Specs: Linux i686, 2gb
Hey there,

I have an Acer Aspire 5552, it was purchased around Christmas 2010.

Its been through a bit, (2 HDD's and another needed, this means I'm booting from my DVD drive, changed via BIOS, so currently running Linux Ubuntu 9.1, normally Win 7, same problem though) but when I go to start it up, the power button only works randomly, it could start straight away, or it could take 20+ minutes of me pressing it for it to actually start. Sometimes I have to bang it, which actually works more than just pressing it. Then we hit another problem, most of the time, when it decided to start up, theres some fan noise, lights, then nothing, it decides to switch it self off. And the process starts again. Once it starts fully, its fine, and everything works as it should.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks Danny.
