We have an Aspire One netbook, with power issues. Basically, the battery refuses to charge, and the unit doesn't power.

I know that there is a common battery fault, however I have tried the fixes available from google searches, with no luck.

I can't even get into the diagnostic mode (holding Fn and Esc with Power from what I remember).

I suspect that it is more likely that the power supply or battery need changing, is there an easy way to determine which? The power supply has a light on the box, and when plugged in the netbook's power light briefly flickers, but that is as far as it gets.

Before this problem, the system was suffering from random shutdowns, although we were able to reboot it after some time. This time, it has been out of action for approx 2 months with no luck. It is a Linux, not XP, version.

Any help greatly appreciated!

hi ,you could check your power plug or have it checked ,with a multi meter to see if its putting out power .if you don't have a meter take it to a local electronics repair shop to have it checked

My answers are my opinion only,usually
