Question about Computers & Internet
Tryed taking out battery and unplugging power held down start button 30 secs then plugged back in no luck wont power on
This is a common problem with Acer units, both desktop and laptop. The motherboard fails to read the system BIOS at startup. Removing the battery from a laptop merely removes the power source, but not the stored memory. If you are able to locate the CMOS battery, or the cell battery the size of a US quarter dollar, that is the system battery. Remove that, wipe with a lint free cloth (coffee filter) then replace.
If that effort fails upon replacing the cleaned CMOS battery and laptop eneregy source, then a new coin cell may be the solution.
If a new coin cell fails to resolve the problem, the motherboard itself is the culprit. Time for a new laptop or desktop.
Hope this helps you...
