I assume computer was starting correctly before? this is older computer and it is using sdram memory, locket on them sometime do not clip in correctly.

1. switch off computer
2. remove power cord
3. remove side wall
4. remove sdram
5. check sdram orientation and type, if they correctly align with registering notches
6. release lockets to max, (outward from slot)
7. re-insert correctly oriented sdram till lockets close into sdram stick (you may give them bit "help" to close in position)
8. re-connect power
9. start computer

if copmuter start normally, that meant tha tyou fixed the problem, if not, switch computer off and remove power cable, check motherboard power cable insertion, and repower again.

if computer start, lose cable was the problem.

if computer still do not start, remove new memory and re-nstall old one, if computer start, new memory will be a culprit.

if computer no fan "jig" and no light blink, remove all power supply cables from motherboard and connect in it's place new power supply, to exclude power supply problem.

if computer start with new power supply, old power supply will be the problem,

if computer do not start, and no joy with checking, but fan is running, including on the processor, this will indicate either, motherboard or processor died... if that is the case further testing will be required to determine which is exact cause. as in home situation there are usually no motherboard testing equipment, you need to go to more difficult path of changing the processor, checking video and haveing second computer on which you can test all of that...

replacement board for that processor on ebay cost from about $0.99 plus postage. if you need any further advice, please re-post adn if i am on line today, i will provide you with further procedure how to test your video, motherboard and processor.

if you find my advice useful, please do not hesitate to leave your comment and vote 4 for me, thanx!

Acer Aspire Sa90-lb7h desktop Will not turn on


I guess it is a power supply failure can you try and plug it directly to light without using battery remove the battery before you power it on then notice how it behave then you will know the actual problem if it power on with light then it is battery problem. if not the check the harddisk maybe it is not properly fit in. or does it show bios setting or welcome bios

If you formatted and reinstalled then you probably just need to install the drivers. You can download them from here.
