What are the tips to resolve AC adapter issues of Acer® Aspire® notebooks?
Regardless of how well-maintained the Acer® Aspire® notebook is, it may encounter some problems, one of which is to do with the AC adapter not functioning properly. It creates a lot of inconvenience, as without the AC adapter being functional, the notebook will not boot.
Here, we talk about the different AC adapter issues along with the tips to resolve them:
- AC adapter does not receive power
- Screen turning black
- Buzzing AC adapter
AC adapter does not receive power
The AC adapter unable to receive power can be one major reason for the system not turning on. As there is a frequent need of using the power cord, therefore there are instances when it leads to frayed power cord. It also leads to intermittent power supply to the system, because of which the notebooks does not get sufficient energy to boot the system and fails to respond to users commands.
Screen turning black
When the system does not receive sufficient amount of power, the system screen may go black, hence taking away the interface to work. The reason behind the screen going black is that the AC power cord, which is connected to the AC adapter, overheats and many a times melts the soldering joint, and thus the screen turns black. The other reason behind the blackout could be the surge protector or the power supply going bad. As there could be four different categories of power problems, like installation is improper, power cord is faulty, adapter is broken, or there is a damaged DC jack. Therefore, the power issues revolve around the four reasons and must be checked when the system blacks out.
The buzzing of AC adapter in Acer® Aspire® notebooks requires troubleshooting. To resolve it, the first step is to check for any damage to the AC adapter, following which the rubber coating and the cord knots must be checked. If there is any kind of damage, an electrical tape can be used as a temporary solution. However, the permanent solution will be to replace it. Plugging the AC adapter to a different power outlet may also help, as in many situations when multiple devices are connected to the same outlet, audio interferences are created. Ground looping is another major reason for the buzzing noise, and thus the surge protector can help in avoiding it. Connect to the Acer® Aspire® notebook with the help of a surge protector. A power conditioner can also be used to ease the current flow. Power conditioner helps in avoiding any kind of spikes or peaks in the current flow.
