Having problems with your Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook ?

Aspire 3004, does not start up, on pressing start

\015 Aspire 3004, had coke spilt into it!! (Autistic daughter), would not start up. On mains power, front LED comes on, when on button pressed all lights go out, come back on about 5 seconds later. Took it apart cleaned all visible contaminated areas, Tried restarting on battery, all LED's came on fan started, then died, assumed battery was dead so tried again on mains power, still does not start up, on pressing start button, power LED flashes 8/9 times. Any help please\015

Answers :

This is not the answer you want to hear. Unfortunately for you, your daughter has ruined your laptop. You may still be able to salvage your data, assuming your hard drive is still good after you have turned it on and off a few dozen times to no avail.

Nearly everything is located on or solder connected to you motherboard in a laptop.

If you decide to replace the motherboard, all those external connections have to be re-soldered.

1) A liquid (coke) spill on a laptop shorts the motherboard.

2) Any shorts on a motherboard have to be traced using a multimeter and must be done by a qualified technician.

3) For what it is going to cost to repair your Acer laptop, you can buy a new Toshiba laptop at Best Buy or online.

I am sorry, but this is not the answer you were hoping for. The reality is, this is not something that you are going to be able to fix.
