    Which Acer model do you have? Do you have the user manual to tell you which indicator is flashing?

I have the Acer Aspire 5000 and i unfortunatley lost the manual. So the problem is that when i put the power on the laptop there is a light on the side of the laptop and only blinks exactly 8 times and nothing happens on the screen. It is black while the light is flashing.

The drivers for the hardware don't exist for windows 8. You need to format. turn on holding the 0 key. follow steps to set to factory defaults, save your pictures and documents first cause this will erase them.

check by removing the battery then put it back again power it on, or without battery power it on directly then check, if still the same problem, the fault is in the motherboard of the laptop, better take it the service center or consult some technician in your area

E system 1212 Laptop won't switch on. Power


Laptops are so integrated that usually a system failure that involves power issues such as in your case where you cant get it turn on with anything on the screen mean the mainboard (motherboard) is damaged. This usually leads to buying a new laptop or paying for the board to be replaced which usually costs as much as the laptop.

My hp Compaq 6710b will not turn oh it flashes a yellow light 8 times and then goes off


I would suggest testing a new power supply on your laptop to rule that out as being the problem. This flashing light indicates a power problem on your laptop.

My wife has a toshiba satellite L35-S2151 laptop. When she went to turn it on, the orange battery light flashes 8 times and nothing else happens. Any clue as to what is going on?


Try turning on the device with the power connected if it turns on, keep the power plugged in for the entire day. See if you will have the same problem without the power supply. If it still occurs without the power supply, you may have a bad battery, you can verify if you can get swap battery from a similar laptop.

Laptop wont boot and the battery and power lights flash


a simple power cycle might work. Take out the battery but keep the ac power connected. hold the poewr button down for 1 minute. then hit the power button again and it should poewr back up. If this doesn' t work. iyou said hte battery light flashes so the problem isnt the battery..the problem might be hte ac power adapter..if you have a warranty this would be a good time to call them. Try the power cycle first though this fixes the problems lots of the time
