Son ran battery to zero after he broke power cord, now won't boot

\015 I got a new power cord after the computer sat for 10 days after son ran battery down to zero. Now that I got a new cord, I can turn it on, get green light but screen stays dark, and no other lights, caps lock nothing works.\015

Answers :

Easyest way: drop out the battery or buy a new battery.

I've seen this many times before. Try this:

Remove the power cord and battery from the aspire one. plug in the power cord with no battery attached and power up the laptop. Once the laptop boots up, reattach the battery and let it charge for a couple of hours before running it on battery again.. It's likely that the battery is so drained, that when you try to power on the laptop it is putting too much draw on the power circuit. If the laptop shuts down when the battery is plugged in, or if it won't run on battery after recharging, then contact acer for a new battery. If you're still in warranty it will be no cost to you.

Hope this helps!
