Try this...

Unplug the ac charger. Take out the battery. Then press and hold the power on button for 20 seconds. Then press and release the power button 10-15 times. Then plug the battery back in and then the ac charger. Try powering on the laptop.

Try pulling out the battery, then plugging in the AC adaptor and then try to power on w/o the battery in the unit. If it comes on, it is probably a BAD battery. Seen this happen alot.

Sounds like you are having some major hardware issues. Did all this happen at once?

Can you see the BIOS splash screen?

If not, it sounds like the motherboard is fried. It would be cheaper to buy a new laptop at today's prices.

nope.but strange

by eltonpiko In reply to Question?

i cannot see the bios screen its totally blank but its really strange because after all that hard time it boot up once and i could use the laptop without a problem without the battery inside just on i assume that the problem was with bios i downloaded the latest bios version and update it via windows option and hade to restart.then it didn't boot again now having the same prob.

Never Assume anything

by cmiller5400 In reply to nope.but strange

Always make sure that you know before you act. I've been bitten before by the "update bug" It's not always in your best interest to update the BIOS on a machine that is unstable unless you KNOW that there is a fix in that release for the problems you are having. If the update went flukey and screwed up during the flash, you are totally toasted now. Depending on the age of the laptop it may be cheaper to just buy a new one because most laptops must be sent to factory to be re-flashed if the BIOS went south. Sorry.

the update i downloaded from the acer website was suppose to be a update to fix unbootabl issues.anyway ive open up my laptop to pieces and remove the motherboard i found that a chip broadcom bcm5764mkmlg have a hole inside it which i suppose the ic is for the network adapter and for the way it looks its totaly burned.could this help prevent the laptop from booting
