Having problems with your Acer Aspire One PC Notebook ?

New notebook w/new battery. Battery doesn't seem to charge even after machine is on for many hours.

\015 I bought this a couple of months ago, but haven't had the need to use it. Took it out today and had it on for about six hours, hoping to charge it. As soon as I took it off the power supply, it turned off. I cannot start it with the battery alone.\015\012Is this normal? Do I have to have it powered on for days and days for the battery to charge? The instructional booklet is silent on how long it needs in order to charge.\015

Answers :

Most laptops need 24 hours when their battery is first charged - but this is not normal it should last longer than that on batteries- i reccomend charging it for 24hrs minimum with it off then get back to me if that didnt fix the problem

Hope i could help

I have a friend with a Compaq Evo N60c laptop. He has asked me to see if i can get it working as there seems to be no life in it. It's plugged in but the battery has been fully discharged and even plugged in it takes NO power and is totally lifeless?? I have checked all the conections and all seems to be ok and there is power from the mains lead. (though not sure if there is enough power i'll have that checked today) Can anyone help move us on a little further with this or is this a common
