Acer Ferrari power problem.

\015 Hi,\015\012\015\012I have an Acer Ferrari 3000.\015\012The last time I had problems with the AC adapter (going down) It appears that giving some hits on it make it functioning again.\015\012\015\012Untill last week when some smoke was coming out of the adapter. The notebook went down at the same moment.\015\012\015\012Finally I have received a new adapter, but I can't power on my notebook.\015\012\015\012What might be the cause for this problem?\015

Answers :

What appears to be the problem on this system is power related.\015\012when the power adapter was being hit to temporarily come on it reflects a loose connection or component in the power adapter which eventually was let loose and cause a shot circuit which explains the smoke.\015\012\015\012This is likely to cause a circuit problem in the laptop.\015\012Take the battery out and try to power it again?
