Having problems with your Acer Aspire One AOA150-1504 Netbook ?

The dc power plugin is not working. I have had the pink acer aspire one mini laptop since christmas 2008. I've never had trouble with it before. Two weeks ago I noticed that sometimes when I plugged in the power cord, the laptop did not recognize it was plugged in. The light would not come on showing it was on the main power supply and it would not charge the battery. It eventually would work when I retried plugging it in a few times, but now, it won't work at all.

Hi,
\015\012
\015\012Try taking the battery out and with the battery out put the mains lead in, now press the power button, if it comes on just hold the power button down until the unit powers off. Now put the battery back in with the mains connected and power it on again, it should now charge the battery, sometimes Acer machines lock up and this is how to reset them, if the battery doesn't charge then you need a new battery.

\015\012If the power didn't come on with battery out you will need to seek out an engineer as the mainboard may have gone faulty around the dc in socket.

If your power adapter is still putting out the correct voltage when it is plugged into the wall, then you can safely assume that the adapter connection on the motherboard has come loose.
It can be replaced, but it is sort of tricky. You are probably looking at buying a new motherboard.
