Question about Acer Extensa 5630-6806 Notebook
Hi there, my acer extensa 5630ez won’t turn on.
Only by removing the battery, power supply and cmos battery it turns on with only the power supply.
However when it is on state and add the cmos battery, turning off by power button it stays off, only when the cmos battery is removed it starts directly when the power supply are plugged.
Can you give a location of R138?
Is it on the easy side? E.q. the side of the motherboard wich is accessible by removing the bottom plate? I see Q24, located close to CPU. If possible, post a picture of R138, with some components visible.

You would need to replace the cmos battery first to make sure it's not a cmos battery issue. I dont care if you think it's brand new just go get another one. Its been known that Acer notebooks are picky with certain cmos batteries or atleast half dead ones and will not turn on if they are.
Also make sure your ram is poperly seated because that may me another reason why the notebook will not power on with what it needs to work with.

Thanks a lot mrxx74, your solution worked perfectly.
But how on earth did you find that R138 was guilty ? It's amazing !
I found many explanations to access the motherboard here :
Thanks again for having saved my laptop's life.

Hi i've tried mr.xx74 solution and in the first few days it went well, it turned on with no problems, the only thing ive noticied is that the power button LED didn't turn on green, but for me it was no problem. But suddenly it stopped, it won't turn on again and i don't know why, above is mentioned problems with the CMOS battery...can it be the problem?
Many thanks in advance

If it were the RAM I would expect three quick beeps...
since I didn't hear anything at all I would suspect the CPU didn't come up at all....
Then again the battery doesn't normally unhook the CPU.....
