Question about Acer Aspire 5610-4648 Notebook

Open Question

I have an Acer Aspire 4937 and it will not run on AC power. If I remove the battery it will not boot at all. The light on the button comes on briefly and then goes off again. When I run the laptop with battery and AC power the battery discharges and will not charge while the laptop is on. If I shut down and leave the AC power connected the battery then charges. What could be wrong here?

SOURCE: Acer Aspire 1640 power problem

Will the unit work without the battery? The new Lithium Ion batteries can be overcharged and then cause all kinds of strange problems. Take the battery to a reputable electronics shop or Batteries Plus and have them run a voltage and current test. The current test being the most revealing. If either of these is higher than the level printed on the battery, dispose of it. Also, check ACER's web site for battery problems. All the computer manufacturers have had battery problems.

Good Luck

SOURCE: Wont boot up. A/C connected, battery fully charged. Just flashes green light for 1 second when you press power on button.

Hi I am Vortash sorry to say that power supply fault seems to be the most likely answer to this .. and to be honnest with laptops that was 50% of the problems I fixed .. they are also quite exspensive retail so I tend to search on Amazon or Ebay for them .
I have had this problem with a faulty hard drive also it was shorted out so the computer just shut down .. whatevetr it turns out to be this is one for a skilled engineer as replacing components on a 12 layer multiple circuit requires special soldering equipment and conditions and a fair amount of dexterity and skill good eyesight and the patience of a God lol . you could try another hard drive yourself that isn't to difficult if you can borrow or buy a cheap one .. and you can always get a caddy for it after and us it as a secondry drive on the usb if your own isn't faulty .. I hope this helps Vortash

choose to boot on the vista partition and imidiatly press F8 several times to get the vista boot menu.

choose "repair computer"

see if there is a option called something like
ACER recovery /factory image / something similar (usually the bottom option)

if there is, click it and start recovery.

Earlier today I was using my Acer Aspire with no problems. Now when I try to boot it up, the green power light comes on, the fan starts whirring but thats it. The screen stays black and it can sit there...


Thank you for choosing FixYa!

This can still be fixed by doing power drain.
>Take the battery out of the computer
>Unplug the ac adapter from the computer.
>Press and hold the power button for about 15secs.
>Let go of the power button.
>Put the battery and plug the ac adapter back into the computer.
>Turn the computer back on.

You should get the display to come up. For a more detailed instruction, please visit http://www.fixya.com/support/r6013536-computer_turns_but_no_display

Thank you for choosing FixYa! have a nice day!

My acer on one netbook wont boot up, the power light comes on but nothing else,


Try removing any external device first (ex. USB device) then draining the flea power:

1. Remove the battery and ac adapter
2. Press and hold the power button for at least 10sec.
3. Put back the battery and ac adapter
4. Turn on the computer

Hope this helps

Wont turn on.. battery light just keeps falshing


Hi,

Thanks for using FixYa.

You have a dead battery if your battery light just keeps on flashing and your laptop only works when plugged in to the A/C. Try to take out the battery and plug your laptop in to A/C. See if it works. You might be one of the unlucky ones who got a lemon battery. Several users have enountered the same exact problem. This is an Aspire one issue. Try to contact acer and see if they will send you a new battery right away. I hope this helps.

Thanks and have a nice day.

Acer aspire one power button comes on but screen doesn't come on.


1/ Take a close look at the display in bright light; can you see anything there? (If so then the CCFL (or its power supply) needs replacing on the display
2/ hook up an external monitor and see if that works (or at least if the light stays green on the monitor)
3/ Any boot beep? any "Windows sound"?
4/ try removing the battery and (using only external power) see if it starts.
4/ remove the battery AND the external supply, hold the power switch in at least 30 seconds. Hoojk it up again, try it.

Acer Aspire 5920 will not boot at all...


The power button may not work, that is most common in laptops, or you have a short.

Acer Aspire 5520 would not proceed to boot up


Tried replacing the memory. It worked for me. I tried removing battery, harddrive etc. Same thing: briefly power light on and fan on and then both off.

Pc will not come on. Runs Hot. Will not click off.


have you tried to remove the battery and disconnect the ac-power?

then reinsert the ac-power (without battery)
and try to boot.

if that doesnt work:
remove battery and ac.
turn computer upside down. under one of the lids there will be 1 or 2 memory modules (ram). take them out
insert ac
try to start the computer (yes, without the ram modules)
leave the computer on (with black screen) a couple of seconds.
remove the ac
insert the ram again.
insert ac
try to boot again.

Acer Aspire Computer Does not Turn on


The light you are seeing usually is a sign that the battery is discharged. Although you say the battery shows that it is fully charged, it is possible that the battery is fully discharged or defective. You should disconnect the battery from the pc and try powering on with the ac adapter. Although no way to per say "force reboot," removing all power sources (ac adapter and battery) should in essence reset the motherboard.
