ACER 3680 will not power up

My acer 3680 laptop will not power on. The power cord when plugged in to the wall shows a bright green light, but when you plug the other end into the computer it gets dim and flikers. I tried taking the battery out and only use the wall plug but still the same. I tried another power cord and still the same. Any ideas? Maybe the power jack?

    How do you check out the PC cooling fan if the computer will not power up at all? Thel light flickers on the power cord not the computer itself. I plug the computer in and press the power button and nothing happens. Its like no power to the computer.



    Thanks

Hello, am temab concerniong your problem on powering your system right?
I hope the best thing for you to do is by checking whether the processor cooling fan is running cause that causes the system not to power on or power on and before short seconds it flickers and go on off again . there is nothing wrong with your power jack. If the problem is that the pc fan is not rolling then change the fan but if the fan is roling then change the processor itself. any other question?

My screen is black but the green light is on. What's wrong?


• TAKE OUT YOUR LAPTOP BATTERY
• REMOVE YOUR AC ADAPTOR CORD, that's the wall power, remove it.
• NOW HOLD DOWN THE POWER BUTTON FOR 30 SECONDS

That will drain any static electricity that has built up on your laptop system board and many times fixes the problem of a black screen. After the 30 seconds re-connect your laptop to the wall power and hit the power button normally and see if the laptop comes back up.Else replace your battery.

MY acer aspire 3680 not powering on. The light on the power cord is on but the light at the front of the laptop is not showing. I took out the battery and replaced it no differennce. I held down the power...


When you wriggle the plug in the power socket on the laptop and the charge LED flashes and in the right position it charges, this indicates that the power socket is faulty or there is a dry solder joint on the motherboard where this power socket is attached.
To get at the power socket will require dismantling the laptop completely.
If you are confident, can dismantle, reassemble a laptop and use a temperture controlled solder iron then try and fix it. If not a computer repair shop can do the repair, I suggest you get a quote first.

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.

NO POWER


Heyy don't panic. I know its very costly to replace mother board or power supply SMPS. And i assures you that neither its mother board problem nor power problem. Its a problem with your RAM only. If RAM is faulty then laptop starts giving same problem.
So, please go & replace your RAM. Its not that must costly also. So you can easily afford also and new RAM will boost the performance of your laptop.

Acer aspire 3690 will not boot, shows 2 blinking amber lights


It's possible that the laptop has a bad power interface (internal). If at possible, I'd exchange/return the new AC adapter and try again. If the problem persists, contact the manufacturer.

Hope this help!
