  1. Hello,

    Recently, my laptop shut down and I havn't been able to turn it on since, I thought it might have been my Power Cord, so i got that replaced, but it still never worked?
    Nothing works, nothing works when i press the power button, I tried taking out the battery and power cord, etc. but still nothing...

    I don't think it is the motherboard because I recently had my motherboard replaced with a brand new one, so I don't really know the problem?

    Could somebody please help me...?

    Hi Howlett93,
    Welcome to Techspot.

    Just a couple of question:

    Why was the orgigional motherboard replaced?

    What is the make of the Laptop?

    What did you do the day before is didnt turn on again?

    CAn we have more PC specs? eg operating sytem RAM etc.

    When you tired taking out the battery did you hold down the powerbutton for about 0 second to get rid of any remaining charge.

    This gives us a clearer picture.

    Yes the original motherboard was repalced.

    It is an Acer Aspire

    I wasn't doing very much on it, typical work...homework, web surfing...

    2 Gigs of RAM

    Yah, I held it down for 30 secs but still nothing?

    Well this is all spelling out either a mobo or BIOS problem to me.

    How good are you with hardware?.

    I think a good option would be to go with a hard CMOS reset. However this would require opening up the case and moving a jumper.
    It depends on whether you are comfortable doing that and whether i can find out how :rolleyes:
