It definetly soundas like Hard Drive failure as previosly said. the hard drives are inexpensive so just look for a 2.5" hdd and away you go.

Theres a good chance that the hard drive platletes and parking head have been damaged, although this is not a huge problem to replace, as long as your screen is working ok, then it is worth replacing. you can access it on the underside of the casing, in the largest compartment, remove all screws and the hard drive will be held in with more screws.

Acer 3000 Series Laptop Splash screen does not appear at startup when pressing F2 on the post page. Therefore unable to acces bios. Has e-manager but cannot access bios through it either. Welcome all...


It sounds like the Acer logo has been turned off in the bios settings. As soon as you hit the power button, start tapping the F2 key until you see the test appear "entering setup". Once you are in the BIOS, look for the Logo settings as far as being visible during Boot up. I've seen this setting on other systems so I am thinking the Acer should be similiar.

Acer aspire t135 rebooting problem at startup constantly


I am assuming that it starts up, goes to the windows splash screen, the reboots and starts the whole process again?
Try to boot into safe mode: When you see the first screen, hit the F8 Key repeatedly, which should bring up a menu of boot options. Choose the safe mode option, and hit enter. If it boots into safe mode, I would start by running a checkdisk on the hard drive. Here's how:
Hit the Windows key and the letter R, in the prompt that comes up type in cmd and hit enter.
This should bring up the console. type in chkdsk /r/f in the prompt. It should say the drive is locked, and ask if you want to run on the next startup. Type y and enter. Then reboot. The checkdisk should run, and may be able to recover any bad sectors it finds. If it finds lots of problems, a more thorough diagnostic should probably be done, as the hard drive may be failing.

My Acer Aspire 3000 has a blank screen


I suggest you check the settings of your bios. Normally this happens if your Hard drive is unreadable. Change the settings of the boot function to first boot on Hard disk and try to disable all other bootable hardwares like CD or network card.


Hope this helps.

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.
