Shuts down to black screen


Sounds like it is going into Sleep or Hibernation mode.
In Control panel go to Power options and see what the settings are.
Getting out of sleep mode is accomplished by pressing the power button once.

Acer one with windows 7 ultimate fall into sleep mode


A laptop computer is typically set to conserve battery power. One of the common settings called standby, sleep mode or hibernation turns off power to the screen and the laptop itself after a preset time limit passes without any mouse or keyboard activity. It can be inconvenient for the computer to shut down while you're working on an open page or during a download. Change the setting if you don't want your laptop to going into automatic shutdowns

Turn the laptop computer on with the power button if it's not set to turn on upon opening. Allow the system to boot up. Open the panel for adjusting the sleep settings. This varies among the popular versions of Windows operating systems. To change the sleep mode setting on a laptop running Windows XP, click the "Start" button, and click the "Control Panel" selection. Choose the "Performance and Maintenance" selection, and click on "Power Options." Click the "Power Schemes" tab, and click the drop downs next to "Turn Off Monitor," "Turn Off Hard Disk," "System Standby" and "System Hibernates." Select "Never" for each drop down in both the "Plugged in" and "Running on Battery Power" columns. Click the "Hibernate" tab and click to remove the check mark in the box next to "Enable Hibernation." To change the sleep settings on a Windows Vista laptop, click "Start," "Control Panel," "Systems and Maintenance" and "Power Options." Then click "Change Plan Settings" under the currently established plan. Click on the "Advanced Settings" tab and select the "Never" option on the "Sleep," "Sleep After," "Hibernate After," "Display" and "Turn off Display After" drop downs. Click the "OK" and "Save Changes" buttons to confirm the settings. To change the sleep settings on a laptop running Windows 7, click the "Start" button, choose "All Control Panel Items," select "Power Options" and click "Edit Plan Settings." Click the drop downs for "Turn off the Display" and "Put the Computer to Sleep." Choose "Never" for both and click the "Save Changes" button.

I got my acer and the power light comes on but the screen is black


This happens with my Acer Laptop too. Make sure the computer is plugged in to a power source and try a forced restart. If that doesn't work, try using the sleep command to but the computer to sleep while the screen is black but the power is on. The computer's power light should shut down, and you should be able to go out of sleep mode by pressing spacebar.

Acer aspire 5610z will not go into sleep mode, either by closing laptop, or by selecting 'sleep' from Start button. Stays on, but without screen - then has to be turned off and on manually.


Try to go into the energy management settings (by clicking the power mgmt icon in your system tray) and seeing what your sleep settings are. You should be able to customize your sleep settings to do more than turn off the screen.

The screen remains black when i turn it on. The power button turns green and blinking but the screen remains black.


try using the Fn + F?key (has a graphic of a monitor)F5 or F7 to switch the system from external monitor to the laptop ... you probably have it in presentation mode for external monitor.

Acer Aspire 3610 stuck in sleep mode


When you turn on your laptop do you see the P.O.S.T screen or it just remains blank? and also while booting up do you get any beep sound?
Try to boot your computer in Safe Mode by Tapping F2 (or Del in few laptops) key after pushing Power Button.
let me know what happens.

Aspire one with windows XP. Won't turn back on while in sleep mod


I've had spotty luck with Windows and sleep or hibernate modes. I would suggest just disabling sleep/hibernate mode. The options can be found under the control panel under power options. While turning off the sleep mode won't help your battery life, if you ask me, it beats having to power off the laptop by pulling the battery out. If you don't want to turn it off, you can try adjusting the amount of time it lets pass before it goes to slee.

My Acer Aspire 5000 won't turn on. I hit the power button, the light turns on for half a second then blinks off again. The HD doesnt start, neither does the fan and the screen never coms on. The battery is...


Hi,
sounds as if the laptops in hibernation or sleep mode.
Try refering to the user manual regarding the mentioned points.
also try alternating the memory from slot to slot, 1 faulty slot or ram module, will cause the computer not to boot.
Finally, if this is a model that has a ribbon-cable from power switch, to motherboard. ensure it,s inserted correctly/square et,c.

Hope this helps, thankyou for using Fixya.

Acer Aspire 3620


you have trapped it on sleep mode and there is nothing you can do for that. the only way you may be able to fix it is 2 try and unstall windows itself or even taking it to a technician that knows about the laptop more than what you do. (dont take it offence)
