Question about Acer Aspire 6920 Notebook PC
Hi Roe - It then is almost certain that the problem is your external A/C adapter. Until this gets sorted out I wouldn't keep plugging it into the laptop...it may be capable of doing damage to your PC. There is also a possibility that is the A/C circuity inside the machine.
The easiest thing to do (if you have the ability) is to use a voltmeter and measure the actual current coming out of the adapter. Most people don't have access to one so I'd recommend you take the adapter to a local electronics store (Like Radio Shack in the U.S.) and ask them to check the current (It should be outputting 19Volts DC @ 3.42 Amps or something very close.
The above assumes the machine is out of warranty. If not, obviously you should give Acer tech support a call and proceed there.
Should you discover that it is the A/C adapter and is out of warranty you should purchase a replacement adapter such as the ones listed HERE and you'll be back up and running.
Thanks for inquiring at Fix Ya

You must have a short in your power supply. Is it the original power supply? If it is not then I would suggest that maybe you have the voltage and or amperage set wrong. If it is the original Power supply then Have you or someone you know take a volt meter and check it for proper voltage at the connector.
