Okay, now ignore everything you just read. Plug the laptop upto an external LCD or monitor and turn it on. Does it come on? if it does then its quite likely that one of 3 things has gone, Your CCFL (backlight), the inverter board that powers it or the the screen as a whole. If you look at it in good light is there a faint background? Also are all of your other system lights coming on and the fans spinning?

If the screen is blank remove the battery and the power cord. Wait a minute and plug in the power cord and try it. If it works you can put the battery back in. If it still fails it's probably a bad motherboard.

SOURCE: It wont power on. The power light comes on but

Try these troubleshooting tips, they may help.

Power is on, but nobody is home….

This is a common problem I see a lot and there can be multiple problems here. First off, if you have lost the backlight on the LCD, you might not be able to see what is on the screen….LCD makers are making the panels very dark and if the light has failed it is very difficult to see what may be on the screen. Try shining a flashlight on the screen near the bottom and see if you can make out anything on it.
If not, attach the laptop to another monitor using the video output, you may have to toggle through the video outputs on the laptop by using the Fn key + one of the “F” keys….sometimes it is F4. If you see your desktop on the external monitor than your screen may have died but your video card is still good. In this case, change out the screen and inverter.
If you still can’t manage to see a display, then the other issues are a virus or malware that has changed the resolution to one the video card cannot process, in which case, the hard drive would have to be removed, attached to another computer and scanned to remove the bugs.
The video processor or video card has failed on the motherboard. If the computer has not been cleaned and has run hot, the processor can suffer significant damage that can result in this condition.
Work on simple first, until you get to complicated. In the end, worst case scenario is the main board has to be replaced.

Possible hard drive failure


Does the splash screen come up? Most of the time if it is your hard drive the ACER splash screen will come up and then a Hard disk 0 error after that. If nothing appears on the screen then you have a bigger issue.

Is there any noise at all (Fan, hard drive spinning)? If so try hooking it to a external monitor to see if there is any movement. You might have a problem with your LCD.

Had trouble booting the computer over time. Sometimes power light would come on and nothing else. By unplugging, waiting 15sec it would power up. Over time this stopped working. Eventually power light...


Time to look for a new computer. That and take out your hard drive to copy your files over.

Sounds like motherboard problem. Probably not worth repair.

I've got an HP desktop with similar problems. It turned on one day just fine. The next day not. I don't even get the boot up screens. Disconnecting Hard Drive and CD/DVD components do not help. I should at least get some BIOS POST beeps and a Hard Drive Not Found or such. I do not. On occassion it will boot to a blank screen with white cursor in upper left. Most the time no screen at all. On rare occassion it comes right on and boots Windows. I guess it could be the power switch ... but I doubt that.

Wont boot no bios screen nothing


Check your memory card. Reseat or clean its edge connector with soft eraser.Do this after you shut it down properly , battery disconnected, and no any other power source is connected.

That is the first thing to suspect. Or try it also with a spare good ram card.
