Re: help no power
Make sure the wide 24-pin connector cable is firmly plugged into the motherboard. Then short the Power pins on the motherboard with an insulated flat-bladed screwdriver. If the computer powers up then your fron panel power switch needs replacing.
This is a typically problem when you don't have the motherboard proerly seated. Some part of the board must be touching the metal contacts when you screw down the board to the case which causes a short. Try to reseat the motherboard and also make sure you're using washers in between where you screw down the motherboard to the case. That should fix your issue (Unless there's something wrong with the motherboard all-together).

first thing you need to figure out is is it a 20pin connection motherboard or 24 pin connection is it a high horsepower gaming rig or a web surfing machine most PSU's are an ATX form factor got NEWEGG.COM they have quite the selection of power supplies.. hope this helps
Hi, have you installed everything, I know its the obvious thing but I have bult hundreds of PCs and its always the smallest thing that catches you out!. Go back and double check your connections, even removing every component and starting again is a good idea sometimes. Good luck. (there is no fuse)
the case isnt amd athlon 2100 xp, thats the processor, the case is either a atx or micro atx case, so refer back to the case and find out if it is a atx case or a micro atx case, then find a micro atx or atx motherboard so you dont have to replace all of your components
There are a host of things that could cause this. The first thing to check is to mak sure you have the proper memory setup for your motherboard. Often these days you need to install memory in pairs for the board to boot. Refer to your motherboard manual and make sure the memory you have installed is right fro your board and that you have it installed in the right slots. If you do and it still doesn't work, please reply with your motherboard, CPU and memory specifications so I can look into this further.
Make sure the speakers are powered , if they have and AC adaptor: the volume on the speakers is turned up so that it's audible. if no power , no amplification.
Here are a few things that you can check to make sure sound is even turned on and drivers are installed:
go to your controll panel, click on system, select the hardware tab at the top, then select device manager.
scroll down to the section labeled "sound video and game controllers" click on the + to expand if neccessary.
if you see a yellow eclamation point ! next to your sound devices' listing , the software (driver) is either not present or corrupt which will cause the speakers not to work. If this is the case , you will need to navigate to Acers' website and download and install the proper drivers for your computer.
check these things and post here again, ill help you with the download process if need be.
Hi, one quick thing you can check is to see if the cable running from the power switch is plugged onto the right pins on the motherboard, it will most likerly say (pwr btn) next to the pins or something like that, it may also need to be a certain way round.Let me know what the outcome is if no good we can try something else. hope this has helped. Thanks
