Question about Acer Aspire L100 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Tried to install some RAM, now my computer won't turn on!

I have an Acer Aspire L100, and there are some tricky angles to work with when installing RAM; I managed to put it all in, but a white wire that passes across them leads outside the main insides of the computer and is connected somehow (I think super glued or something) to the detachable part containing the buttoms; the end of this wire is a black thing, and it came apart from the detachable part, although it isn't actually broken, but my computer won't turn on.

Sounds like you detached the power button lead for the front panel from the motherboard

You are plugged into the DC adaptor. Have you checked the mains wall power is working and if your DC adaptor is working? May need a tech with a multi meter. Also there is a fuse on the motherboard, but thats getting tricky

The Acer Aspire L100 is a desktop computer powered by a special DC adapter and power cable. The computer's motherboard incorporates a fuse designed to prevent any power surges from damaging the computer. If the fuse burns out due to a power surge or for any other reason, the computer will no longer function. You can check the motherboard fuse for damage yourself, then take it to a trained technician for replacement if needed

Shut down the Acer Aspire L100 and turn the tower around.

Press the "On/Off" button on the front of the tower. If the computer will not boot and the fan does not turn on, the fuse may be burned out.

Unplug the power cord from the rear of the tower

Turn the tower on its side and remove the Phillips-head screws connecting the back panel to the Aspire L100's cabinet.

Pull out the motherboard assembly gently from the back of the cabinet. The internal fuse is located on the motherboard behind the DC power jack, which is to the right of the monitor jack

Let me know if this helped..

    When turned on, The fan comes on, but no signal to Monitor.


    Ok buddy from this we come to a conclusion that the power supply and the motherboard are fine.

    So for the first and most common problem, remove your RAMs clean them carefully and install them back in, there can be a memory problem, hope cleaning and reinstalling works, if you have a spare working ram try installing that and check that does your computer works fine.
    Try this step, and if it doesn't work you will need to provide me with further information, but try that one first.

    Power but no display acer aspire L100


    Try these sequence(you need another one good computer to test and interchange component and you will find out the problem):
    - check your RAM, if you use two RAM start computer using one and interchange it to find out which one is bad
    - if your RAM OK, check your VGA
    - if your RAM and VGA OK, try to check your power supply, sometimes defective PS cannot supply sufficient power to all component to work.

    hope this will help you.

    Graphics upgrade


    As long as you have a open vga, vga e, or pci slot in your computer you should be able to install a new video card. the Acer website says your motherboard supports up two gigs of ram, I am not sure how much ram you are running but if it is under 1 gig I would consider upgrading that also. as far as a graphics card goes get one that has at least 512 mb of its own ram so it dosent pull from your system ram as I am sure your current on-board card is doing. Another couple of hints are: if you are running Windows Vista you they call for 1 gig ram for optimal performance, also it is very important that you un-install any graphics drivers before you install new ones, and when you install the new card read the instructions completely before you do anything.
    hope this helps
