If your Acer Aspire V-573G is hard to start

That is, when you depress the start button on the left hand side, it sometimes has problem starting up, especially when not connected to mains, then in my experience you may need to get a new CR2032 battery on the mother board.

  • Remove the screws on the underside of the laptop
  • Pop off the bottom
  • Locate the battery (it's in the center)
  • Pop it out
  • Replace it with a new one

You should be grounded and it may be a good idea to disconnect the battery (the big one, not the coin cell we are talking about in this blog post) from the motherboard before beginning. The old CR2032 battery had a voltage of 2.94V as measured and a new one 3.04V. So maybe it started working better for another reason, or that difference is enough. Maybe the old one had an even lower voltage under load.
