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.

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"
choose user (and type in password if there is any)
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.
if there isnt i would contact acer and have them send me a new recoverysett. (4-6 weeks deliverytime)

try removing the battery from the computer and turning on the computer to see if the power cord works correctly if it does inspect the battery and clean the terminals on the battery and computer and put the battery back in while it is still on now you should see the battery show up on the taskbar if not right click anywhere on the desktop and go to properties and than go to than go to screensaver than look towards the bottom and you will see power click on it and you should see the options for the battery ok sorry this was so long but i needed to explain it in full
please dont forget to rate this
best regards mike
