Acer Aspire 7004WSMi will not turn on
\015 My folks have an Acer Aspire 7004WSMi that was working great up till a few days ago. They said that they shut it down before they went to bed as per normal, but when they went to turn it on the next day it won't do anything.If you press the power button, the power light comes on but nothing else. There is no HD activity whatsoever, although the fan does come on. I've tried turning the laptop on without the battery and just the power lead and just the battery without the power lead. I've tried holding the power button for 30 seconds but still nothing.I've got a horrible feeling that the motherboard has gone but I don't see how it's happened when it was sitting off overnight.Any help would be fantastic.\015
If it's still under warranty, I'd start with Acer. If that's not an option, first I would check that the memory and HDD are seated properly. Then check the Fn+ F4(sleep mode),Fn+ F5 (display toggle)and the Fn+F6(screen blank to to reserve power) This computer has a power save technology that saves power by shutting down one or all of these devices after a period of inactivity(also known as inactivity timeout) keyboard ,HD,peripherals and video memory. I would also recommend connecting to an external monitor. But you said no HD noise so most of that would be a mute point. The good news is your still getting power somewhere. I would connect the HD to another computer and check it and go ahead an pull any of your parents data off, if possible. (hopefully they had backups) I did a little research and found quite a few problems with this model, most just after the warranty expires. If it's not the video card and I don't believe it is, and the HD turns out to be ok, then it might be the board indeed. I'd go through process of elimination. You could also try starting it up without the HD see if you get a boot screen. Then again with it in. A setting could have inadvertently been changed in the OS or BIOS. Make sure it doesn't need driver or OS updates. Crazy as it sounds, they can have all kinds of effects.Let us know how it turns out, as I sure your question will be viewed frequently by people looking for solutions to this common problem.Hope there's something here you can use and good luck. If I 'fixed ya', please rate.Thanks -jmattes
