Question about Acer Aspire 5920-6727 Notebook

1 Answer

I'm a student training to be a tech. Today I'm working on an Acer Aspire 5920 series and it's not taking power at all. No LEDs flash...nothing. While troubleshooting it I noticed an audible *popping* sound. Sounded kind of like electricity arcing. I unplugged the power from the mobo and the arc stopped. So this lead me to believe that the mobo has gone bad. Are there any other problems that could cause this?

The DC jack, where you plug the power adapter cable, might be loose or defective, & needs to be either re-soldered or replaced.
In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard taken out. Also, the motherboard needs to be checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether.

Check if your hard rive indicator light is flashing (has disc shape icon or can shape icon next to it). If it is then put in your windows disc and do a startup repair. Make sure it is booting from the disc drive first. if it isnt flashing then you may have a dead hard drive. Try taking the hard drive out and putting it back in.

Acer Aspire 7520 turns off and on repeatedly


Mine does this but what I found was that if you hold the power button down for about 10 seconds when you are turning it on, it works.
