Harvester3 makes a point here most likely the battery is gone, don't worry it happens quite often batteries have a life time and they need to be replaced. Good luck!

Are you sure the battery is good? How old is the system and battery? Do you have any way to check voltage at the battery terminals?

SOURCE: I can not charge battery on laptop or run on ac.

How are you sure that the power is getting through? Is the AC light on the computer on steady? Does it blink if you bump the connector?

So often the jack of the adapter or within the machine fails. Often if the jack feels loose on the computer, it is bad.

However, if none of that applies, I would go into the control panel and look at all the power settings to see if anything is unreasonable. Similarly, I'd look at the BIOS settings. (You may have to hit a particular key, like F10, when the machine boots --- there should be information on the screen, in the manual or at the Acer site.)

If that doesn't turn up anything, I would check the BIOS version and carefully follow the instructions to load a newer version if one is available or reload the previous version. Why? I don't exactly know, but when I had a Sony VAIO machine witih similar symptoms tech support suggested this and it did work.

SOURCE: Acer aspire laptop won't charge

Hi,
First of all you have to determine whether it's the battery, charger or the laptop itself.
Remove the battery and boot the laptop on AC power only, if the laptop boots up you can rule out the charger and the laptop, you may need a new battery if that is the case.



Regards.

SOURCE: battery not charging

As you have tried to replace battery and still new battery is not getting charged in this case it seems there is hardware problem. Circuit which allows battery to charge is not working.

SOURCE: ac adapter connection inside laptop doesnt work, light for battery charging will not turn on and will not charge

It's more likely your dc power jack was loose or broken. It need to be resoldered.

Acer aspire 5332 plugged in but not charging


it sounds like one of three things:

1. Battery itself no longer functions
2. Laptop Charger has inadequate amperage
3. The motherboard is defective (most likely).

If you have another battery, or a friend with the same battery, you can try that first (and someone else's laptop charger).

Take the battery out. Unplug the charger from the computer. Press the On button for 30 seconds. Then plug the charger in. If it works, then put the battery back in and you're in business again.If it doesn't work, the most likely cause is the laptop charger. Use a new one to confirm:

My acer aspire one battery doesn't work. How do I check if the battery works or not


If you want to know if your battery works or not. Heres a simple way.

Use your laptop without using the AC charger. If the Laptop stays on for atleast 30mins and above that means your battery is ok. specially if the laptop stays on for 4-5 hours, your battery is working 100%.

Hope my solution help.

BATTERY DOESN'T CHARGE ON MY ACER ASPIRE ONE MOD#KAV60


Sounds like the battery might be bad. Try another battery in the laptop and see if it charges. If it does then you know the other battery is bad.
If you try another known working battery and it still wont charge, then try another AC Adapter. If you still cant get the laptop battery to charge then at that point the motherboard is bad because you will have tried another working batter and another working ac adapter.

Battery not charging


Sounds like it may be the FSB. I had the same sort of problem, though my Aspire was only a few months old and therefore covered under Acer's warranty, but I also have after sales repair insurance too. Either way, I would strongly suggest that you get an engineer to take a look
