My sister has an acer laptop. she mostly runs it of the battery and went o charge it through the mains yesterday and the pc has totally shut down. When plugged into the mains no lights or power on the pc and she tried my mains lead and the same. What could the problem be?

Hi Fruit Bat. She did what you said and nothing. She says that the light on the box that the cable goes to flickers when plugged into the pc and stays on when she unplugs it from the pc?

Hi buteman, she tried those instructions but nothing happened.

Check the connection to the laptop is not loose / moves, could be the DC power plug is loose on the motherboard.

Sounds like something at Laptop Draging the Power down, needs a repair shop

Thank you all for your advice. My sister is going to take it to a repair shop.
