So my laptop is an Acer aspire V5 - 552 model, not sure if that is important, but I can't turn it on anymore. Here's the life story of this sad laptop before it died. When I was using it in college, this laptop occasionally turns on randomly at night so I assumed it was a windows update or something like that so I ignored it. (Several months passed). I can turn on the computer, sometime boot to login screen, and even rarely get to login and load windows, but then the laptop randomly turns off. A couple of days later, the turning off frequency increased. (A year later has passed). Now that I have another laptop, I want to know what's wrong with the acer laptop. I can't even power up the laptop. I looked inside and none of the capacitors seemed to have blown or become bad since the top looks relatively flat. It can charge with the ac adapter since the yellow turn on which means its charging. I also tried disconnecting the battery from the motherboard and then charging it with the laptop, but the light didn't turn on. I don't know how to take off the cmos battery so i didn't try. This is my current situation right now. I am not an experience in fixing computers, so most of the technical jargon I spew out I may not understand what it means. Also the fact that I can't get into computer engineering for my major should explain the need for detailed explanation or instructions if I want to learn which part of that laptop is broken. Also, thanks in advance to anyone responds to this post.
