Yes I have a ACER 5670 laptop and I was on it and all of a sudden it shut off. I looked down at the charger and the light was blinking real fast but when I unplugged it from my laptop the light stayed steady (like it always has). I bought a new charger, cord and all still got the same problem. There are no lights on the laptop power, hard drive, etc. Any suggestions would be great.

Thank you

I read this someplace about Acer and it is also a Gateway M Series "solution":

Perform a static discharge.

Unplug the machine, take out the battery, hold down the power button for 30-40 seconds then try powering up again as usual.


A few steps would appear to be missing, like put the battery back in...

yes I've tried just the batterie, nothing. yes I've tried no battery and just the charger, nothing. I haven't tried a static discharge. I'll try that and let you know. Thanks for the help.

its not going to help but since you tried the battery and nothing.. it can only mean that your motherboard is dead.

battery with no charger = nothing - could mean battery or motherboard issue.
no battery and only charger = nothing - means possible charger issue..but also motherboard but definitly battery is no longer the issue.

since you bought a new charger from your original post.. then it would seem that the only culprit left is the motherboard.

Static discharge didn't work? I would have done a back flip if it did.

At least you can say you tried it.

I will never trust what I read on the Internet again.

Sorry... :thumbsup:

In your OP you said the light was blinking real fast and was then steady.... I have never seen your HW, so which light was blinking real fast and what does it do with your new charger?
