    Blinking green light on the laptop AC adapter

    If your laptop ac adapter also known as a power supply has a blinking or flashing green light and the laptop / notebook system does not power up at all while the ac adapter is plugged into the laptop, then you have a short on the motherboard.

    What are the symptoms of the short on the laptop motherboard?

    You plug in your ac adapter into the wall ac power outlet; the light on the ac adapter is solid green at that time. As soon as you connect the ac adapter’s plug into the laptop the light on the ac adapter dims and does not show green at all until the next time you unplug the ac adapter from the laptop and from the wall or the ac adapter could simply be blinking green. At the same time system does not power up from the ac adapter.

    What this means?
    This means that once the short is being encountered the AC adapter, power brick, power supply shuts itself down, once it shuts itself down the green light goes out. If the ac adapter is more advance it tries to restart itself thus the blinking light. Every time ac adapter restarts the shortage happens and thus the light comes up and dims out.

    Is it fixable?
    No, if you do it yourself. There isn’t a device out there that could show you where the short is at on the motherboard.

    Can we fix it?
    Maybe. The chances for dell computers that have a blinking light are about 60% that we can fix it because we know what to look for, again there are no tools out there that can identify where the short is at but since we are in business of power repairs on laptop computers we for the most part know where to look for the short. Again chances for dell computers are 60%. For all other computers are about 40% chance that we will find where the short is at. Again we can only fix it if the light goes out on the ac adapter, or keeps blinking green whenever you plug in the ac adapter into the laptop. Keep in mind we are one of very few companies, maybe the only one in U.S. that can actually fix that shortage issue.

    How much would it cost to fix it?
    There is no diagnostic or any other fees. We only charge you if the system is working fine after the repair. The price structure is as follows.
    If you send the whole laptop to us with the ac adapter we will need 2 checks from you, first check for $10 to cover the return shipping back to you the second check is for $115 for labor. If we fix the laptop and it works fine we keep both checks $10+$115 = $125. If we won’t fix the laptop and it does not work fine then we only keep the $10 check to cover our return shipping cost. Or just make sure to include prepaid return label and don't worry about the $10 check for return shipping.

    Turnaround times?
    We keep the system here no more than 24 hours.

    Where to send the laptop to?
    1) Make checks out to Applicasoft. One for $10 another one for $115
    2) Make a note specifically stating that you have a short on the motherboard
    3) Make a note saying where to ship the laptop back to, as well as your phone number and email address if you want us to send the tracking number to your email address.

    Send WELL PACKAGED laptop with the AC adapter to:

    710 MILL CIRCLE #107
    WHEELING, IL 60090

Hi, Try running you laptop with the battery and the AC adapter. If by plugging in your adapter there is no light indicator likewise or no powering up, then presumably there is a problem with the power supply circuitry in the motherboard. Normally the laptop should work with just the adapter, just the battery or both the battery and the adapter. If it will not perhaps your best bet is to seek professional repair service since this would require opening the motherboard. In most instances, this involves an smc fusible link, regulator transistors or even just cold solder or loose connections. Hope this be of some help/idea. post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

I left charging my acer aspire 3560 last night. The next day i found the cable underneath the laptop the whole time it was charged so i disconnected the charger away from the laptop to unbend it and used the laptop until it died. So the next thing I do is connect the charger to charge my laptop and nothing happens!! It does not charge there no battery light indicator , it turned on for about 2 min and on icon battery it did not show the charger plugged in but it was plugged in. After that it died entirely and does not charge or nothing. I already plugged in a lamp on the outlet I used to plug in the laptop but the power outlet does work so I don't know it it's the charger that doesn't work or what could it be. Please help i really need my computer I'm afraid that it won't turn on again. I would appreciate if someone could help .. thanks

Has the acer aspire 5332 got a webcam?

You can ask the company if you can have one installed because I don't think they come with one. You can always buy a 20$ webcam on the side. Or pay the 80$ to have a webcam built into the laptop. Your choice.
Hope this helps ^^. Please don't forget to rate, Thanks

Acer Aspire 5050 won't boot at all

Yes, it's not the hard drive.

More than likely it's your motherboard.

There's not much you can do besides trying to boot the computer without the battery, and removing and reinstalling the memory.

Hopefully you'll get lucky!
