DV7 Power On By Pass (version 1) - TIP

For the older version of the DV7 you can bypass having to connect the power panel by shorting PIN 9 to ground, this will turn on the unit.  Saving wear and tear on the ribbon cable and connector.

This model was a DV7-1150US


  1. Hi Sir, I have a notebook Acer Aspire 4520 problem cant power on just clip clip LED only? How can i do me tqvm

  2. I have tried to inform readers that is not a question and answer blog but do try to assist when I can. Even then you should give as much information as possible, that will be more helpful if I have seen the issue before. More information is needed.

    If your English is not good, also include your language, if it is Spanish, German, French, Dutch, Portuguese I might be able to translate and read it better than Google or Altavista/Babelfish.


I cannot repair laptops for you via the internet, I can only answer questions related to posts. This is because I have not had experience on every motherboard that is out there. Bear with me.

If you do need it repaired. Contact me for quote (US/CDN Only)
