A friend of mine has one of these very cool looking notebooks running Windows XP. However it developed a problem in that when you turned it on, nothing happened, you could however hear the hard-drive working away like it was loading up windows and then stopping.
After trying out the notebook on a PC monitor and trying to find a USB or network cable to use to connect to another working Laptop nothing seemed to work. So i said id take it home and mess around with it, messing around meant id try to get it to work even though i had no idea.
The first thing i did and always do when there is a problem with anything is i Google it. So off i went to google and typed in;
“acer aspire one wont turn on”
Simple really i typed in the exact name and model of the notebook and what was wrong and the first result lead me to a site which had a fix;
And by following the intructions it brought the notebook back to life amazingly and it only took about 5 mins, amazign what you find when you google it.
