Having problems with your Acer Aspire 4720 Notebook ?

The little orange light that comes on when the computer is charging just flashes and computer wont trun on what does this mean?


Answers :

The orange flashing light means that your battery needs to be charged.
1) If you haven't already, plug in the power adapter.
2) If the power adapter is plugged in and the problem still exists, you most likely need a new power adapter. Before purchasing a new adapter, try plugging it into a few different outlets to make sure that the problem isn't in your outlet or power strip.

Google "Aspire 4270 a/c adapter" and there are a number of links to sites where you can purchase a new adapter.

Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.
Make sure the power cord is securly connected to the computer and that it plugged in. Are you sure the battery isn't emty?

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 that won't start. The battery light would flash orange 4 times then blue once, and then start over with the same sequence. Pulled the power board and fixed the solder joints on the power board socket, and it now charges the battery, but when I push the power button, no lights come on. The battery light flashes blue untill I push the power button, then that quits flashing. Pulled the harddrive, ram, dvd and still won't start. Also, removed the cpu and reinserted. Still
