Question about Acer Aspire 6920-6621 Notebook

1 Answer

Problem with HDD, I think

I have a problem with my harddisc, as it gets stuck, totally out of nowhere.. When it happens the light indicating my HD, just lights constantly. It gets stuck at totally random, and it is NOT when I run a specific program etc.
Sorry for my bad english, I'm from Norway, hehe:)

I'm a bit newbie at PC and BIOS's, but I have read that the problem could due to some setting in the BIOS. It has been a problem all along.

acer aspire 6920g

Windows Vista 32 bit
Intel Core 2 Duo (2.1 GHz, 800 MHz FSB, 3 MB L2 cache) 4GB DDR2 320 GB HDD Nvidia GeForce 9500M GS I hope you have an answer:)

Dell inspiron 1545 14 beeps (more details inside).

This indicates a motherboard issue, sub out the ram memory one at a time, test each as you go, if no change! The motherboard will need to be replaced, or the laptop.

Won't Turn on, not even when connected to mains - LED lights on but no HDD drive light

The HDD can go at anytime without warning, does the Asus logo come up on the screen?

The power light comes on and the harddrive doesnt seem to spin up and the indicator just flashes

i think your HDD doesn't work any more, this can be a problem in the HDD, i think the Disk stuck in his cage, (sorry, but me English is not that good ;). maybe you can fix it by open it in a room without sunlights, UV can be fatal for hardware. look carefully if it stucks, look at the little "ARM" that reads the disk by moving over it, it can be that this one press to hard on the disk and that the disk don't spin anymore. otherwise there can be a lot more problems why it is stuck, hope it will work out for you, good luck.

My qosmio av600 will not boot the harddrive light only comes on for a second then goes out.

Please go to BIOS and check whether the Harddisc is showing or not. IF it is not there you need to replace the HDD with new one.

Some times you can't enter the BIOS also. Then check the RAM. Clean it ann use or buy new one.

Please vote for me.

My acer aspire battery

first, you must release your harddisc drive. and see what is happen for next minutes, after you insert that batteray and plug in your adaptor, to your laptop. See indicator lamp, blinking = still charging into baterai. Light ON = full charging. And charging process, see your laptop, what did you press any button for charging batteray?
If you still press any button, clean all hardware inside of bottom case and upper case.
Sometimes dirty can disturb that process.

Sounds like start, but screen stays dark,

Not even beeping? Hard to tell from such little info. HDD doesn't work, CPU stays cold, that would indicate a motherboard problem, but then it would beep most of the times. It can be a a problem with your screen, but that doesn't add upp with the HDD, and the CPU staying cool (bye the way, how do you know that?)
I think you should take it to someone who can take a closer look on it.

My laptop acer aspire 3100 crashed. it was fine before i turned the laptop off, but when I tried to turn it on again it got stuck starting windows up, I have Vista. I waited for some time but after 30 min....

Hello rijotomas,
First you can try to pull the battery out and unplug the power adapter for a minute. Then plug the laptop back in without the battery. Then try to turn it back on.

Repair harddisc have data change from ntsf format to fat

If you in fact formatted your HDD you need to take the drive to a drive recovery center or get the tools to hook the drive up to a working laptop/desktop and use recovery software like Ontrack Recovery Manager.
