AC input socket on Acer is broken...

Your laptop is only 3 weeks old. you will need to contact Acer for a repair under warranty.

This form of damage usually requires a new motherboard since repairing / rebuilding the connector component is usually too time consuming.

Left-click on 'Start' > Right-click on 'My Computer' > Left-click on 'Properties'...the 'General' tab will have 'Manufactured and supported by' information.

Use these details to contact the Acer support unit in your area.

You will be given a 'repair number' and a courier company to contact. Give this number to the courier company. Your laptop will be collected by the courier, repaired and returned by courier. Repair time is usually 1 -2 weeks.

The main cause for this particular failure is usually if the laptop has fallen or suffered some form of trauma while the AC plug is inserted.

Good luck!

You will also need to save all your data as well

Because the first thing that will be done is the OS installed on the HDD will be blown away and the company who is responsible for the repairs will blow away all your data.

I've only ever seen these sockets broken when the NB has suffered some kind of trauma as well but I don't do much work with off the shelf systems so maybe Acer has a Design Fault with this model either way the company who repairs it will know what they are doing and how to proceed from here.

Actually - that's not necessarily true...

I had occasion to return my Acer under warranty and had quite a little 'chat' with the Tech at the other end of the phone, a 30 minute 'chat' - he must've been havin' a bad day!

He told me that it is Acer's policy that the customer can remove their harddrive before returning a NB under warranty.

If you can find it, that is!
