Flickering screen - Acer (laptop) 1690 series

\015 Hi,\015\012\015\012I'd like to address a problem that started just 2 months ago:\015\012\015\012\015\012Whenever I connect my laptop to AC power the screen just starts flickering away. It goes from AC mode to battery mode and back,... and then some more. It also seems it's not aware it's connected: I get the little outlet icon next to my clock when it's on AC mode - , but not the kind with the lightning bolt when it's out of power. This way it can take up to several dayst to fully charge the battery.\015\012Another problem I'd like to add: the battery depletes abnormally fast (< 25 mins. or so). This happens even when no other programs, aside from the background processes, are running. Even more curious is the fact that the battery manages to recharge in just under 30 mins. or less (???). By this I mean that the little icon mentioned earlier changes from 'outlet with lightning bolt' to 'just plain outlet'\015\012So what's wrong with my pc, and how can I fix it? (see specs below)\015\012\015\012Aspire 1690 (nearly 4 years since purchasing date)\015\012-------------------------------------------------------------------------\015\0121,7Ghz (Intel Celeron)\015\0121GB Ram\015\012Windows XP (Service Pack 2), Home Edition\015\012\015

Answers :

You have two problems and they are separate issues.
\015\012First your battery is nearly worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and as the battery ages the charge capacity will drop. When the battery is worn out, it may not charge at all or show it is 100% charged but when you remove the AC power the laptop will shut off because the battery is dead. A new battery is required to fix this problem.
\015\012
\015\012Second when you connect the AC adapter into the laptop's power socket, and the screen flickers and the charge LED also flicks, it means the power socket is faulty or the power socket has a dry solder joint connection to the motherboard. If you hold the power plug in a particular position you should notice the charge LED will stay on without flickering as well as the LCD screen.
\015\012This fault can be repaired, but it requires the laptop to be dismantled completely to access the power socket. I suggest you get a quote first.

I have an older Gateway solo and I'm having problems with the display. I was given two of them to put together to make a working one. On one there was a broken screen and on the other one the display flickered (probably a problem with a connection). I took them apart and put the flickering screen on the one with the broken screen. It would try to boot but nothing would show up on the screen and the cd drive wouldn't even work and neither would the keyboard. I then took a different approach and t
