Acer 5100 laptop doesn't work on ac or charger battery

\015 I have a Acer 5100 laptop that will not work on ac power nor charge the battery. The lights to show any power at all do not even come one. Not even blink. If you put in a charged battery though it will work fine till the battery is dead, but then nothing again. You will have to charge to battery in another laptop for it to work. I have already tested the power supply and the voltages are correct. With the power supply in the pins on the ac port inside read 18.8v. There are no cracks or broken solder on the av port either. I'm pretty stumped at this point. \015

Answers :

Motherboard is bad and will have to be replaced unless of course the AC Jack on the back of the laptop is loose. That would cause the ac adapter not to charge and then you would have to take the motherboard out and put solder on each leg on the bottom of the ac jack to make sure it stays in place then the ac adapter can charge the battery properly.

Even going thru the solder method the motherboard could still be bad and have nothing to do with the ac jack.

I have and acer laptop and when you take the charger off the lights visibly go dim on the screen and the wireless connection to broadband is lost!! weird i know, ive replaced the charger which now charges properly but the moment you disconnect the power lead the same happens...help!!!

Acer Aspire 3000 notebook: 1) monitor displays horizontal random lines. This can be fixed by clamping the bezel to the lid, at the position of the lid release catch, using a bull-dog (spring) clip.
