Hi, my acer n50 PDA has been charged, connected to the internet, al the while the LEDS have been the right colour, but it wont turn on! Ive tried Resets but nothing works. Taking it to an electronic store wont help either because i purchased it in scotland and now i reside in Australia.

Any guesses?

Try removing the battery for a while and inserting it again. If it doesn't work, try turning it on, while the power cable is attached. If you used to charge it through the USB cable try the wall charger instead.

If all this doesn't work, it's time to have it serviced or replaced...
