Well there is a power button on the back of your computer

make sure that this button is on

and make sure that the power cable is firmly connected and maybe u can try to change the power socket also

if nothing is working then its the front panel is not working anymore and needs to be replaced

if u have any warranty on the computer then contact the warranty ppl to change it for u

cheers

Just purchased Acer 605 desktop last night. It won't bootup. What's the problem?


What is it asking you to press? Try pressing the space bar. If that does not work, call the help number listed with the computer.

CANNOT POWER MY V2 DESKTOP COMPUTER


If nothing whatever happens when you turn on - no lights, no fan noise then the power is not getting through. This could be a dud power socket (but I guess you checked that). The on/off switch usually isnt! It is lonked to a relay switch and the link may have failed, or the relay failed. Or else of course a power supply failure.

Hi. When I turn on my Acer aspire t180, only the red button light up, but the green button does not light up . And then nothing happens. Please help me as im having the same problem for months already.


Im guessing the PC starts up flashes the lights turns off and repeats?

If so the hard drive boot sector is gone or damaged. Try to boot from the Windows disk.

I have a 13 month old Acer Aspire ax1700 Desktop. Had turned it on yesterday and Fan was making lout noise. Today I turned it on to check it. Was on for about 10 minutes and it just turned off. There are 2...


It seems that the power supply unit has gone. If you power it on and nothing happens then obviously the psu has gone. The heat that you felt was the psu overheating because of no fan and hence no ventilation. The noise was of the faulty psu fan that got stuck or did not work and the psu got overheated and got burnt eventually. Please replace it with a new one as a repaired psu may work but you cant rely on it.

I have an Acer Aspire computer that was purchased in May of this year. It has suddenly become unuseable. It starts the Acer screen and then the small Microsoft bar then it goes blank except the cursor...


You may be correct about the hard drive failure.
But to make sure that it is the hard drive and not Vista, I would try to run the recovery cd that came with the unit. When the cd boots up, select "repair" and let it attempt to fix the problem. If the recovery fails, I would call the warranty Company for service.

My acer 5100 laptop will not boot. I get a mesage "hard failure may be imminent, press F1 and continue" When I press F1 the cursor blinks at top left of screen and does nothing else.


I have one of these! also did you change your operating system? If not when it boots press F2 it will take you to the bios. In this you will see if your hard drive is being recognized. Let me know what happens and I will try to assist you further. Take care.
Be mucho blessed,

Disk Boot Failure


you need to select ur harddisk as the first bootable device., that option is in BIOS settings. When switch on the system before loading OS press F2 to get the BIOS settings and select boot option in the menu and select your harddisk as the first bootable device. Restart the system now. If the same error is displayed your harddisk data cable may be failed or your harddisk may be corrupted...
