    Your surge protector may need to be reset. Computer:1) Power On switch could have burned out. 2) Power Supply could now be bad.

2 things could have happened, a brown out and a surge a surge (usually what we fear the most about) will spike send electricity up to the computer destroying it, there is also a brown out, a brown out is when the electricity suddenly drops with out a single warning or notice, this can damage your computer very badly call acer, they should be able to fix it idk if its free or not but it does not hurt to ask.

I reset my surge protector and the computer wont power up. i think i need a new power supply. the power cord is working fine. Please let me know where i can find a power supply for the aspire...


The Acer Aspire L100 is a desktop computer powered by a special DC adapter and power cable. The computer's motherboard incorporates a fuse designed to prevent any power surges from damaging the computer. If the fuse burns out due to a power surge or for any other reason, the computer will no longer function. You can check the motherboard fuse for damage yourself, then take it to a trained technician for replacement if needed

Shut down the Acer Aspire L100 and turn the tower around.

Press the "On/Off" button on the front of the tower. If the computer will not boot and the fan does not turn on, the fuse may be burned out.

Unplug the power cord from the rear of the tower

Turn the tower on its side and remove the Phillips-head screws connecting the back panel to the Aspire L100's cabinet.

Pull out the motherboard assembly gently from the back of the cabinet. The internal fuse is located on the motherboard behind the DC power jack, which is to the right of the monitor jack

Let me know if this helped..

    My Aspire L100 wont start up. my monitor says Power Saving Mode. what does this mean to me? and what can I do to resolve this issue


    Hi there, sorry to hear you are having problems, Power saving mode shows that the monitor is not getting any signal from the PC. If the PC fans start whirriing and you see lights then it is either the monitor has failed or your graphics card in the PC. To eliminate, connect the PC to another montitor and check to see if you see images. If you do, then your monitor has failed. If you do not then you need to buy a new graphics card and install it in one of the spare slots on the motherboard.
    If you do not hear any fans whirring or see lights at the front then it is your 1. Power supply failed 2. Motherboard failed 3. Processor has overheated and failed 4. RAM memory has failed Please let me know more information so we can narrow it down.
    Many thanks
