Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5315 15.4-inch Notebook PC ?

My laptop won't charge when i put the plug on, the lights just flash orange

Answers :

The socket on the back of your laptop where you plug in the power cord becomes loose after a while, especially when you continously plug it in and pull it out a few hundred times.....what happens is the solder connections break open and sometimes because the solder gets loose , the plug itself moves which breaks the copper lines as well....solution is to repair the broken copper lines if they are broken and also resolder the pins from the plug back to the copper pads on the board.....if it is severly torn apart...you can still use the same plug but you'll have to use jumper wires to re-attach the plug......sometimes the plug itself goes bad...that case , you'll need a new plug.....before any of this repair though...make sure that your adapter is ok and the wire and plug at the end of your adapter is good....just measure the power coming out of the plug with a meter(set your meter for DC and measure the power at the plug) anything between 9 to 16 volts DC is fine.....if there's power there, then your adapter is good....then your problem would be what I described above...good luck
