Probably your battery, dont think it would be anything else... i know that they did have a recall, but it was for the T40s and others, you should check at this website, you put the barcode in and it'll let you know... otherwise you still might need a new battery.... there's really not much else you can do with this kind of problem.

My emachine D725 series wont start up after the battery was drained and usb was removed. The power button lit up for a second, cd rom light up too then turns off after few seconds and turns on again..the...


Flishp,
Try running the laptop plugged into power, but without the battery. If this works, try putting the battery back into the laptop; if it continues to work, let the battery charge over night and see if you can run the laptop from the battery. If when you plug the battery in the laptop turns off, you need a replacement battery.


Please let me know if you have any more questions.


Thank you.

Wont start up


We will see if the problem is due to the static charge accumulated on the laptop. Disconnect the power cable from the laptop and also take out the battery. Also, disconnect all the external devices attached to the laptop e.g. external mouse, keyboard, printer. Now keep on holding down the power button on the laptop for the next 30 seconds. Put the battery back and plug the power cable. Now try turning on the laptop and let me know if it works. Thanks!

Compaq cq60 wont start


My first step would be to take the laptop apart again. If it worked after the new fan installation, then can you install the old one (bearing the noise for a bit) and see if it turns on. Then replace the old with the new and if it fails, then perhaps the new fan is grounding your system out.

Good luck
Keep us posted.

I HAVE A ASPIRE 5520 IT WONT START THE FAN STARTS AND THE DVD BUT IT JUST KEEPS ON LOPPING


I had the same problem but what you can do is...

Make sure the ac adapter is correctly plugged into the notebook and into the power cord.

If everything is plugged in correctly and it still will not power on, follow these steps to complete a ‘power reset' of the notebook.
  1. Unplug the ac adapter. Keep ac adapter unplugged.
  2. Remove the battery and keep the battery unplugged.
  3. Hold the power button down for 15-20 seconds. (Nothing will appear on the display and none of the lights will light up.)
  4. Release the power button and plug in the ac adapter ONLY. (Please note that a power indicator light should be lit on the ac adapter when it is plugged in).
  5. Normally power on the notebook.
  6. If the unit does not power on, remove the ac adapter and insert the battery into the system.
  7. Plug the ac adapter back into the system, the battery charging indicator light will light up.
    If the battery charging indicator light does not light up, the ac adapter may not be providing proper power to the unit, and may need to be replaced.
  8. If its not the batery or AC adapter you might have to send it to Texas, just go to www.Acer.com

If the docking station is not charging the laptop while docked, it may simply need to be plugged in using the power cord to recharge the battery.
