My Acer Aspire 5100 will not start up

When I try to turn on my laptop, the monitor nor fan will start up. When I first hit the power button, the light for the battery was lit, but nothing on the monitor. In fact, my power light nor any other light besides the battery light is illuminated. Is this the motherboard? I had the LCD monitor replaced about two months ago, and I have only had the laptop for 5 months.

Check if you have anything loosed in the laptop. Do you think anything was left in the computer loose or was not put together right. Try reseat the memory and maybe the hard druve, dvd rom and see that will change anything.

Hope that can help you. It can be a motherboard issue but I think checking these other things first wont hurt you. You go from the easy to the hardest.

My Acer Aspire 5100 laptop won't startup. When I hit the power on button the button light up and stays on. The harddisk light above the keyboard lightup for about 5 seconds and then go off. Notting...

Try starting it up in "Safe Mode" as it is starting up Keep pressing F12 key, I believe it is. Start up in safe mode, if it starts and runs you probably have a virus.

Sounds like the power jack is loose if you have to hold it in a certain position. As for the screen your inverter might be shot. Try connecting an external monitor to your laptop and see if you get a display.

When I press power button, only power button is lit green solid and nothing else happens...nothing on the screen...all black. No sound codes. Tried external monitor...nothing. CPU fan keeps running....

yes its motherboard. GPU has failed. Most likely you'll need to get your motherboard Reballed or Reflowed. I have found some reasonable business partners that do this service through ebay. usually runs 80-140 to get fixed. good luck!

make sure the power adaptor is connected, powered on and your computer has lights confirming that you are getting external power. Make sure your battery is plugged in. Try powering the computer on. Look for any signs/noises from the computer. Try holding the power button down for about 10-20 seconds. Often this can reset the computer. Sometimes you may need to let the laptop charge its battery for a while before it will turn on, Good luck - if this doesn't work, report back with more information - ie any noises, fans, beeps, flashing of the screen that occurs.
