Question about Acer Aspire 1642WLMi Notebook
My daughter took a flight and when returning home she tried to powerup her notebook but it will not come on. The power supply light is steady green until plugged into the notebook and then it blinks (steadily) and is not as bright. the notebook worked fine before her trip and while she was there she did not use it at all. she did check it as baggage at the the airport on the return flight. she has no manual or disk for it either. she gave it to me and said if I get it to work its mine...help!
The fact that the light on the power supply is a brighter green and them dims when plugs is certainly a key factor. I would say there are three possible problems. 1) The first problem to check is by far the easiest. Try removing the battery from the laptop and then hooking up the power supply. Do you get the same result. If it works then replace the battery. Problems two and three are unfortunately a lot harder to tell without having a spare power supply. Not to sound stupid but you've either got a problem with the power supply or laptop. If it is the laptop then you'll likely want to toss it out as you would need to send it off for repair. If it is the power supply then that can be replaced fairly cost effectively. Places like best buy and radio shack sell universal power adapters for laptops which could be used to test for the power supply being the issue. Perhaps you could bring it to the tech bench at best buy and ask if they have an adapter you can try before you buy. Radio shack might also let you do the same thing. If all else fails, perhaps you could return the adapter if you purchased it and it didn't solve the problem. Good luck.
