Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

2 Answers

My Acer 5100 series problem is that I turn it on, i get the fan to come on, the cpu has power, but I get nothing on my screen or anything else to work on it. There are no beeps so I can't use beep codes from the BIOS to figure it out myself.

    I have the exact same issue. Prior to that I was having hard disk issues and occasionally grey horizontal and vertical lines will appear on the screen.

Try pressing Fn+F6 might work but to me sounds like the lcd is shot if you have any external connections to hook it up to a tv or a computer monitor i would try that out and see if anything comes up as well if it does then its the lcd you might have to press Fn+F5 to switch from lcd to monitor or other external device. I think that is what it is for your model.

let me know if its not and I will make sure of it.

When I press power button, only power button is lit green solid and nothing else happens...nothing on the screen...all black. No sound codes. Tried external monitor...nothing. CPU fan keeps running....


yes its motherboard. GPU has failed. Most likely you'll need to get your motherboard Reballed or Reflowed. I have found some reasonable business partners that do this service through ebay. usually runs 80-140 to get fixed. good luck!

Acer aspire blue screen appeared went off now laptop starts up for few seconds then turns off again, but always a black screen hear the fan a few seconds but nothing


Try this:
  • check to make sure the fan is actually spinning and that there is no debri (dust bunnies) causing it to overheat.
  • Make sure there is nothing preventing airflow, you may need to tilt the back up to allow more airflow
Is there any display at all? Do you see a BIOS splash screen? Do you hear a beep shortly after powering on?

--if you have a splash screen, go into BIOS setup by pressing a button (del,F1,F10...whatever) then set it factory defaults and save changes

--also try removing anything that's detachable (USB, cards, dvd-rom, RAM, Battery...) Hold down the power button for 20 secs then plug in only the A/C and see if you get a bios screen

Hope this helps

Acer 5100 Has no screen


It sounds like the mainboard or CPU died. Generally the hard drive is fairly easy to remove, look on the bottom or the side for a screw labeled "HDD", which should uncover the hard drive area.
