Answers :

A common problem is for the power jack connections on the system board to go bad. They break loose from the main board because the power plug gets flexed and then the power doesn't get from the adapter to the board. No power light (or intermittent flickering) and no battery charging results.

What you need to do (or have done) is to resolder the power jack onto the board. This isn't difficult, but it involves getting the main board out to reach the solder side. In some cases the board can be damaged because of the bad connections and isn't repairable. Then the board needs to be replaced. But most often the soldering fixes the trouble.

Acer Aspire 3000 notebook: 1) monitor displays horizontal random lines. This can be fixed by clamping the bezel to the lid, at the position of the lid release catch, using a bull-dog (spring) clip. It works, but obviously isn't a permanent answer. New screen and/or inverter indicated? 2) computer only works from the battery - about 1 hour's use from full charge.
