Instructions on how to fix the Acer Swift 7 not powering on or displaying a charge indicator.

Why won’t you turn on?!?

I bought my girlfriend an Acer Swift on an Amazon Black Friday sale and she has been thoroughly enjoying it. It is light, fast and can handle the day-to-day social media tasks she throws at it.

Acer Swift 7
So fast and light.

e laptop would not power on. After a lot of troubleshooting and searching the internet for answers I found this post –

I just want to share these instructions again in case they are lost in the abyss known as the Internet.

  1. Remove the charger.
  2. Check for a battery reset pinhole with a battery symbol on the bottom.
  3. Gently insert a paperclip for about 10 seconds to disconnect the battery.
  4. Let the machine rest for about 15 mins.
  5. Plug the charger back in. Try to turn it on.

These instructions worked for her laptop and I hope they work for anyone else suffering from the same issue. If you have a question or comment feel free to contact me at:
