Question about Acer Aspire Computers & Internet

For this kind of issue, please follow up the following steps to check:
1.confirm the battery and ac adapter connect the laptop normally.Maybe the bad connect lead to this problem. If there are no lights when you turn on laptop, one of possible reason is that your adapter is malfunction.
2.the second possible cause is laptop dc jack failure. If the dc jack is broken or loose, you are required to replace it or repair it.
3.Another possible reason is that there is something wrong with laptop motherboard. For this situation, it includs two kinds of possibility,a failure in an electronic circuit and BGA malfunction.
For more detailed reasons and solutions, please have a look at the following article:
If you verify your laptop adapter is dead and you plan to order a new one, I recommend one for you on the basis of your laptop model:

SOURCE: acer won't boot
Just go to the acer website and http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_one_150.html and d/load the bios update 3309, open the folder and copy two files to a formatted fat usb stick. Rename the file FLASHIT to FLASHIT.EXE and the second file 3309.fd(bios file) to ZG5IA32.FD rename them precisely like that, please check your spelling is correct. Insert the usb stick into the usb left hand side make sure the charger is plugged in . Hold down keys fn+esc and power up the laptop, when the power led begins to blink release the two buttons and press the power button just once, observe the usb stick flashing indicating it's flashing the bios, please note this can take a few attempts, I once struggled for a few hours until I finally tamed the beast :) be patient okay, I would like to point out if you wish to update within winxp use the same bios update 3309 , extract the zipped files to a formatted usb stick and rename the two files again but DO NOT REMOVE or interfere with the other files in the folder , with the laptop up and running open the folder and click on the Insysdeflash file only within the winflash file, this will flash your bios within windows and update it to the latest version, I read that flashing it when using the fn+esc keys merely restores the bios , I have tested this and mine updated to 3309 only when I flashed my bios within windows using the complete d/loaded bios update as mentioned . It will be worth reading the read me file to see what has changed in this bios version, I can tell you that for those out there that have password issues i.e. hdd set, the need to enter password with upper case is not a requirement more and there are a lot more fixes too, enjoy and I hope this bit of info was useful:)

I'm sorry to tell you but water can be vary damaging to your laptop. When its spilled on electronics while running it can cause shorts and they can permanently damage your laptop beyond repair. But Thats only a worse case scenario, your laptop may still be able to be repaired.
The first thing you should do is immediately remove the battery and unplug the laptop from the ac adapter to avoid further damage, Then try to get as much of the excess water out as you can, you could turn it upside down on a towel. If you have dry rice or a desiccant(Its a chemical used to **** up moisture) and a seal able container your could submerge it in either to help dry up the water as fast a possible.
The next step would be to take it to a local repair shop asap, avoid geek squad and the like, as there likely to cost as much as a new laptop. I would find a local shop and ask them how mush it would cost for them to dry it out and test it. If you cant afford to have it fixed at a shop or the amount of water was minimal, you can try to leave in the container for a few day and hope for the best next time you start it. I've save quite a few soaked electronics this way.
I hope I could Help.

Check underneath and use a small screwdriver to open the small rectangular panel with the image of a stack of CDs near it. This is where the Hard Drive sits.
Check to see if the Hard Drive is properly fitted properly docked into its socket and screwed down or held down properly so it is immobile during use.
If this is not the problem, tap the Fn + the correct function key to enter the Boot Menu at Start Up and use the keyboard arrows to select the Hard Drive boot option.
Make sure there is no CD or DVD in the Optical Drive.
If none of these is the problem then, regrettably, your hard drive may have failed, so remove it and test it in a hard drive dock or an external 2.5" Hard Drive Enclosure.
If it has failed you will obviously need a new hard drive, bootable operating system disc, drivers disc and programs and security software to reinstall everything to the new hard drive.
Unfortunately, any data on the old drive will be lost.
It is very unusual for a Hard Drive to fail suddenly without some prior warning or signs of failing (the only realistic way would probably be through a drop, severe knock, serious mains power surge or mains power cut, incorrect shutdown procedure, or sudden disconnection of the power cable during use).
Back up regularly to an external storage device and do not ignore any warning signs. Also plug all computer equipment to the mains via a Surge Protector/Suppressor to prevent damage from power surges or fluctuations.
I hope this helps

Acer chargers have a very short life time, in the past 2 years I had bought 2. Just buy a new one from amazon they're very inexpensive. Here's the link:
