Acer Aspire V5 571P
Laptop has been like this for a few months and I've had enough. The issue is the battery, it simply has 0 charge and won't charge, the charging LED flashes but very slowly, and it is the 'plugged in, not charging' issue. Sometimes the little changes the battery level bar to like 50% then 80% for about a second than goes back to 0%. It can only run off wall power, and sometimes when I turn on the laptop it says 'plugged in, charging' for a few seconds then reverts back to the 'not charging' state. I have tried cleaning the contacts and many online solutions too.
Eventually, I replaced the battery with a genuine one I bought off eBay, turned on the laptop and... nope, the battery is on 15% (must have been shipped like that) and it isn't charging, the charging LED isn't flashing at all, when I take the power cord out the laptop shuts off, so it isn't running off the battery at all.
Any help is appreciated.
