My laptop recently died on me it won't power on when I press the power button it blinks for less then a second and the led at the bottom that has a light icon does the same. Nothing comes on the screen. I have tried booting with several sticks of ram and 2 different cpus. I'm beginning to think my motherboard is shot.
My keyboard has started being erratic and not responding when some keys are pressed. I use the notebook mostly as a docking station, with a larger monitor and separate keyboard, so it's not an issue of the keys being misused or over-used. It's not related (as far as I can determine) to caps lock or any interference with USBs. It happens when I'm booting up as well as when I'm typing in a document and with nothing attached to the computer other than the power cable.
My notebook, Acer 5755G is after warranty and it's overheating. I have to clean a cooling system and change thermal paste. On the Internet I found few guides, but there people are dissembling this notebook almost completely... Do I have to do it or can I just remove a back cover to get access to cooling system?
it's happened in the past while gaming, but not as much as recently. while carrying the laptop recently I believe I broke the fan somehow and it's causing it to overheat even more. I believe the best choice is probably replacing the fan, but I've found it is extremely difficult to find the exact fan in my laptop. How compatible does the fan have to be to be replaced? Is it absolutely necessary to replace the fan?
I connected with the power plug and there was no green/yellow light next to the power socket. It seems not charging at all. Now it is forever dead. Tried to take the battery pack off, and connect it directly power plug, still dead.

How to zoom (increase text size) on the aspire switch 10? My other computers have a settings for this, Also, where can I get a user's manual. They are requesting a number I neither can find, or can't understand where it is, or can't read even with a magnifing glass.
I have Aspire 7520 with xp OS. It has weird sound problem. Sound is not coming from speaker but when I plug in my headphone it does, but that too is very distorted. It was working fine previously both speaker and headphone. I dont know what went wrong? "Audio_Relatek_5.1" drivers are currently installed.
I've also checked sound setting they are perfectly fine.

My power plug on my laptop finally gave out. I cant find any articles on taking a VGN-AW series laptop apart. This is my second AW series which is a VGN-AW120J. I know theirs 2 different plugs for them. The on I have doesn't have a enclosure inside the plug and has 2 prongs that touch the pin in the power adapter.
It is now charging and all but when I try and boot all that happens is the the Caps Lock, Num Lock, and Scroll Lock lights turn on for about a second or 2 then they turn off. Also the "charging" light extinguishes when the others light. I get no beeps, fans or anything.
Now my buddy, said that he did a similar replacement on his daughters laptop and that "the board needed reprogrammed afterwords"?? I'm not sure what he means by this .....
My X200 (three or four years old) has a new battery (few months only) and has never had any power issue. Suddenly since last week it will not operate without the power supply plug in. Battery is showing 100% and condition excellent, but the second I remove/unpower the power supply plug, the system crashes. On restart with power supply attached, the battery indicator shows 1%! It then gradually creeps up to 4% and after maybe 5 mins it leaps back up to 100%.
I've had my laptop for a little bit under 2 months, so these are the things I have noticed.
Issue number 1: When you plug in the power cord into the computer, the screen freezes on what it is currently on. I noticed this issue because occasionally when I plug in my power cord, and try to use the mousepad to select something, the mouse pointer is gone! I have to unplug-replug the power cable to get the mouse pointer to show again. It seems to have to do with the screen
Issue number 2: when I carry my E7440 around in my bad, or have it shut for long periods of time >3 hours (I just simply close the lid), the computer will SHUT DOWN. The thing will shut down completly, even though I simply closed the lid! At first I thought it was just going into hibernate, so I disabled hibernate in my power settings. But nope, even when the computer is asleep, it will occasionally shut it self down for no reason at all.
Just now, I closed the lid on my laptop, and put in in my bag, then walked to my office about 10 minutes away. When I sat down at my desk and opened my laptop, to my surprise, it had shut down by itself! All of my open windows, browsers, and applications were closed, and upon opening chrome and microsoft word, I was greeted by "your browser did not shut down correctly" and "microsoft word has recovered files". This points to the conclusion that it was not hibernates fault, but instead a issue with the laptop itself shutting down when it is put in sleep. This issue needs to be rectified immediately if it is a widespread issue.
Issue number three: When the computer comes back from hibernate or sleep, the computer is very very sluggish, even when plugged in. It is sluggish forever, OR until the power plan is set from whatever it is to "high performance". upon switching to the previous powerplan from high performance, the swiftness of the system is restored. This indicates to me that the system is throttling itself after it resumes from hibernation, why. This needs to be fixed; many people (myself included) just thought that the system itself was slow and underpowered, not realizing that it was just throttling itself when it emerged from sleep or hibernate.
I bought this inspiron 15r 5521. Its approx 2 year old. There was warning in battery status in the PC checkup. Few days afterwards the laptop did not start up. I searched and did a hard reset..BUT when i shut it down or hibernate . again its like dead and i have to plug in the power cord for 20 min and do a hard reset to turn it on . It also happens that if i shut down while the power cord is plugged and i take it out and again plug it , it stops charging..(again need a hard reset).
I have an Aspire 6930 that suddenly died and will not power on. The LED power button was dark and unresponsive. I performed a power reset and the blue light on the power button came back on until I pressed the button to try to restart the laptop. When I did that, the blue LED immediately went dark and stayed that way until I did another power reset. It never gets to the point of anything powering on. Is it a problem with the battery or it the laptop toast?
This is a real bummer since I just replaced the hard drive a few weeks ago and replaced Windows Vista with Linux Mint (which btw is blazing fast compared to Vista).
Acer 5253 - Will not power on, battery or on AC power. Have tried all the suggested solutions but none have worked. Is it possible to get maintenace instructions (disassembly, where certain items are located, etc)?
