Sounds like fans are going bad. if you can open the bottom side where the fans are located you can replace it. plug in.

Acer aspire 5100 when a laptop does not start with power plug on and no battery what could be the issue


Do you have a voltmeter? The first thing I would check is to see if you are getting 19VDC coming out of the charger. The on then off when you have the battery in sounds like your battery is almost out of juice and the fact that nothing happens when you plug it in without the battery indicates to me that your power adapter is not working.

My 5100 acer over heats and the curer runs on


OverheatingWhen the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

Try removing the battery and running the power directly through the power outlet. HP laptop dv6000 has the same problem.

Acer Aspire 5100 laptop's screen remains black at start-up


This is probably a hardware issue with the monitor. Just to make sure, uninstall, and reinstall the monitor's driver. If that doesn't fix it, it's a hardware issue.

You will have to either take it to a shop, or contact the manufacturer (your computer should be under warranty if you've had it for less than a year).

My acer aspire one zg5 wont turn on


I assume there is something wrong with power supply...Get an electric meter and test the adapter for dc output..I think the bit that connect to the laptop may be worn out and hence losing connection..Try to play with the adapter end when connecting to the laptop and hold on firmly on it and watched if any light comes on.If it stays for more than 2 sec the you know it is faulty..That is an alternate option is you don't have a meter..
