Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop
It is VERY difficult to break a wire or connection internally dropping, shaking, or otherwise damaging the laptop. But I'm going to try and give you an answer without just telling you, "the batteries bad get a new one."
That said, typically batteries either are good and hold a charge or they are bad and they don't. There isn't a lot to a laptop between the battery and power-supply. So, assuming the laptop is in fairly good condition, you will probably just need to replace the battery.
A lot can make the battery fail faster than it should. I've been told for example that running on a car phase converter all the time to charge your batteries, no running on batteries very often so that your always charging, etc. can lower battery life.
The only other problem I can think related to batteries is where the contacts have become corroded on the battery itself or in the laptop where the battery connects, which is something you should be able to visibly see.
If this is the case however and they are rusty, you can clean them off with a pencil eraser, cotton swab and sprite, or alcohol.
You can also use an ohmmeter to check the voltage both from the machine and in the battery itself.
Hopefully something here will help you with your problem.
