Remove any drives and then power on, if nothing displays, replug your memory card,processor and dedicated video card if there is any. Lastly reset your bios, just remove the button shape battery and then place it back.

Good luck!

Thanks for using Fixya.

My laptop acer extensa 5420 doesnot turn on. The power switch light went i hit the on/off switch?

Sounds like the motherboard. Take the cover off the tower and when turning your computer on inside there is a green light and if it goes to an orange light and stays flashing the motherboard needs replaced

Wont post led 3 flashes

if its the red flashing light on the tower, its the hard drive activity light.

when the monitor goes on stand by, does the tower retain power? (green light on and flashing red light sometimes?) Does your keyboard's scroll lock/num lock/caps lock keys and keyboard lights work?
