My acer aspire wont turn on - Computers & Internet

    I have a few suggestions:-



    1) Just because your laptop power supply may have a light, this does not mean that it works - it still may be faulty.



    2) Does the center pin in the power socket on the laptop "wobble" at all? If it does, this indicates that the power jack is broken



    3) Have you tried removing the battery and powering the laptop off purely on the mains power?



    4) How old is your laptop? If it's old, it MAY be that the CMOS battery needs replacing. On my Travelmate 2310, it's reasonably accessibly under the RAM cover. On other models, you may have to strip the laptop down completely.

    There are a few things to try, unplug the main power cord from the PC and press the power button, with the cable unplugged. this will allow and built up charge to dissipate.


    when plugging the power lead back in listen very closely for an electronic crack sound as this will indicate the Power Supply is receiving power.


    If nothing happens at all no lights or fans start then chances are you need a new power supply.


    If the PSU (power supply unit) is powered but nothing comes up on the screen then you will require to open the case and re-seat the internal components.


    This will void your warranty, if you can opreate a screw driver safely this is an easy procedure.

Disconnect charger, take out battery, take out CMOS battery, take out memory, put them back. If you still have the same problem, then sounds like a hardware problem. Then better to take to some computer repair shop......



Thanks.

Acer aspire 3500 wont hold charge or turn on


remove the battery and see it the power comes on, if so bad battery, check the connector where the power plugs into the laptop, sometime this breaks or has a cold solder joint, you can test this by wiggling and looking to see if the power lights up. last and worst case is a bad main board.
