Do you have an Acer laptop that won’t turn on at all, or at least from time to time?
No matter how many times you push the power button, the laptop does not power up…
You can leave the computer and come back to it hours later, only to find that it still won’t start up. Perhaps you notice a blinking, amber-colored light every time you press that infuriating power button. Have no fear, the answer (hopefully) to your long-awaited solution is here…
1.) Make sure your battery isn’t completely dead. As in–all the way dead, to where it can never charge again. Assuming your battery still works, continue on…
3.) Next, unplug the power adapter from the wall AND from the computer .When your Acer laptop doesn’t power up the problem could be worsened by leaving it plugged in.
4.) Now that the battery and adapter have been disconnected from the computer, you can move onto the solution. Hold down the power button for 45 seconds. Next, Press the power button numerous times for at least 45 more seconds (keep pressing the button during the entire time period).
5.) Allow the laptop to sit for 20 minutes at least (sometimes it will power on immediately after performing #4, but in worse cases this is encouraged)
6.) After the “waiting” period has ended, connect the battery and adapter to the computer. Turn it on and all should be good.
Your Acer laptop should now turn on! Static buildup is a big problem in various Acer computers, which causes the computers to not turn on. The process highlighted above helps to discharge static electricity by eliminating the remaining amount of electricity stored in the laptop (capacitors).
