Try to clean the socket on the computer, when the socket become rusted/slack it may become warm. use sandpaper to remove the rust then use contact cleaner spray. don't forget to remove the battery pack when you clean the socket. or... There might be a problem with the battery pack. Try using a replacement battery pack of the same type. hope this help..

Hi I have a Acer Aspire 776z labtop, and the computer shut off and will not turn on it was runnig perfectly. please HELP!! Thank You


Is with ac or battery power. In any case, remove your battery and plug in your ac adapter. If it turns on then it's your battery. If it doesn't if is either your ac adapter, dc jack, or something more serious. Let me know. [email protected]

Ferrari 4000 laptop a/c adaptor will not charge laptop,adaptor ok


Hi

Thank you for your query it sounds like you have multiple hardware issues

1) you mention that the ac adapter does not charge, then you say ac adapter ok. Please clarify if the adapter is faulty or the battery

2) As for the line in your screen, your LCD is faulty and will need to be replaced

I would recommend that you book the laptop into a reputable PC shop for further investigation/repair

If this has been useful please leave postive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank You Again

Acer Ferrari 4000. The computer won't charge the battery. We have a new charger and a new battery both of which have been checked. It was purchased 2 years ago.


based on your information, with new ac adapter and new battery the notebook will still not charge your battery this is a motherboard problem. replace motherboard

Acer ferrari dead


no, Laptop Computers do not have fuses.

How are you sure the AC adapter is working? Do you have a power tester...if you don't I suggest sticking your tongue into the power tip, if it shocks you, it means it working.

Also try taking the Battery out, sometimes a bad battery will prevent it from powering on.

Lastly check to make sure you didn't break the DC jack tip (the part of the laptop you plug the adapter too) this is probably one of the most commonly broken parts on a laptop.

Acer Ferrari power problem.


what appears to be the problem on this system is power related. when the power adapter was being hit to temporarily come on it reflects a loose connection or component in the power adapter which eventually was let loose and cause a shot circuit which explains the smoke. This is likely to cause a circuit problem in the laptop. Take the battery out and try to power it again?
