    I just purchased this acer from my son's wife. I think they did something to it because it worked fine a month ago. When I turn it on it will power to one point. Says because of possible new hardware installation it needs to repair - I go ahead and select repair mode and it goes runs a few minutes more then dies. Before I was able to get it to the bios screen but now I can not get it to stay on more than a few seconds - not even up to a minute. It keeps powering off. I have tried the battery removal and have kept ac plug in - even with the battery - will not stay on.

    I got a blue screen on mine last night then nothing. The power up light comes on and the fan kicks in, the two power lights on the left hand side of the front edge light up green, but it wont boot up. the third light down on the left side kind of flashes green intermittently and the Cd-drive tray wont open, although the light is on as well.

    I tried the battery disconnect and the external monitor and got nothing...

If you dont see any green lights and you dont hear any boot up sounds ( hd, fans, etc) try to take out battery and just plug in the AC adapter to a known good power outlet. Make sure your power plug is good too. If you hear boot-up sounds, see green lights but no display then toggle on the "fn" key and or try on an external monitor.

Black screen / HD light steady and the fan keeps running

Ok, check your RAM, reseat or clean it with soft eraser, only its edge connector both side. Do this when unit is off and no other power source is connected to it even its battery.

Hope this help.

Problem black screen for acer aspire 5050

Probably the video card. Check in Device manager to ensure the drivers are not corrupt. If they are there will be a yellow, red or black sign next to the video device. Right click, uninstall the driver then reboot. The plug and play will load the correct driver. If that does not work then replacing the video card is needed.
