Acer Aspire V5-573G not powering on or charging

Q: Acer Aspire V5-573G not powering on or charging

Hi, An hour ago, my computer randomly shut down while I was using it. At that time, it was connected to the AC adapter and I had just plugged in a USB Hub that also had an external power source.When it shut down, I noted that the indicators for power and charge were both switched off, in spite of the AC adapter being powered on. Moreover, I wasn't able to boot the laptop, despite the battery being at 100%. I tried unplugging the AC adapter and waiting for some time for any stray charges to dissipate, and also held the power button for 30 seconds while the AC adapter was unplugged. I even tried a spare AC adapter to no avail, and found that my adapter was able to charge another Acer laptop.I tried searching for a "Reset" button on the body of the laptop, given that this model has a non-removable battery. However, I wasn't able to find one.If this laptop had a removable battery, I would have been able to fix it by now. However, I don't want to remove the back plate of my laptop and risk losing my warranty.It would be much appreciated if someone knew how to fix this without touching the battery, through the reset button or an alternate mechanism.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Never mind, I found the reset button. It's in the middle of the back plate, for anyone who has the same problem.

Hi all, I have my laptop for about 2 years now and use it daily for my work. I often put it to sleep instead of shutting it down since I take it with me all the time and use it at several places. 2 days ago after putting it to sleep and going to a different place I tried turning it on again. After pressing the powerbutton is started and I saw the acer logo on the screen but after a second the laptop just shutted down. The same thing happened a few times after each other. Also note, I sometimes had to press the power button 2 or 3 times before something would happen.Then the computer stayed on for a longer while but after 5-10 minutes just started shutting down again. When this happens it first shows the "shutting down" signal and then abruptly turns off. As if it loses power.After that I got it to turn on and it worked without problems for the rest of the day, and yesterday as well. (Even though I didn't do anything). Today the same problem occured again. Not starting, starting for a few seconds and shutting down again, then after 5 minutes, then after 10. Now it's been running for about 20 minutes. I already tried the battery reset. I also opened up the laptop and cleaned out the fans but that didn't help. Two times it also automatically went into recovery mode but when I tried the repair problems options, it started to shut down again. TLDR: My computer randomly shuts down and have no clue what is going on.

Hello.

I just bought Acer Aspire V5-573G laptop

I can access the internet with wifi, no problem, but I can't access with cable.
I upgraded to SSD today so it has been reinstalled and still doesnt work.
It seems to notice the cable but it shows a "!" and says Limited.
I'm running on Windows 8.1 64bit
I really want to try everything before sending it to repairs.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

A:LAN doesn't work on Acer Aspire V5 573G

check the LAN plug there are two small LED's both lit when LAN cable plugged in..

Also verify that the driver you installed from OEM is for windows 8.1 x64

another option is to go into device manager and remove the driver and see if MS Update has a driver for it

Hello, I have Acer Aspire V5-573G. Before all problems begin I used Legacy BIOS mode with Windows 10 Pro 64bit OS. Have latest BIOS v2.30. So recently I decide to switch from Legacy BIOS to UEFI mode and reinstalled Windows 10 Pro 64bit with UEFI mode enabled with GPT partition style. Everything went good with installation. Now I face following issues with UEFI and Windows 10 witch I didn't have in Legacy BIOS mode:when laptop goes to sleep and is not touched for a while, I'm unable to wake up laptop. Pressing any key on keyboard or touching touchpad doesn't wake up it either. Only way is to press Power button to completely shutdown it and then turn it on again. I'm not sure if it's something to do with Windows settings to fix this.Restarting Windows sometimes shutdown laptop. This is really strange... Windows shows it's restarting, screen goes black and doesn't boot anymore, instead it shutdown laptop.??And when I'm shutting down system, it doesn't fully turn it off. Often the blue light still flashes, CPU and GPU fans are still working and again to fully shutdown system I have to press Power button.Are these problems somehow related to UEFI, because I had no such problems with Legacy mode and Windows 10. This starts to annoy me when laptop doesn't fully shuts down. Any help on this? Thank you!

Hello, Well I see that some of these problems are described by others as well on windows 10 and different notebooks.A few solutions have been suggested but I am not sure if these will help you in any way. First, one of the options was to disable fast startup and try to see if it solves your problem.(mainly the shutdown issue)Go in power options, and select from left "Chose what the power buttons do". Here click on "change settings that are curently unavailable" and uncheck fast startup, and see if it will solve the problem. Another idea was to disable hibernate for windows. You can do it in the same way as described above but uncheck hibernate or run the this command in an elevated command prompt(run cmd as administrator) powercfg /h off.The last suggestion was to turn on hybrid sleep on your current power plan. Go to power options, and for your current power plan click "change plan settings". Here click on "change advanced power settings" and look for sleep in the new window. Open the node and at "allow hybrid sleep" select ON. I am not sure if any of these will solve the issue but you can give a try.

I got this laptop in 2014 and it gave me hell at the beginning, then it worked, then during the switch to w10, it gave me more hell. Fast forward to 2016, I have a proper desktop because frankly I could not rely on the laptop anymore, oddly enough it's behaved without a hitch for a while now. Anyway, I opened it up and switched out the HDD (1TB WD slim) for an SSD, and I've been thinking of switching out the 4GB ram stick for an 8GB one and maybe the WNA (AR5BWB222) for an Intel one (Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 HMC Rev.2). My question is the following, can I replace the RAM for any PC12800/1600 MHz SO-DIMM DDR3L CL11 1,35v stick? or does it have to be the Acer approved ones? (which seem to be substantially more expensive).  Is there a list of compatible hardware for the laptop? I wanna give it new life, if it's possible. Anyway, thanks in advance!

You have to bridge the two connections. You are really better off getting a Hotspot than using your phone as the router. Most phones that can be used as a Hotspot, allow up to five devices to connect to it.

I've been having some weird visual issues while playing games lately. I have an intel driver and an nvidia driver, and if I disable one or the other, the issues seem to stop, but the framerate becomes so low as to be unplayable. The drivers in question are an Intel(R) HD Graphics 5500 and an NVIDIA GeForce 940M. Attached here is one of the more egregious cases. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling drivers, disabling one or the other, updating, and nothing seems to work. The only thing I feel like haven't tried that could work so far is a BIOS upgrade/downgrade, and I'd like to save that for a last resort, if possible.

Hi guys,

I've got my uncle's Acer Aspire 5536 that I am having some trouble with. He said that the laptop just decided not to work.

When I press the power button absolutely nothing happens.
When I plug my charger in, the power button lights up blue and so does the battery light (Orange when was charging, now blue).

There is still nothing happening when I press the power button though.

I've tried taking the battery and charger out and holding the power button for a few minutes then connect the charger, to no avail!

I popped the casing above the keyboard off to make sure that the power button wasn't just stuck. All seems fine.

hey guys, i am really desperate right now and i need some quick help.

a few days ago i ordered a laptop which arrived on friday and then i started to set it up with windows 10 and some software.

i immediately realized that the laptop is not charging.

in the windows taskbar, when i click on the battery logo, it says "0%, not charging"

i know that there is some threshold that the laptop only starts to charge when it's below a set value, normalle ~50%.

but the laptop is not charging at all, it's stuck at 0% and when i plug out the charging cable it turns off.

i also checked the battery with a program to see if it's broken, but the wear value is only at 2%, so that should be fine.

any help is appreciated!

That doesn't work anymore.It just stops charging after 30 seconds of me plugging the charger in. I ordered a new battery after reading somewhere that it is a battery related issue. New battery and old battery show the same results.  What could be causing the problem here? I did a fresh install of Win7, deleted the battery drivers from Device Manager, rebooted so they'd re-install.

I have an acer aspire 5315 that won't charge, I had problems with the charging adapter before so I thought that was the problem and replaced it, the replacement worked for a while but I had to rotate the connector in the place it went in the laptop until a connection was found, and now I can't even do that, my laptop just won't charge and I can't even turn it on now because the battery is drained.

HELP PLEASE! I'm broke and urgently need my laptop back to work.

PS-The battery itself is fine.
As for the cable, like I said I have a new one and the only way for it to charge is by bending it into a certain direction untill a charging connection is found but now not even that works.
And I live in Portugal (Europe) not the USA, so please don't suggest stores there to fix it as people have before ^^'

I got back an Acer Aspire from a customer that is having charging issues. There are times the it will charges, others when it will not. The DC plugin seems to be a bit odd with it, hard to plug in unless you plug it in at just the right angle. So I broke into the case thinking that the connection had broken off from the mobo. Turns out this computer like some of the newer laptops don't have their DC jacks connected directly to the Mobo. So there goes my idea. Only thing i can come up with is buying a replacement on ebay for $6.00 and trying that.

Just because I wanted to check all my bases I tested the DC jack power cable at the distal end from the plug (the plug that connects to the mobo), it tested at almost 20v, on my analog millimeter at 19v i'm just going to assume its right, couldn't test the amps though... I found that odd. I couldn't test the power supply cable, the plug it to small for my millimeter to get inside of it for a good reading.

Anyone had this problem? Any ideas? ThinkI'm on the right track with replacing the DC plug?

I just bought a new battery for my Acer aspire 5570 from ebay. Its only charges for 20 minutes and windows power management detects it as a Unknown battery, and my Acer power management software says the battery is at 0% and does not go into sleep mode anymore.

Is this a battery problem or a software problem ... my old acer battery is at 50% capacity in about a year now and i really hope this problem is solvable or ill be permanently tethered to a outlet ....

HALP PLEASE

OK ive posted about this a couple times but that was when i didnt have a clear picture of the problem. Last week my computer was fine, i use it for gaming so i have it plugged in while playing and disconnected while not using it, sometimes i just need to use the browser so i dont plug  it in. Just a couple days ago i noticed my computer making beeping sounds whenever i started playing a game, didnt think of it as much of a problem. A couple days after i notice its doing it more often while i play, keyboard backlight keeps going on and off and the screen dimiming and getting bright following the same pattern as the beeping. I start doing some research and nothing, i unplug all devices and still. I unplug the charging cable and it does the beeping and it ends there. Now i know the beeping has to do with the charging turning on and off for some reason. The next day i am just browsing and the beeping starts happening when im just using chrome. This became a problem since my laptop was bassically not charging while im using it, so i decided to check if it charges while off or in sleep mode. Which it does, this makes me think the computer decides to stop charging and charge whenever the hell it wants because of some problems while anything is running while the computer is on. Since my computer is out of warranty i tried to get assistance from AnswersByAcer, the guy helping me decides to ask for remote connection which i let him, and he calls me to assist me...

Hello......
My Nephews laptops battery ran low and required charging. When the charger is plugged into the laptop the orange 'charging' light illuminates for approximately 6 seconds then, goes out for a further 6. This repeats continuously whilst the battery remains flat and the machine will not power up.
I have checked the output from the charger which is constant although I have no means, at present , of ascertaining the actual output values.
If there is anyone with any hints or clues I should be most grateful' Thanks.

So the laptop will not turn on at all? Does it act the same if you remove the battery? If not the the adapter may be faulty, the DC jack in the laptop may have broken, or there's a motherboard failure in the laptop.

Testing with a known good and compatible power adapter would be the next step.

How old is the laptop, is it still under warranty?

Good Day! For 2 days now, I'm having a problem when it comes to charging my laptop. I'm not sure if the problem is the battery or the ac adaptor, itself. But I think, it's the ac adaptor. Because I have to disconnect and connect again the socket(you can take it off) in my ac adaptor for a couple of times before it start charging continously. I get the same problem everytime I charged my laptop and there is an orange blinking happening when you know it's not yet charging. So I might be correct that the problem is my ac adaptor? How much do you think is the cost of a new ac adaptor?  Thanks!

I don't how can I describe this problem detailed enough, But my acer aspire 4935G has been turning off randomly. this laptop has been with me for about 5years now and I suspect that because of the 'age', problems will occur.
I still hope that you guys can help me repair this on my own.

Windows vista, core2duo, 3gb RAM, 512mb video

Here are the problems (mainly about shutting off randomly)

-I will be using my laptop for the whole night and while using, with no heavy applications running, it will just shut off.

-the processor fan is running. (I shared this info because I suspect that its due to overheating.) but will still shut off.

-I already dismantled my laptop just to clean the fan. I removed the dirt. trust me, I really cleaned the fan and where the air is coming out. clean. still shutting off randomly.

-I tried putting a desktop fan under the laptop, not just a usb laptop cooler, but really an electric fan to remove overheating, But still shuts off.

-now here's the weird part, I play NBA 2k13, which we know is a very heavy game in terms of processing and video, and RAM, etc,. If I play NBA 2k13, it doesnt shut off! Ever! but if I do an alt+tab, to go to my desktop, after a few mins, it will shut off. weird, thinking that shutting off will mostly occur while playing games. But no, it doesnt shut off while playing NBA 2k13. (this is the only PC game I play)

-if I go to ctrl panel>power options> "Acer ePower Management", an... Read more
