I have an Acer Aspire 5517 laptop, been using it for 4 years now. It has been 4 months since it broke and now it's only today I'm trying to ask help.

I try to turn my laptop on (with power adapter as my power source, no battery). Fan starts but stops around 5 seconds, no boot up (black screen, no BIOS whatsoever happening on the monitor), the power button lights up as if it's working.

I already tried re-seating the RAM chips (one 1gb, one 2gb total of 3gb), those "hold the power button for at least a minute" stuff and up until this point, nothing seems to be working. I tried to check it up with local computer specialists around here and told me it might be an issue with the video/graphics card.

I hope someone knows a quick fix, or someone tells me a different diagnostic so I could suggest them to the specialists here. Thanks to this community.

Kudos!
