Question about Computers & Internet
Acer will not charge up or work from power lead
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.

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
