How To Restart Acer Laptop
On my Acer Aspire Switch 10 laptop, I justran into a problem with it not turning on.
Actually, I have two Switch 10s and both havehad this problem so this time I decided to get my camera out and record how I fixed thisissue so I know how to deal with it in the future.
There’s actually another issue I found asyou’ll see later in the video but I’m not completely sure if both problems are relatedor not.
So when I hit the power button, nothing happens.
I noticed that the power light is not on eventhough it’s plugged in.
But when I unplugged then plugged it backin, the power light came back on.
Right now, I’m ready to reset the Switch 10and boot it up.
The thing that worked for me was to hold thePower and Volume Down buttons together for 25 to 30 seconds.
Like I mentioned before, this is the secondSwitch 10 I own that has had this problem.
I’ve read online people using different buttoncombinations but for me holding the Power and Volume Down buttons is what worked.
You might see various dialogue screens showup after this reset.
After logging in, this is where I found mynext problem.
As soon as I connected the keyboard, the computerwould shut off.
I reset the computer several times and eachtime it would shut off as soon as I connected the keyboard.
When it’s connected, the reset trick wouldn’twork.
The only way I could reset the laptop waswithout the keyboard.
I did manage to get the computer to stay onfor a little bit when the computer was only open part way.
But when I opened it up more, it shut offagain.
This led me to believe that this new problemwas in the hinge.
For a week I couldn’t figure this out.
Then one day I started flexing the hinge andopening the laptop as far as it could go.
It was then I was able to keep the laptopon while connected to the keyboard.
The flexing must’ve twisted something backin place.
I think the keyboard was triggering sleepmode or something.
But it all seems to be working now.
Not sure if this solves your problem but hopefullyyou were able to pick up some tips to help you with your Switch 10.
