i recently purchased an acer aspire 3662wlmi with prior knowledge that the laptop had a battery issue.
The laptop won't operate with the battery only, ac power is needed; the battery charge orange led stays lit for a few mins and begins to blink and does so continuously. When restarting from windows desktop, it shuts down doesn't restart; then the power button needs pressing about five times in order to power up. I have tried using another battery and power supply but the same symptoms occur.
From what i can tell all power options are at default and don't think there is a standby , hibernate conflict. Any ideas as to what could be the prob would be much appreciated. Many thanks!
