Question about Acer Aspire L100 PC Desktop
I have an Acer Aspire L100 desktop and it will not power up, not even the blue led to show power is on or the sound of the fan - nothing. I've checked the AC adapter and I'm getting the required 19V at the jack. The computer was working fine, I switched it off and later went back to it and turned it on, but since then it has stopped working. Please help....
It's most likely not the power supply. I have a customer with the same problem. I used a power meter to see if the power supply worked and it checked out perfect. (You should still test it though, just in case.)
The only thing I can figure is a bad motherboard. Unfortunately, there's no visual signs of overheating, arc burns, or the like on this one to make it obvious... just one capacitor (the small one nearest to the power port) that has a slight bulge.
These things don't seem to be build to last, from what I've been reading.
-Break it down, sell the parts that are likely to still be good (wireless minipci card, memory, processor, heck - maybe even the front ports if you get longer cables/extensions), and maybe make around $200 that can be invested in a reliable machine.
-Or drop money into replacement parts. (but after what dj said about a second mobo going bad, I don't think it's worth investing more in this)

Power supply is bad. Replace the power supply.
