  • HALP - laptop died

    I was just browsing the net on my laptop, and it just died on me, as if I had just pulled out the battery and the charger (both still in). It won't boot at all, and the indicator light that normally comes on with the charger doesn't light.

    The battery didn't go flat, normally it will tell me if its going flat, so I'm thinking its a power supply issue?I really don't know.

    It's an acer aspire 5920 BTW.

    Over heat?

    What were you running in the background? What surface do you run it on? Can it vent?

    I know my HP will cut out randomly if it gets a bit warm...

      It was on my lap, and I was only running firefox. Didn'd seem to be very warm at all, and i was only using it for bout 5 minutes.

        Yeah that's not an overheat... typically half an hour on a bed or something running a graphically intense program will do it...

          So the blue light that lights up whenever you insert the charger isn't on? That's not a good sign.

          Try removing all power (batt + cable), then hold down power button for about 10 seconds.

          But if it's not getting any power at all, you could be in trouble. Take the base off and see if there is a fuse or any signs of something going pop.

            I've done that, I can't see anything amiss at all.

              All signs are pointing to the power supply/transformer inside the laptop. You may need a professional.

                  Find someone who has the same laptop and try their power cord. That will tell you if the magic smoke got out of the power brick, or the laptop. Guess which one you want it to be.

                      I'll ask my housemate if that's a known issue with that lappy, he works for Acer's contractors.

                        Anyone know how I can test the mobo?

                          Does your bro's battery fit in yours? Could be that the socket has detached itself from the mobo, not charging the batt and now it's completely flat? Used to be a common problem on all laptops with that common type of power plug.

                            Nah, I'm pretty sure that isnt it, because it was indicating that it was fully charged before it died.
