My acer aspire x3400 isn't working. When I press the power button the normal blue light does not come on at all there is no sound no display but I can hear the fans and disk moving. I Tried unplugging and holding button for 30 sec with no help. I am still able to "turn off" the computer by holding power button but that is it. Please help.

I'm having the exact same problem with my Acer Aspire X3400 desktops. I couldn't describe it any better. It's dead but the fans come on when I push the power. AND I have 4 more of these things and 1 other one game me a scare the other day when it did the same thing. Luckily with that one I was able to unplug it and retry several times until it finally came back on. The Acer support says it's a hardware issue and they want me to send it in. But based on our shared experience it seems there is something a little more "common" about this problem. Let me know if you figure out any other solutions or definite reasons for this problem. Note: The problem only occurred after we did a shutdown and then tried to turn it back on via the power button. We have never had any issues just rebooting them prior to this. It was just unlucky that we happened to shut it down one day not knowing it wouldn't power back up.

    We finally got it working. We had to plug in the unit, and then unplug it, and then hold the power button down for 15 seconds. We then saw a flicker of light come and go on the start button. Then we plugged it back in, and it started up just fine. So we now have a working PC again

    Well, the problem came back. And again we were able to get it working by the above technique, but now it's happened yet again and now we can't get it working. Sending it back for warranty fix at this point.

Acer x3400 wont start up

Remove the Power Cord and then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in and press the power button. If it reboots you had a Static Charge Buildup and released it by holding the power button for 30 seconds.

When you press the power button do you hear the fan running, disk drives running, cd drive clicks once, anything on the lcd screen? If not I would think your Power Supply is bad and needs to be replaced.

It's either the Power Supply or Motherboard.

Where is the wireless button located on the Acer Aspire 5600, how do I turn it on

If there isn't a small button on your laptop, then see if any button on your laptop has a "blue-ish" colored icon that might be Wireless. Pressing FN and that button should activate it.

Make sure the cable to the PC is secure by tightening the screws on each plug. If the problem still exists then you need to take it back to the shop where you bought it from. It could be a fault graphics card or connector.

Is the HDMI on the Acer Aspire X3400 input and output?

The HDMI ports on laptops and desktops are output only. This means that if you would like to use your computer's monitor to display something from a game system (ie, a PS3, 360) or a TV box, such as DirecTV, you will need additional supplies, such as a TV tuner.
