I have an acer aspire 5942g. I turned it off one night, and went to turn it on the next day and now it won't boot up.
Doesn't show anything on the screen, the power light comes on, the keyboard back light turns on, the media controls are still useable and the bluetooth light is on solid, but the laptop doesn't display anything or seem to proceed any further as the bluetooth light would normally turn off (no bluetooth module in this laptop).
I have tried the whole remove battery, hold power button down and just turn on with AC adapter plugged in with no effect.
I've taken it apart and reseated the CPU and redid the thermal paste. However I did notice that the old thermal paste has gone onto some of the resistors on the top. Could this cause a short?
It's almost like it's stuck in a sleep mode.
Any suggestions would be highly helpful. I'm worried that the board is dead, but I can't find any replacements online.
