Power On issues has to do with your battery or power pack. Your CPU Fan needs to get power from the Power Pack or batteries to come on

Follow this tests to ascertain which could be the probelm.

Take out your battery and connect your laptop to the mains directly and turn it on. If it comes on and boots to windows then your battery could be the issue. But if the same problem persist after powering your laptop without the battery then the powerpack or the motherboard or a component on the mother board could be bad.

Take another battery of the same model and put it in your laptop and turn it on. If it comes on and boots to windows then that finally means your battery is bad and needs replacement.

If after tryng the tests above and the problem still persists then you need to take your laptop to an authorized or certified acer solution service centre. Please make use of your warranty if its still within the period for free service repairs

    Apparently when a component on a mother board goes bad it needs to be completely changed

    We have to deal with one issue which is causing the other to crop up and that is your PC going off barely after minutes of turning it on.


    If you have some technical knowledge on PC hardware then follow this step to check your CPU FAN.

    1. Take off the battery and unscrew the bolts on the base of your Laptop.

    2. Also unscrew and detach the keyboard taking off other components that would give you clear access to the mothereboard and CPU FAN.

    3. Check the CPU FAN connectors if they are properly seated on the motherboard. Plug in Laptop to the mains and start it up. Watch out for the CPU FAN if it comes up. if it does then your CPU FAN is ok

    Please if you dont have a technical knowledge on this steps please seek an assistance from a PC Technician to help you do this to avert more damages.

    For the PC going off barely after booting it then you need to perform a harddisk check from the BIOS menu.

    If the test shows a lot of bad clusters or irrepairable sections then its advisable to change it.

    If all this fails then you need to get a new motherboard and update your BIOS to the latest version.

Check your RAM first. then check your cpu fan thats why your acer automatically off, due to overheating of processor.

Acer extensa 5420 bios

Clean out the cooling fan/vents, etc. and try again. If the fan isn't turning, it won't boot up.
If that doesn't work, you may need to disconnect the power supply and battery and then hold down the power button for 30-60 seconds. This will discharge stored energy from your laptop. I'm not sure of the specifics, but this happens to mine every 12-18 months or so. Once you've done that, reconnect the charger and battery and try to power up again. It should work now.
If these steps don't fix it, you have serious problems.

I have an acer extensa 5635 with a full battery that wont turn on.

Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it could be faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

Acer extensa will not boot to windows

What is happening when you press the power Button? Do you see any ligths, Any HDD moves? IF DOES.

TURN OFF by pressing and holding your finger on power button.
wait 60 sec. turn on and repeatedly press several times at F8 button.
If page opens on black and white, Use SAFE MODE.
wait til all line down. Then you will see windows opening in safe mode.
WHat ever you install last, remove, scan your computer for virus,spyware. when its finished, check your computer if need defragmentation. by Accessories>System Tools> Defragment.
If message comes such as windows will do this at schedule time or so.
Just turn off your computer using shotdown option (NOT BROWN BUTTON ON START) go to next arrow.
then turn on again see if windows comes back.
