    They tell me with mine it is the motherboard - and Acer says they do not have parts for this "old" (1996) computer any more

Laptop wont start.

Remove the battery and unplug the power cord for 5 minutes, put in the either the battery or the powercord and power on.

if it doesn't power on, make sure the charging light is lit on the front of the laptop when the power adapter is inserted and plugged in properly.

light blinking when you power on means battery low / no power.

If the problem doesn't go away you need to contact acer for warranty service if you are outside warranty contact a local repairer.

Acer extensa 4420 shuts down right after you push power button

sounds like it doesn't have enough power, is it completely charged? you may want to make sure you're getting power from the charger itself.

Acer extensa 4620 z will not power on have a new ac adapter and power cord . i can charge battery and charge battery light comes on but push power button and nothing

Try the following, one at a time.

- Remove battery then connect power cord, then power on
- Remove the memory modules then power on
- Remove the other optical drives, then power on
- Remove other components, then power on.

This process is to illiminate the faulty component. It is possible that one component is faulty and is causing shortage that's why your laptop won't power.

If this doesn't work then you need to remove the internal components like hdd.

Hope it helps.
