Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
As the subject states, my notebook is not turning on.
When the AC adapter is plugged into both an active wall socket and the notebook there shows an orange light around the power button, but when attempting to turn on the computer it does nothing.
When using only battery power, attempting to turn on the computer only leads in an orange light turning on, not much else.
I have tried to use only the AC adapter without the battery and the same thing happens as when using both the AC with the battery attached.
That orange light is usually an indication that the battery is not working properly. If you turn the computer on and take the battery out and put it back in it the yellow light might turn off. There is another indication that you have something in the power settings that might need to be set properly. Check in the control panel>power settings and see if the battery and power settings are okay. Also, sometimes the mute on the volume might be on. Lastly, I had a laptop that never turned on and when the hardrive was taken out and the power was turned on it still did nothing until it was turned off and the harddrive was put back in then turned on again.
