Acer aspire 4520 just won't turn on

It was working fine then it just cut off ,thought it was unplugged it wasn't then when removed the battery and put it back in as you have to do sometimes and rechecked the cord it still didn't come on and won't come on. I hear a clicking noise but no power goes to the machine no light no anything. I have had for about 9 months doesn't seem that it would be the battery.

    I have the very same problem.My acer's about a year old.When you try turning it on the light flicks for a second & you hear a strange clicking sound.My friend who has the same notebook also had the same problem. It seems to be a common problem in this series.

    tried new power cord, new battery still lights flicker and thats it



You should have 12 months guarantee when you bought the laptop so i'd take it back to the shop you purchased it from. Otherwise if it is the battery then you can buy a cheap replacement on ebay.

SOURCE: my acer aspire one notebook won't take a

Hi there, I tried this and when all is said and done I now have a paper weight.This is one for the pros.First thing you need to keep track of all the screws because there are different lengths and different diameters and if you put a long one in the wrong place you can fry the motherboard.What happened when I opened the case it was like opening a book except there was a 1/4 inch connector ribbon that only let me open the case 1/2 an inch.I broke the connector and the end of the ribbon.Never did find parts that fit.You can buy the ribbon in bulk but I only needed 12 inches.( I would buy a dead laptop for parts) but for me I won't try this again.Everything is so cramped and easy to break Its really hard not to break something.A shop will charge any were from $100.00 to $150.00.By the way this is a pretty common problem with this Notebook.Do you know how to solder? Because to fix this that's what you need to do, to fix this,there is a small part on the edge of the motherboard that will need to be replaced. This is part 2 and is at the link above.Thank You for choosing FixYa.........Darryel

My Acer Aspire 5810tzg won't start, I've check the power cable and battery and they work fine on other machines, it just won't turn on

There is one thing you can attempt before seeking repairs. You should try a power reset.

1) Unplug the AC adapter
2) Remove the battery
3) Hold down the power button for 30 seconds and then release it
4) Insert battery
5) Plug in AC adapter and see if the laptop can power on

If it does not power on, you may need to seek support with Acer.

My Acer aspire 4520 windows vista laptop is locked. can someone helph me? to change my user name and password. I forgot my password.

Hi there, this may work, try this.

Take off laptop battery, remove power cord, turn laptop upside down.
Just take off screws on the covers you see, which let you see HDD, Memory,Wireless card,.... ,
take off the cover or check on line for service manual for your specific model on how to remove the plastic cover/ covers, which is covering the CMOS battery which is some time wrapped up with yellow tape. Just remove the battery by holding on the white connector which attached to the motherboard with black and red wires. Gently pull from the motherboard.

Now without the CMOS battery, connect power cord and turn on the laptop, it should turn on. Now turn off , remove the power cord, check voltage on battery , it should measure very close to 3volt (2.5 to 3.0 volt), otherwise get a new one, connect the battery, put back covers, and now you set a new password.

My acer aspire won't power up

Try to connect your PC with the battery on the power outlet if it lights and charge normally. If the lights still orange, try to open the hard disk case and pull it out then try to put it in place again. If still doesn't go, try the memory card and clean it.
But I suspect that the battery has been overly charged. Try to look for another battery of the same model if it works with another and new battery.

Acer 4520 woun't turn on

More than likely it's the motherboard.

You can try resetting the bios by unplugging the cmos battery and the main battery for 5 minutes.

But it's a long shot.
