Acer Aspire 4520 power problem

Hi I have one Acer Aspire 4520 notebook. I got a problem lately and hope some one can help me solve it or let me know where I should start.

When my notebook is off and power cable is connected and pluged in, I can see the battery is charged and the light of battery is on. However when I turn on the notebook, the battery light goes off and the notebook runs from battery power, not the power cable. When I pull off the battery and turn on the notebook on power cable, it doesn't turn on. I asked my computer friends and they don't know what to do about it. Can any one help me?

  1. It's most likely something to do with the AC adapter or the internal power jack. If it is the AC adapter, you can try and get another one for cheap to see if that fixes the issue. If it is the jack itself, you may need a new one.
