Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

1 Answer

Static electricity causes my Acer Aspire One series laptop not to power on.

I'm supposed to remove the battery and hold the power button for a period of time but it won't always work immediately. It could take days. I want a simpler, quicker solution.

Removing the battery and holding the power switch on for a minute will only assure complete discharge of all power. After this try using JUST the power supply. If that does not work the main board may be damaged.

SOURCE: My Acer Aspire 5570Z laptop's power button issue

Underneath the power button that you see is a small board with a tiny tactile button. These tactile buttons because they get used alot tend to go bad. They will get worn out and then eventually won't work.

Best thing to do is to go to this page courtesy of Acer:

There is a phone number there and they should be able to tell you if your laptop is under warranty. If its not, ask them the name of the board underneath the power button and its part number and you can search for it yourself on the internet to get the best price

The power button may not work, that is most common in laptops, or you have a short.

Unplug the computer, hold the power button down until the laptop shuts down, then remove the battery. Plug in the charger, and try powering up. If all is okay, shut it back down, unplug it, and reinstall the battery. Then, plug it in and let it fully charge. Restart it, plugged in and with the battery installed. Good luck.

Acer aspire 4339-2618 will not turn on

Is the new charge really one that is supposed to work with your machine? If so leave it plugged in for a about 3 hours and let it charge the battery. Then try turning it on again with the power cord and battery in place. If it still blinks and powers off remove the power cord and try turning it on with just the battery. If it blinks and turns off again the same way then you more than likely have a motherboard issue. Lets rule out the static charge issue by removing the power cord and the battery, then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in but leave the battery out and try to start the system up again. If it boots then put the battery back in and Thank The Lord because a dishonest repair shop would have charged you for a motherboard repair. If you can't get it started get a quote from your local computer shop then try the guys at They will fix it and ship it back by Fedex or UPS. Most times their price beats any quote you find including the shipping charge.

Acer aspire 4315 no power, whitch component have to change ?

the component that have to change is the power supply. You might as well try to turn off the unit completely and remove the cables & battery to it. Then, press & hold power button for 8 secs. Reinsert the peripherals and turn it on. Most likely, the power supply inside your laptop would be the main cause. Contact ACER dor possible repair of that..

I have a Acer one 532h and when I power it up I get a black screen with a solid cursor. From here I'm unable to do anything. Please help!!

System is having problem with reading the harddrive or maybe getting a no post issue.
First, drain power from system by removing battery and charger and hold down power button for 10 seconds, put battery and charger back to turn on system, by this we can eliminate any static electricity that might cause the problems
Second, check the bios if harddrive is detected, if it is detected then we have a no post issue which is caused mainly by somethign on the mianboard and the usually will be the rams which you can easily reseats.

My acer aspire 5050 dosent start up after you shut it down and boot it up? Help me!!!

Unplug the power supply, remove the battery then press the power button 10x or more holding each press for about 10secs. Insert the battery, plug the power supply and turn it on. If it doesn't, repeat the steps. This should remove the static electricity stuck in the mainboard.

If it turns-on, set your laptop to hybernate when you close the lid so you don't need to shutdown it anymore. If it runs out of power while in hybernation, it should start again.

Power supply flashes green and no lights on laptop

Remove battery pack, press and hold power button for 5 seconds, then put battery pack back in and restart pc. This should take care of it. A bad memory stick can cause problems like this as well.

My screen is black but the green light is on. What's wrong?

• REMOVE YOUR AC ADAPTOR CORD, that's the wall power, remove it.

That will drain any static electricity that has built up on your laptop system board and many times fixes the problem of a black screen. After the 30 seconds re-connect your laptop to the wall power and hit the power button normally and see if the laptop comes back up.Else replace your battery.
