My Acer Aspire E 15 won't boot up. No logo, no led.

September 9, 2017 at 07:44:23
Specs: Windows
I was watching a video on YouTube through an external monitor. I left it on for a few hours, and when I came back to it, I unplugged the HDMI cord and opened up my laptop. It didn't turn on, so I unplugged the power cord, held the power button for 30 seconds and nothing happened. I changed the wall socket for my power cord and then plugged the cord back into my laptop. After I pressed the power button, nothing worked. There were no lights, no start up screen, and no sounds. My battery is built in.
It's been around fourteen hours since my problem occurred, so I'm almost certain it wasn't just simple overheating. Thank you for any help you can provide. Edit: I'm on Windows 10 currently. I didn't know how to change it from 8.

I was looking at other forums and I discovered that a lot of their ideas revolved around removing the battery for their solutions. I looked at the back of my laptop and found the pinprick of a hole with a small diagram to its side showing a battery coming out. I used a paper clip and held the button for a few seconds along with the power button. I heard a sort of "click" and my led worked. The laptop booted up, and is now at my home screen. I hope this could help someone out there. I don't know how to mark my problem as solved, but rest assured, it is.

One of the moderators will likely pick it up and give your response Best Answer (which marks it as solved). Thanks for letting us know.

Who knows what actually happened inside when you performed the paper clip move - but it worked!

Such little off the beaten track fixes are always useful to have around. Surprising how often they work for another..

Many thanks for posting it.

The paperclip probably opens a normally closed pressure switch and performs the same thing as removing the battery. A very good instinct in trying that. Great job.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
