From your description, your battery is losing its charge and needs to be replaced.

I'm experiencing charging problems with my own system and I noticed that the A/C adapter is very slightly frayed. So, check your A/C adapter as well and be certain that it is charging when you leave your system charging overnight. If you are still experiencing a problem, replace your battery.

Hope this helps.

Acer netbook battery cannot reach 100% charge?

As rechargeable batteries age they build up what is called a 'memory' or a 'charge memory'....

Let me explain how this have a new battery and you run your laptop normally until it hits 15% charge then you charge it up and use it again until about 15% then charge it again....with the charge only dropping to 15% the battery builds up a 'memory' of that over a period of time (usually over at least a year up to a couple years) and then your battery's maximum capacity is no longer 100%. Same thing happens if you dont charge it fully each time, after a while it becomes incapable of taking a full charge.

What you can do to stop that in the future....when you get a new battery every now and then run its charge down to 1% then charge it to maximum. By doing that on a regular basis you help make sure the battery remembers its full charge capacity.

Acer Aspire 5738Z won't hold charge

Sorry. It seems that your battery is dead.
If your laptop is working fine on AC power only (with the battery disconnected), then your battery will need to be replaced.

If you are looking for Drivers then I would recommend an Automatic Driver Download Tool that can detect all your installed hardware, search, download and install all the required latest model and manufacturer specific drivers automatically.

Regarding the Battery, some intelligent batteries remember the charge. If the first time you do not let it discharge completely, then it remembers that setting and never charges more than that. So just try discharging your batteries to zero percent and try recharging it. I am sure it will charge to 100% this time. Read more at

Pc is telling me to plug it in when the battery is at 90%

The battery needs to be conditioned. To condition a battery, plug in the AC adaptor and charge it to 100%. Unplug the AC adaptor and run the battery completely down to 0% or until the computer shuts itself down or goes into a hibernate mode. Once this occurs, plug the AC adaptor back in and fully re-charge the battery to 100% again. You should now be good to go.

Let me know what happens and if this has solved your problem. Thank you, Binary Bob
