Acer Aspire E1-571G - Charging

Hey everyone,

 

I have had my Aspire E1-571G for about 2 years now.

Specs:

i5 3230M

12GB RAM (1x4GB) (1x8GB) - 1333MHz (upgraded from original 4GB RAM)

WD 500 GB HDD (5400RPM)

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

 

It's started to develop an issue while charging, every time I plug it in, it does its normal beep and the charging light turns on and the icon shows that the laptop is charging. 

After about 30 seconds, it goes beep again, telling me that the charger has been unplugged (which it hasn't), it stops charging, the charging light and the light on the power begin blinking and the laptop stops charging.

 

Before the issue wasn't this annoying, I had to plug the charger in at a certain angle and it would charge fine. That doesn't work anymore.

It just stops charging after 30 seconds of me plugging the charger in.

 

I ordered a new battery after reading somewhere that it is a battery related issue. New battery and old battery show the same results. 

 

What could be causing the problem here?

 

I did a fresh install of Win7, deleted the battery drivers from Device Manager, rebooted so they'd re-install. Nothing worked. 

 

Any replies would be greatly appreciated.

 

 

Thanks.

    Could you please elaborate?
    How can I do this?

    I have disassembled the laptop before, just need a clear idea of what you're talking about.

    I tried straightening it with a small screwdriver, I didn't apply too much pressure as I didn't want to damage the charging socket .
    After straightening them (there are actually two strips on my laptop), I reconnected the battery, made sure the laptop was turned off and connected the charger.
    The orange charging light is ON and the laptop is hopefully charging
    I will let it charge in this state for about an hour or more, once its fully charged, I'll power it on to see how it works.

    Thanks so much for the help!

    I couldn't thank you enough!

    Laptop seems to be charging fine now, will take note of the part number in case I run into issues again.

    I keep my charger plugged in all the time so the battery draining isnt an issue for me. My main issue with this was the beep tone that sounds every time the charger plugs/unplugs, and I was looking for a way to rid of that.

     

    I used the solution provided here, and straightened the pin(s). What I have noticed afterwards is that the power icon in the taskbar (Windows 8.1) still shows that the charger is plugging/unplugging every 30 seconds or so, but there is no beep tone and the LED on the front of the laptop doesn't change color from blue to orange, and this is confusing me even more. I mean, I got rid of the beep tone, so yay!, but it concerns me that the charger is plugging/unplugging every 30 secs according to windows.

     

    P.S.: If this needs to be a separate topic, please let me know. I am new to the forums.
