The Aspire 1800 suffers heat problems
Are the fans located on the anderside working ? are teh three vents on the back expelling air . id s this stream hot or warm?
I had an 1800 that had collected a blanket of fur and dust on the heat sink fins, it switched off during boot. Removal and cleaning fixed the problem. Remove the heat sink cover (bottom, rear, 4 screws) Remove the heat sink (4 spring tenshoned screws) loosen and replace them in the numbered order (1,2,3,4) do not disturb or touch the special grease on the heat sink and top of cpu, do not allow dust or dirt to contaminate these greasy surfaces. Yo can remove fur, dust, with a small wet brush or just rinse it away with fresh water allow to dry and replace all. good luck

My Acer Aspire 5810tzg won't start, I've check the power cable and battery and they work fine on other machines, it just won't turn on

There is one thing you can attempt before seeking repairs. You should try a power reset.

1) Unplug the AC adapter
2) Remove the battery
3) Hold down the power button for 30 seconds and then release it
4) Insert battery
5) Plug in AC adapter and see if the laptop can power on

If it does not power on, you may need to seek support with Acer.

Acer Aspire 1800 Won't boot

I recently had Acer Aspire One Laptop with very similar symptoms: No screen, no lights (those that indicates activities) except Power button. I first thought the Hard Disk is dead but it's not.
I contacted Acer helpdesk in Australia and they have sent me a document with BIOS update and instructions. I did what it says and then the laptop is back to normal. Yours may have the same issue - need BIOS update. The Aspire One BIOS update requires a FAT USB drive with the updated BIOS and the BIOS Flash program, plugged it in, press and hold 2 buttons: Fn and Esc, then press Power button for a while.
You should seek Acer Support website. But you may need proof of purchase.

Function F6 works only sometimes to blackout screen on acer aspire 5315

I just came here looking for a solution to the same problem. I have an Aspire 1800 which has a front panel of buttons for the Arcade mode. Basically i just wiped all the buttons again resonably vigiously as i was pissed off and low and behold the FnF6 works again. I tried this after i read another artical suggesting the removal of the touchpad driver. so obviously something is still depressed much like a sticky key which basically switches the screen immediatly back on as i had a flicker at least when i did FnF6. Hope this helps..
