first of all as a static test I would remove the battery and power cable then hold the power button down for about 30 seconds.

insert the battery and try turning it on now.

Hi,

This problem happens bcoz of current fluctuation, hope my few steps help you solve this problem.

first you need to remove battery. then hold power button for 30 sec to 1min.
then connect power cord then press power button. hope it will works.

if Not.

then make sure your power cord is in working condition, if it works fine then repeat the steps as I said, this time you need to hold power button for 2 min or more, Note :- there should not be any power supply when you are doing these steps.

thanks & regards

It could be that the laptop is out of juice and your power adapter is totaled. try getting a universal power supply is your cheapest option. if not then the motherboard is finished.
battery still has power and power supply still works

then it sounds like a hardware issue. best thing to do is to send it back to manufacturer.

Hi
I study A+ Hardware & If ya u do open ya laptop make sure you have an Anti-Static mat & put ya laptop on top of it & have got a wrist strap on and place the clip from the mat on an unpainted bit of ya laptop. Its the Amps is what will kill ya otherwise. Dont wear the Wrist strap if removing or touching ya Power Supply in the laptop. U will definetaly die from the shock. If u dont have none of them & u do open ya laptop, all it takes is for u to touch it and u shock the motherboard, RAM, Graphics Card etc with ya finger, well there might go ya hardware. So beware if ya do.

Alternatively you could leave the power supply in to earth the laptop as the average home user doesnt have anti-stat equipment. as for the A+ Student. die from shock? try a UK university.

Possible reason 1: your Acer might be going into 'Standby' mode and not coming out of it, or maybe the OS is crashing. Check the 'Power Options Properties' in the 'Display Properties > Screensaver > Power > Power Options panel'.

Possible reason 2: the capacitor has shorted in the main board. Try to look for any buldging capacitor and change it.
