Acer Aspire 5000 Laptop

I have an Acer Aspire 5000 Laptop. My laptop wil only run for about 20 minutes and it goes dead. This happens even if it is plugged into the wall outlet. I have tried a new battery, a new power cord, a new power supply on the motherboard.

When i charge my acer aspire the power button flashes


The DC jack in the laptop is showing early signs of intermittent issues, the jack is solded to the motherboard which sometimes breaks free over time, this is something that will eventually need to be addressed.

Hi,

This sounds like the laptop is faulty if within minutes the laptop is totally drained of power from a so-called full charge.
Because the laptop is new then I recommend that you send or take the laptop back for repair or replacement as it's still covered by the manufacturers warranty.




Regards.

Acer aspire 3610 power lead transformer green light is on before plugging into laptop then goes out when plugged in.acer has nothing working, totaly dead any ideas?


If the power LED is lit before connecting to your laptop and then goes out as soon as you connect to your laptop, then you either have a short circuit in the power supply module of your laptop, or you battery is causing the fault.

Remove the battery and try again. If it powers up the battery needs replacing. If the problem is still the same then you need someone to look at the power supply module in the laptop

Could be the power supply. (Likely built into the power cord). Heat could have been causing it to fail before. Possibly dead now!

Acer aspire 3680 laptop will not charge while plugged in wall


It appears that you have faulty laptop power connector socket.
This is why it appears to work sometimes when you plug the connector into the laptop in some direction.
To confirm this, wriggle the connector while you look at the charge light on the laptop, if it blinks as you wriggle it then the power socket is either faulty or just needs resoldering so it will make proper electrical contact.
You can get a compute techo to do this or you can do it yourself but it requires dismantling the laptop completely to get at this power socket.
