Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

I reset my surge protector and the computer wont power up. i think i need a new power supply. the power cord is working fine. Please let me know where i can find a power supply for the aspire...


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..

    Hi, I have an acer aspire 5542 laptop it was bought 4 months in Italy where my uncle bought it as a gift for me. 3 days ago when i got home from work i tried to open the laptop and the lcd is just black....


    Hello,

    Sorry to hear about your trouble. Unfortunately, most laptops have integrated graphics cards meaning, the graphic card is built into the motherboard. So, to replace the graphics card means you have to replace the motherboard, which can be more expensive(depending on who does the replacing).

    You can try and find a replacement part yourself by visiting some online computer parts stores or maybe some locally.

    I recommend trying the link below, which I use all the time.
    Click here

    If the laptop is under warranty, and the fault is not yours, Acer should not charge you. Depending on the circumstances maybe you can escalate the repair ticket to have the cost reduced or waived entirely.

    Good luck.

    Hi my original problem of black screen turned out


    Well... if your target is the motherboard replacement (and nothing else is going wrong except of your motherboard),
    you don't need to reinstall the OS again (op hard disk).... if your new motherboard is axactly the same brand/model as the old one, nothing more you need to do, but only the to replace the old motherboard by the new one!!!

    Acer Aspire One will not turn on


    You mentioned a bios system program? Was she trying to flash the bios? If so, then the system (motherboard) may have been damaged. This can occur if there was a power outage or power disturbance during flashing. I would try and re-flash the bios once more and see if that helps. You can get the bios program from the OEM's website and download to a floppy or CDrom. Reboot the computer and see if it will start from disk and lead you to re-flashing. If this doesn't help, you will need to purchase a new motherboard. Check eBay for a resonable priced replacement.

    I have an acer aspire 3680. when i turned it on, the fan,hdd works but the screen turn black. i did try to connect it a VGA screen but i's not on. is it the mainboard problems?


    you may consider if no display at LCD and VGA monitor both:
    1) you may change RAM or change the RAM slot
    2) take out the wireless card from MINI PCI slot
    3) still black screen that should be any damage of display chips or isolated memory (all BGA chips)on the motherboard
    hope it help you troubleshooting

    Acer Aspire (1414) screen stays black when started


    It's look like your laptop have a problem called "NO POST".
    motherboard, cpu or memory can cause this problem.
    To diagnose it, reseat your memory first and after that turn it on.
    if it still no post.
    use only 1 memory and turn it on, if still same,
    Try to move your memory and seated to different slot and turn it on. if it still same, it's mean your motherboard/cpu is bad.

    good luck
