Laptop battery won't charge - Acer Aspire 4520

Hello everyone, last night my Acer Aspire 4520 worked fine. I didn't drop it and i take good care of it. Earlier this morning, I was playing CoD 4 using the battery. I pressed the POWER button by accident, and I configured it that when I were to press it, it would hibernate.

I resumed windows after it hibernated and continued playing. After 5 minutes, the laptop started hibernating, reason: low battery. I went to eat breakfast, and came back 20 mins later. I pressed the power button again but no lights flashed (it usually flashes indicating low battery charge). I plugged it in and turned it on. When I got into windows, it displayed 0% charging. I left it for about 30 mins and it's still the same.

I'm running windows vista home prem. btw, if that affects anything. Is it a problem with the battery? I'm still under warranty, so can Acer or the place where I bought it (the Computer Authority, Sm Megamall, Philippines) fix it?

Or should I just leave it charging for a while?.

Please help me, I'd really appreciate it.


Thank you,
Arvee.

    Yeah, I thought of doing that on a weekend. I just did that, nothing's dirty. This laptop's only 8 months old. I turned my laptop off and let it charge, it's been 3 hours, and it still displays 0%. I'm just surprised, because my other laptop, eMachines, is 4 years old; and yet it's battery works great.

Since is shows it as charging then your power cable should be working. So it looks like a battery issue but batteries just don't die unless a cell inside dies then they will stop working. Try taking the battery off and making sure that the connections are clean then put it back in. If that doesn't work give the battery a good full charge then bring the battery and laptop back to where you bought it and get them to test the battery to see if a cell died.

It sounds like the battery charging ac cable might be faulty.. You might want to go to a local shop and see if they could try another cable before you go out and spend money on a new one. They usually will try a cable to see if that's the problem.. Please let me know if this washelpful and if it solved the problem and good luck..

Acer aspire laptop won't charge


Hi,
First of all you have to determine whether it's the battery, charger or the laptop itself.
Remove the battery and boot the laptop on AC power only, if the laptop boots up you can rule out the charger and the laptop, you may need a new battery if that is the case.



Regards.

Still on Wireless Problem


If your laptop is the 4520, you need to download and install one of the wireless drivers (last 2 on the list) from http://www.laptops-drivers.com/acer-notebooks/free-download-driver-acer-aspire-4520.html (Check to see which one your laptop has, in Control Panel/System/Hardware/Device Manager.

If it's the 4530, look here http://seoroot.com/blog/driver-downloads/acer-aspire-4530-and-acer-aspire-4520g-windows-xp-drivers-download.html
