    You need to verify that it is getting power in the first place.

    Have you checked the fuse is ok?

There are several models in the Acer Aspire Switch 10E line. If you start here: . Either enter your machine model or use the drop-down menus to select Notebook, Aspire Switch and then your model. Click on the Documents tab. There should be a User Manual link to download a .zip file. Extract the contents to read the enclosed PDF. Note: the User Manual W10 includes notes for using Windows 10. It doesn't have the contents of the general User's Manual.

With the Acer Aspire Switch SW3-016-17WG, only the Windows 10 manual is available. For the SW3-013P, both manuals are available. Since the laptops are very similar, if a full manual for your model isn't available try looking at another model in the same part of the Aspire Switch line. The link to the full manual for the second system listed above shows up as on my system right now.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number for your laptop if you'd like more assistance.

Then follow these instructions from the user manual at

Q: I pressed the power switch but the system did not boot up.
A: Check the LED located above the power switch.
If the LED is not lit, no power is being applied to the system. Do any of the
• Check if the voltage selector switch located on the rear panel of the
computer is set to the correct voltage.
• Check if you plugged the power cable properly into an electrical outlet.
• If you are using a power strip or AVR, make sure that it is plugged in and
turned on.
If the LED is lit, check the following:
• Is a non-bootable (non-system) diskette in the floppy drive? If yes,
remove or replace it with a system diskette and press Ctrl + Alt + Del to
restart your computer.
• The operating system files may be damaged or missing. Insert the startup
disk you created during Windows setup into the floppy drive and
press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart your computer. This will automatically
diagnose your system and make necessary fixes. However, if the
diagnostic utility still reports a problem, then you may have to perform
the recovery process to restore your system to its original default factory

Press the "Bluetooth" button found just above the keyboard. The LED above the button should illuminate.

    There are six sub models included in the model number you have given and according to the acer website none of the specifications indicate that there is wirelss bluetooth built into the laptop. So it appears that it does not.

    Acer 5570 - Power switch is not working

    Try removing the power supply (from the wall) and the battery pack. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds. Plug the mains power (from the wall) back in and then press the power button. It should work. Then you can replace your battery pack. Don't know why it works but it has worked for me in the past. Good luck!
