[[ACER WONT TURN ON]]

HELP! My Acer Travelmate 2300 previously had a faulty power socket, the male pin inside came loose when charging and sparked. the laptop remained on and i took out the AC cable

after a while the laptop used all the batterys power and died. after that i brought a brand new power socket and soldered it on.

however

now that ive soldered the new socket on, the laptop STILL wont turn on. it shows that power is running through the system because an amber light shows when the battery is plugged in, when it is charging.

but it wont turn on when i press the power button.

has anyone got any suggestions..?

You might of fried the whole motherboard when it sparked. Check if there is a fuse. Bridge the gap, and it should turn on. If not PULL THE PLUG.its something else that went wrong.If you don't, it smells really bad. Ive learn't from experience...

POWER DEAD using different adapter(universal) after 2 days.


Sounds like you killed the motherboard. Find a local repair shop or someone on craigslist who will diagnose it for free. Wait while they do it, should only take 5-10 minutes to confirm your worst fears.
