i went for a holiday for a week, i came back and found out my acer notebook (travelmate3202) wont turn on anymore

i had followed the instructions

1. Switch off your unit.
2. If your unit is plugged into mains power, switch the power off at the wall.
3. Unplug all cables from the unit and remove the battery.
4. Hold your finger down on the power button for 10 seconds.
5. Wait for 15 minutes, then plug all cables back in, including the battery and switch the power back on at the wall.
6. Switch your unit on.

but still had no effect, any1 else out there know how to fix this?

Not the greatest at these things but some experience with ACER's, Typeing on my 3rd one now. They are notorious for bad power supplies. So my question is: Is the indicator light comeing on when power supply plugged in? (i know simple question but often the most overlooked)

well....

If green indicator light on the "brick" isnt even comeing on then more then likely your problem is power supply. Either buy a new one, or borrow a friends who has an acer and test it out.

Hope it helps, i know how fustrateing it can be. Ive killed the supply on all 3 of my ACER's. Luckily you can pick them up pretty cheap.

Good Luck
