Hello,

My Acer laptop won't start up. I had the same problem I've already seen posted on some thread. Basically the power button lights up, the fan works briefly and then stops. The Acer displays only a black screen.

I fixed it by removing the memory sticks and battery and then holding down power for 58 seconds but now it's broken in exactly the same way.

Does this mean my laptop is broken for good?
I tried doing this again but it doesn't work now....

Thanks! I tried the process again a few times and it finally worked. The only thing is my laptop is way slower now than it ever was... =(

May be the RAM is not good! Did you have any spare RAM?
If so then i suggest you to do with that and restart your pc!
