Question about Acer Aspire 5100-3357 Notebook
My Acer Aspire 5520 will not turn on. We purchased a ac adapter but this didnt help. The power lights come on but just blink on and off
There could be a problem with the laptop motherboard, and is usually the powerboard which is at fault although with computers the problem could be a number of things, even a combination of problems.
Start off by taking the laptop battery out and try to boot the laptop on AC power only. If that does not work them move on to the system ram (memory), it will be located underneath laptop hidden behind a panel like this >>>>>>, take out the ram, clean the contacts and reseat it, then try to boot up.
Pay particular attention for any beeps that may be sounding from the laptop as these beeps are a code for hardware problems, also look at the power supply adapter itself, look at the voltage and amperage and make sure it corresponds to what the laptop is supposed to take, you will find this information under the laptop on a sticker (usually black in colour), if it does not correspond then take the adapter back and swap it for one with the correct power specifications.
If after all this it still does not want to work i suggest you take the laptop to a reputable repair shop for a technician to look at as with a lot of laptops the memory or powerboard (a circuit board inside the laptop that controls the power) may have gone.
Hope this helps.
