Having problems with your Acer Aspire One PC Notebook ?

My Aspire one AOA-150-1636 is about 6 months old and I use it a lot. Today, although plugged into the charger and adapter, I got message that battery was at 6% and I should replace it. Apprently it was not charging and I can't get it to respond with the power adapter/charger or battery. What's up? Do I need a new battery? A new charger and adapter? Both?? Also, I can't seem to find an adpater/charger labelled specificallyf or this model. Any help out there...


Answers :

If you take out your battery, plug it in, then turn your laptop on it should still run. If it does run then your battery is bad. If it does not run then it is either your DC jack or charger.
