Hi im rain ok it sounds like you may have a dead motherboard. acers are proned to motherboard failure. if the fan nore the led lights in front of your unit
are not working then you most likely have a dead motherboard. make sure all connections are correctly
seated. if so then your motherboard is most likely the problem. also check the power cord to insure that the cord is not the problem. further more try disconnecting the main power source to the motherboard wait 5 minutes to insure there is no ecsess power left in Motherboard. reconnect the main power connector back to motherboard and try booting up. if this fails then *********** board is the problem.

So did you unplug the power supply and try to restart it? When you plugged the power supply in did the power light come on on the power supply showing it was working? Blue light usually.

This acer is completly deaa.getting a lot of answers but pc needs to be on it is dead no charger no on light nothing.

take out the battery and try it with just power supply ONLY connectetd to it no printer, nothing. If it still does not come on AFTER you hit the power button and NO lights test the power supply. If the power supply is good then the DC jack might be damaged. AT this point have it serviced or time to replace laptop. Good Luck.

Check your power inputs, cables, transformer and your outlet. If nothing fixes it then your Laptops power supply is dead or dying, have it replaced.

I have an ACER AM5640 and it does not start. The lights on front blink, the CD/DVD drive spins, the cooling fans run, but it does not boot. I created a LINUX bootable CD and tried starting from that, but...

The problem is with your RAM have to remove it and erase the RAM contacts with a normal eraser and should fix it back again, if you know to remove the side cover of your machine open it and there will be a vertically fixed chip in green color its called RAM , it was made locked with the help of two white color locks at both the ends of the RAM , once when you release it the RAM will come separately , after that RUB the contacts with an eraser in order to clean the fungus layer above the contacts , after this re fix all as it is , you will definitely get the display. Thank you.

Blue power light on but no display on monitor

Have the RAM checked. Or if you can do it yourself,
try cleaning the RAM as shown in the image below:

If problem persist, try another (good condition) RAM. If it works, then you'll have to replace your PC's RAM. Hope this helps.

Power lights come on the fan spins battery charges, but nothing else works

This sounds very much like a dead motherboard. I would suggest you get a professional to look at this or send it to acer. Visit thier site if you wish to. I would offer more help however laptop parts are expensive and tedious to replace.
