I had the same startup problem. I updated to the latest BIOS - Ver 1.43 from Ver 1.40 and it resoved the problem. For whatever strange reason Acer only offers the BIOS for download from their Europe site. Here is the link:

Samsung s3 phone wont turn on only red light stays on and a buzzing noise sounds and wont turn on need help


Shut it down by holding the power button until the screen goes black, don't tap the power off button, wait for the black screen. Then let your phone charge for a few hours (maybe over night) with power off and see if that helps.

Im sorry about your situation.

Does the computer turn on??
If the computer turns on do you hear or can you see the fan working??

If the computer turns on does it stay on or does it shut down after a few minutes??

This will help us determine what is going on.

Laptop wont boot up, black screen, has power


You didn't post the Make, Model of Laptop or the OS you are using. I'll use a Win 7 solution. Boot the Laptop, open the Control Panel, select Power Options, set to High Performance, select Change Plan Settings, set SLEEP to Never, select Change Advanced Power settings, go through the settings , set SLEEP and Hibernate to Never, Power buttons and Lid to shut down. Always shut down and unplug your laptop when not in use to prevent damage from power surges and possible Fire hazard IF the battery malfunctions. A reboot every day will reset the computer.

The lights are on screen is black


When you first turn on your computer, do you see anything on the screen? Perhaps, something in the corner of the screen telling you to press F1,F12 or something like that. If so, go in to start-up and see if it will give the option to "start with last known good configuration", if so press the # and enter, See if the computer will boot then, if not do the process over and press "start in safe mode" and if this works you probably have a virus. Please contact me here or e-mail me at cliffjones1059@yahoo.com. I will explain more>

E machine monitor turns itself off and on


The same thing happened to me today. I was just sitting in my room then i hear a click and the cpu is on it stays on for a while then cuts off. It then cuts on and off with few seconds in between. It then stays in that way cutting and off for about a minite or two and then cuts off completely. A few minutes later it starts again. Also in the time it its off it will not turn on by pressing the power button. Sometimes it completly boots up by itself and then shuts itself down. If I shut it down manually while its on it'll turn itself on immeditaly after. What's going on! Will the warranty cover it? Do I need a new computer?

Multisync LCD 1700V turns on then screen goes blank and shuts off


Does the power light stay on? If so, you have an inverter problem. If the power light goes off, you have a power supply problem.
