Acer aspire 5100 wont start up

I was working on osme home work and the computer was working fine. i went to the bathroom and when i came back the screen had frozen. i turned off the computer and restarted it. the power will come on and i can hear the fan spinning and feel the hard and disk drives spin up, but the screen does not display anything, even when hooked up to an external monitor. is this a motherbord issue? if it is can it be fixed, or do ihave to get a new laptop?

Remove the main battery, it is probably loading the power supply down. If your computer starts up, replace the rechargeable battery.

My Acer Aspire 5100 Laptop wont detect the hard drive


If it works on another computer then either the ide cable in the acer is bad/loose at either end or the ide controller on the motherboard is bad. I would try a known good ide cable first as if this is the problem it is fixable alot cheaper than a motherboard. Hope this helps.

Acer notebook usb not recognized


Sounds like a hardware issue. I would guess that there is a bad connection between the usb's and the motherboard. If you are comfortable dismanteling the laptop and re-soldering the usb's than give that a try, but I would recomend you give it to a pro.
Here is a link that explains the process. http://www.insidemylaptop.com/taking-apart-acer-aspire-5100-laptop/
