Question about Acer Aspire L100 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Acer Aspire Mini L100 re accidental post

Okay please tell me how you fixed the problem? See right now I am faced with not very many solutions, the few that I have include 1. salvaging the hard drive and memory to be placed in a new computer/cpu unit 2. taking the computer in for a diagnostics test and if it can be upgraded with a new motherboard ending up doing that as well as replacing the processor chip that is inside it depending on if it is an AMD Athlon 2 socket vs 939 (those are now obsolete across the board for all computers) or 3. salvaging the hard drive and encasing it into an external hard drive case as I have had to do with another computer that died both power supply and motherboard problems.
So any help on this issue is greatly appreciated. I am not computer savvy totally but I do learn the insides pretty quickly as I was able to break the machine somewhat apart and disassemble parts of it myself. Long story short with a walk through I could pretty much figure out most of it myself. Thanx

Hey....i believe i did........lol..............unplug.....open up to access the motherboard...........remove the battery next to the front ports.
i am still not completly satisfied, but at least it is working like it was programed to do from the factoery. i installed speed fan to be able to monitor and control the temperatures while i was working on the this one. the smart fan does not react quick enough for my tastes and when the cpu is clocked at factory specs, it takes even longer to ramp up the fan. i am sure there are ways to modify the sotware to make it run cooler and react faster with fan speed, but i haven't the experience, but i amgoing to learn. you can get into the bios on hte restart by preesing the delete key when promted on start up. i cam also get into the bios command with alt f10, but do not know what command line to use to navigate there. any way, i have kind ofnoticed that on most problems like these people want to blam hardware istead of software. i know i thiught this motherboard or some component had failed when i first took the project on of fixing it.i have leaned not to be afraid of trying things, because most software hase default settings that can be returned to if i screw up, i can give you a little more about what seems to be happening wiyh this one before resetting.
the power manageent software seemed to be sending wrong voltages to different components which caused them to overheat. i also think the temp sensing software was haywire too because the speedfan temp readings have changed a lot sincei first started using it. bt in any case i have the satisfaction of being able to give my relative back a working computer. the speedfan was a life saver though, because i could control the temp and keep it fom crashing while i was working on it. i would recomend it to any one, but it is freeware that is free because it is still being developed and requires a lot of modifying to make it accurate.............ok............my finger is tired now......lol........jope this helps........also i posted on other similar topics relating to this model of computer. i actually like it because it isso small and operates pretty good compared to my hp pavillion that is 5 years old...lol.

I reset my surge protector and the computer wont power up. i think i need a new power supply. the power cord is working fine. Please let me know where i can find a power supply for the aspire...


The Acer Aspire L100 is a desktop computer powered by a special DC adapter and power cable. The computer's motherboard incorporates a fuse designed to prevent any power surges from damaging the computer. If the fuse burns out due to a power surge or for any other reason, the computer will no longer function. You can check the motherboard fuse for damage yourself, then take it to a trained technician for replacement if needed

Shut down the Acer Aspire L100 and turn the tower around.

Press the "On/Off" button on the front of the tower. If the computer will not boot and the fan does not turn on, the fuse may be burned out.

Unplug the power cord from the rear of the tower

Turn the tower on its side and remove the Phillips-head screws connecting the back panel to the Aspire L100's cabinet.

Pull out the motherboard assembly gently from the back of the cabinet. The internal fuse is located on the motherboard behind the DC power jack, which is to the right of the monitor jack

Let me know if this helped..

    Forgot Acer Aspire L100 BIOS master password. Used "cmospwd /k" to remove password, but power was cut accidentally. Now, machine starts POST (keyboard lights flash), but there is no display.


    In cas eof forgot password of bios you must follow the following steps
    • open the cabinet and look for the bios on the corner
    • there u would find a pin which is fixed on the side of BIOS take the pin out and put it in the next two pins and again fix it at the original p
    Now your BIOS password is reset and u can access your pc

    Acer Aspire L100 does'n start. no lite in front pannel. Power supply has 19 volt and getting to motherboard


    okay so 19 volts getting to the board, no boot, this could be a few things make sure the mobo is securely grounded (some boards are picky) make sure that all the cables (20 pin connector and 4 pin connector if there) are connected all the way.

    Acer Aspire L100 heat problem


    go into the BIOS and disable the smart fan. The next boot will allow the fan to run at full speed, approx 7200rpm instead of 2800 rpm and the machine will not overheat. However, its will sound like an aircraft on takeoff!

    Acer Aspire Mini PC


    Hi, you will be able to purchase a mini ATX format board by almost any manufacturer that will fit the acer case, the only problem you may hve is the PCI and Graphics cards will need to be low profile standards but these are also available if you are not planning on gaming then the on board graphics on most new boards will do all you ask of them.
