If it's brand new, before doing anything to the computer which might void your warranty, I would call the manufacturer's support.
Youd could get lucky, It might be something simple.
If not get back to me and I'll do my best to help

Let me know if this helps

Either the VGA card, or the LCD, or the Inverter, or all, of these may be faulty, take it back, and get another one, this is unacceptable, and unmerchantable, get a new laptop, or your money back.. do NOT accept repair. This is bad machine and will only get worse. Sorry about that.

Acer laptop wont turn on has power button light up


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...

Go back to best buy, somebody may have already used keygen and used your license key which is why its no good. Microsoft won't help you but simply tell you to go back to where you bought your laptop. I know, that sucks.

Bought used laptop. It worked at first, but now will not turn on. The lights come on, but quickly go off again. I've tried taking the battery out and putting it back in, but still wont' come on.


I have run into this problem before. It sounds like your laptop battery is dead.
You may have to purchase a new one.
Does the unit turn on with the power adapter?

I Have an Acer Aspire laptop and evertime you plug in the charger it will show no signs it's connected and the laptop is now out of battery so it will not turn on at all. Even when my charger is plugged...


Please Please Please change your charger right away .. I Got 2 Acer laptop last week and both had same probelm ..if there would be any fluctuations in voltage from your adaptor it will fry up your laptop and you will be in big trouble. Please dont do any experiments on your adapter and change it right away. I Got one laptop last week and customer tried so many angles like you did and fried up his laptop's motheboard already.
Hope you will listen to my suggestion. new charger is not very expensive.
Good Luck !!

The disk drive on my new advent 5311 laptop will not read any disk i insert into it, instead it will just ask me to insert a cd into the drive when there already is one.


Your disk drive cannot read cd at all, that why it keeps asking to insert cd. Just simply return back where your laptop bought. I think the have warranty of it, it will be replaced for the defective disk drive.

I have a HP laptop that is about 18 months old. It's been working fine except battery is too low to run without using elec. cord. I used it yesterday, turned it off, then went to start it today and the...


I had the same exact problem letter for letter except mine was a COMPAQ Presario F730US. I Bought an external 2.5 inch usb hard drive case and placed my hard drive from the laptop in it. I backed up all my files to my desktop making a mirror image of the hard drive. Then I wiped the Hard drive with wipe disk to destroy all my personal data and put the hard drive back in the laptop. I then sent it in for warranty repair for free. It took two weeks to get it back. I bought a new battey(12 cell) on ebay. Then I pulled the hard drive out of the now repaired laptop, put it back in the external usb case, formatted it NTSF and copied the mirror image of the drive back to it. I installed the hard drive back in the rejuvinated laptop, Installed the new battery, and powered it up. Fired up like it never happened. I did not lose 1 bit of data. The reason you make the mirror image with norton ghost is so you do not have to spend a month reinstalling all your apps and preferences. Follow these instructions to the letter and the result will be the same.
As you say you still under warranty get hoppin on this and it will only cost you 15 bucks for the external case and a new battery, which I recommend you get from ebay and not the manufacturer.(1/3 the price).

Hope this helps you,
George

Disk drive problems!


sure...and it's not that hard to do.

first, turn off your laptop

then turn it on it's back, so bottom is visible

look for a screw in line from cd player..usually about 1/3 of way in

remove that, and the cd should slide right out.

sometimes, that screw is closer to the edge.

get a replacement online, after determining the maker of the cd.
