Acer TimelineX 3820TG Will Not Power On

The laptop is not responding to the power button. No lights, no fan sound, nothing.. The AC cord has a green light on it, so it is not the adapter that has failed. I've tried to start it: - with just battery - with just AC cord - without battery and cord

Make this test and fix it. God bless you
Check your laptop's AC adapter. Ensure the laptop's AC adapter is snugly plugged into the port on the back of the . Also, check its connection into either the wall socket or the surge protector, depending on your setup. Make sure the AC adapter is securely in one of these outlets and not loose. Also, if the adapter is plugged directly into the wall, try another outlet. Your existing outlet may be blown.

Check your monitor brightness settings. Sometimes these settings get accidentally turned all the way down, which results in what appears to be a dead laptop battery or malfunctioning power supply, but is really just a simple fix. Your laptop has dedicated brightness keys at the top of the keyboard, directly above the numeric keys. Adjust the brightness settings here.

    3 Look at the battery indicator light if your laptop appears to be out of battery or suffering a power failure. If it is not flashing or indicating a power problem, your laptop's "LCD closed switch" may be malfunctioning. This switch acts as a sensor which normally judges whether your laptop is open or closed. Sometimes this switch gets stuck in the "closed" position, resulting in the laptop believing it is shut and thus the monitor's back-light staying off. This switch is located right beside either the left or right hinge at the bottom of your laptop's display . Tap this switch multiple times with your finger to attempt to free it up and get it out of the closed position.

    Consider whether your laptop's battery has completely died and needs to be replaced. Average laptop batteries last for approximately 1000 charges, after which point they either gradual deteriorate and have trouble holding a charge, or simply fail altogether.
    Eventually your laptop's battery will have to replaced, and if none of the other troubleshooting steps yielded results this is likely the source of your perceived power supply problems. Flip over your laptop and locate the horizontal outline of the battery, which will be at the top center of the bottom of your computer.

    Notice the battery release mechanism on the bottom of your laptop, which should be directly below the horizontal outline of the battery. Slide this release mechanism to the left to disengage the battery and gently pop it out. The laptop's power supply may now be replaced.

    Remove all the cables, then take the battery out. Press down the power button for 10s. But the battery back in, connect the AC adapter and try to start.

    If nothing happens, most likely HW issue.

    I have an Aspire 4520 laptop. When I turn it on, the green light around the power button lights up, but nothing on the screen. There is power to the system, because the DVD tray opens and closes like it's...

    most likely a motherbaord problem.

    unplug power cord, take out the battery.

    hold power button for approx 90 secs.

    try to power up the laptop again.

    if this fails then try a new power cord, that could be also faulty and not regulating the correct power output
