I gave a teen family member an Acer laptop for xmas in 2010 and he said the laptop suddenly stopped powering on recently. He has already tried taking the battery out, putting it back in, tried turning it on and off, he tried taking out the battery and using only the power cord, but even that won't work. The only thing is the charging light comes on when he tried to charge the battery, but it never showed fully charged, even after many many hours. It still won't power on. And by this I mean nothing, it just looks a laptop that's off. It does absolutetly nothing. The power light doesn't come on either. He swears that he didn't drop it or spill anything on it. He said it worked fine, then suddenly the next time he went to use it, it just wouldn't turn on. He's tried many times since to no avail.
Does anyone have any idea what could cause this? Maybe the motherboard is bad?
