Hi,

Laptop motherboards are replaceable though a bit tricky putting the laptop back together.

Options would include:
1. getting in touch with Acer Australia, email>customer.service@acer.com.au, Phone: 02 8762 3000, 02 8762 3264; Fax: 02 9764 2368; Address: 5 Figtree Drive, Australia Square, Homebush Bay NSW 2127;
2. look for an online supplier such as Notebook Solutions. They do exchange repair;
3. buy a new board from eBay such as this one here;
4. send in your laptop for repair like here.

Cost probably looking at anywhere from a little less than 200 to a little more than 300 Aus$ excluding shipping.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

hi gopal,

actually I have no idea about the price of acer laptop motherboard but when we have HP laptop problem and change the board, It cost us almost P 18,000.00 about 419USD.

Not included the charge fee.

So in Acer, more or less like that.

Flashing bios


Unfortunately there aren't many options here. The Bios is corrupt so it cannot load a CD or a floppy disc. The normal options are;

Replace the motherboard. Although with a laptop, this is problably going to be costly.

Replace the Bios chip itself.

Send the bios chip to someone with the tools to flash the bios.


I'd contact Acer and see what they say about the whole thing first. If it is too costly then look at other options.

Laptop wont take a charge


There are two ways ,first you will have to replace the whole motherboard which is not cheap ,the second way would be to buy the power jack seperate from a place like Ebay and then try to solder it onto the motherboard which is not an easy thing to do as you need a special soldering gun.
The best option is to take it to an authorised Acer support center and ask for a quote.

Good Luck

Acer laptop (aspire 5570z series) won't charge/turn on


I have the same piece a junk,the poor design of the power conector allows the barely soldered center pin to come out with the charging conector,mine lasted about a year,it was tight when it was new, have always been very careful with it and it still broke ,what a joke ,If you pull the pin out of the conector slightly then put it in slowly until you see the charge light go on in front of the computer,it wil charge

Acer Aspire 5101 Laptop, powering but nothing else


If it won't go past the login screen, you should try restoring it from CD first, and then replacing the hard drive if that doesn't work. I don't have all the details, but from what you describe I don't agree with the motherboard diagnosis.
