You didn't mention how old your Acer is, but even a newer laptop can have a battery go bad. Have you tried this?: boot to the BIOS and then unplug the power brick. This will allow the battery to deplete completely. After the battery depletes and the system shuts down recharge the battery but don't start your laptop until the battery is completely recharged.
This MAY clear a bad power management setting (I'm making some assumptions here) and allow your laptop to charge properly when the OS is running.
