Acer laptop (aspire 5570z series) won't charge/turn on

My laptop doesn't turn on anymore. At first it was just having problem s charging, but now it won't charge at all. So now that the battery is dead, it won't come on at all (even if u take the battery out and try to just run t eh laptop on just the outlet). It seems that a componenet in the side of the laptop that feeds the power to the battery (or the laptop itself when the battery is remove) is malfuctioning. I was told it would be cheaper to just get a new laptop than fix it. That would really be a drag. Anyone know if i can fix it or if maybe Acer has a product that I can charge the battery by itself (externally) and then hoefully put the battery back in and power the comp?

    My laptop won't even turn on. When I plug it in with or without the battery, the front green charge light comes on but no response to pressing "power on".

    My acer notebook have the same problem. It is not charging the battery anymore. I had tested the voltage on the motherboard, it is giving me 19.5V on the jack (backside), and on pins 2 to 5 (I guess) on the connector to the motherboard when the circuit is separated from motherboard. When I put it in its place, the voltage goes to 1,7V~2,4V, and the motherboard remain dead. I tested the power supply and it is good. It seems that some component is in short to ground, but no component is overheating (they are all very cold).

    I don´t want to buy a new NB, if anyone has the answer, please tell us.

    I went to the store where I originally bought the laptop less than a year ago, and with much time wasted, they decided it was the battery that was the cause of my troubles. Well I came back home and took a look at it myself- turns out the pin where you plug it in is loose. My dad said he'd want to fix it himself- I've searched the internet and so far I've come up with the solution that it needs soldering to tighten it. (It would be a LOT of trouble to send it out, as Acer suggested, to the US and get it back- and I have high doubts that I would actually receive it back in time for school). Anyone have any idea how to open the laptop without damaging it- an informational websites, perhaps with pictures to aid the process. (My dad's a little apprehensive to open it himself because if he damages it, and worse comes to worse, if I do have to send it to Acer, we worry they won't fix it).I guess until I find a better solution I will continue to plug and pull the cable at different angles / propping it up with other household objects. Had I known this was this common a problem, Acer would not have been the route I'd have taken.

    Computer went off while surfing the web. Can't get it to power back up. When we try the power and battery lights both blink (yellow) a couple of times and then go back out. The power cord light is green, as always. Could it be the battery? Can you wear a battery out by leaving the laptop connected to the power cord after it has been fully charged?

    it stays at 4% and says plugged in, charging but never progresses above 4%. i have tried two different chargers and both give the same problem.

I have the same piece a junk,the poor design of the power conector allows the barely soldered center pin to come out with the charging conector,mine lasted about a year,it was tight when it was new, have always been very careful with it and it still broke ,what a joke ,If you pull the pin out of the conector slightly then put it in slowly until you see the charge light go on in front of the computer,it wil charge

Junk it as I did. Not worth the effort and money. When the first one broke they told me $400 to fix it. Get a Dell!

Your pproblem lies within the power management chip located on the motherboard. The motherboard needs to be replaced. Besides replacing the laptop, your other (cheapest)option is checking Ebay for a motherboard for your machine. If you have the patience, I recomend watching Ebay and bidding at the price you want to pay, eventually you'll get the bid.

Hi

Have you plugged in your power cord to the electric socket so that you can charge the battery
using the laptop with the power cord in while it is charging



so if there is not charge in the laptop at all maybe plug in and turn on socket switch
and leave to charge for an hour or so

then try to start laptop again

hope you can sort it
good luck
