An awesome team of students from our education program made this wiki. It was originally released in If this is not the issue turn off the device then unplug the power adapter and remove the battery. Once the device is turned off hold down the power button for 20 seconds to discharge all electricity. Plug the power adapter back in and check the indicator, if the device shows that it is charging then it is an issue with the battery. See our guide on how to replace your battery.

Upgrading your Acer computer can give it new life and make it very fast without spending lots of money on a brand new computer. A lot of older model computers have a standard mechanical hard drive and 2GB - 4GB of memory. Memory is used for multi tasking and allows the computer to do more at once which means that with 4GB of memory you may only be able to have a few browser tabs open at once along with a few programs before it starts to freeze up and lag.
Upgrading the memory to 8GB - 16GB Depending on computer model can allow your computer to run more programs, open more browser tabs and improve overall performance. Not only will this better read speed allow you to copy files faster but it will give your computer a huge performance boost.
A good example of this is your computer starting up in under 30 seconds. Applications and software will also open almost instantly and waiting for computer games to load becomes a thing of the past. Another advantage of solid state drives is that they are more reliable than standard drives as there are no moving parts inside giving it a longer life and minimising chances of files being corrupted.
The one down side of solid state drives is that you will no longer be able make yourself a tea or coffee while the computer starts as it starts up so fast now. If you are sick of waiting for applications to start, your computer freezing and running slowly than you should certainly consider an upgrade for your Acer.
You will regret not doing it sooner after seeing the performance increase! There are multiple ways you can identify how many memory slots your Acer Computer has: 1. Physically looking. Using the memory scanner tool supplied on our website.
The instruction manual that came with the computer should also tell you. Use our website to find your model. We have ram slot info on every model page. Alternatively you can try these 2 things: You can find the model on the Acer Aspire by pressing the "Windows" key, typing "dxdiag" and then clicking the "dxdiag.
The model is listed in the System Model section of the System tab. Alternatively, press "Windows," type "msinfo32" and click the "msinfo Additional memory allows you to run more applications simultaneously without the computer slowing down. It also allows you to multi-task to a much greater degree as your applications, email, web browsing, etc.
However additional RAM does not solve all the issues of a "slow" computer. If you find that it takes Windows a long time to load or your spreadsheets are taking minutes before they are ready to use, then you should consider swapping out your old spinning HDD for an SSD.
SSDs will run up to 12 times faster then a HDD and will have Windows loading and ready to use within seconds instead of minutes. In a working environment, waiting minutes each time a new program loads or for your computer to be ready to use, is a time consuming and costly exercise. Added up, wait times increase to hours lost when totaled over the course of just a week.
None of us here have that kind of time to waste, do you?
