Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook
I can not get my laptop to power up. I have it plugged in but the battery won't charge and it won't power up. I even bought a new cord thinking the old one shorted out but the new one won't work. Help!
Your dc jack is failed and needs to be replaced. You can go to DCJACKREPAIR.NET and pay $125 fixed price to have the jack repaired/replaced

Remove your battery, then use only the AC adaptor, if is the same the problem is from your Mainboard/ check to supplier if is still warranty. So that you can claim for it.

Return it! It's a factory defect they just admitted to it online. Call HP and they'll fill you in on the details.

Could be down to a few things. First it is worth checking all the connections and making sure they are good and clean.
Im presuming that if it wont charge, it dies when you disconnect from the mains? If not let the battery die completely and then recharge fully. Discharging, Charging & discharging is also an effective method of calibrating the battery
If the battery gets hot while plugged in, you should remove the battery and allow everything to cool down (some systems have a CMOS setting to prevent over charging, this can take 3-5 days in a cool environment to unlock the battery)
Have a look at the power options in the control panel and make sure everything is reset to default settings.
I once disable hibernate option for a troublesome dell and this allowed the battery to take a charge.
A more aggressive route is to check the bios settings and check if you need to update
It is worth noting that if the laptop is new (or still in warranty) bring it back, it could be a faulty battery, which is not unheard of!

SOURCE: Acer power cord
if you can use your notebook without the battery with the power cord attached, then the battery ist defective. If your notebook doesn't power on at all without battery, then the power cord is faulty.
