Cause 1: No Battery Power
If your laptop ran out of battery power, it will not show any signs of life until it is charged again. Plug in your laptop’s power cord to the laptop and a power outlet. Wait for a few seconds after plugging your laptop in and check the LED light on your laptop charger to make sure the current is flowing. Allow the laptop to charge for at least two hours, then restart the computer.
Cause 2: No Battery Detected
If the laptop does not turn on even after several hours of charging, there may be a problem with the battery’s connection. If your laptop’s battery pack is not attached correctly, the battery will not charge. Use the Acer Aspire 5253 Battery Replacement Guide to access the laptop’s battery.
