1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
5. The power button could be bad.
6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

My acer aspire one wont turn on. the screan doesnt got switched on. pls help?


Does the power light comes on? Try a power drain. Disconnect the adapter, remove the battery, press and hold down the power button for 10 seconds. Put the battery back and the adapter and try to turn it on. Still no display? Take it to an Acer repair center.

The power button doesnt seem to be working


It sounds like a short in the button itself. If you have a soldering gun, take it apart and resolder the connection. This is typical for Acer laptops.
It's either the button itself or the jack where the power supply plugs in. It's not real difficult.

Acer aspire 3003lc no power


Hi there,

What you're describing is a problem with the Memory Module or FSB. Unfortunately, the only way is to get it tested by a qualified engineer and replaced.

Is it still under Acer warranty (usually 12 months)? If so, contact them and they'll repair it, if not, I can only suggest you shop around for a respectable, but cheaper engineer.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

Function F6 works only sometimes to blackout screen on acer aspire 5315


I just came here looking for a solution to the same problem. I have an Aspire 1800 which has a front panel of buttons for the Arcade mode. Basically i just wiped all the buttons again resonably vigiously as i was pissed off and low and behold the FnF6 works again. I tried this after i read another artical suggesting the removal of the touchpad driver. so obviously something is still depressed much like a sticky key which basically switches the screen immediatly back on as i had a flicker at least when i did FnF6. Hope this helps..

Bluetooth


If you have a bluetooth button at the front it doesnt mean its inbuilt, most Acer laptops don't have it although the button is there.
assuming you have set up the bluetooth correctly
Your model does list it has inbuilt but, if it is the light should flicker, you should also check the latest driver

Acer Aspire 5520


check if dvd drive will eject if not
if it doesnt - try another socket
if still gets nothing - change fuse in plug
if same - try another power adapter (preferably from same manufacturer and model)
If still doesnt get power try get new power supply unit from repair shop or get quote for cost to fix
