    Do you get any error messages? Do you see any white letters on the screen? What model Acer do you have?

This is either a bad power supply, bad motherboard, bad RAM, or bad CPU. You can find ATX power supply testers for around $15 to test the power supply. You can also swap RAM pretty cheap, so hope it's either of those, because if it's the motherboard or CPU it's going to cost a lot more.

Will not boot to operating system or the bios. no messages and no beeps

You probably have a bad power supply or one of your components is bad. I don't have enough info to point to anything specific, but here is some ideas you can try.
1) unplug all components internally but the power supply and check for bios beeps. Not the front panel wires though.
2) swap power supply or check with voltmeter for +5vdc, +12vdc, and -12vdc.
3) check for operation of fans attached to motherboard.
4) most likely suspects are motherboard, processor, or power supply.

My laptop acer 5220 when I start the system by power Button automatically after about thirty seconds off the system - shams79

the processor shuts itself down because the fans on the processors are not getting on and the processor gets over heated. if you can jump into bios setup please see processor temperature
if all is normal please reset your bios to default mode and save settings by preessing f!10.
next step try to remove one ram if there are two.
third step .. remove any attached device to your system or remove any cd from the cdrom tray. remove any media card if its already there

Gateway gt4010 blue light does not come on the fan run no vidio


Please check the cable running between the monitor and processor unit. Also check whether the processor's inside fan is working or its just the cooling fan which is working. Also check whether the RAM is firmly fixed in the slots.

Please accept the solution and revert for further assistance.

Acer Aspire 5520 boot problem power on linght blinks

If you can't get past the bios boot then likely its a problem with the bios settings or a hardware issue on the motherboard. Make sure the processor fan is running when it turns on.

New Acer Aspire E700 does not load-up

Does your BIOS POST runs then you might be having a Disk Booting Problem, If you dont see your BIOS POST Screen, then check if you can hear any beep sounds, If you hear beep sounds check the ram whether it is properly inserted in the ram slot or the ram might be faulty.(You may have to change the Ram). If you dont hear any beep, check whether the buzzer(Speaker in the CPU) is working, If buzzers were working fine before, then you might be having problems with your mother board or processor. If you know how to work on such problem try reinstalling the processor, ram etc in the cpu . Otherwise call a service engineer to have the job done.

Not booting, then shuts down?

I had the same problem. The computer is getting to hot. I opened the case and removed and cleaned the fan. It was full of lint thus keeping the fan from cooling.
