Thank you
Hi,

Did you get your motherboard's brand name (like Acer) when you switch on your laptop, If yes, you'll see the initial display screen to get into the BIOS at the bottom of your screen.

Go to the BIOS --> Make sure hard disk is detected in the BIOS -- > Set your first boot device as "Hard disk" --> Save the settings and exit from the BIOS.

Good Luck!

Thank you, bionik 1

Hello,

Yes sometimes motherboards crashes due to overheating. In these cases the only thing to do is change the motherboard. Thank you anyway for your feedback. Good luck for the future.

Regards.
Remove power adapter and battery for 6 hours (give it lots of time). Put the battery back in. Hit the power button. In some cases, the 30-45 seconds isn't enough to discharge the static properly, so it just needs longer. Mines worked after a few hours of discharging. Saved $250.00 in repair fees!
I have no idea how this works, but it did. I detatched the power cable and took out the battery. Tap 3 (well about 6 times) around bottom of the unit. Put the battery back in, connected the cable. Switched it on.......started up perfectly
