    Ya...I have an acer travelmate 290 (laptop) and it won't turn on. My brother, the genius he is :mad: , pressed a black nub on the corner of the computer (the one that puts it in sleep mode when you close/fold the laptop) and it went black and never started up again. When I press the on button, the cd device activates, the fan turns on for a few seconds then turns off. Nothing comes onto the screen. I've seen the troubleshooting book at the back, made sure the brightness is turned up and I even hooked it up to an external moniter but it was no use...I have no idea what happen or how to fix it...Plz Help!!! :confused:

    The little button that you are refering to, is I expect the same as the one on the refrigerator that makes the light go out :D

    I have one on my HP laptop as well. On my OLD laptop the button used to stick down occassionally, and I would have to tweak it to get it to pop up all the way.

    Give that a try.

    Look for a recessed "reset" button underneath or at the back.
