There should be a 20 pin connector and 2 -4 pin connectors from your power supply. These should be connected to the mother board as follows 20 pin plus 1- 4 pin to main power connection on mother board,will only go in one way, the other 4 pin will connect to board close to the Processor, all other power connections are for your hard drives and dvd and maybe your video card . Good luck

The connectors will only fit on one way (all of them, including the one referred to by James Miller above) but you probably do not need all the connectors coming out of your PSU. You motherboard wil probably also have a separate 4 or 8 pin socket for connection to another cable from your PSU to supply power to the processor. The PSU will also have a number of connectors for powering up the hard disks, CD/DVD drives etc. For a more detailed/precise description of how each connection should be made you will need to supply your computer's model (or motherboard number) number.

I stopped using my acer aspire l100 when I got a laptop. I wanted to use it again so the other day I hooked it up and I got nothing. There is no light on the computer and the power will not switch on. My...

First things first if you put the wrong RAM in it would still turn on but it would beep at you. If the front switch isn't sticking I doubt it is that. You can test it by following the wires from the switch to the motherboard, disconnect the wires and use a flat screw driver to make contact between the two pins or if more pins make contact between the + and -, if it turns on then yeah it's the switch. The small 3v battery is only used to save your BIOS settings.
Lastly, yes it most likely is the power supply. I'd really just start with the power supply as it is the most common component to go out.
Comment back if you need more assistance.

Acer aspire 4520g cannot start

I am assuming it does this even if it is plugged into power supply. Try removing the battery and then re-installing it. Maybe it has come loose or has a bad connection. When the power supply is hooked up does it show that the laptop is charging? Have you left the charger on there overnight? Maybe the battery is really weak. It sounds like a bad battery to me but the only way to know for sure is to buy a new battery or test it with another good battery and see if it does the same thing.

Bios reset on a acer aspire 1640z

To reset the bios in a laptop you need to unplug the power supply and remove the battery. Once you do that press and hold the power button for 45 seconds then put the battery back on and plug it in and then try starting it. Everything in the bios will be reset to the factory. 
Good Luck

Acer Aspire T300 takes several hours for light on start up switch to come on and then the computer will then boot up okay. Have to keep the computer on all the time so that I don;t have to wait all this...

My first thought is that you are right. My second thought is that your computer is probably a couple of years old and some power supplies will wear out. Especially if there's a lot of dust bunnies running around. I'd first take a vacuum to it. Put the vacuum right on the fan of the power supply and let it spin it up, then move it to a spot opposite to that. If you can, remove the case side and vacuum inside as well. Get all the nooks and crannies, but be careful you don't knock anything loose. No guarantee it will help, but it just might.

Acer Aspire 3000 Power Issues

In this case myself assume that your acer do a problem in the memory, try remove and clean the memory.

1. boot your acer without the memory. hear beep? if yes,
Only memory has a problem, if no, then;

examine the mainboard of your acer.

If you can hear a beep then fix back the memory and start the system.

if this not solve the problem, replace the memory.

In case that it hard for you to open the laptop let the repairman do it for you so that all your problem will be examine.
