    I have a Acer ES1-711 ZYL laptop. I have taken the entire laptop apart and put it back together but no matter what I do it won’t charge. The LED lights won’t turn on. I don’t know what else to do.

    Hello Demoredell19,

    Couple of questions if I may, was there a particular reason why you felt it necessary to dismantle the notebook, have you tried another AC adaptor that is appropriate for use with your notebook, does the present AC adaptor have an LED on it that lights up when the power to it is turned on at the wall socket.

    I have two different chargers and both LED lights turned on. And when it stopped working the fan made a strange noise and it was covered in stuff so I cleaned it. And I also made sure everything was still connected and nothing was lose.

    If both chargers are the correct ones for the notebook and the LEDs light up on them but not on the notebook itself it suggests motherboard failure I`m afraid, if for example the CPU had fried because the cooling fan had failed you would still get the power button on the notebook chassis lighting up, the fact that it is not means that there is no power getting through.

    Please note that I would suggest that you get the notebook checked by a local tech or tech store who should have an appropriate AC adaptor.

    You are welcome, just sorry that I could not offer you a better solution :(

    It is a pity that you have to take the bottom off the notebook to get to the RAM but one other check I would try is removing the RAM and then try powering up, only having the one memory slot it would not cure the problem but RAM can sometimes short out the DIMM slot/s and short circuits can cause all sorts of problems and behaviour.

    I would replace the Cmos battery, a worn out one can cause some funny faults.

    I found this dismantling video, you may have to slow it down though :-
