I had my laptop on yesterday morning and it was working fine. Turned it off, left for an hour, came home and it won't turn back on. I've taken the battery out and tried to just use the AC adapter, still no power. I've tried it in other outlets, nothing. I've taken both the battery and power plug out, let it sit for 5 minutes, put it back together, still nothing. No lights, nothing. It's less than 2 years old, could the adapter be dead? I don't want to buy one if that's not the problem.

Re: won't turn on
*Unplug the AC cord *Remove the battery *Locate the memory cover on the underside of the notebook *Unscrew the one or two screws securing the memory cover, and lift up to remove the cover *Gently slide (away from one another) the metal retaining clips that hold down the module. *The module should pop up *Remove the module *Reinstall the module (removing and reinstalling the module is apparently enough to rectify the contacts) *Replace the module cover and the battery *Attach the power cord *Try to power up

Looks like your battery is having a problem. Remove the battery and replace after a couple of hours. If problem remains replace the battery with another to test, if this works, then the problem is with the adapter unit. Get a new one.
Yes it may very well be. Your battery may be running out. Try this: drain your battery completely than take it out of your laptop. Now power on your unit and let your computer recognize that the battery is missing. Turn off your unit and put in your battery and power up. Let the battery charge go to your battery cofig and check on the status. When it is fully charged you should get from 8 to 16 hours of constant battery time. When you jump back and forth from battery plug in your power cord and back and forth you actually wear your battery out faster. Sometime the life of the battery is cut in half. I disable my battery from my computer while it is still attached so you don't have to take it out and just use it when I need it. This will keep more refreshed and will last a lot longer.
Hope this helps, let me know if I can help you with anything else. It would be very kind of you if this does work for you to please rate me or leave a short note. I would really appreciate it. Thank you for your time. JimmyC
Make sure the laptop is off, pull the battery, and just power it up with the AC adapter. Once you get it going, head over to the control panel, and check the settings in power management. It could be that the settings are wrong and it will not let you start it up with the battery installed.
try installing the touch pad driver from www.acer.comnormally it is synaptics touch pad which acer use just re install the driver and everything will be ok pls vote me if it woks , or if u want anthing else lemme know
first try resetting your router.. unplug it for 5 minutes to "power down"... restart it and reboot the laptop... if this don't help.. Uninstall your network card from the device manager.. then reboot and reinstall network driver... if this still does not help.. open your Command prompt (from your Run Menu).. type : ipconfig / release then type ipconfig /renew. this will reset your DHCP server address .. Hope this helps
