Having problems with your Acer Aspire 1640Z Notebook ?

Acer aspire 1640 dead - no power, no lights

\015 I have just returned from a week's holiday to find my laptop will not power up. I have taken the battery out and put it back in but no power even though it's connected to the mains. It was working ok when I left - however i think I may have left it on standby and then unplugged it which would have run the battery down. Is this a problem with the battery? Or more serious? How can I find out? There is no sign of life in it whatsoever.\015

Answers :

I have the same problem. NO POWER, NO LIGHT and when i hold the poer button with the battery inserter i hear the fan TRYING to spin, but no luck on powering on. tried the above solution, and no luck with that either. Is there anyone with a problem like mine out there who solved the problem? If there is, please post the solution, so i'll be sure that the MB is ok.
Thank you
When you connect the mains adapter, does the charge/power LED light up?
\015\012Try removing the battery and power it up with the mains adapter.
\015\012If it powers up then insert the battery whilst the laptop is running.
\015\012Try reseating the RAM modules.
