I have replaced the batter and a c adapter. Battery still will not charge.
I have an Acer Aspire Notebook 3680 and recently started having problems with it not being able to hold a charge. When I plug in the laptop to an outlet it will reads " plugged in, not charging". I was told by a computer expert that it is the motherboard. I've only had the laptop for 1 year, and of course it would have problems one week after the warranty expired.

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.
This problem is usually caused by either a worn out battery (if you've had it for quite a while) or a faulty adapter/power cord. If you know anyone who has a similar Acer Aspire One Netbook, you could try using their battery and/or power cord to narrow down the issue. You can also buy laptop/netbook batteries relatively cheap on eBay and even if the batter ends up not being the issue, you will have a spare battery to take with you or for down the road when your current battery wears out.
Hi there, please perform power drain first. Take out the battery and unplug the power adapter. Press and hold the power button for 30secs. Put the battery back in, plug in the power adapater then turn on the computer. If same issue will occur then you need to replace your battery.
How old is your battery? When you use your laptop, do you run it on just the battery or do you use your a/c adapter and battery? If you're going to use your laptop for an extended period of time, it's recommended to remove the battery and run off of a/c power alone. This helps to extend the life of your battery. Over time, using both a/c and battery will cause your battery to charge/discharge, which dramatically shortens the life of the battery.
You may simply have a dead battery.
Another alternative is that you have a bad power unit, which is what the a/c adapter plugs into on your laptop. My guess is that you most likely have a dead battery.
