Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook
My Aspire 5315 has no power. I have removed the battery and unplugged the adapter, but the computer still has no power for two days now.
I actually contacted Acer by email for this and got a reply in less than a day.
Try the steps below for a power reset, to eliminate a hardware problem with your notebook:
1. Disconnect the AC adapter from the laptop.
2. Remove the battery.
3. Press and hold the power button for about 30 seconds then release it. (You will not see anything happen)
4. Connect the AC Adapter to the laptop. Make sure the AC Adapter is plugged in.
5. Turn the computer on as normal.
6. Once Windows boots, insert the battery.

If the 5315 has a reset button like the 5050, remove the battery, hold the start key down with the laptop unplugged for 15 -20 secs. Then activate the reset button for 10 seconds. Plug in the laptop without the battery and press the start button. If no boot - then hopefully your system is still under warranty because the main board will likely need replacing. Tech discussion forums are filled with posts about Acers in the 5000 series that fail to power up.
