Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a brand new acer aspire one. A moment ago, when I wanted to open it, I saw that the green light on its top right, that is, at its "start" button was on, and the battery was a bit displaced at one end. I pushed back the battery, connected the acer to electric power as usual and waited for long. Nothing happened, except that the ventilator was running ... When I wanted to switch it off, by pushing the "start" button, it did not respond, and the green light kept being on ... I closed the acer, unpluged it from electricity, and started to remove the battery. At that moment, I could see inside the closed acer that the green light on the "start" button went off, and the ventilator stopped ... Question : what is going on, and how can it be fixed ?

    dear knotbeerdan

    I tried your suggestion. 
    when I stopped pressing the power button, it simply went dark. meanwhile, the screen remained dark all the time, however, the fan started running as soon as I pressed the power button.

    some minutes later, I pressed the power button again, but only short, that is, as usual. The computer reacted as before : the power button remained gree, the fan started, but not at all the screen.

    after that, again, the power button would not go dark upon a short,, usual pressing, but only after one of 5-10 seconds ...

    beats me ... !!!

    dear knotbeerdan

    some further detail :

    I plug the computer into the electric power, press short the power button, and immediately after hear the fan moving.
    the power button remains green, and the screen dark for minutes ...

    if now I press short the power button while it is still green, nothing changes : the button stays green when released, the fan keeps moving, and the screen is black.

    however, if I press for 5-10 seconds the green power button, then sometime inbetween the fan stops and the power button goes dark, while I still press it.

    lastly, if at the beginning above, instead of pressing the power button short, I press it longer, then again, the fan starts, the power button goes green, but after a few seconds, it goes dark while I am still pressing it, and the screen is dark all the time ...

Most likely your laptop is going into sleep mode. Lots of them do not like sleep mode if nothing happens when you push the power button try to hold it down for about 5 sec. your computer should power off and then you can start as normal. If this problem persists change the options in your control panel to turn sleep mode off. That should solve it.

    It kinda sounds like you got a laptop with a bad screen if nothing appears at all during the boot up then that would be my next guess. It might help if you go to the manuf. website and see if there were any recalls or any complaints from others with the same problem

I have a newly bought Acer Aspire 3810T. When I opened it last night I saw a green vertical line, and until now this green line still appears. Can you please help me?

"....a newly bought Acer Aspire 3810T...." It's NEW.. why mess around with it.
Read the manual that came with it. If the green line means somthing, it will be in the manual or Quick Sart guide. If not, it's defective and should be returned for exchange or repair.. under warranty.

Save any personal info to a cd first.

    Hello sean_FULL,

    The green e button at the top right corner is called the Empowering Key. It is used to launch the Acer Empowering technology on the Acer Aspire 5315 computer.

    Here's a good link to the Acer support web site that has more information about the Acer Empowering Technology:

    I am unable to connect my acer aspire to a my existing wireless connection

    I have two Acer Aspire One Netbooks: x1 10.1" and x1 8.9". The switch located on the very front right edge of these Netbooks is quite tricky to get it to actually switch the WiFi radio ON / OFF. Double check that switch position and since it is spring-loaded, you will have to try to see the tiny green light flickering if WiFi radio is active. The green ON (active radio) lamp is TINY and dim at best even when Brand new.

    Also, if I have had the radio OFF and / or the Wireless connection 'disabled" on purpose, both of my Netbooks require a full hard boot before they will again connect to WiFi.

    Hope this helps!
    Good Luck
