    Both. We managed to open the laptop and found the south bridge was getting rather warm in the short time the power is ON.

    The Fan stops after a few seconds. The the AC adaptor the Power LED is still ON. Nothing else works.

Hi babbra,

Does this happen with the ac power or on battery power or both?

    Hi Babbra,

    If I understand you correctly, the Processor is getting warm immediately after the power is turned on and the fan stops after a few seconds. Sounds like the fan needs replacing. What is happening and why it's happening is because of a heat saftey feature built in to the motherboard. Once the laptop is powered up and the fan stops the heat temp is recognized in the bios as being too hot so the system will not boot.



    Replace the fan and let me know how it turns out.

Laptop wont start.


Remove the battery and unplug the power cord for 5 minutes, put in the either the battery or the powercord and power on.

if it doesn't power on, make sure the charging light is lit on the front of the laptop when the power adapter is inserted and plugged in properly.

light blinking when you power on means battery low / no power.

If the problem doesn't go away you need to contact acer for warranty service if you are outside warranty contact a local repairer.

I press the power button on acer 5735 notebook the fan kicks in etc , then after a few seconds the power light goes back off before the computer boots up , what could e the cause ?


More than likely a virus or a video card. Hopefully the video card because if it is a virus then you will have to replace the hard drive. Hope this helps

Acer aspire 5315 doesnt boot blank screen


When you power up the laptop press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios setup.
Then check your harddisk is detect or not?
Then also make sure SATA option is disabled in bios.
Then go to boot option and set first boot device as your harddrive.Then save settings and exit.
But if you even not able to enter in bios then you have reset bios settings and Refix RAM memory .
For that open back cover fo laptop and find cmos cell on motherbord pull it for 10 minutes so all settings of bios goes to factory defaults.
Let me know if you need more assistanse.
Thanks.
