Question about Computers & Internet
I have an acer aspire 4920g and charging mechanism does not charge my battery so therefore i can not use it running on batery i wish to know how i can fix the problem and how much would it cost me to see whether i should buy a new laptop. first i thought its was a battery problem so i bought brand new battery but it does not charging the new battery and then i realise that the charging mechanism of my laptop failed coz the charging light do not turn on when i plug in the adaptor . thanking you for answer my posted problem. i also replace a brand new charger and currently running my laptop with it but its still doesnt charge my battery. my conclusion is that charging mechanism in the main board is gone and if u know a way to fix that part without replacing a main board or the name for that part so i can buy it and fix it myself. my next move would be open it up and testing the power supply do have a fault and can i just replace the power supply instead of the main board?
Most laptops, as in 99%, have one board and everything is on it. They don't really have a power supply since the AC adpater provides DC voltage already. There is just a voltage divider that take the incomming voltage and changes it to the various voltages the machine needs. The charging mechanism is also on the mainboard. I've very seldom seen a seperate power or charging board in a laptop. Unfortunately since you've already replaced the battery and the ac adapter and since the adapter is powering the laptop then there is definitely a problem with the charging circuitry on the mainboard. This isn't something one can repair unless you start changing micro components and ICs on the board which isn't recommended. Looks like a new mainboard or a new laptop is in your future if you want it to run off battery.
Another option is to get an external battery that mimics your ac adapter but that wouldn't give you a very long run time compared to the internal battery.
