acer aspire 5315 laptop will not power on

March 21, 2011 at 12:38:27
Specs: Windows 7
Sorry I do not know the serial number because my sister gave it to me. It was working and I thought it was the power cord so I got a new one. The red lights came on for a second then it shut right off. Now I can not get anything. I know the BIOS needs to be flashed to fix the power problem. I don't know how to power up to flash the BIOS. Please help.

I'd be careful with any bios updates.

Laptops are pretty hard to fix. I'd try to remove the battery and use only the AC adapter. Then try it. The other swap would be to get a known good and charged battery but they are not cheap.

Sometimes you can try this and once in a while it works. Remove battery and ac cord then press power button a few times. They try ac only to see if it can start.

A tech may be needed to see if the ac adapter is providing enough power and the right voltage and free of ac component. Again it would be nice to try a known working ac brick.
