It sounds to me that there might be a lose connection somewhere. The first thing to do is make sure that all cables are securely fastened.

When you say that your computer won't start when you put the cover back on and lay it on it's side does it respond at all when you hit the power button? Lights, anything displayed on the monitor, fan noise, etc.? Also when you leave the cover off is the computer laid on it's side like when the cover is on? does it work laying on it's side with the cover off?

Where is the lid switch on an acer aspire5349 laptop


Lid Close Switches of the post, and spring type, are usually mounted close to the Right Hinge. (Cabling goes up through the Left Hinge)

Magnetic Lid switches are usually mounted in with the Touchpad, and it's mounting bracket.

Looking at the Service Manual came to no avail.

Believe this is where it's located, Cory; or at least how to bypass it,

Service Manual,

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-acer

Go to the 'paragraph' that starts with Aspire 1200. (1200 in Blue)
Drop down to the 7th line. (5330 in Blue)
Scroll across, click on the blue -> 5340

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on the file name (5340), it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up.

Fisher Pakel dish drawer sends F1 alarm flashing. It usually happens when there is a drop or change in water pressure. Have had 3 repairs on this disappointing product. Only repair person for Fisher...


F1 is a flood fault ir happens when the machine detects water on the base of the unit, to clear this fault you can remove the bottom draw and use a towel to clean up the water this should clear the fault, But usually there is only water on the base if the lid is not closing properly, this can happen due to you putting long utensils in and the lid cannot pull down or you have faulty lid actuators witch is probably the case and they wont pull the lid down correctly, So if the lid wont come down properly water splashes over the top and floods the base. :)

Computer wont start acer aspire L-100


CPU overheated? When you cool it down it will start. You can check whether there are lots of dust on the CPU fan and the chase of the machine, they might block the air flow and overheat the CPU.

Sounds like your PC is diplaying out of your monitors range. Try pressing f8 while booting up to get safe mode. then turn down the video resolution to display what your monitor can handle. Good Luck.
