Hello! I have an acer n50 pda, one evening i put it on charge and when i came back to it the next day i could not switch it on and ther was no charge indicator. It was definately working when it was put on charge as i was using it just before i charged it, but overnight something happend and it seems dead, i have tried soft and hard rests but nothing! Acer want £50 just to look at it so i asking somebody could be a better starting point. Could it just be a battery problem or something more sever? Any ideas?! Cheers

you could try the battery first, let us know how you get on after you have replaced that they do go out.

You could try removing the battery for about five minutes then turn it on again.

sounds like it had a power surge, and the mainboard is fried, something similar happened to another member here few months ago, not on the same model but it happened
