Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

My 8.9 inch Acer Aspire One does not boot up any longer. The PC power LED comes on, two LED's flash on for a second and then nothing. The monitor does not come on, the harddrive doesn't seem to be running. What could be the problem? The computer is only 8 months old.


Answers :

Try unplugging the A/C power adapter then remove the battery. Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds, then re-install battery and plug in A/C power adapter. This often fixes the problem on most laptops and netbooks.
I've seen this issue many times on those models, usually means the mobo is toast. Most units are covered by manufactures warranty of a year. Should have Acer replace it for ya but usually takes 2-3 weeks since you gotta send it to their repair depot. Good luck, Acer's customer service aren't usually fun to deal with.
