Migregorio,
You are awesome. My computer has been down for days and I have tried everything. It was charging, AC adapter and batt were fine but it would turn on for a few seconds and then shut right off. I unplugged everything, pressed power and wouldn't you know the stupid thing turned right on. Thank you.

I experienced this very thing today. Disconnect everything and then reconnect. Make sure that every connection is accurate and also make sure that the spacers, or gold screws in between the case's body and the motherboard, are in place. If the fans are starting for a split second and then the computer shuts off then this should fix your problem. Otherwise if you're using all of the same components I can't think of any reason this should happen.

My Acer RC500 don't start up anymore.


Check the motherboard for obvious bulging capacitors. If you don't see any you still might have bad caps. Additionally you may have a faulty power supply.

An Interesting Problem


It sounds like the CPU is overheating. When the system boots up, can you hit the DEL, ESC, or F12 key to get it into BIOS mode? Often, there will be a setting in there to monitor the processor temperature. If you can get it into that screen, leave the computer in that mode and keep checking the temp. Make sure the machine itself has good air circulation and isn't in a hot spot in your house (for example, where sunlight hits the main box) If it continues to flounder, you'll probably need to upgrade the CPU fan or install a heat exchanger fan...
