Posted by Hirmiz on
I have an acer aspire 5520G and i can relate all too well. It worked fine for about 3weeks (from brand new!!) then one day the screen went blank while trying to boot. I managed to fix it and it worked fine for almost 2years, untill i went to sell it and encoutered the problem again.
The Fix: this is the fix that worked for me; firstly the problem; this seems to be a big problem with acers for some reason, and there are a few variations or confusions about it when people describe their fault. My fault is that when my laptop is off, i press the power button and the green light comes on, a fan starts up and there is hope, but then the fan changes speed slightly and it stays like that indefinatley, without the screen having ever come on, and i mean the computer is virtually dead except the power light and fan, you cannot press ctrl-alt-del or see the screen from an angle or with a torch. the only thing you can do is hold the power button and force a shutdown, so some deep seeded hardware is still working, but it seems the display never starts and the BIOS never loads.
My first fix - i managed to start my computer by pressing the power button, then as fast as i can (hold function button) repeatadly press F5 and F6 ie. with the function button held you are pressing [Black out screen/Restore Screen] and [Switch Monitors]. this usually starts my laptop on the first or second attempt. The first time i did this i was playing around with external monitor cables and connections, and switching monitors and the problem spontaneously fixed itself as mysteriously as it had arrived.
Second time was extremely frustrating, i could still load my computer by pressing F5 and F6 combos but could not get it to become self sufficent. I upgraded my BIOS with the Flash Updater from acer (i found it on the net) and after the second boot attempt, windows vista installed some memory drivers, and the problem was resolved.
if this hadnt worked i would have tried the memory battery fix as above, as my problem definatly seemed bios related.
Hope this helps someone from loosing their hair.

i cannot run d2d recovery from aspire 5610 4648. I have tried to press alt+F10 during boot up screen, but it doesn't work. Also i couldn't find acer erecovery management in acer empowering management. Any idea how to run d2d recovery, or how to copy from its hidden partition?

Send me an e-mail and I will send you the fix! If you can't downloadload it from the below link. I had the same problem. The mbr was replaced, you have to add RTMBR.BIN to the MBR and it will work again. As long as you can get on your desktop and run this bat file you will repair the D2D again. Took me an hour to learn what was wrong, It works 100% though. I have the Aspire 5610Z with the 2GB 533 mhz memory Stock.

Ok so here goes.... I had the same problem:
Go to the 'start' button and then hit the 'control panel' option, then click 'mouse' then go to 'Device Settings' and then to the 'settings'. When you get to this screen it shows a list on lthe left hand side choose the 'tapping' option and then ok.
Hope it works for you...it did for me.

i'v purchased acer aspire 4730Z laptop, from the specification I came to know that the bluetooth is attached with and keyboard have one key marked bluetooth. at the time of utility installation it shows no bluetooth device and after installation if i press the key it shows "NO DEVICE DETECTED". I wanna know (i) wheather my laptop have bluetooth device which will help me to transfer my data from mobile to laptop via bluetooth or (ii) the key is for my easy use when i will attach a bluetooth device it will activate with a single key press............... pls help me by giving the information..

The 4730Z does NOT have bluetooth. Check the specs on it from acer's website. The reason for the buttons are that it share much hardware with the 4930 which does have bluetooth. You will need to add a bluetooth device if you want bluetooth.
Once again, the a4730 doesn't have bluetooth in it's stock form.
