The current factory battery in my laptop won't charge.


Hello,
Please provide your laptop's brand and model. Still, there are some things you can try regardless of the brand:
1. Look whether your charging adapter lights on. If you have a voltmeter, you can simply check on the input jack. Testing with a friend's adapter from exactly the same laptop is another option, or at least check the voltage, polarity, power output and do not force the laptop plug. If your adapter is not working, test with a new power cord (from the wall outlet to the adapter). If this does not help, you will need a new adapter (fixing the old one is complicated and not worth it). An equivalent one can be easily found online, on the laptop's manufacturer's site or another one.
2. If the adapter is working, then the issue is probably with the laptop. If you have a second such laptop nearby, switch the batteries for a test (turn off both laptops before removal).
3. If the battery is fine, then most probably it is the laptop's plug, especially if the charging cable stays loose. This will require opening the machine and some skills, probably with the soldering iron. Better leave it to a specialized service.
Please let me know if the above was helpful.

Battery not charging. Computer is brand new. Works fine when plugged in, however icon below reads 0% charge available, plugged in, not charging''. I took the battery out and reinserted it, and still no...


If the Acer is brand new then it is under warranty. Take it back to where you bought the Acer and get it fixed under warranty. if you attempt to fix it yourself you will most likely void your warranty.

Acer aspire 4920g charging mechanism failed


Have you tested the adapter to see if there is any power getting to your notebook period. Use a multimeter to check for DV voltage. If you can't get your multimeter probe into the middle of the plug then I use a paper click to get in there. If your adapter is not supplying any voltage then there is a problem with it. I get a replacement adapter for my wife's Acer on eBay for about $30. Just search eBay for 4920g and you should get quite a few hits for the ac adapter or power cord.

If the adapter is providing power then the motherboard in your notebook is faulty since you've already replaced the battery. A replacement motherboard might be available from eBay. Replacing the motherboard could be complicated depending on your experience so I would leave that up to a notebook technician. An Acer certified shop may also be able to sell you a replacement motherboard.

I don't think it's the motherboard, my money is on the adapter. Test it out or have it tested.

Acer aspire 3500 wont hold charge or turn on


remove the battery and see it the power comes on, if so bad battery, check the connector where the power plugs into the laptop, sometime this breaks or has a cold solder joint, you can test this by wiggling and looking to see if the power lights up. last and worst case is a bad main board.
