Most likely you shorted your power plug on *********** board I would think green dust is burned residue. Smell where you plug your ac plug to and see if it smells like burnt plastic?

How to fix power button


Pam,

The problem is probably not the power button. If you have the AC adapter plugged in but you do not see any lights indicating that there is power reaching the laptop (such as the light that indicates that the battery is charging), chances are that you have a bad motherboard. The other possibility is that you have a broken DC power jack (where the AC adapter plugs into the laptop). Neither the motherboard nor the power jack are user-repairable issues. My advice would be to take this unit to a local professional computer repair center and have it evaluated.

I HAVE A LAPTOP ACER AND THE POWER DOES NOT TURN ON


It could be a battery problem. Try switching to AC mode by plugging in to an AC outlet using your Acer power chord (battery charger also). If the charger led don't light, it means it's defective and it can't charge your battery. Please try another power chord or battery charger then. Just remember to take out your battery when using your laptop in AC mode to lengthen your battery life. Regards!

Computer wont start, no signs of life, power supply is good and green light turs off when plugging into computer


Hi there
Sounds like a common problem
when you plug the power pack into the laptop its power light goes off because there is a fault. Most commonly this is connected with the plug or the socket into which it goes or the motherboard.
visually inspect the socket, if the central pin is loose thats your problem, if not then check the plug/jack bend the cable on it as these are prone to breaking. wiggle it around whilst checking the power button and status lights if none of that works then you need to strip the laptop and perform a continuity test on the first stage.
ie between socket and motherboard. please note for any sign of exposed cable and remember electricity hurts on contact be carefull. especially if you test motherboard for voltage.
ps the switch is pretty reliable and i would not poke anything in that hole just yet.

Acer laptop won't boot up


Try booting the laptop with the battery removed while the laptop is plugged into the wall outlet. Acer has a weird problem sometimes with the battery preventing it from booting. Sometimes it will get as far as logging into windows and then act crazy, slow down, and freeze.

Good luck!
