Hi,
Please first of all you check with the removing the monitor cable and check any message is coming.
2.check with refixing all the cables.
3.check whether fans are moving if not this is the issue with smps or power switch.
4.if fans are moving but no display tap the num lock key if LED on the k/b is blinking then this is a RAM issue otherwise mainboard issue.
Thanks

Very simple unplg the power cord and the display cable and press the power key on the cpu for 1 min & then plug the power cord and the display cable and again press the power key normally you system will work perfectly.

Its just the extra power on the motherboard which needs to be drained out.

Enjoy ......

Hi, I've had my Acer aspire laptop for a few years now, but I haven't used it for over a year (Because I got a desktop). So when I've come to turn it on today, It won't work. The screen...


Start with pulling the battery and power, then hold the power button in for about 30-40 seconds. Then plug the power back in (still no battery). Try to power up the computer. If it boots, shut it down and put the battery in and try again. If it boots the issue was cleared. If it boots with the power cord but not with the battery added, you have a battery issue.

Hope this helps
