Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5720-6661 Notebook PC ?

I can not charge battery on laptop or run on ac. Battery works on whats left in power just ac issue. Power is getting through adapter. It's for Acer aspire 5720z


Answers :

How are you sure that the power is getting through? Is the AC light on the computer on steady? Does it blink if you bump the connector?

So often the jack of the adapter or within the machine fails. Often if the jack feels loose on the computer, it is bad.

However, if none of that applies, I would go into the control panel and look at all the power settings to see if anything is unreasonable. Similarly, I'd look at the BIOS settings. (You may have to hit a particular key, like F10, when the machine boots --- there should be information on the screen, in the manual or at the Acer site.)

If that doesn't turn up anything, I would check the BIOS version and carefully follow the instructions to load a newer version if one is available or reload the previous version. Why? I don't exactly know, but when I had a Sony VAIO machine witih similar symptoms tech support suggested this and it did work.
