It won't power up.

I purchased a used Acer aspire 5552 without a charger. Purchased replacement charger. Plugged it in turned it on, have to reset Windows. I turned it off so I could reboot and now when I hit the power button the blue light on the power button comes on, I hear the laptop start (fans and drives) then it just shuts down. I was hoping after a good charge it would start but it still wont. So I looked and you guys say if it charges and won't start probably a battery, but it still won't turn on even when plugged into the power adapter. So help please!!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

The battery seems to have a problem. Try changing to another battery or If your warranty is still active try using it.

Try removing the power adapter and the battery and holding the power button for 10 seconds. Wait 30 seconds and then put the battery back in and see if it boots. Some HP laptops use this procedure as a hard reboot. If this doesn't work, try re-seating the RAM in your laptop.

Anthony Kouttron's suggestion usually works in cases like this. You might try leaving it plugged in overnight if it doesn't work immediately after trying it.


I have an old Acer Aspire 5630 with all my email on it. A few days ago it stopped starting, when I pushed the power button it "started" 1 second and then stopped. Because the battery is as old as the laptop the power supply is always on.

So I followed Anthony's procedure and it worked!! Thanks a lot!
