Hi This is my first post.
I bought the Acer LT for my son the approx age of the LT is 1 year old off ebay (barely used) private sale. The LT has been working fine for 3 weeks, then last night it would not boot up.Press main power switch on, power indicator comes on with the battery indicator fully charged up.Also the HDD indicator comes on briefly then goes out.
Fan runs but will not start up,just blank screen.
Help please, im stumped.

Cheers Kev.

First try the Laptop without the battery in, see if it will start with Charger only

Also, try removing and refitting the Hard Drive, under a plate at the bottom. pull the Mains plug before doing the above, not just turned off

Hi tried the battery,still nothing.I can not see how I take the HDD out?

Hi Again, Managed to remove and put back HDD.
Still nothing, made a mistake in my first post fan was not working either.

Well its not going to run if the Fan is not working as the CPU will shut down to prevent damage, so it looks like a tripe to a Laptop Repairer unless its under warranty

Hi What do you reckon that will cost me as its out of warrenty.

It depends on who does it, Computer Fairs. Them that sell second hand laptops may be able to help

Yes but any idea how much £30, £40 or £100 plus
