I'm taking it into Best Buy, we got that protection plan thing. Also, it could be the VGA card. I still need help if anyone has it.
I have an Acer Aspire X3200. We had a juice spill in the grate right above the fan. I took off the cover, unscrewed the fan, took off the metal guard above the VGA card, cleaned everything carefully, including the area around it, put it all back together, and as soon as I plug it in, the fan runs full blast and the computer will not turn on. I think the motherboard may be fried. Any suggestions? It's our only good computer for the kids.
Also, I don't think this affects anything, but one of the screws to the metal guard above the VGA card got lost during moving. I don't think that affects anything, though.
