Sounds like the power supply is dead. It probably has an inline AC adapter and that usually has an LED which should be bright green if working. Check that and also if it is cold, warm, or hot when plugged into the computer. If cold, no power going thru. Warm to hottish is usual state with green LED.
If you have access to a regular VOM meter, set it for DC voltage and check voltage at end that goes into computer. This should be around 12 VDC. Again, if nothing then the p/s is dead and needs replacing.
If the p/s checks out OK, then the problem is inside the laptop. That will need a technician to check out. Could be anything from a loose wire to a burned out capacitor or chip. good luck.

No power on acer 5520 laptop


test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty


make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty


even something as small as faulty fan lead can cause you problems

computers need all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly


a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all power and data leads make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working


check the CPU central processing unit make sure it has thermal paste and dust free secure seating


also check your computer ram modules and cmos battery make sure it has charge and they are dust free and securely seated some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in


hope it helps

When i charge my acer aspire the power button flashes


The DC jack in the laptop is showing early signs of intermittent issues, the jack is solded to the motherboard which sometimes breaks free over time, this is something that will eventually need to be addressed.

Battery Wont Charge on my Acer Aspire One Notebook Orange light flashes when power on button is pressed I have checked that the charger is working fine but notebook won't come on as battery is so flat. I...


Try this:

Drain the static on the computer by removing the battery and the power adapter. then press the power button for 1 minute and release. Then plugged the battery back in and turned on the computer, if the computer won't come on plugged the Adapter back to the computer and try turning it on.

If problem persist it is possible that the battery already busted and you need a replacement.

Hope it would help.

Power plug socket on notebook has failed.


You will have to have a new d/c jack installed on the motherboard. Not a big job, but you might want to have a techie friend do it for you, as it will require some soldering.

Laptop turns off when power cable is taken out even though battery is 100% charged


Hi,
sounds like the system has a problem taking power from the battery, but is able to send power to it for charging purposes, or the battery indicates a ful charge, when in reality it is bad.
If there's a way to borrow a known good battery for testing purposes, you might narrow it down.
I'm sorry, I'd need to see this one to offer any further advice.
Good luck
