Question about Acer (ACERMOTHERBOARD)

1 Answer

No Post, black display....power light on and fan works, but that is it.

I suppose this Acer Aspire shorted out. Kid ripped power supply out of the back, and a tiny spark flew out with it.....the whole laptop shut down immediately...plugged power back in, and nothing.....dead. Re-solder a new jack onto the board. Fine, I have power back, but nothing else really....the power lights come on, and the fan comes on, but no post, or display, or hard drive light flickering (that light just stays off completely). So do I face reality and buy a new laptop? or could it be just some 29 cent fuse blown? (I wish) hahaha

Thanks for your time,

Loralye

Unfortuntately, theres no such thing as a 29cent fuse in a laptop (sorry). its most likely a short in the board caused by the pulling out of the battery or a bad solder job on the jack (no offense)

  3. if fan is not working replace power supply (SMPS) and check (working fan means SMPS is ok, but in some occasions Fan may work in defective SMPS )

Monitor problem


The power light is flashing green can indicate start/restart of the power supply due to shorts circuits or failing power supply due to bad caps, look for bad caps with bulging top first, see example of failed monitors due to bad caps: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Acer aspire one power button comes on but screen doesn't come on.


1/ Take a close look at the display in bright light; can you see anything there? (If so then the CCFL (or its power supply) needs replacing on the display
2/ hook up an external monitor and see if that works (or at least if the light stays green on the monitor)
3/ Any boot beep? any "Windows sound"?
4/ try removing the battery and (using only external power) see if it starts.
4/ remove the battery AND the external supply, hold the power switch in at least 30 seconds. Hoojk it up again, try it.

The power button may not work, that is most common in laptops, or you have a short.
