    I have tried that and it doesn't work. There is no power whatsoever.... when I have the battery on and the power cord pluged in the light comes on saying that the battery is charging though. It's weird. After about 2 weeks it just starts working again. i called acer and they said that it went into hybernation and to take the battery off and hold the power button for 30 sec and put it back on but it didn't work either.

    I had the same problem. My notebook was dead for two days, except the battery light would show if the battery was charging or fully charged. (Amber or Green). And, no, my notebook would not power on with the battery removed and only AC connected.

    I tried several options to no avail .. removing the drive / memory, swapping the memory DIMMS ...

    I wasn't certain, but I doubted the motherboard had any failed components. Ultimately I tried the suggestion... holding the power button down for 30 seconds, both with the battery out and NO AC power (unplugged), and the battery removed with AC power.

    When I inserted the battery back I noticed it didn't align 100% on both sides, so I gave it an extra thrust and made sure the two lock tabs for the battery were in the locked position. I don't know if it was the extra thrust with the battery, or the 30 second trick, but it powered on the next try!

    I suspect the latter. 30 seconds is a LONG time. I have often heard 4 and had tried that many times unsuccessfully. Give it an extra try and make sure you check with a watch. Try both with the AC on and off, as perhaps something needs to be discharged!

Hey, its kinda hard to tell exactly without seeing the laptop, but if you could try this, its a common problem with alot of laptop batterys.
remove the battery from the laptop, usually a switch on the bottom of laptop to remove the battery.
and try running the laptop off the mains without the battery in,
alot of the time that can fix the problem if its a faulty battery.
let me know how you get on,

Unplug the computer, hold the power button down until the laptop shuts down, then remove the battery. Plug in the charger, and try powering up. If all is okay, shut it back down, unplug it, and reinstall the battery. Then, plug it in and let it fully charge. Restart it, plugged in and with the battery installed. Good luck.

My emachine isn't starting up after hybernation, unless i press the power button and reboot. Why is this?

Hi there,
When your system goes to hybernation it creates a file on the root drive called hyberfil.sys in most instances this file gets corrupted and is causing the computer not to wake up from hybernation.
You would have to try and delete this file so that it will re enable the normal hybernation wake of your computer, here's how to do it:
Just have to reverse the process to re-enable hybernation.
My recommendation would be to just disable Hybernation and just let the computer go to sleep if you're going to leave it idle.
Hope this helps!

My acer aspire one pav70 went into hibernating mode . how do i get it out of hibernation

It could have gone into hybernation for more than one reason.
Either it has been programmed to or the battery is low. Either way pressing the power button momentarily will get it out, if the power supply is plugged in or the battery is charged.
To remove the hybernation option, right hand mouse click on the battery icone on the desktop and change you power settings.
Hope that helps.

My acer aspire 5050 dosent start up after you shut it down and boot it up? Help me!!!

Unplug the power supply, remove the battery then press the power button 10x or more holding each press for about 10secs. Insert the battery, plug the power supply and turn it on. If it doesn't, repeat the steps. This should remove the static electricity stuck in the mainboard.

If it turns-on, set your laptop to hybernate when you close the lid so you don't need to shutdown it anymore. If it runs out of power while in hybernation, it should start again.

Gone into hibernation - can I retrieve

When your laptop goes into hybernation, all files are saved as they were. As soon as you re-start your computer, it will open all files and programs as they were before hybernation started, so YES, you can retrieve everything as it was before.
be sure the computer ios plugged into a charger, to be sure the batteries are charged.

Please, let me know how it goes.

After hybernation, my acer aspire one refuse to wake up. I do everyting, but nothing happened, the screen stay black and i can t access the set up.

It probably the problem of drivers. Bad drivers usually prevent your computer from waking up or sleep down. Feel free to visit digitalsupporttech for getting help.

Screen wont come on

no video on the screen. Reseat the memory one stick at a time in each slot one at a time and try turning on the laptop after each stick reinsertion to see if you get video. If not then the motherboard is bad.

Make sure you have it plugged into the AC adapter and then hold the power button down for 5 seconds. This will force the computer off.

After a few seconds press the power button again and you'll be set
