Either the battery is exhausted or the adapter is faulty. You didn't say whether the laptop was working with the adapter, if it is then you require a new battery.
Ebay!
Hope that helps.

My aspire switch 10 won't power up. When it is plugged in the amber light on the tablet lights up and that is all.


Amber usually indicates that the batter is charging. If it never changes to green, you may need a new battery. Try taking out the battery and plugging in the charger. Sometimes a dead battery can actually block the power from getting to the device.

Acer aspire one shows no power light when charger is plugged in...charger shows 6 volts


Hello, I'll do my best to help you out.
The Acer One have one weird problem, and that is of the mother board. "Naaahh, how can that be?" you may ask. The BIOS in the motherboard have a bug, in which in a certain amount of time it will shut down the Netbook and it will give you the impression that it's dead. But it isn't. As you posted it here, the power supply is working fine. I'm not sure if it's still available, but there is a patch, which it will allow you to flash and fix the Netbook. Now, I'm not able to share the patch with you just because there is no detIl on your Netbook, for example, I own an Acer One ZG5. If yours happen to be the same exact model, let me know and I'll do everything I can to share the patch with you and how to flash it.

Hi there, It seams charger or battery is faulty. It is hard to say which of the 2 is faulty as alot of laptops will not run if the battery is not installed. I would advise you take it in for repairs so they can test your battery and charger.

1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
4. The power button could be bad.
5. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

Problem with extended battery


LED indicator for your laptop model
Steady Blue = Battery charged and AC adapter plugged in
Amber = Battery charging and AC adapter plugged in
Slow Amber Flash = <10% battery life
Fast amber flash = 3% remaining TPC will automatically go into hibernate
Slow flashing amber Adapter plugged in = Overheat condition

Do you have a multimeter to test the battery that you are using? check the output current of the battery.

unplug everything that isn't necessary to run the laptop ie, external mouse, battery, etc. Then plug the ac adapter in, making sure the switch for 110/220 is appropriate for your region. Now, does the machine turn on? PLease respond with the answer, and we'll go from there. Good luck
