Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook ?

My acer aspire 5315 doesnt charge properly.

\015 I have an acer aspire 5315 laptop, and it plays up alot, but the most annoying recent problem is that when i plug my charger into the socket at the back of my laptop, alot of the time it doesnt charge. The battery light on the laptop lights up when the charger is inserted into the socket and is charging, but alot of the time when i insert the charger, it flickers on or off.Im starting too wonder if its the socket on my laptop itself, or the charger thats faulty? The charger does wobble about in the socket abit, if i position it right it will charge, but it can slip and move which causes it too stop charging, so when im usinng the laptop it will turn off alot because it has ran out of charge even thought the charger is plugged in, and i havent noticed that it has slipped in the socket.im really confused. and this is becoming a large problem.\015

Answers :

I'm sorry to say that your initial fears are correct and the pin that the adapter connects to in the laptop is loose. This is a common problem with laptop's and can be easily dealt with.
Now I'm not going to tell you to open the laptop up and de-solder the adapter (unless you want me to).
Because this is a fiddly job and you have to order the correct adapter i recommend you take it to a reputable repair store and have them replace the adapter for you, don't let them tell you that you need a new motherboard as this is not the case at all, adapters can and do get regularly get fixed and is not that expensive.

Good luck.
