    The computer I am referring to is not a laptop. It is a personal desktop computer. It does not have a battery in it to my knowledge, Everything connected to it works, the printer,etc. It is simply that the power will not turn back on. I have a router cinnected to it for my laptop and it is working just fine. The monitor and computer power switch will not turn on. I only6 use ny laptop in emergencies as I di not loike the keyboard.



    Thank You, Barbara

HI, you will need to replace the power supply unit that is located on the rear side on the top left hand side of the CPU tower. your power cord plugs directly into the device that will need to be replaced.

You can find these power supply units at any local CPU hardware store or best buy or office depot.

Try doing a static discharge. Unplug the machine, take out the battery, hold down the power button for 30-40 seconds then try powering up again as usual.

I accidentally turned off my Acer monitor when I moved it, which lever turns it back on?


It might be possible while moving back the monitor cable may be loosen or it may have come out. You need to make sure monitor power cable is attached correctly to the power connector.
Also make sure you press the power button on the monitor as well as on electrical power switch to turn it ON.

It also doe the same if you use this monitor to your brother's PC? Just want to make sure since you will have to open up the monitor if the monitor is bad for sure.
It is more likely to have power supply problem due to unstable DC feeding the circuits because of bad DC filter caps as you can see to these ACER monitors here and also ALL other brands as well.

Acer monitor won`t turn on


Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed ACER monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.
