Hello,
I have an acer aspire 721 here. Theres no poeer getting to it at all. Even tried a different cord. No charging light is present... when i press the on button... no lights... no fan.. no nothing....
Opened it up. There appears to be no physical damage to the board. Lots of dust tho.
The power socket is not loose. Very secured to the board.

What should i try first?

Hello dashi,

Since you said that everything with the power supply unit of your laptop was OK, then I would recommend you pull out the drive from your laptop and to try to connect it as an external via cable SATA-USB on another PC. If it doesn't power up there, it might have got mechanically broken and needs to be replaced.
Please, come and share the result of the test afterwards.

Hope this helps you.
I will give it a try. But wouldnt i still be getting atleast a charging light or fan on even if the HDD was damage?

It depends. I don't know what your motherboard is and how is everything setup.
Please, tell me what happened with the connection.
Good luck.

Hi,

I'm glad your drive is working on another PC and it's not damaged. Since the problem is with the MoBo I suggest you to contact a professional pc company which is specialized in computer repair to do the change.
While working the hard drive on another computer make sure you have a backup of all of your data on the other PC along with s bootable .iso file of Windows because you'll need it. No matter USB or CD.
After the new mother board is installed, you'll have to make a fresh install of Windows for it to bo able to start normally, recognizing the components of your system.

Good luck.
