Laptop wont turn on at all!

My laptop is a mess! the Acer Aspire 3000 .Yesterday my notebook would not turn on! I had my father work on it and it was working well. But it lasted for about 10 minutes than it shut off. I hit the power button after this happened and this orange light comes on but the screen is pitch black. Today I tried to turn it and its the same thing with the orange light and the screen being pitch black. I tried taking the battery pack out and putting it back in nothing? what to do? another problem is when I've used the notebook it stays on for 15 minutes and it heats up you cant even sit it on your lap because its very hot? Why is that

    I have an acer 3680 and the laptop will turn on but the screen stays black eventhough it is plugged into the wall with the adaptor and the lights on the front of the computer indicating the light and battery charging are lit. What could the problem be and how can I fix it? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Over heating can cause a computer not to turn on, or turn off after a period of time.  You might have some dirt and dust in your fan that you need to blow out with canned air.

You might also try a laptop cooling plate:

My acer aspire 3000 wont boot! i have the black screen. whhat should i do

Try taking out the battery not the CMOS battery power cord remove from input of laptop press the power button to discharge. Let sit for about 15 minutes. When that is complete replace the battery and place the power supply unit and power laptop back on this may do the trick. Now if that does not get it to boot then try the recovery disc option when inserting the restore disc in. Or if Windows disc do a repair. It will assist you will the boot fix. Let the software do its thing.
If that does not assist you then you may need to have the notebook serviced to see what the problem is. It can mean a board matter or if the machine does turn on and you hear fans going or a fan it may be the lamp in the screen has gone out. So many variables involved here that it would be wise to have it checked out by a professional before messing anymore with this Notebook.

Function Alt+F5 to display on an external screen, not working on my Acer Aspire 3000. Other Alt keys for controlling sound and screen brightness are still working.

Try rebooting the PC, sometimes it just does that and wont work. My Toshiba does the same thing, sometimes it works perfect and others it will just flicker and not operate.

Hi I bought a new ACER 5742 laptop yesterday. Its not recognising the CD's but showing the D:/ drive I have uninstalled the CD-ROM and restarted laptop, but doesn't help me.

AS you bought it yesterday, I wouldn't mess with it. Take it back and accept it again when the sales person demonstrates it working or demand a replacement.

My touchpad still wont work for my acer 3000

There is a button to turn on and off the touch pad. Is there a button on your keyboard that has the letters FN on it? if so hold that down and see what comes up. If not search for any kind of switch near your touch pad or that is on the keyboard that is not a normal typing key.

i had the same problem. the battery does something during startup and the only way i found to fix it was to turn it on without a battery while its plugged into the adapter, or leave it in standby instead of shutting down... i dont know if theres a better way, but thats what i do.

Laptop wont turn on at all!

try sensing if your cpu fan is working, it is under the power switch side, you can see small exhaust slots, put your hand beside it and feel if some air is coming out when you turn on your pc.

When you turn you pc on and only orange light blinks, it means that no power was getting into it, it blinks because no electrical power is coming from your power adapter and the battery is drained. Check your power adapter cable, this is the very cause why your pc is shutting down. usually the wire from the adapter to the pc is faulty.
