    I replaced the power supply and the problem still exists. I cleaned the fan but wonder if it is the problem. It comes on for a few seconds when I try to turn on the CPU but then it stops.

Could be a faulty power supply or maybe motherboard problem.But I would open the case and clean the processor fan first as it could be a heat issue preventing start up.

My Acer Aspire 5810tzg won't start, I've check the power cable and battery and they work fine on other machines, it just won't turn on


There is one thing you can attempt before seeking repairs. You should try a power reset.

1) Unplug the AC adapter
2) Remove the battery
3) Hold down the power button for 30 seconds and then release it
4) Insert battery
5) Plug in AC adapter and see if the laptop can power on

If it does not power on, you may need to seek support with Acer.

My Acer Aspire T180 won't boot


There is one thing you can try first before replacing *********** board.

Try shorting the jumpers on the CMOS battery. look for the JP3 jumper usually it is near the battery it looks like a quarter coin only a little bit smaller. If your having difficulty finding the jumper remove the battery for 24hrs. this will reset the CMOS then put it back in and power on the CPU.

If that doesn't work then replace *********** board is easy. bring it to a computer shop so they can match the devices in your CPU to match a motherboard of your choice.

My Acer Aspire AST180 shuts down with no warning


Sounds like you have a faulty power supply. The internal parts of your pc produce alot of heat, and if a part is heating up, then it will cause your pc to shut off.

With you saying that unplugging it , and then waiting , and then it comes back on, it sounds like once some part has cooled off, then the pc works.

My bet would be your power supply. Do make sure however, that all your parts are still tight in their sockets.. ie processor, memory , etc. I saw a pc that shut off at random times because the heat sink didn't make good contact with the processor once in college. So you want to check those things.
