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.

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 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.

Acer laptop wont turn on has power button light up

This is a common problem with Acer units, both desktop and laptop. The motherboard fails to read the system BIOS at startup. Removing the battery from a laptop merely removes the power source, but not the stored memory. If you are able to locate the CMOS battery, or the cell battery the size of a US quarter dollar, that is the system battery. Remove that, wipe with a lint free cloth (coffee filter) then replace.

If that effort fails upon replacing the cleaned CMOS battery and laptop eneregy source, then a new coin cell may be the solution.

If a new coin cell fails to resolve the problem, the motherboard itself is the culprit. Time for a new laptop or desktop.

Hope this helps you...
