Hello, I need help. my acer laptop. It wont boot up. I tried the reset (HOLD POWER BTTTON FOR 30 SEC w/ NO BATT AND NO POWER) for hours. it still wont turn on. when its plugged in, the battery led light turns on. I press the ON button, the num lock light blinks once, the cd/dvd/drive lights up and the fan starts. HOWEVER I hear a clicking sound.. My Laptop wont turn on!. whats wrong? JA..... : (
If you really followed the power drain procedure to the letter, I can't see anything else because the fan is running, you are not getting any hardware, HD error messages. It looks to me as if it's booting. Even a virus would not give you a blackscreen.
You may try one last power drain procedure:
1. Remove the ram sticks (Clean with a soft lint free cloth while they are out)
2. Remove the power cord and battery
3. Hold the power button for 58 seconds
4. Replace everything.
Sorry again, for I know how frustrating it can be.
