My Acer Laptop not working

If it is not booting try this: Unplug the laptop from its power source and remove the battery. Then, hold down the power button for about 35 seconds. The computer isn't going to turn on, but what that will do is clear any static electricty off the board that commonly builds up on a laptop. After you've done that, put the battery back in and fire it up. If it doesn't start, let me know and we will work from there.

Accer aspire 5920 laptop no power

try to remove cables and battery , then press and hold the power button for 8 secs. Reinsert the cables and battery back, then turn it on. If no power, then that propels you to contact Acer for repair because power supply won't work on your laptop..

My acer aspire one wont turn on. the screan doesnt got switched on. pls help?

Does the power light comes on? Try a power drain. Disconnect the adapter, remove the battery, press and hold down the power button for 10 seconds. Put the battery back and the adapter and try to turn it on. Still no display? Take it to an Acer repair center.

I have an acer aspire 5517-5086, it wont turn on at all, I removed and replaced the battery and tryed plugging it in also, with no results. is there a reset button or something?

Acer extensa 5630ez won?t turn on.

Can you give a location of R138?
Is it on the easy side? E.q. the side of the motherboard wich is accessible by removing the bottom plate? I see Q24, located close to CPU. If possible, post a picture of R138, with some components visible.

Acer aspire laptop suddenly shut off and cannot turn back on

try it without the battery on the laptop. if it boots and stays on, put the battery back on and see what happens. If the problem persists, replace the battery. Acer will replace it free if you are still in warranty

IDK what the power reset on their site is, but you can try this:

Take out the battery and unplug. Hold power button down for 10 seconds. Put back together and try again. If that doesn't work, try removing the battery and turning it on plugged in only.

Unclear here? When you take the battery out, it shuts off? Assuming you do have the power supply plugged in? (sorry, I know it sounds silly that I ask that, but you just never know)

Acers will work with the battery out, actually that is how I HAD to work my acer. I personally would not buy another ACER because of the problems I have had with mine. I had to remove my battery as the keyboard and mouse would NOT function with the battery in place. (the battery never held long charge from new anyway). So I started using it plugged in all the time. (no battery).

As far as the hitting the wireless button and the computer shuts down, I'm wondering if just moving the laptop period is what is causing the shutdown. My Acer too, (because of jiggly PS jack on the back) would cut off is laptop is even slightly moved. Maybe while pushing the button the laptop too gets moved? Unsure. It may be a shortage issue, but I suspect it has more to do with shorted PS jack.

Hope this helps at least some. Good luck!

Acer laptop

First thing to try would be to remove the battery and unplug from the mains, then hold down the power button to discharge all electricity from device, You will need to hold down power button for 1-1.5 minutes.

Once this is done put the battery back in and try again. Let me know how you go.
