SOURCE: no power

fist make sure that the pwr selector is on the right setting. if that does not work look for the capacitors on the inside. if any have blown that could be your problem. if not im really hope that you did not touch anything on the inside while not grounded. with all the dust and movement you cold easly shock the circuits and fry the pc.

Try another pwr supply if nothing else works.

SOURCE: No video and no power down with power button...

when you replaced the motherboard did you remember to plug the power supply into the 4-pin square connector [to the left hand side of the propcessor!]
that should sort it!

Im not 100% sure about this but may i suggest you change the CMOS battery on the Motherboard, there is a chance that it is flat its a very common battery that you can purchase from your local store, but just change that and let me know what happens

try this...
  • Unplug the power cord.
  • Remove the battery and hold the power button for 30 to 60 seconds.
  • Re-connect the power and attempt a boot.
  • Shut down, put the battery back in and you're good to go.

Acer aspire x3400G

When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problemis with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and takenote of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in and hit the power button to see if it boots.
Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

I have Vaio E-Series. I closed several programs quickly and now the "Logging Off..." screen has been up for an hour. The laptop will not shut down.

Go ahead and hold the power button down until it shuts off all the way. Unplug your laptop and remove the battery. Now hold the power button down for at least 30 seconds and release. Plug in the power cord but leave the battery out for now and turn it on. If you get a message when it starts up just choose to start normally. It should come right back on unless there is another problem that you haven't listed. Once it comes back on you can put your battery back in and all should be fine.

Psc 2210 sounds like the gears just keep grinding then after a bit it stops. says press enter and nothing happens.

perform power cycle
1. Unplug the unit’s power cord from the back of the printer while the printer is 'on'.
2. Hold down the ‘On’ button for 60 seconds
3. Plug the power cord back to the unit while holding the ‘On‘ button down.
4. This will reset the printer’s mechanical systems and discharge all capacitors.
If the issue still persists, then
  1. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the all-in-one.
  3. Wait 30 seconds, and plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
  4. Press and hold the # and 6 buttons on the numeric keypad.
  5. While still holding the buttons, plug the power cord back in to the all-in-one. Continue to hold the buttons for two seconds, and then release them.
This should resolve your issue.

I had this problem assuming that it is the same. Possible solution, (worked for me); With Laptop unplugged, hold down 0, (Zero), key for 30 seconds. At the end of 30 seconds keep holding 0, (Zero), key down and plug in and press the power button.
*I had to press power button a 2nd time*
Computer powered on and booted, though it took nearly 20 minutes for me to get a boot screen for windows; I could only get a choice for Bios. But aftr about 20 minutes of just waiting the Boot screen changed to the normal Boot Menu and I was able to get Back into Windows no problem.
I think I tracked the issue down to a Windows update, but a still trying to define which one specifically.
If this doesn't work; See previous Answers about Power supplies and cords.
