Acer Aspire won't start

Hello I have an Acer Aspire, i'm not at home but i believe it is a model #5920-6914. It has worked perfect for the past 6 monthes i've owned it. One day after not turning it on for about 3 weeks it simply would not start. No lights, no fan, nothing. I tried running it off of a live outlet thinking maybe the battery was just dead but still nothing. The charge light does not come on but the light on the actual charger does. So it seems as if there is just no power getting to the laptop, could this be the computer's motherboard? The charger consists of two separate components, the part with the cord that goes into the wall and the rectangular black box with the green light (the green light comes on) and then the cord that plugs into the recangular box and goes into the computer. Could the problem be with this second cord running from the box to computer? Please help!!!

Iv got an acer aspire as well and experianced the same isues with the power light not comeing on when charging it.i did how ever mange to diagnoes my problem.It was the sockit that you plug the power cable into.that sockit has a very fine copper conection between it and the mother board whitch had frizaled out due to the fact i use the laptop at work so its always pluged in to mains because its on all day long.This can burn out the copper conection,I found an apliance electrician to solder a new thicker conection between the mother board and the housing you plug the powersupply in to he also strenthined the houseing it self because it was starting to crack up from all the use.Im happy to say that iv had smooth sailing ever since, pluss i didnt have to pay the outrageous fees that acer would have charged to repare it :) .I do hope this helps others with similar problems.

I had the same problem with my acer aspire 3050. I found the power cord connection to the computer is not stable. Playing around with the connection point makes the power light goes on and off. After several testing with the different points inside, I decided that the loose end is the touch point for the central pin of the power cord. Then I made the pin sticking out 1mm and plug it in. Here it works! power comes back stable!.

SOURCE: Acer Aspire won't start

There is one common flaw with most all laptops. The socket plug for the power cord is connected to the motherboard. When you plug the power cord into this socket it applies pressure or weight on the socket inside the computer. It sounds as if your charge cord is working. Moving the computer around while it is plugged in can cause even more stress on the plug socket.

Try this...but be careful...using a small item such as a toothpick or other non-metalic item...push up and down on the plug socket. If it moves around this is not normal and probably the cause of your problem.

I fixed my laptop by soldering the contacts of the socket back down to the board. I don't suggest doing this yourself unless you know how to take a laptop apart. Check with your local computer repair shop and have them give you an estimate to either fix by reconnecting or replacing the motherboard. Hope this helps. Thanks!

Hello !

Since you have a connection to the Internet, you can download the driver.

Here's the HP Website (copy / paste into your browser) - start by selecting "Download drivers ..." and entering your printer's model number.

Ok i have had my acer aspire 5315-2326 for a year


try downloading the compatible acer aspire webcam software for your laptop. My laptop is also acer. It is aspire 4730z and it works perfectly fine. I think the software you are using is not compatible with your laptop.

Also most aspire models have lesser durability webcams. It gets really annoying when webcams of aspire won't work. I completely understand your situation.

Just follow my instruction and it will work perfectly fine.

Is it possible that you rotated the camera past its 225 degree maximum and damaged it? Just curious. There are several other camera types installed on the same model. It might be an idea to verify that. Also XP or Vista drivers ? Just a few questions. Best
