One technique that often works in this case is to reset the Power management circuits:
Remove the power plug, and any batteries, and leave for 20 seconds. Plug in the power lead, and hold down the power button for several seconds (until the power/sleep light flashes on some macs). Try booting up the computer again.

When I try to power up my acer aspire M1201 the power button isn't responding

Check to make sure that power is reaching the power supply of your unit. If it is and still does not work, then the issue is with the supply that needs replacement. Common malady.

My Scan Snap won't scan. The Scan light just blinks and nothing happens.

My Scansnap was being used through a USB powered hub.

This worked....Shutdown EVERYTHING and unplug computer from your powerstrip for 10 seconds (or just turn off your powerstrip for 10 seconds) It resets the BUS power. This solved why almost all of my USB devices stopped working or were behaving badly.

COMPAQ Presario v6000 dead, Period

Hi there.
Remove the battery and try it on AC power only, if it boots up turn it back off and put the battery back in again and power it up again, if it boots up, the cause will have a small surge from the power strip caused by the thunder storm.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!
