If you need to get your files out, pull the HDD and place it in some USB drive case.
From what I can tell this is from 2007 or older. The most common failure I see in such old laptops is the battery failed, the owner didn't know to remove the failing battery and the charging circuit fried leaving a dead machine in need of a motherboard. Between motherboard, battery and charger you'll spend more than any discount laptop.
First of all i should let you know that i don't know very good english so please try to answer as simple as you can. One other thing is that I'm a basic user, I'm not some programmer/developer or anything related.
So let's get started. I have a problem with my acer aspire 3053wxmi and as the title says, it just won't turn on. When i put the cable on, just a yellow light is lit. Nothing else. It seems like the power button is not broken or anything so I'm kind of confused. Could this be from the motherboard since the it seems to be transmitting electricity normally?
Again my apologies for my english and thanks in advance!
