    Hey everyone. I am really hoping you guys can help me out cuz i am really close to bashing my POS acer laptop with a hammer.

    Basically the Acer 3000 computer i've had for about 2yrs all of a sudden just stopped working. When i press the the power button it dosen't turn on.

    I initially thought it might be a problem with the power adapter so i went out and got a new one, that still did not fix the problem. Can you guys please help me out and just kinda give me an idea of what might be wrong? Thx

    If the unit is dead when you press the power button, then what you are describing sounds like your mainboard has failed completely and since you are probably out of warranty replacing it will be costly.

    Thx alot. How difficult will it be if i decide to replace the motherboard myself? I no professional with it comes to fixing computers, but i am pretty knowledgeable about how computers work. I have replaced a HDD before, so i hope that helps:confused: .

    I'm new to the laptop world. What if it's something really basic, like a broken power button?
    Easy to check with a desktop. Is it a pain with a lappy?

    I'd hate to see the OP spend a bunch of money if it's something simple...

    This isn't something simple at all. This sounds like a mobo failure, which takes a lot of work and money to replace. You can't even begin to compare replacing a hard drive with replacing a mobo.

    And for a laptop that's worth maybe $300, it won't be worth it to spend twice that just to fix it.
