Hi,
I am a Dell Certified System Engineer(DCSE)

try taking out tthe battery and then try powering the system only on ac adapter connected
if it doesn't power on only on the ac adapter make sure that the port on the system where you plug in the ac adapter for any kind of bent or broken pins
if the port is ok then get your ac adapter replaced.

The initial battery of my Acer Travelmate 2480 packed up and I ordered and installed a new one. However, the laptop remains on "AC Only" power and the battery is not charged, giving a...


RTFM You can download the manual by googling "acer travelmate 2480 manual" (without the quotes). Or just click here

According to the Acer manual:

"Conditioning a new battery pack
Before you use a battery pack for the first time, there is a
"conditioning" process that you should follow:
1 Insert the new battery without turning the computer on.
2 Connect the AC adapter and fully charge the battery.
3 Disconnect the AC adapter.
4 Turn on the computer and operate using battery power.
5 Fully deplete the battery until the battery-low warning appears.
6 Reconnect the AC adapter and fully charge the battery again.

Follow these steps again until the battery has been charged and
discharged three times.
Use this conditioning process for all new batteries, or if a battery hasn't
been used for a long time. If the computer is to be stored for more
than two weeks, you are advised to remove the battery pack from the
unit.

Warning: Do not expose battery packs to temperatures below 0°C
(32°F) or above 60°C (140°F). Extreme temperatures may adversely
affect the battery pack.

By following the battery conditioning process you condition your
battery to accept the maximum possible charge. Failure to follow this
procedure will prevent you from obtaining the maximum battery
charge, and will also shorten the effective lifespan of the battery.
In addition, the useful lifespan of the battery is adversely affected by
the following usage patterns:
• Using the computer on constant AC power with the battery
inserted. If you want to use constant AC power, you are advised to
remove the battery pack after it is fully charged.
• Not discharging and recharging the battery to its extremes, as
described above.
• Frequent use; the more you use the battery, the faster it will reach
the end of its effective life. A standard computer battery has a life
span of about 500 charges."

Not charging


Remove the primary battery pack and travel battery pack (if applicable) and plug the computer
into an AC outlet using the AC adapter. If the computer starts up, one of the battery packs
may need to be replaced.

if the computer does not start with a/c power connected. ensure the power outlet is providing power, otherwise you problem may be the motherboard, cpu or memory. please provide more details (ex. lights on and color, any beep secuences heard, procedure attempted, age of computer, how the problem came to be)

Acer Notebook 4330 No Power/No Charge


Hello,

If the Notebook is only 1 month old i suggest you bring it back and see if they will replace it. Most likely the problem (for how you have explained it) is that the DC power pin (inside the notebook) is either broken or not soldered to the mother board correctly.
Being only one month old this is probably a faulty pin or installation from the manufacturer so this should not be a problem for the place you got it from to replace.

If you do have problems I suggest contacting the manufacture immediately to see if they will replace it.

I hope this helped

Have a great day.

Dell inspiron 6400 battery pack problem


If your battery pack does not charge and power is being supplied by the AC adaptor to the computer then i would guess the cells are dead or maybe the connection to the battey has been damaged in some way. The best way to check is take it to a computer repair shop or spares shop and ask them to try it with a new battery if the same problem occurs then it is the connection or the ac adaptor. My solution would be try a new battery before you buy it to check if it is the problem.
