Re: Aspire 3000 will not boot

Hello Halfwit, Your laptop is trying to boot from lan because it can't for some reasons to boot normally from the hard-disk. Try to listen if when you power on the laptop the hard-disk spins or makes any noises. If not there could be a problem with the connector that links it to the mainboard. If you hear a noise or the hard-disk spins then you may have a corrupted OS (windows) or some bad sectors problems. The best way to find out would be to try to boot the laptop by using a windows instalation cd. Boot from the cd-rom and check to see if the windows installer find your hard-disk and can copy files to it. You will need to change the boot order from bios to enable the cd-rom to boot first or enter some boot menu (if provided) and select " boot from cd-rom " or such thing. If you need more help with these please post back or contact me or other experts on the live chat function on this site. Good luck.

Re: Aspire 3000 will not boot

Looks like you have a problem with your operating system or your hard drive. I'd recommend the following in the order: -Check if the hard drive is detected in the BIOS. If yes, if you've received any diagnostics, please run those and check the results. If your machine is still under warranty contact the tech support for a possible hard drive replacement. If you cannot contact the tech. suppport, you may have to reinstall the operating system and you'd loose your data. If No, reset your Bios setup defaults and reset NVRAM..if your hard drive is still not detected in BIOS, most likely you have a Hard Drive failure.

Hi please help me with my acer 3003 wont boot

try to power up with power cord only and see if it works. If no lights turn on than your motherboard is dead. If it turns on and nothing happens make sure there is memory installed(RAM). If it turns on and you see windows screen than it shuts off than your operating system needs to be installed again. Also, you can try booting in safe mode by hitting f8 when you initially start your computer and see if it stays on and if it does you have a virus most likely. Good luck.

Laptop Wont Boot

Does it sound like it's starting up at all? Is the problem that only the screen turns blank? You might have just disabled the standard output. Try pressing Fn (bottom left on the keyboard) and the F5 on the top a few times to see if the screen toggles back on. You might also try to run it without the battery, and on the battery only in case it's a faulty battery or power supply that causes the problem. If not, it sounds lsike a serious problem, so if there is any chance of the waranty still being valid I'd call acer support asap.
