Thank you for reading this. I could really use some help. There is work I need to finish, but can't. Below is the problem and what I have done so far.
My laptop [Model: Acer Aspire V5 572P] was working fine today. I simply closed it (pull the screen down to shut it) while it was on, put it in a protected bag and took it home (4 minutes). When I opened it again, I noticed it was off.
I heard something moving around inside and it appears that a screw inside the laptop case broke and was moving around inside the laptop while it was closed and on.
I'm quite sure my charger and battery are ok. I've never had an issue with either. The battery was at about 42% when I closed the laptop. Can anyone help me and let me know what I should do? Could a screw (covered in plastic) cause any damage inside?
WHAT I HAVE DONE
Thus far, I watched this video:
I did the following:
- I tried the battery reset button. I then plugged it in and nothing. No lights. No power.
- I removed the battery. I then plugged it in. Nothing. No lights. No power.
- I removed the hard drive. Same thing. Nothing.
I have a memory slot, but no additional memory, so I can't remove any RAM.
I'm quite sure my adapter is working and the batter was fine.
Anyone have any ideas?
I use my laptop for work and I would appreciate any help anyone can give me.
