Try a couple things for me first--

*put your comp on a flat stable surface.
*look at your power cord. there is a big box in the middle of it. check to make sure the wires on either side of it are pushed in all the way, if it is the kind that unplugs from the box like mine are.
* open your notebook and plug the cord into the back.
* while holding the plug firmly into the back of your notebook, turn it on and try to boot up.

if this doesnt let you turn it on and boot up, you have either an internal power supply problem, battery problem or possibly a bad power cord. you would need to have someone physically check this for you.

If it does turn on. the jack in the back could be worn out, loose or what have you or the cord is possibly bad.

please let me know what happens

Fault finding


What! !O_O!

For a statement, such as, "Motherboard not on", you would be stating the motherboard either does not receive power, or the motherboard does not use the received power.

Primer:
You press the Power On button. The first chipset to receive power is the BIOS chipset. The Basic Input/Output System program is initialized.

BIOS looks to see what devices are connected, does a Ram Memory count, turns the Processor (CPU) on; and hands the computer over to the Operating System. (In this case a version of Microsoft Windows)

If the statement is the motherboard is not turning on, you are in effect stating the BIOS chipset is Not receiving power.

Diagnoses must start from the AC adapter (Charger) You need to know if the AC adapter is putting out the correct Voltage. Also while testing have an assistant, gently wiggle the cable FROM AC adapter TO laptop; and power cord TO AC adapter. Any fluctuation in the reading, means a broken wire.

AC adapter proves to be good, the diagnoses goes to the DC Power Jack. The DC Power Jack is the jack on the laptop, that the AC adapter plugs into. (DC_IN)

AC adapter removed, Battery removed; a small instrument is used to see if you can gently move the DC Power Jack. ANY perceptible movement means a bad DC Power Jack -> Replace.

DC Power Jack checks out OK, then the problem will most likely be the Power MOSFET's on the motherboard. They determine if the Battery is to receive a trickle charge, or full charge. Also determines if the laptop is to run off of the Battery, or just the AC adapter.

Using the HP Pavilion dv6000 series, and Pavilion dv9000 series of Notebook PC's; as an example,

I can give a lot more, than the generic information above, if I had the Model Number of the Acer laptop. This is on the Bottom of the laptop. Post back in a Comment.

I have an acer one, and it went into hibernation, and now it wont come out, when i hold the power button a blue light flickers above a light bulb on the key bored, but for some reason it wont come on


I would remove all the power--that is, unplug it from the wall and take out the battery.
Wait a couple of minutes and replace the battery and, if you are using it with the computer plugged in, plug it in again.
This was a common problem with Vista when it first came out.

Your DC jack may be loose or broken off the system board.

Hi my sisters laptop is a acer 5315 series and as soon as you push the power button the laptop shuts off after 2 seconds


Have you had the power adapter checked to see if it putting out the proper voltage required for running the laptop and charging the battery? You might also want to check your power jack to be sure it is not bad or the solder connections to the board are not broken.

You still need to test the AC cord better.. Wiggling it in different areas to see if there is a break in the wires.... That is why i said watch for the Power light (when I say Power Light, not the one on the ac adapter cord... the power light on your laptop...)to see if it flickers or turns off at any point while you're testing the cord... If you have a Solid Lighted Power Light the whole time youre testing the AC cord (bending & wiggling it) then it is probably not the cord itself and i would then lean towards the DC jack...

Laptop was working fine, but doesn't turn on anymore...


a5e3d98.jpg You might have a Loose DC Power Jack.. Or.. if you're using the same AC Power cord for both laptops that you tested, you apparently have a break(short) in the Power charging cord which is quite common...

To Test the cord..take the battery out and try to boot with just the AC power cord plugged in, If it does'nt power up, try turning and slightly twisting the plug into the port.. LOOK to see if the power light is on or flickers...
