SOURCE: 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.

It could be the cord, if it is frequently bent right at the connector the wires inside can be broken. You can obtain a replacement plug that can be soldered onto the wires from RadioShack. you'll need to cut the old plug off, about an inch from the connector to make sure you eliminate the bad part of the wire. You must be sure to get the polarity of the plug correct or you can damage the PC or the battery. The power pack may have a diagram with the polarity.

It could also be the power jack on the PC itself. With frequent use the jack solder joints could have cracked and are no longer making a connection. They can be re-soldered to correct the problem, but it is a tedious task to take it apart to get to it.

If you have a MultiMeter, Analog or Digital (DMM) you can use it to test the power pack for output, as well as use it to determine the polarity. With the meter connected you can bend the wire to see if it breaks the power connection, if it does you just need to replace the plug.

Hope this helps :)

SOURCE: Battery will not charge/ keep computer on. laptop

Sounds to me like the transformer circuit that enables the batery to charge. If you have bought your machine within the last 12 months it should still be covered by warranty so go back to the supplier. If not covered I wouod still try as it is not beyond reasonable expecations that the machine will operate perfectly in very way for more than 1 year.

Acer aspire 3004 battery not charging


Hello.

The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.
Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

My laptop battery i guess hit critical stage but now the system wont work with ac power


DC connector problem:

Symptoms of a broken power jack
1. If you wiggle the power cord or the AC Adapter connector on the back of the laptop, the power LED and battery charge LED start to flicker.
2. Battery will not charge in the laptop.
3. Laptop runs fine off a charged battery.
4. With the AC Adapter connected the laptop appears to be dead.
No power LED or battery charge LED activity.
5. Laptop randomly powers off without any warning.

If your laptop is out of warranty, then you can fix the problem by re-soldering DC-IN jack on the system board. If it

Acer aspire 5536 wont boot up


remove power cord, pull out battery, press and hold the power button for 10 full seconds. Wait 1 minute, place battery back in and then power cord. Then try it. This should work. If by chance it does not, check your memory chips because an effective one will prevent boot up. You can remove one at a time and try booting to see if one is faulty.

You still need to test the AC cord better.. Wiggling it in different areas to see if there is a break in the wires.... That is why i said watch for the Power light (when I say Power Light, not the one on the ac adapter cord... the power light on your laptop...)to see if it flickers or turns off at any point while you're testing the cord... If you have a Solid Lighted Power Light the whole time youre testing the AC cord (bending & wiggling it) then it is probably not the cord itself and i would then lean towards the DC jack...

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.
