Power on problem with Acer Aspir 5600. It was full working condition untill itsuddenly printed blue warning screen about some file missing from Windows. Then it turned on for the last time and wasn't working stable(very slow, some errors appeard) but i tlooked like some simple virus more than a copmuter problem. SSince then whenever I press the power button it starts up the CPU fan and turn on control lights but after 5 secs fan is off and after another 2 secs all power off. And after 3 secs it reboots automaticly. This proces keeps repeating several times (3 - 7 random). Can you help me? Thanks. kayo

if the poer light turns on but nothing happens on the system possible the power supply on the motherboard which distributes the power to all the components of your laptop. and this means that you will need to have you system motherboard replaced, if I may have you tried removing the battery ans turning the system on using the adaptor only ? try it it the system turns on possibly the batter is causing the motherboard some issue on distributing the power to the system and may need to be replaced, try the batt first before going to the option of replacing the motherboard ^_^
If you don't have documents, pictures, etc on the hard drive that you need to backup, try running system recovery by doing the following (not sure if this works on the version with a solid state drive): WARNING: This will format your hard drive and return your netbook to the condition it was in from the manufacturer. 1. Turn on the computer 2. Press and hold Alt + F10 3. Click on Restore System to Factory Default 4. Ensure the netbook is plugged into AC power instead of running off the battery and click OK
