What else could be wrong with my Aspire 1?

Have an Aspire 1 that I still use almost on a daily basis (some old programs on it that don’t do well with Windows 10 (on another computer). Anyhow, it suddenly died on me, red light for the battery charge constant. Bought new battery and left it on charger and it charged good (green light again). Now, the computer turns on and basically nothing other than a green light for the power switch. Fan seems to run but that is about it. Son (techie) though it was the motherboard battery. After using your excellent instructions, took it apart and the battery is good. Thinking it might be loose wiring someplace, putting it back together. Would like to know if there is something else (dumb) that could be wrong before I buy another and switch hard drives….??? Thank you, great instructions, by the way!

Hi @rodellingson ,

After you removed the RTC (Real Time Clock - aka CMOS) battery did you power refresh the laptop at all? (I assume when you say the “motherboard battery” that this is the one you meant).

If not, try the following:

Disconnect the charger if connected.

Remove the main battery from the laptop.

Remove the RTC battery from the motherboard.

Press and hold the laptop’s power button operated for a full 30 seconds and then release it.

Reinsert the RTC battery, reassemble the laptop, reinsert the main battery and connect the charger.

Try to turn on the laptop. If it turns on there may be a message that the Date and Time are incorrect. This is normal as the BIOS has been reset by the removal of the RTC battery and the Power refresh. Once it has been corrected, the message won’t appear the next time that the laptop is started.

What voltage did you measure on the RTC battery? If it was <2.5V replace it.
