If your Acer Extensa 4630Z laptop computer won't start up, several potential solutions exist. A simple fix may allow the laptop to start or it could require complex internal repairs.

External Issues

Check for problems like damaged or loose power cords, a disconnected battery or a bad wall outlet. Even if it is running on battery power, the notebook computer will eventually run out of juice if it cannot charge the battery with AC power.

Power Reset

Another option is to conduct a "power reset." The manufacturer recommends disconnecting the battery and adaptor, holding the power button for 30 seconds, then reattaching the battery and adaptor for normal use.

Power Supply

Often when computers won't start up, a failed power supply is causing the problem. According to Acer, the Extensa 4630Z uses an AC adaptor or a battery for power but requires an adaptor to charge the battery. The adaptor may need to be replaced. If it runs on AC electricity but won't start from the battery, the laptop might need a new battery.

Internal Repair

Another possibility is that the Acer Extensa 4630Z itself needs repair. It may require a new power button, a replacement motherboard or other parts. For repair service, visit the Fix My Acer section of the manufacturer's website (See Resources) or dial 866-695-2237 to order a part.
