Question about E-Machines T1360 PC Desktop

Acer Aspire 5600 wont turn on.

First off let me say I am an idot that more than likly caused this issue but if you guys can help me fix it I would praise the ground you walk on. So here's the story.

Main desktop ethernet was fried by a lightening storm so I was down to my wirless connection with my Acer to rely on. No problem there. Booted it up connected to the net, did my thing... only here's where I messed up, I went to bed and Left the laptop on. It was plugged in, storm was long gone, and it was or so I thought, in a well ventalated area. Morning came, went to go get online, laptop was off. Thought this was odd but paid it no mind, hit the power button and went to the bathroom. Came back, still laptop off... curious, hit power button again, Lights came on for about half a second like it was turning on, then turned off. No fan, no drive noise, no screen... nothing other than the power button. Tried it again and again and till this day, that green light turns on and flips right back off only a second later and nothing...

Here's what I tried...
Took battery out, tried power on with just the cord... same issue.
Put battery in, unplugged the power cord.... Same issue.
Took out memory first with plug no battery... same issue
then with battery no plug.... same issue.
Replaced memory, removed HD, again with battary in, no plug... same issue
The with battery out and plugged in.... you guessed it... same issue.
Took the whole blased thing apart. no dust, no burns... nothing to indicate a problem...
put back together, repeated all the above... same issue.
Finally... Attempted a battery reset... nothing... issue remains...

Sorry for the long drawn out explanation, but I didnt want to waist your guys time running me through endless things I have already tried. I'm thinking the motherboard or CPU is toast... whats your guys thoughts???

    One Last thing I forgot to mention... Battery charge indicator on the front edge of the laptop, indicates when battery is charged. Whether battery is dead and I only use the power cord or if the battery is fully charged, which seems to charge at its normal rate... same issue occures.

    I dont recall seeing the CMOS battery when I had the computer apart the first time. Do you know where it might be located? Is it on the side of the board under the Keyboard where I will have to disassemble the entire laptop again or can I rach it by removing a panelon the underside of the laptop?

Ther is only one thing that you have not tried I think. Try to remove the CMOS battery from the motherboard for about 15 minutes and reconnect it. It's a small lithium battery.

Where is the wireless button located on the Acer Aspire 5600, how do I turn it on

If there isn't a small button on your laptop, then see if any button on your laptop has a "blue-ish" colored icon that might be Wireless. Pressing FN and that button should activate it.

Acer aspir 5600, i pluged in and doesn't come on? power is on, just it is not take any power i guss

if the poer light turns on but nothing happens on the system possible the power supply on the motherboard which distributes the power to all the components of your laptop. and this means that you will need to have you system motherboard replaced, if I may have you tried removing the battery ans turning the system on using the adaptor only ? try it it the system turns on possibly the batter is causing the motherboard some issue on distributing the power to the system and may need to be replaced, try the batt first before going to the option of replacing the motherboard ^_^

Acer aspire m3201 wont boot up

There are numerous issues that could cause this but if absolutely nothing happens, no lights, no fans, nothing then check the power supply. Use a simple voltage tester to see if you have any voltage on the connectors going to the hard drive and cd/dvd drives. If not this is a pretty easy and relatively inexpensive fix. You can e-mail me at for more help.

Cam nt workin

it is not being used, this is a common fault of the Orbicam, with no answers or newer drivers from Acer, the belo works for me as i have the same problem along with many others.

open up the cam software as normal, then turn your camera to face the back of your notebook, turn it back again and keep clicking the camera start button and eventually it will come on.
