Answers :

I actually contacted Acer using email and they sent me a solution in about one day. Here's the exact quote.

Try the steps below for a power reset, to eliminate a hardware problem with your notebook:

1. Disconnect the AC adapter from the laptop.

2. Remove the battery.

3. Press and hold the power button for about 30 seconds then release it. (You will not see anything happen)

4. Connect the AC Adapter to the laptop. Make sure the AC Adapter is plugged in.

5. Turn the computer on as normal.

6. Once Windows boots, insert the battery.

If the notebook still does not power on, we recommend the notebook be\015\012serviced by our authorized repair depot. You can set this up for\015\012service yourself by going to www.acerpanam.com;\015\012click on the link for Depot Repair.

You will want to contact the manufacturer. They usually have a 1 year parts warrenty on your laptop. The most logical reason is that the mother board(Main PCB) has took a dump. You will want to read the material here: https://secure2.tx.acer.com/FixMyAcer3/FixMyAcer.aspx

Wireless Switch My laptop is a Presario2100 (not a 2100T). I have had it for just over three years. Naturally, 2 months after the warranty ran out, something stopped working on my computer. My wireless switch will not turn on. It probably isn't a card problem, because it will not even turn on enough to tell me whether or not it senses wireless networks. Instead, the switch itself seems to be broken because I push the button on the front right corner, and absolutely nothing happens. Is ther
