Hi\015\012\015\012often its a mainboard issue, what you can attempt is reinserting the memory modules on the laptop.\015\012\015\012first are you in or out of warranty? \015\012\015\012if you are outside of warranty then go ahead and follow the instructions below, if you are in warranty contact your dealer or acer for warranty service.\015\012\015\012first disconnect the battery and ac power.\015\012Turn the laptop around, on the bottom, there is a cover for the memory modules, or then there might be one big cover.\015\012\015\012unscrew the screws from the memory cover or from the cover.\015\012\015\012the memory cover is the one with a picture of a chip or more like a logo/icon of a chip.\015\012\015\012Inside you will find 1-2 memory modules \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012take them both out of the unit so that there is no memory inside.\015\012\015\012turn\015\012the laptop over and plug it in to the power, turn it on, it will beep\015\012or it will just be blank, let it be blank for a moment and then unplug,\015\012\015\012\015\012now plug in the other memory module into the other slot, then\015\012turn it over again and plug it in, turn it on, if the laptop works now,\015\012then the problem is solved if it is not, then unplug, turn it over,\015\012remove the memory and place it on the other slot. then turn over and\015\012turn on / plug in.\015\012\015\012if the laptop is still not working then take\015\012out the current memory module and test it with the other one if you had\015\012two.(repeat the same process you did with the first one)\015\012\015\012if the\015\012machine is still dead, it is very likely a hardware failure, possibly\015\012the video adapter or the main board has failed. (video adapter is build\015\012into the mainboard in most of these models) if you really are outside of warranty and this has not helped, the replacement of the mainboard costs around 200-500 euro (its going to cost around 500 usd) for the part, exluding TAX and shipping + replacement service. that is the official price of the part from http://www.zandparts.com/acer/index.php?cPath=40886_40887_40929_41356_61950 the official acer parts distributor. \015\012\015\012a local repairer or a acer service center may be able to obtain the\015\012mainboard at a lower price than what is offered to the general public.\015\012\015\012it\015\012is not worth the repair most likely, see if you can get someone to look\015\012at the laptop and take it apart and see if there is anything that can\015\012be done to save it.\015\012\015\012good luck.

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
