dry completely and re-insert the battery.
Slide the latch to secure it and plug in the power cord to test it.
See if the laptop powers on with the charger only and battery removed.
If it does, the battery is the likely culprit and should be replaced.
If the charger is truly broken, the only thing to do is to replace it or the power cord attached to it. Look on the bottom and write down the part number.
Call the laptop manufacturer for a replacement charger or search for the part number on eBay.
If you purchase from anyone other than the original manufacturer, ask for genuine parts to reduce the possibility of problems.

Acer laptops allow you to take your work and entertainment on the go.
You can work on a presentation during a long flight or watch a DVD in the middle of a park.
Acer laptops can do this because they are powered by batteries, allowing the laptop to run without having to be plugged into a power source.
Normally, the battery can be recharged by plugging the laptop back into a power socket.
But certain problems can keep the battery from charging.Electrical Connection

For laptops to charge, they need to be connected to a power source.
Although it may look like you have the cable plugged in correctly on the Acer, make sure that the cord is firmly plugged into the power socket.
There should be a light on the Acer keyboard as well as a power symbol on the taskbar for your operating system that tells you whether the laptop is running off electrical or battery power.
If it is plugged in, make sure that this icon shows that it is on electrical power.
Also check the socket where the Acer is plugged in and make sure that it isn't turned off at the main circuit breaker.

Battery
Turn the Acer over and make sure that the battery is properly placed in the battery compartment. Most laptops will have locks that keep the battery securely in place.
These locks can sometimes come loose.
Use a piece of strong tape as a temporary measure to keep a loose battery in place.
Clean the terminals on the battery to ensure that there is a good connection.
Remove the battery from the battery compartment.
Apply rubbing alcohol to a lint-free cloth. Rub this cloth over the shiny metal terminals on the battery.
Over time, batteries lose their ability to be recharged.
If neither of the aforementioned steps works, you may just have a bad battery.
Check with Acer or other vendors to find a replacement for your model.


BIOS Update The BIOS (Basic Input Output System) controls a number of basic functions for a computer, such as assigning the hard drives and other system functions.
The BIOS also controls the battery charging function.
Certain Acer models have a bad BIOS that operates the computer normally but doesn't charge the battery.
To solve this problem, you need to perform an operation called "Flashing the BIOS" where you download a new version of the BIOS and upload it to your Acer.
Check on the Acer support site to see whether your computer model could possibly be affected by this.

Adapter
The power adapter, the part that plugs into the Acer from the power socket, can go bad.
Check for a power light on the adapter.
If the light is not lit, you probably have a bad adapter.
Replacement adapters can be purchased from Acer or other online vendors.

I need driver for acer 5534 for win xp


~To download drivers and specific software;

Always get your drivers from the manufacturer of your Laptop, Notebook or Desktop.

If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, usually one is able to download if available, by model number, All available Driver downloads as required.

If the driver is not available, perhaps your manufacturer does not support the OS you are installing.

This is the best way of ensuring up to date drivers for your system and they are free of charge!

There are no XP drivers to be found with Microsoft as XP is no longer supported.

Some manufacturers may have a limited number of Drivers still listed.

I hope this helps.

I guess your charger has very low power (low wattage). That is why it charges the battery when the laptop is off. But as soon as the laptop is on, the charger can't keep up with the power dreained by keeping the laptop on and eventually the battery runs outr of juice.
According to the user's manual (http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/manuals/acer/0000/userguides/AS5600_3680_UG.pdf)
I suggest you get a charger with at least 90 W.

Does the acer 5532 have a touch pad and also a


Hello,
The generic specs for the 5532-5534 series is listing that it has both a touchpad and a Crystal Eye Webcam, however there is a special note remarking that there is a chance the device will not have a webcam depending on the specific model within the series. Acer model numbers are generally, 2 letters followed by 8 digits followed again by 4 letters, so a full model number would look like: AS55325421WLMi
If you happen to have the full model number I can let you know for sure.
Thanks!
