Its probably the battery. They do have a finite life. Especially if its not been discharged/re-charged fully and fairly regularly. You loose them if you don't use them and stay plugged into the mains most of the time.

If you laptop is a couple of years old or more, then more than likely the battery has died.

The battery sounds like it needs to be replaced. Best prices on EBAY. Just enter the model of the computer and the word "battery"

Fujitsu SIEMENS LIFEBOOK not starting no power in

Check the power adaptor to see if the power is coming out, as well as there is mains power going into it. The laptop should operate without the battery, if the power adaptor works.

My acer laptop can not power on. No lights or sound coming from it. I have no idea of what to do to rectify the problem.Please help if you can.

Please check the adapter for voltage, if absent check the adaptor.

Also check the battery voltage, is lower than marked then replace if the charging does not improve.

Finally if both the battery and adaptor is working fine then the hardwre of the laptop is faulty , possible the main board or power supply within. Take help from Acer support for estimate.

I get a pop up note that the power supply in insufficent, and then the computer shuts off. Other times it works fine.

The message you are getting is telling you the battery is discharged, UNLESS you are plugged into the mains, in that case, the battery is not charging and the adaptor is not supplyig power to the laptop.
You may have a faulty charging circuit, a loose connection from the DC jack to the DC socket on the laptop, or a failing adaptor.

Check the above and repost if not solved

Battery charging problem

Possible that the battery is faulty. Some Acer models have been found to have very poor battery life due to the quality of the battery that is put into economical models.
So if there is reduction of time in your back up even after the laptop chows that the battery is fully charged, then it is the fault of the battery .
But if there is no charging indication of the battery in the laptop, then the mains adaptor can be faulty.
If adaptor is working then the charging circuit in the laptop mother board has an issue and needs probing .
Must be taken out and checked by experienced hands so as not to damage the main board .

Laptop does not work off mains and battery does not charge

Just check the power connection from the AC going to your laptop if the power adaptor of your laptop are working. Note; you only know that the power adaptor was working if the LED (Light Emiting Diode) was light because the power adaptor are have the LED to see it that they are working normally. If the power adaptor working normally their was a problem of the power supply inside your laptop and need to be repair by the electronic service center. But if the power adaptor are not working the problem are in the power adaptor. I recommend that you replace your power adaptor and bring it to the computer store to check its type and model it is because only same type or model of that power adaptor to be replace.

Ac adapter will not charge my computer

If the laptop will run from the adaptor, then the adaptor is probably fine. That being the case, if the charge light flashes when the adaptor is plugged in, the battery is faulty. No charge light on an otherwise working system is probably the battery charging circuit in the laptop.
