Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

1 Answer

System Lagging, BSOD, etc.

About two weeks ago, I came home from work and I saw my laptop was off. I knew something was wrong because the AC adaptor light was on, so I knew it was plugged in, and my laptop was on when I left for work. I turned my laptop on, and it came up with a BSOD and stated a 'fatal system error'. I turn off my laptop, boot it up again, and select 'start windows normally' selection from the prompt. Vista begins to load, but my laptop all of a sudden shuts off. I repeat the same steps again, and it goes off, yet again. Finally, I turn it on and it loads, but everything is running at a reduced framerate. A couple of weeks go by, and last week, it happens again, but with no BSOD, and one less shut off. Since then, I can barely run a simple Java-based game on my browser, my typing is severely laggy, and my laptop is getting hot within minutes. I went to Circuit City to ask them about it and all I got was a "Yea, that's a problem you can get". I don't want to go and shell out 60 dollars for them to tell me that, but with them fiddling with my computer. Can anyone give me some insight on what I should do? I'm short on money at the moment, and I need to get this remedied by the time college rolls around this August.

hi,

You said laptop is working fine if just using the battery,that means that there is nothing wrong with the battery itself. Can yu please try to connect the laptop directly to the power outlet without using the battery just for the mean time,remove the battery and connect the AC adapter directly to the power outlet then power on the laptop,if nothing happens,that means that there is something wrong with the AC adapter itself or the power port on the laptop.
Hope this will help...

Take out the battery and try running it on the power adaptor alone.
If this works, you have a dead battery.
If not there's something more serious wrong in the machine.

My Acer Aspire 9805 battery was replaced. For


It could be an AC adaptor issue.

It should boot when connected directly to the power outlet through the laptop adaptor. If it is not boot, then the adaptor might not be supplying the needed power to boot it up.

If it is possible, try to isolate the issue. Charge your new battery using another laptop. Then plug it in your laptop to see if it works. If it will work, then it is the AC adaptor of your laptop that is defective. If the charged battery still won't make the laptop boot, then there is something wrong with your laptop hardware. If could be a motherboard issue of your laptop.

Dell Inspiron B130 Battery Problem


Sounds like the cells in the battery went bad. Try to turn on your laptop with just the ac adaptor hooked up and your battery out off the laptop to make sure that your ac adaptor is working properly. If you can boot up into windows with just the ac adaptor hooked up then you know your ac adaptor is good.

If you get that far then try a different battery and see if the laptop charges with another known good battery. If it does then you know your original battery is bad. If it doesn't charge your different known good battery then you know the motherboard is bad. Hope this helps.

sounds like you have an intermittent problem with your AC adaptor or dc input jack. Does the light on the AC adaptor light up when you plug it in? If it does then your dc input jack may be faulty. If the light on the ac adaptor does not light then replace the ac adaptor. Good Luck!
