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

Wear is the wireless button on ac er aspire 5738z?


Good day,

The wireless switch or button on your notebook will allow you to connect to a wireless network, or when not connected, save battery power by turning off the wireless network adapter.
The wireless switch or button can be identified by having the following icon on or next to it:
icon_wireless.png or icon_wireless_dish.png Depending on which Acer model you have, this switch or button may be found in different locations.
  1. Just above the function keys (F1-F12)
  2. On the forward most edge of the notebook
Keep me posted!

I have an acer aspire 5315 and the screen goes black I have tried to go into set up and I have taken out bateries etc but it's still not working . Any help is greatly appreciated thanks


Hello mariawint589,

The following instructions are from the Acer Aspire 5315 user's guide (page 35):

The computer's power management system automatically blanks the screen to save power. Press any key to turn the display back on, three hings might be the cause:

*The brightness level might be too low. Press <Fn>+<right-arrow key> (Increase) to adjust the brightness level.

*The display device might be set to an external monitor. Press the display toggle hotkey <Fn>+<F5> to toggle the display back to the computer

*If the sleep indicator is lit, the computer is in sleep mode. Press and release the power button to resume.

If this solution is helpful please click a thumbs-up rating.

Have a great day,

I own an Acer Aspire 1800.When turn on with its adapter plugged in, it dims the display (like if it were on battery power) and the power button starts flashing green and the laptop BEEPS every twenty...


it sounds to me that your adapter that charges your laptop is faulty or the charging port on it is faulty your should try to purchase another adapter and if this fails you will have to have it repaired i hope this helps!

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..
