Blue power light off and fan running hard


The led may have become disconnected or failed. The power led can be replaced as it goes to a couple leads on your main board.

Try removing the battery, power supply, hard drive and RAM. Power up and see what happens, you Acer should complain. If it does, the mother board is probably OK. remove the power, fit the RAM and try again. If it now tells you it cannot boot, suspect the hard drive but power down, fit the drive and check it.

Sony Vaio VGC-RC210G blue panel light LED burned out. Need to know how to change bulb?


Obviously the question was not answered correctly. I don't know how well you are versed into taking things apart, but here we go. First you need to unplug Sony. You need to remove the I/O panel on the bottom of the case after removing the front panel. Remove the on/off switch and remove the two lights adjacent to it. You gently pry apart the tabs on the back of the bulbs and pull the lights out from the back out of retainer. Do the same with the light that is burned out. Carefully cut or break the two cable ties and remove complete wiring harness. You need to remove the side Panel (right side looking from the front). Remove the air tunnel pieces (2 of them), The cable that needs to be unplugged from the motherboard. it is the very first along top edge from the left. It is yellow. Open the 2 tabs that hold all wiring down the front (you will see these just in front of CPU fan and behind front grill. Remove the harness. I do have the number in front of me but you can take the harness to Radio Shack and they can give you the correct one. Cut the old bulb off as close as possible. Solder the new one on and reverse the steps to reinstall. Once harness is plugged back onto motherboard, you can test by plugging power cord in and pushing power button. Make sure none of the wires are touching each other or any metal. Put it all back together and you will have blue light (light is not blue, plastic in front of it is). OR you can just use it without that light as it serves no purpose to be pretty and no one but you will know the difference. By the way I refurbish, repair, etc. nothing but Sony PCs. You also may be able to find a replacement harness but they are scarce. Hope this help. OH, the power supply or motherboard has nothing to do with this bulb working or not. If the other two (power on and hard drive activity) work, the bulb only, is bad.

Acer aspire m3640 no power light hard drive light on


Check/reseat monitor cables. If the fan and HDD are running, perhaps the power led is out. Check the monitor cable connections. Is the monitor plug into AC? Turned on? Shut down Desktop , unplug, reseat Graphics Card, if applicable, reboot.

The high pitch sound could be a faulty inverter.
If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

Error why coming


Can you hear any fan or drive sounds? If you don't hear anything at all when you try to turn the laptop on, no little LED's light up, the problem almost certainly isn't related to the hard drive. So if you don't have a live screen, start with the LCD troubleshooting flowchart, and if you don't have any activity at all, start with the power troubleshooting flowchart. Even if the hard drive has failed at the electro/mechanical level and won't spin up, this wont prevent the LED's on the laptop from lighting up, or the LCD from displaying the BIOS information and complaining about the lack of a boot device.

sounds like your system is booting up and running due to the hold power shutdown procedure. you might try replacing the video card or adding one if your video is integrated.
