Check the RAM module/s, try reseating them first, if it still does not boot up the remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendlt computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.

My Acer Aspire has a black screen, does not boot up, does not beep, does not run post. Tried changing memory, tried a different harddrive, tried reinstalling the OS but does not read CD but CD drive lights...


Try a different power supply. Even though the CD drive lights up, it still needs to power your motherboard up which does not seem to be happening at all.

If the power supply doesn't solve it then the motherboard is bad.

One more thing: if you changed out the HD you probably did this, but make sure all the connections are tight. Take them out, plug them back in. Sometimes-- not very often-- this is the problem.

Hi, My acer desktop has the yellow light flashing on the front but wont power up. Ive tried turning it off from the power supply and turning on again but the same thing happens.


Sounds like you are either in standby mode, or your hard drive is damaged and blocking the boot process.
If it's a standby problem, quickly taping the power button should wake it up. If it's a hard drive problem you can disconnect both the hard drive data cable and hard drive power to see if it will power up.

Acer aspire m3201 wont boot up


There are numerous issues that could cause this but if absolutely nothing happens, no lights, no fans, nothing then check the power supply. Use a simple voltage tester to see if you have any voltage on the connectors going to the hard drive and cd/dvd drives. If not this is a pretty easy and relatively inexpensive fix. You can e-mail me at globalmac@yahoo.com for more help.

No power, no beep, no boot but the fan is working. its acer aspire L310 desktop...do I need a new motherboard?


yes...i guess so...
because if the MB is OK then it must at least boot as booting is from CMOS/BIOS which is part of the MB...if it's not coming on and nothing comes on screen....then ur MB is out...
the FAN is of the power supply unit..

I have the ACER Aspire M3210 with ACER K/Board SK-9620 Where can I download the drivers


Go to www.acer.com, enter, select your country and click "Go". Click "Service and Support", look at the left side of your screen, you will see "Driver Download" under "Service and Support", then click the driver download. Select "product family" (Desktop), select product line (Aspire), select product model (Aspire M3201), then you will find the drivers below. Click them one after the other to download.

Take care.

Will not boot to operating system or the bios. no messages and no beeps


You probably have a bad power supply or one of your components is bad. I don't have enough info to point to anything specific, but here is some ideas you can try.
1) unplug all components internally but the power supply and check for bios beeps. Not the front panel wires though.
2) swap power supply or check with voltmeter for +5vdc, +12vdc, and -12vdc.
3) check for operation of fans attached to motherboard.
4) most likely suspects are motherboard, processor, or power supply.

The beeps that you are hearing are messages created by the POST (Power On Self Test) to indicate that something is wrong. If you know your motherboard type it is possible to find the documentation explaining what 3 beeps mean.

Because we don't know the motherboard type (At least for now) let's use the common sense.  Did you verify that the power supply is properly connected to the drive?  Can you confirm that removing the second Hard drive it boot again ok? In some type of BIOS 3 beeps means memory problem. By accident did you touch the memory? Are all the ribbon cables well plugged in?
