First try starting the machine without the battery, only the charger, Then check the charger with an ohm meter to see if it's working properly. The out put readings are listed on the charger. In case of a surge, the charger is designed to go out first before damaging the system. However, this is not always the case. If the charger checks good, then you should take it in for a professional diagnostic because the problem may be with the power management system on the motherboard. One thing to keep in mind for future reference is when moving to a different location with your laptop, when unplugging the charger, always unplug the charger from the laptop before unplugging from the wall socket, and when plugging in, always plug the charger into the wall socket before plugging into the laptop. This will keep from surging your system.

I have the same problem, the cause was that my puppy used to chew on cord. you have to see if something happened to the cord. if yes,
you could get the thing to work by twisting the wire a lot and clearing the short. or
you could the cord and separate the three layers of wire inside then use duck tape.

If you charger is beeping that means it's shorted. It's a swiching powersupply and when they get overloaded the inductivities inside the circuit can start to vibrate and emit a sound. Don't plug this charger in anymore. It's best to get a replacement from a third party Laptop Shop.

The battery is fully charged, and the ac adapter is plugged into the laptop, when i push the on button the laptop will not start


Remove the battery and power source. Remove the RAM and hdd. Power up with the power supply and it should do something. If it does, replace the RAM and hdd it should now restart. If nothing, check the GPU.

3gfi plugs on a coachman Aurora do not bathroom bedroom work fine.


sometimes, a GFI will be controlled by another GFI. Did you "reset" the GFI ( if there is one ) in the bathroom? You have to find out where
The wires in the dead GFI come from. Electrical panel....circuit breakers. Did you flip each circuit breaker off then on to reset them ?
Do you have an electrical meter ? let me know then we will go from there.

How to enable bluetooth


Your computer has to have a bluetooth radio. You can check
Control Panel > System and Security > Device Manager
Do you see a Bluetooth Radio listed?

If not, you don't have BlueTooth on your computer so you will have to add a BlueTooth device by plugging one into a USB port.

If you have a BlueTooth radio, go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device and Printers > Add a Bluetooth Device

This option is used to connect a blue tooth device (e.g. bluetooth headphons) to your laptop through your bluetooth radio.

See this Windows web page for more information.
Set up Bluetooth enabled device

I will respond to any additional questions you have.

Button keeps blinking


It sounds like it could be either the battery is going bad and not holding a charge or the adapter is. I have had really good luck with similar problems going to places like Batteries +, and large electronic retailers, and my favorite the small local mom and pop computer store; where I end up asking them If I could try one of the adapters from the floor model to eliminate if is a faulty adapter. Other then that I'd if its not out of warranty contact Acers online chat support at http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/service
