Acer wont boot

My acer wont even turn on... sounds like the fan spins up but then the light turns off it tries twice more and nada... I read another forum about updating the bios but it sounded overwhelming and difficult. could it be something different?

  1. any odd beeping or messages on the screen ?
  2. Does it make any difference if you remove the memory modules/the hard disk drive/the battery (one at a time)?

    That's totally understandable. I mentioned these parts because these can be removed with relatively small effort. Beside these, I can't see too much sense in taking the computer apart, since you wouldn't be able to do anything about e.g. a motherboard fault anyways.

    So I wouldn't recommend to do anything remotely drastic, like taking out the hard disk. However, if you (your girlfriend) has important files on it, this might prove to be the only way to access them, that is putting the drive into an external usb enclosure, and connect it to another computer. Just food for thought. (And if you send the computer away for repair (maybe on warranty), this is also worth a shot, since you might get it back exchanged/restored to factory default.)
  8. take the ac power out take the battery out take your ram out and hold the power button for 15 seconds then put it back and see if it works.
