Hi all,

I would appreciate any suggestions for my problem

I have a 4 month old Acer TravelMate laptop that I got when I started college last fall. While I was home on holiday break my computer's battery would not recharge when I had my ac plugged in. When I took the battery out of the computer and only have the ac cord powering my computer it did not turn on. Then I tried to see if the battery alone would power the computer and since it has not been charged the computer does not turn on. I wound up borrowing another ac cord to power the computer but it is too loose to replace the old one and it does not recharge the battery.

I looked at the ac jack and I noticed the fit is looser than normal with my own plug and I am wondering if this is affecting the performance of recharging the battery and also why m computer will not turn on. The computer has accidentally fallen when my little sister knocked it over when I came home from school and I think that this might have caused this.

Should I have this repaired or look into replacing my ac cord? Also which would be cheaper since I am on a college student's budget.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions

4 months old I would contact ACER and see if the warranty covers it (probably not). Notebooks are specailized and you may end up sending it to them anyways.

If you have a good, trusted computer repair shop you could order the part. This online shop has the part. Contact them to make sure they have your's. See if your local computer shop is willing to tackle it.

Warning!! This is a big job. Do not think because it is a replacable part just anyone can do it.


I DO NOT RECOMMEND YOU DO THIS YOURSELF!!!


Good luck
