Acer Aspire won't start

Hello I have an Acer Aspire, i'm not at home but i believe it is a model #5920-6914. It has worked perfect for the past 6 monthes i've owned it. One day after not turning it on for about 3 weeks it simply would not start. No lights, no fan, nothing. I tried running it off of a live outlet thinking maybe the battery was just dead but still nothing. The charge light does not come on but the light on the actual charger does. So it seems as if there is just no power getting to the laptop, could this be the computer's motherboard? The charger consists of two separate components, the part with the cord that goes into the wall and the rectangular black box with the green light (the green light comes on) and then the cord that plugs into the recangular box and goes into the computer. Could the problem be with this second cord running from the box to computer? Please help!!! I took mine to get it repaired and it is the motherboard anyone know where to get another one?

    no I had to take it to a computer tech and it was discovered that the mother board is fried. it seems to be a common problem with this computer

    unfortunately the motherboard is shot in this computer. I have discovered there are many others that are having his problem.

    thanks for your time

    so you are saying it is the motherboard or not? also you should check to see if the battery is connected properly and maybe try taking the battery out and just using ac power.

There is one common flaw with most all laptops. The socket plug for the power cord is connected to the motherboard. When you plug the power cord into this socket it applies pressure or weight on the socket inside the computer. It sounds as if your charge cord is working. Moving the computer around while it is plugged in can cause even more stress on the plug socket.

Try this...but be careful...using a small item such as a toothpick or other non-metalic item...push up and down on the plug socket. If it moves around this is not normal and probably the cause of your problem.

I fixed my laptop by soldering the contacts of the socket back down to the board. I don't suggest doing this yourself unless you know how to take a laptop apart. Check with your local computer repair shop and have them give you an estimate to either fix by reconnecting or replacing the motherboard. Hope this helps. Thanks!

Ok i have had my acer aspire 5315-2326 for a year


try downloading the compatible acer aspire webcam software for your laptop. My laptop is also acer. It is aspire 4730z and it works perfectly fine. I think the software you are using is not compatible with your laptop.

Also most aspire models have lesser durability webcams. It gets really annoying when webcams of aspire won't work. I completely understand your situation.

Just follow my instruction and it will work perfectly fine.

Is it possible that you rotated the camera past its 225 degree maximum and damaged it? Just curious. There are several other camera types installed on the same model. It might be an idea to verify that. Also XP or Vista drivers ? Just a few questions. Best
