The battery and power lights on my Acer are flashing!

Hello!  My Acer Aspire One laptop's battery and power lights keep flashing when I insert my charger.  It will charge for about a minute, then begin flashing... which either does not charge at all, or charges slowly.  I am assuming it is a battery issue, since I just bought a new charger a couple of weeks ago, which was working fine until today!  I bought it from a friend, so I lack the proper manual or instructions on how to identify and resolve the issue.  I suppose I could ask Google, but I'd rather get my info from a person ;)

Thank you so much!!

It looks like power lights keeps flashing when you connect the charger.



This issue normally occurs due to damaged battery, you may check these steps.



a. Plug the computer to another power socket and check

b. Replace the battery

c. Power or charger board within the laptop is bad. It is recommended that the laptop be serviced or repaired.


You may also take out the battery and remove all the external devices connected to the laptop. Keep the computer idle for 5-10 minutes and re-insert all the hardwares.
