Ok so i think its been about 3-4 years since i have had my Acer Aspire 5742Z Laptop, the other other day whilst logged on to Windows 7 the laptop just swtiched off on me (plenty of charge left on the battery), no warning, no prompts just died. And now it refuses to turn on. Since then i have tried charging it, no response and get no inidicator lights either, have looked on line and tried various cures including taking the battery and wall charger out and holding the power button for 1 minute and then plugging it all back in and trying to turn it back on again, with a few variations. NOTHING WORKS. The charger seems to be working as per the small green light that lights up on the charging adapter attached to the mains. so whys it not charging, no chargin indicator light on the laptop? Also it doesnt even come on when the battery is pulled and just the mains is plugged in. As i said the Laptop is completly unresponsive, no indicator lights, nothing.
Im absolutly furious at this, i havent even had the laptop for that long, is there anyone here who can offer me any suggestions as to how to fix it or what could be the problem please? Failing this i am going to take it up with Acer. My warrenty has run out but im sure that cant be the end of my rights.
