Was using this laptop and ended up falling asleep and when I woke up it was off and wouldnt turn on.
Tried plugging in the charger but the charging light only lights up for a few seconds and then turns off.
If I press the power button when the charging light turns on for that small moment the fan starts up for a moment but nothing else does.
If I press the power button after that it just flashes the power button 5 times and does nothing else.

    Followed the instructions on the link but nothing happened after.
    Pressed the reset button and left it for a few minutes then connected it to the charger and pressed the power button but nothing happened. 
    No lights turned on either

    Hi having same problem but did not even fall asleep what happened 
  • Hi @Sakura! First try this:
    a) unplug the notebook and unplug it from the electrical outlet! Turn the notebook over and press the battery reset hole for five seconds and then leave the notebook off for five minutes:

    b) If the first option does not work, it is possible that the interlock button is not pressed properly! To solve this, put some layers of electrical tape in the compartment that presses this button:

    Where were you using the laptop? On a desk/table or on a bed?

    @Dustydcp Ideally you create a new topic by clicking on "Ask a question"! However, try this: press some keys on the keyboard and still press them, press the power button and make sure the notebook turns on!

    It does work but as soon as i leave other keys it turns off

    Probably a keyboard problem! Is your notebook still under warranty? @Nish_008

    Forgot to post this way back then but in case anyone looks this up. I changed the old battery and charger for new ones and it worked fine after that. Not sure what the problem was exactly but it works now.

    This ACER Aspire 515 is teh worst laptop I ever had. Turn on on does not work. And when it was working was zapping you and keyboard never worked (some strokes didn´t work. number 3 working on one key, and not on the other. Even product was under warranty but ACER doesn´t care as they mentioned this is a factory static electrical fail . So they don´t cover it.. Piece of cheater company.
  • @MAneIH ;I would not accept this answer from the Acer service center. I don't work and I'm not an Acer employee, but if your notebook is still under warranty and there is a hardware failure, the service center should fix the notebook.
