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