    I also have the same problem. My Aspire L100 just died, no notice, just the sound of the fan and the DVD player. Has anyone been able to get a response from Acer about the problem?

    Same problem. Fan + DVD noise.. Waiting for few hours power on, the system start from time to time with a damaged video board (only the blue color component). From time to time, the system will try to boot with a two short beep : this is a fatal video hardware problem signal. As the video board is embedded in the main chipset, I guess the box is definitely dead. Seems to be bad board concept linked to the recurrent overheating of the L100.

    This Aspire L100 ran flawlessly with quiet fans for about 7 months, then it became intermittent when turning it on. If I unplugged it and plugged it in again, sometimes it would boot. But now it's just dead. Like the other owner's said, the fans run and the DVD drive will accept and eject a disk. But that's it. No lights, nothing. Pressing the "on" button does nothing.

IF you open up the case you will find two or more Popped / bad Capacitors. I was able to replace 2 of them and the system came back up i moved it about 10 ft and then it stopped again my sottering job was not the best but that should fix your problem.

Have you tried all video outs?

maybe the harddrive has cooked?

try another harddrive or boot from a cd, if it can boot from cd maybe an install cd or rescue disk Linux cd, does'nt matter, just a test to see if system will boot.
if so harddrive is most likely bad or setup incorrectly.
if not and you still hear noise from the machine could be video out/graphics chip.

of course there are other things that can cause these symptoms best bet is to contact ACER this is really the only course of action after trying these things, they may have records from other buyers recognising the problem from the level of complaints, and forthcoming to a solution.

if all you people with this problem cooperated/collabarated by making contact with Acer then they would surely see that maybe there is a problem, in saying that/this extensive testing would need to be carried out to ensure that these systems are suffering the same hardware malfunction. time versus worth?

these are the places i would look
