First, take the battery out of the laptop, plug it into a wall outlet & see if it will work. If it does, then the battery is bad & needs to be replaced. If it did not turn on on AC power only, then you might need to carry on the diagnosis outlined in the following article:

If none of this helps, then you will need to start removing the laptop's parts one at a time & see if the laptop turns on after each part removed. Once it turns on, then you know which part is defective & needs to be replaced (obviously, the part you just removed before turning it on). Start with parts like the RAM modules, the hard drive, the Wi-Fi adapter, the CD/DVD drive, .... etc. Continue removing the parts until you are left with the motherboard. If the laptop still did not turn on with the motherboard left, then the motherboard is the defective part that needs to be replaced.

Do you have it on a power strip? if so try resitting it,if the battery is at full charge then you have an internal problem in the laptop itself.Bad power board,etc.Hope this helps.

I have an Acer Aspire one model zg5- Power cord


Here is another thing you can try. Unplug the power cord, and then remove the battery. Press the "Start" button and hold for 5 seconds. Replace the battery back into the computer and plug in the power cord. Start the machine and see if the low battery message still comes up. Sometimes the program that monitors the battery status gets confused. Doing the above should straighten it out. The Acer should start up and the AC power light should be lit. Look down in your task bar for the battery Icon or go to Battery Status in Control Panel and see if it shows that the battery is charging. Even newer batteries can go bad (rare) but if this is the case and a cell has shorted out in the battery, then your only recourse is exchange under warranty.

Acer Aspire won't start


There is one common flaw with most all laptops. The socket plug for the power cord is connected to the motherboard. When you plug the power cord into this socket it applies pressure or weight on the socket inside the computer. It sounds as if your charge cord is working. Moving the computer around while it is plugged in can cause even more stress on the plug socket.

Try this...but be careful...using a small item such as a toothpick or other non-metalic item...push up and down on the plug socket. If it moves around this is not normal and probably the cause of your problem.

I fixed my laptop by soldering the contacts of the socket back down to the board. I don't suggest doing this yourself unless you know how to take a laptop apart. Check with your local computer repair shop and have them give you an estimate to either fix by reconnecting or replacing the motherboard. Hope this helps. Thanks!
