Re: My laptop
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.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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.
1) When plugged into power, and plugged into the laptop, gently wiggle the cable from the AC adapter TO laptop.
Do the same on the power cord TO AC adapter.
NO? 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),
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.
u try one thing just shutdown laptop remove battery and charger from laptop then after push power button for 1 minute after that install battery and charger. but not start laptop and check that charging led of laptop is running if it's runnig then put in same condition for 3 to 4 hours after that start laptop using battery only after proper booting when os load attech the charger and check charging status.
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.
