Problem Bringing up Acer Aspire 3680

My Acer Aspire 3680 has began to require (usually) a three-step process to get it to come up after powering it off for the night.

First I turn it on. I hear noise like it's going to come up, but after about 30 seconds, it turns itself off.

Next I press the power button again. This time I see the normal Acer screen, but it's a very dim screen. It then turns totally dark while I continue to hear the hard drive working, but it never comes up. So after about a minute. I press the power button and it turns off.

Finally (third time) I hit the power button again. This time Acer comes up brightly as is normal, and within a few seconds, I am able to log on.

As long as I just lock the keyboard when away from the computer, there are no further problems, but it's when I shut it down, and try to bring it up the next day that the problems begin.

At first, I was told it was because I had an external keyboard and mouse plugged in to USB ports. So I unplugged them. And leaving them unplugged until I brought the computer up worked for awhile, but eventually, it begin to require turning it on/off at least 3 times befure it came up, even though no periferials are plugged in.

This is a mystery to me and somewhat annoying becuase it takes quite a bit of time to get going in the morning. Any light that anyone can shed on this problem will be greatly appreciated. Still need a solution for this problem? Yes

Hi i think the problem is with the battery or power supply.When you power up the laptop without the external keyboard and mouse everything is ok, yes?Check that the battery is charging properly and that the charger is doing its job.

If you were to log on to the acer.com web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download if available, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers, for spare parts and service, Driver downloads and Installation Instructions as required.

This is the best way of ensuring up to date drivers for your system and they are free of charge!

There are no XP drivers to be found with Microsoft as XP is no longer supported.

Some manufacturers may have a limited number of Drivers still listed.

I hope this helps.
