Unable to boot my cmputer. it stuck up with the red and green light on


When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problemis with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and takenote of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

I reset my surge protector and the computer wont power up. i think i need a new power supply. the power cord is working fine. Please let me know where i can find a power supply for the aspire...


The Acer Aspire L100 is a desktop computer powered by a special DC adapter and power cable. The computer's motherboard incorporates a fuse designed to prevent any power surges from damaging the computer. If the fuse burns out due to a power surge or for any other reason, the computer will no longer function. You can check the motherboard fuse for damage yourself, then take it to a trained technician for replacement if needed

Shut down the Acer Aspire L100 and turn the tower around.

Press the "On/Off" button on the front of the tower. If the computer will not boot and the fan does not turn on, the fuse may be burned out.

Unplug the power cord from the rear of the tower

Turn the tower on its side and remove the Phillips-head screws connecting the back panel to the Aspire L100's cabinet.

Pull out the motherboard assembly gently from the back of the cabinet. The internal fuse is located on the motherboard behind the DC power jack, which is to the right of the monitor jack

Let me know if this helped..

    My acer laptop wont turn in it just acts like there is no batterry in it and no power cord plugged in


    Hello.

    The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

    Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

    If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

    The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.

    If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

    Hope this helps.

    WE HAVE JUST HAD A LIGHTENING STRIKE AND ALL POWER IN THE HOUSE WENT OFF WHILST MY ASPIRE E 700 WAS POWERED AFTER THE POWER CAME BACK POWER LIGHT WAS LIT BUT COMPUTER WONT START UP WITH START SWICH


    Unplug everything from the laptop, remove the battery and let it sit for 5 minutes. Replace the battery only, not the power brick and see if it will boot.
    Does the power brick have a solid green light? Flashing? Red?
    If it will not boot off the battery or power brick it may be fried.

    My Acer Aspire L100 PC Desktop won't start.. when i press power button it only flash LED light jus one time but no HDD sound or CDROM working sound. only CPU fan works thas bout it...Any help? pls


    Do you see anything on the screen?

    Try the following things:
    1. Try starting the computer with only the battery
    2. Remove the battery and try booting with only the power adapter
    3. Try removing and replacing your memory
    Could be a bad power supply or bad battery. After you try the above steps, report your results.

    Acer Aspire T690 will not post. When powered on no video


    Hi,
    You need to remove The Side-Panel. ( Power Lead out )
    locate A small round Button Cell Battery.
    As big as a 1p or a Cent Piece. ( Usually silver )
    carefully prise the Battery Out For Between 10-15 Seconds, And Replace it. replace the power cable. switch on the computer, the bios has now been reset to it,s factory default settings.
    if you are prompted to set date/time enter bios ( F2-del Or esc ) dependant On Bios request.
    This Should cure your Problems.

    Hi,

    If you are referring to the files inside the hard drive, then as long as it is not defective, it will last a very long time. Most hard disks can retain data indefinitely .

    As to your concern with the laptop's charger/power supply jack, it is very possible that the connector simply lost its connection inside the motherboard. This could be easily remedied by re-soldering the two (2) pins of the said jack. What might be a challenge is the opening of the laptop to expose the underbelly of the motherboard.

    Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

    Good luck and kind regards.

    Thank you for using FixYa.

    I cannot switch on my Acer travelmate 283XC. The battery went flat and I have now plugged it in the wall but when I press the power button nothing happens...


    Try this; Disconnect from the AC outlet rmove the dc plug from the jack. Remove the Battery and wait for 5 mins and plug in the AC? DC adaptor without the battery. If the Laptop runs, then wait for the Windows to totally boot up and while running try to put back the battery and observe if it still charges. If not then try to replace the battery with a new one.


    hope this helps.
