I have an acer 5920 that will not power up. I already tested the ac adapter. I recently replaced the dc wire harness, but still no luck with it powering up. I was wondering if it could be the motherboard? When I replaced the dc jack wiring harness, I noticed that there was a smell coming from the spot where you plug it into the motherboard. It feels very hot and I still get no lights, no power, no fans, nothing. I do know that the dc jack is good, I tested it.
Just trying to get a second opinion. Thanks in advance.
We get this sometimes when we THINK its the jack but its actually the charging CIRCUIT burnt out on the motherboard...
NEW mobo time is only option
All the best Brett
I just wanted to make sure before I went and bought a new MOBO. Thanks for the information. I kept on 2nd guessing myself if that was actually the problem or if i did something wrong. But, I kind of figured that the MoBo was burnt out.
