I've got an Acer 9410Z that wont' start. When I press the power button, the HDD light comes on for a few seconds then goes out. At the same time, the fan will start, then it stops. The power button stays lit, the battery and power indicator on the front panel also are lit appropriately. I've tried the reset procedure available at acer.com where I disconnect the power supply and remove the battery, press and hold the power button for 15-20 seconds and then plug it back in. nothing happens there
I've also removed and reseated the hard drive as well as the memory.
I can, however, sometimes here what sounds like a loose screw or somethign inside the caase whenever I change the laptops orientation, although I'm not certain where somethign like that would hve come from. I'm thinking I'm looking at mobo replaement if that's what it is since a loose screw is eventually going to short somethign out.
Any help is appreciated.
