Acer Aspire 5741 power help

  Thulana-1623839 12:19 06 Oct 2010

I,m in sri lanka. I purchased an Acer aspire 5741 laptop from Acer dealer in Sri lanka. Suddenly before 2 weeks it stopped working and i couldnt switch on. Even i plug in to charger, the bulb doesn't indicate that laptop get power. When i send it to service center they said BIOS has crashed and they will update BIOS and give it to me. After 3 days they give it. But i noticed that they have opened the back cover ( BIOS are updating normally via internet as i knew ) Then it works fine and but i felt it slows down the laptop. From yesterday again laptop doesn't charge properly. Yesterday charging stopped from 90% and it never goes back past 90% . Today it becomes 88% and from 88 it will never go to higher. Simply laptop doesnt get full charged.

Im afraid that the service people has changed my motherboard. Is that a common thing for acer laptops. Or does it a problem of battery.Or mother board ? I think service people has hide the problem from me. Please help me guys :)

Your laptop has a charging problem. There are a number of reasons including faulty charger, bad battery, bad connection, poor power management. Changing the motherboard in a laptop is fairly major.

Can you reject it and ask for a replacement?

Yeah im going to ask for a full replacement since its only 2 months
Now the charging indicator stopped at 87% and didnt go up.In Morning it was 88%. This acer laptop is a piece of shit

My advice on your problem is also to complain strongly to Acer Supervisor/Manager. Push for replacement.
Also who are responsible for Sri Lanka?
Europe/Africa/elswhere. Complain to Head Office responsible if you cannot get solution.

I cannot help more. There are many possible problems can cause the same symptoms.

General info on batteries. But yours is only 2 months old.
Just keep for future reference.

Good Luck.

Thanks brother
Im going to force them for a replacement. Because i cannot use this bullshit product for so long since its 2 months. Metropoliton computers are the authorized dealer for Sri Lanka. I got this from them.

I also dont think this is a issue of battery. I think they have changed the Mother board and now the problems happened cz of incompatible mother board

Thanks all..

Its only 2 months old, I have not got a clue on the laws in Sri lanka but can you not take it back? as it is not fit for purpose.
