PCs.... are like the flowers of the mechanical world; they are pretty and useful, but can be hard to take care of. After all, PC does stand for problematic cutie. There's always the chance that a PC has a problem...
That's why we're here to help! No one has all the answers, but together with all our experiences, surely there's hope!

So, before you post your problem, make sure to do the following so that we can help you fully!

1. Always give the entire story. Don't say "My computer crashed." Tell us when it crashed, what you were doing when it crashed, and any error messages that came up.

2. Post helpful titles. It is always good so that people know what your thread is about and can help you if they can relate to the title.

3. And of course, be polite and follow forum rules.


Hope you get your problem fixed, and Best Regards :grin:

Does anyone have any experience of Acer chromebook 14s, my mrs one just stopped working, it wont switch on, i thought it maybe was a faulty charger, but i got her a new one and still the same, i will do a bit of research tonight and open it up tomorrow and have a look at it, but i just wanted to check and see if anyone else ever had a similar problem with this model, thanks.

So just an update and an end to my problem, finally this morning i opened the laptop up and had a look, nothing obvious stood out, so after a bit of tampering i found the problem, the connection in the laptop was not connecting fully with the charger when inserting it in, so i moved it slightly and stuck it with a little double sided adhesive tape, and now its fully charged and working away, Marcoose and Cactikid, thanks for your help and suggestions, much appreciated.

The 5 tags are like snippets of info to guide to your post

tags,
Microphone , laptop , drivers , W10 , apps,

Something like that is needed when it asks for tags and posting in the computer forum section.
