Acer 5630 wont turn on

Hi guys, wonder if you can help.

My friends got an Acer 5630 and it wont power on. When you try and turn it on the power light comes on and it sounds for a couple of seconds as though it is going to load, but doesn't. The power light remains on, as does the battery light at the front of the laptop. When you initially turn it on and it sounds like it is going to load, the loading light doesn't flash, however the loading light on the dvd rom drive flashes and then goes out. I've tried to turn it on with just the battery in (both the original and mine, I have the same laptop) and not connected to the mains, i've tried with the battery out and connected to the mains and i've tried with the battery in and connected to the mains, none of which works. There is a chance that there may be a cd in the dvd drive but i have the same laptop and have never had an issue. Can anyone help?

    If the laptop is under manufacturer warranty, I recommend you take it to the nearest service center. There is a very good chance that the system board needs replacing.

    Hope this helps :) Kindly leave a rating. Thanks..

Switch on my acer 5630 and the power light comes on and the fan kicks in for a couple of seconds and then shuts off. There is no output/no bios/ nothing like the machine has died? help please

It sounds like it has overheated and the cut-out is turning it off before it will start. Depending how ow the machine has become it can take a while for it to restart. My worst case for overheating was a couple of hours before the machine would start.
Please let me know how you get on.

Screen wont come on

no "lock" button but there is a function button to switch the primary monitor from the built in one to an external one. on the lower left han side of the keyboard there is a key labled "function" hold that down and look along the top row of buttons (f keys) one of them has a green or blue picture of two monitors, with the power turned on try holding the function bution and the f key and see if it comes back on. also there is a brightness key as well make sure it is all the way up.

Not to discourage you but I just sent back 4 of these same models to acer for warranty for the exact same problem. All four of them however did work with an external monitor.

Cam nt workin

it is not being used, this is a common fault of the Orbicam, with no answers or newer drivers from Acer, the belo works for me as i have the same problem along with many others.

open up the cam software as normal, then turn your camera to face the back of your notebook, turn it back again and keep clicking the camera start button and eventually it will come on.

Laptop Dead, Wont power up

This sounds like a tricky one. If you plug everything in and turn it on at the mains do any lights on the laptop come on? Does it do anything at all when you turn it on?
If you get back to me I can proceed to help you further.
Good luck!
