Hi all, my workplace recieved an Acer 5600u aio (i5 nVidia graphics) in a not working condition.
I'm not familiar with this computer so don't know what should light up or not.
When the power supply is plugged in the On light comes on (white) but no other lights appear on the front panel.
The screen turns a lighter shade of black for a few seconds then reverts to the original black.
The hard drive spins up and the dvdrom flashes,
I have left it on for many minutes but no screen at all and no Windows startup sounds.
There is only HDMI output no VGA so I cannot connect to an external monitor to see if anything comes up on screen at all.
I have removed the RAM (2 sticks) and tried them one by one individually in the 2 slots.
I have disconnected the hard drive and dvdrom.
I have removed the heatsink from the CPU and nVidia chip and cleaned and applied Artic Silver thermal paste.
All leads seem to be connected properly.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
