Hi guys!

I have an Acer V3-571-9423 with that is extremely old but very dear to me and it recently stopped working. It won't on with the (what I believe is the original) power adapter alone and it makes a popping noise somewhere to its right, which might be coming out of the speakers but I'm not sure. The funny thing is, when I put in the battery for some reason it does turn on for a very short period of time, perhaps just over a minute. It is enough time for Windows to load normally and I am able to see that the battery, which was faulty already and lasted at the most 5 minutes, doesn't charge and is at 1%.

The computer then turns off. If I remove the battery, hold the power button for a few seconds, then put the battery back in I can go through the same process again. I opened it and cleaned it but, since I know nothing about this, I wasn't able to spot any problems. What could this be?

Also, the charging light does turn on while the laptop is turned off, but only for like 10 seconds. Then, if I disconnect the power adapter and connect it again, the same thing happens.

Thanks a lot!

It might also be your charger that's at fault. Check if it's not faulty for some reason, it would explain why the battery isn't charging.
