Hey guys,

I have a Aspire 1640 and just recently it wouldn't charge at all, I have tried with 3 different chargers (all the same V so I know I haven't cooked anything).

When I plug in the charger and try to power up I get 8 flashing yellow lights and then nothing.

Thanks,

Wayne.

Try this first:

1. Remove the battery and AC cord. Remove the bottom cover/covers of your laptop and make sure the cooling path is free of fluff and dust. Check the heat sink on the CPU is not loose, if so tighten the screws back down that hold it on.
2. Remove and reseat your RAM modules.
3. Replace your covers.
4. Hold down your power button for 1 minute (Battery and AC still disconnected).
5. Replace your AC power (not battery) and turn on.

This is called a hard reset. If it works COOL, then replace your battery. If not then we will try something else. Good luck.
