Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5520-5908 Notebook ?

Notebook will not power up. Light comes on, it makes a noise and then stops and light goes out and keeps doing this over and over.


Answers :

Its going to be a motherboard problem then. Whats happening is the motherboard is either not recognizing the memory or the CPU properly. In this case the motherboard needs to be replaced.\015\012\015\012If you have any warranty left then you can get a hold of acer and try and get a replacement, otherwise you can do a search on Ebay and maybe find a motherboard on the cheap.
Could be a bad memory stick. Try replacing or even just delete one if in a pair to troubleshoot.
