Yes that can be fixed and it is quite easy. You can just take it to any electronics shop some places might have to send it away but some will fix it right in store. They just need to solder a new connection in for you and takes about 10-15 mins.

    There is a cable that goes from the base to the screen and when it was dropped it may have pinch this cable causing it to not work correctly.

My laptop won't work on battery now!!

look at the bottom of the laptop where you install the battery, there's should be what looks like metal contacts where the battery connects to the actual computer. make sure that when you installed the battery you didn't accidentally bend 2 of them so they were touching eachother. you may have created a direct short which is what caused your heat and the smell. try to plug the battery back in and be careful that you don't bend the metal contacts.

The adapter light is on when first plugged in but then when I connect the adapter to my laptop the light goes off and it doesnt supply any power

I suggest check out the AC adapter first.

1) When plugged into power, and plugged into the laptop, gently wiggle the cable from the AC adapter TO laptop.

Any change?

Do the same on the power cord TO AC adapter.

Go on.

2) The port on the laptop that the plug from the AC adapter plugs into, is the DC Power Jack.
If we are discussing an Acer Aspire 5738Z Notebook PC, the DC Power Jack resembles this one, (Not installed),

(When I note the DC Power Jack, it is this link I will be referring to )

As you can see there is a Center Pin. All power removed from the laptop, use a small wooden, or plastic object, and see if this pin moves around.

ANY perceptible movement means a bad DC Power Jack.

DC Power Jack checks out it's back to the AC adapter.
Wanted to perform the easy diagnosis first.

This will require a multimeter. An economical, yet fine for this test multimeter, can be purchased for as little as $8 to $12.

Available in a multitude of stores. An auto parts store is but one example.
Analog or digital is fine.

(Analog is fine. Some of us still like 'em)

DC Voltage is what you are going to check.

Black probe lead (Negative) goes in the Common port on the multimeter. (COM)
Red probe lead (Positive) goes in the Voltage port on the multimeter. (V)

If the multimeter just has symbols around the Function Knob, set it to the dotted line over a solid line, symbol.

The plug on the end of the AC adapter, that plugs into the laptop, has a center hole, and a cylindrical metal shield surrounding it.

The Center Hole of the plug is where the red Positive lead, of the multimeter goes.

The outside cylindrical metal shell is where the black Negative lead of the multimeter goes.

Hold the AC adapter plug in one hand, and at the same time hold the red Positive multimeter probe in the center hole.

With the other hand touch the black Negative lead of the multimeter, to the cylindrical metal shield on the outside of the plug.

You should read 19 Volts (DC), or VERY close to it,

I believe the AC adapter is the problem. Post back in a Comment as to your findings.

How to change cmos battery

It's quite simple. First of all you have to turn off your computer and unplug all device cords from the back. Lay the computer facing up on the floor/table. Now, you have to locate the CMOS battery (It's similar to a watch - a little bigger though). It is on the motherboard held on by thin metal tabs. Some computers have the battery flat against the board while others have it in an upright slot. Use your fingernails to remove the CMOS battery and gently lift the metal tab. It is so weak that it can break easily. Do not lift the tab all the way or pull it off. Take the fingernail and place it under the battery in the casing and easily lift it up then pull it out. The last thing you have to do is replacing the panel and plugging in your devices.

I hope it works! Have a nice day!

My Acer aspire aoa 150 will not charge. Its not the charger or battery It seems to be that little thing inside the computer that transfers it. Any idea as to how i may be able to fix that?


If you wiggle the cable where it connects to the laptop and the power goes on and off, the power jack (inside the laptop) needs repair or replacement.

Hope this helps.

I have an acer aspire 3690, and when I plug the power cord in to the laptop, the battery does not charge any more. What is wrong with it?

It one of two things wrong here,

1) have your replace the battery yet?

2) Does your AC cord work properly?

Check that and let me know.

Acer aspire 3500 wont hold charge or turn on

I had to buy an new ac/dc plug piece off of ebay (cost only like $3 bucks) to sodder onto the mother board of my Acer. Somehow the little plastic/metal piece you plug into your computer comes off the mother board really easy. Acer wanted me to purchase a whole new mother board (at frigging $350), which, frankly wasn't an option. So I bought the little plug gizmo, soddered it on, and I'm doing good now.

Alt key pulled off

Well, it could snap back on, or the little metal springy thing has to be in place first. try gently popping ANOTHER key and seeing how it is held on...
