The on/off switch may be bad and needs replacement. but there are also numerous other reasons it won't turn on. motherboard is fried, connections are bad, hdd bad, connections inside are loose etc. you may need to have someone open it to check for internal problems.

Acer won't turn on ,no battery being used only ac power


I have the feeling that the battery has to be in place to allow the AC power to be transferred to the mother board

Gateway 500xl pc will not turn on power button is lit up yellow


A LOT of Gateway computers will go into this catatonic state because of a dead battery. The battery is on the motherboard -- it looks like a metal disk about 1" in diamter. Check it or replace it. This applies to laptops too (not the actual laptop battery, the CMOS battery -- a laptop will have one on the motherboard too)

Hope this helps

Acer laptop shut of during power outage .


From the Acer website:

Issue
Power Issues or Will not Boot
Solution
If the notebook does not power on:

Make sure the ac adapter is correctly plugged into the notebook and into the power cord.

If everything is plugged in correctly and it still will not power on, follow these steps to complete a ‘power reset' of the notebook.
  1. Unplug the ac adapter. Keep ac adapter unplugged.
  2. Remove the battery and keep the battery unplugged.
  3. Hold the power button down for 15-20 seconds. (Nothing will appear on the display and none of the lights will light up.)
  4. Release the power button and plug in the ac adapter ONLY. (Please note that a power indicator light should be lit on the ac adapter when it is plugged in).
  5. Normally power on the notebook.
  6. If the unit does not power on, remove the ac adapter and insert the battery into the system.
  7. Plug the ac adapter back into the system, the battery charging indicator light will light up.
    If the battery charging indicator light does not light up, the ac adapter may not be providing proper power to the unit, and may need to be replaced.
Also, depending on whether your power went down "clean" (quick and stayed off), or went down and quickly came back on and off many times. Or when it came back on "clean" (came back on quick and stayed on), or it came on then off many times, your power supply may have been damaged from the power surges Are you having any problems with any other appliances?

hi

in both the computers unplug the power cord and any external device attached to the system.

Press the power while the power cord if unplugged for 1 min exact, plug the power cord and see if this works. As there is extra power on the mother board which needs to be drained out

Most likely your laptop is going into sleep mode. Lots of them do not like sleep mode if nothing happens when you push the power button try to hold it down for about 5 sec. your computer should power off and then you can start as normal. If this problem persists change the options in your control panel to turn sleep mode off. That should solve it.

the charger might have the problem, and the light that you are seeing apart from the light next to power/battery is the hard disk led, this is showing that HDD is active, your motherboard is not damaged. you might want to check if you need to defrag the Hard disk by right clicking my computer then selecting manage, there you may analyze whether it needs to defrag. now you may check the charger if its chrging by clicking in the taskbar.
