Hi, I've had my Acer aspire laptop for a few years now, but I haven't used it for over a year (Because I got a desktop). So when I've come to turn it on today, It won't work. The screen...


Start with pulling the battery and power, then hold the power button in for about 30-40 seconds. Then plug the power back in (still no battery). Try to power up the computer. If it boots, shut it down and put the battery in and try again. If it boots the issue was cleared. If it boots with the power cord but not with the battery added, you have a battery issue.

Hope this helps

Acer Aspire Sa90-lb7h desktop Will not turn on


I guess it is a power supply failure can you try and plug it directly to light without using battery remove the battery before you power it on then notice how it behave then you will know the actual problem if it power on with light then it is battery problem. if not the check the harddisk maybe it is not properly fit in. or does it show bios setting or welcome bios

Toshiba equium l10, won't do a thing!!


The cheapest thing to do is to try and replace the charger. But I would not rule out the mother board.

Don't quote me on this, but seems like it may be an issue with the battery. I would take it to a computer repair shop, or at least a RadioShack, and see if they will try the new battery (with laptop plugged in) before purchase.

Computer wont turn on


You might try turnin yer PC off & unplug. Then open the case & carefully remove the battery. Let sit for 5 min. Re-install the battery & put it back together. Plug in & turn on. IF you get a screen givin you the option "last known good configuration" take it
Good Luck

I have an ACER FERRARI laptop. When power plugged in battery light shows, and light also indicates full charge therefore I assume ac lead and battery ok. When pressing start button nothing happens, apart...


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.

AC Adapter stopped working


SmitFraud is not capable of doing actual hardware harm. It can be a pain to get rid of it software wise, but it can't do any harm to the physical machine. I think you've just had bad timing with this problem.

If the charger isn't charging, there's one of two problems. Either the charger itself is faulty, and it's not thinking the battery is charged when it isn't, or the battery is faulty. I would personally take your laptop into a shop that sells the same kind, explain the problem and ask if you can plug one of their adapters into your laptop. If the light comes on and immediately goes out, it's the battery. If it comes on and stays on, it's your charger. Either way you can find out which it is before you have to spend money on a replacement. Do be sure to do it with the shops permission, though - they won't like it if you help yourself, and you might find yourself swiftly banned from the premises.
