Acer with Power on indicator blinking.Why?

By flame06 ·
I have a small portable acer laptop which doesn't power on. When i plug it to the source, the power on indicator begins to blink; i have unstalled and ininstalled the battery but no changes. Right now i want to loose it and check the power on botton perhaps it is hardware but i don't want to do that until i'm certain it's necessary.
Please what could the possible problem be and what is the most likely solution?

I've tried pluging it with the battery out; in this case there's the power or battery indicator doesn't even come up;it's as though the laptop doesnt know that it's plugged.
I couldn't hold down for any length of sec cos i realized that the power botton is faulty, as though broken some how inside. I don't feel the click that's normally felt when pressing a on botton. Could this actually be it?

This may be a bad AC adapter

Hi

sounds like the AC adapter (or possible the port on the laptop you plug it into is bad (not sure if its the actual power button though)

lets try this, can you obtain another (known good) Ac adapter for the same model laptop? and try it on this laptop in the same way (no battery).
OR have the battery fully charged and see if it power up the system, this will prove the system is good and its something with the ac adapter.

Hi,

you should ensure it has the same output voltage, , amps (and watts) as well as polarity, If its the wrong type you can Permanently damage the motherboard.
