Question about Acer Aspire 3004WLCi Notebook
Got a problem that the laptop does not power up and no LEDs light up when power connected to laptop. Stripped the thing down and it worked ok for 1 week, but now gone completely dead .. and I'm thinking that this could be a thermal problem and that either the fan is now dead or processor is overheated. I've got a question on the fan and a question on the processor :-
(1) Would a faulty fan cause the PC not to power up ? .. do the fans fail often ? ... and what are the chances of getting a replacement fan ?
(2) Would a swapout for another sempron processor help in any way ?
Many thanks for any help
The fans for most laptops are 2 stage. And again most laptops have a thermal parameter that they operate in. When processors overheat they will shut down.
If the processor is gone, or going, you should still have a light on showing the either condition of battery or elect. supplied.
I was working on a Toshiba that had "ISSUES". Thermal problem caused by fan, fan would go to high speed for 2 sec. when first turned on then stay on low. The unit would not boot, black screen etc, until I removed and reseated the processor. Then everything would be OK for a week then start all over again.
I ended up replacing the power supply brick, processor, heatsink and fan.
