Acer Aspire Wont turn on

When I press the power button on my machine, the chargingLED turns on and stays solid, but when I press the power button, the blue led turns on then straight off again. If I hold the power button down the blue LED flashes consistently. Does anyone know what is happening ?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Could be happening lots of things, but first I need to know:

-Was the laptop working properly and then shutdowns while working?? or you shut it down correctly and later it wont power up????

-The battery was working fine??

-Has you try another power cord??


yeah it was working perfectly fine . I just shut it down for bed then tried using it the next after noon and nothing. The battery was accepting charge and functioning correctly and I recently got a new power cable today, that's what prompted me to write this

So, as I said before it could be a lot of things and it looks like it might be complicated.

- First, you need to disassembly your laptop, you could do it by following this guide for battery replacement: guide.

- Check if the motherboard if contaminated by dirt and if so clean it up, if the problem persist...

- Try powering up your laptop with the battery disconnected, in order of determine if your battery is in bad shape.

- If the problem continues, you´ll need to test with a multi-meter if you have voltage in the board, and what happens with that voltage when you press the power button. It could be a component in the main-board that is creating a short once it gets voltage.

right I can confirm that the battery is holding charges cause the blinking still happens when I remove the power cable. And it does the same thing when the battery is disconnected with the ac adapter still in. Where would be the best place to start from?


Quick Update. The Wifi card was shorting the computer out I have since remove it and the laptop powers on the hard drive spun up and then parked but I think that's cause I took out the fan but im not sure ill reassemble and update again


Computer powers up, no fan activity but the hard disk spins up. No output to the inbuilt screen and no output to an external one either


Did you try cleaning up the RAM memory with an eraser? I also recommend that you do all this test with the hard-drive disconnected (it could get damaged with the in and out of power).

I can´t remember if that model has an 3V battery inside for saving the hour/date and Bios config. Look for it if you found it make a little short between the + and -, to reset Bios by Default


How do I make it a little short
