Question about Acer Aspire 5500 5570-2609 Laptop

2 Answers

Hi folks! I bought a second hand 5520 and the thing won't power up. We tried another power adapter and that didn't help. I've been told that if the fan goes out, the laptop won't come on. Is this true? Thanks...Joe

    That mahy be true however when you buy secondhand the first thing you get missing or bad is the mem so before you go into maze check the mem first.

The fan is just an indicator of how the power circiut is doing. The problem could be in the DC jack itself or further up the line. I can give you a link below that is the 5500 service manual with testing tips, diagnostics and complete disassembly guide. You're already dtating simply, now just work your way up. Good luck,

I've just been given a second hand Daewoo fuzzy logic DWF 4094R. I've been told it works fine, but it has a hose missing. This didn't worry me because I like to do cold water washes. But I


I don\'t under stand what help you need.

If the cat urine smell is outside of the appliance then wash it down with Clorox.

If there is a filter on the output of this machine then service that before doing the next step.

If the odor is inside the machine then run Clorox for a couple of long hot cycles AND then run white vinegar in it. The Clorox will sanitize and the white vinegar will loosen and remove minerals that hold odor.

Add a quarter cup of white vinegar to each load until the odor is gone or your clothes will stink.

My thought is that there is a reason they gave you this "working" machine. If you have further issues then let us know.

Good luck,
Mike

Pavillion zv5000 won't boot


Hello.The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.Hope this helps.

I have a Dell Precision M60 laptop and the charger adapter's led light is on when i plug it in, but the laptop won't turn on.I've replaced the battery and tried a different charger but that...


Unfortunately it sounds like you have an issue with your motherboard. If you remove the battery and just try to power on the laptop using the AC adapter and it still won't power on then it's probably the motherboard. The power supply circuit (where the AC adapter plugs into) for the motherboard is integrated into the motherboard.
Sorry. If it's still under warranty Dell will replace the motherboard.

Hi, I have an Asus eeepc 1001 ha that won't power on. I disconnected it from the adapter, carried it to another room, pressed power on and busied myself with something else while it powered up. (So...


if nothing happens at all i would think the motherboard has died, if it has then there is nothing that can be done about it unless you take it to a computer repair shop and have see how much it will cost to get it repaired.
or
Leave it for a few minutes making sure the battery is out and the charger is out, then wait, plug everything back in and see if it turns on if it doesnt could be the charger is broke instead of the motherboard. try and use a different charger to be sure. Kronoguy

Acer Aspire 5520 Power Problems! :(


1. Actually the problem is not with the charger / adapter!

2. The plug-in port / jack of the laptop has become loose.

3. Don't try to work out the charging by adjusting the adapter plug with different angles. It will just damage the plug-in port (the wire inside the port will become loose and unaligned)!

4. Contact the Acer authorised service center for repair / replacement of that plug-in port / jack in the laptop! It'll just cost some bucks!

please rate this advice if it helps....tc! :)

I cannot turn on my acer aspire 5520. when i press the on button, the light flashes and goes off. plzzz help


Hi there! this is a possible power supply problem or the power button from the laptop is faulty.. But first I suggest that you use a different working power adapter that is same power supply for your laptop and try to remove the battery and try to clean the contact point of your batter, to further isolate the problem, if you did this troubleshooting and still doing the same thing I suggest that you bring ur laptop to acer for check up and repair of the power supply system of the laptop, if your laptop still under warranty, bring it to the service center right away.. if not then u can try doing the troubleshooting..
