Question about Acer Aspire One AOA150-1983 Notebook PC

10 Answers

Whenever I press any key, the computer goes blank

I bought an Acer aspire one. Everything seemed to run well the first two days. Later, it began going blank whenever I pressed any key on the keyboard. As soon as I press it, the screen goes black and the whole computer stops running. The screen goes black instantly. It seems to have turned off, but the power button light stays on.
What can I do to fix it?

    Dipu007's answer did not work at all. After holding down the power button for 10 seconds, the power button`s light just turned off and the whole machine remained off.

    Any time I press any key, the machine apparently goes off instantly, less the power button. Its light remains lighted green.

When you turn on the machine does it make any beeping sounds? If so how many times does it beep?

I fixed 4 aspire one so far (it is a relatively new model), they are nice little laptops, and they use to work fine, but yours has a factory defect.

If the laptopo freezes and goes blank whenever you press a key, then there is a short on keyboard/ribbon cable/or connector.

Send the laptop back and have it replaced.

I could be a loose wire or component, i would return it to the retailer to contact the manufacturer for troubleshooting steps to this unusual problem you are encountering.

Turn the pc off and on press F-8 to force safemode.
Constantly press F-8! Once you get it to boot in safemode you then need to type MSCONFIG in the run box and bring up that screen, Then click on system restore and follow the steps. when it comes back on you need do a disc cleanup. Get rid of the temp internet files cluttlering the pc and then use lavasoft ad-aware to get the bugs out the PC. That is what I would try.

Hello alejo47

Is this brand new? If so, simply return it as this isn't normal, could be that the bios needs an update or it could be a bigger and more expensive problem. If you can't return it, let me know and I will run you through everything that it could be and what you can try.

I have an acer aspire 5315 and the screen goes black I have tried to go into set up and I have taken out bateries etc but it's still not working . Any help is greatly appreciated thanks


Hello mariawint589,

The following instructions are from the Acer Aspire 5315 user's guide (page 35):

The computer's power management system automatically blanks the screen to save power. Press any key to turn the display back on, three hings might be the cause:

*The brightness level might be too low. Press <Fn>+<right-arrow key> (Increase) to adjust the brightness level.

*The display device might be set to an external monitor. Press the display toggle hotkey <Fn>+<F5> to toggle the display back to the computer

*If the sleep indicator is lit, the computer is in sleep mode. Press and release the power button to resume.

If this solution is helpful please click a thumbs-up rating.

Have a great day,

The screen goes blank


Is it going black after the windows desktop appears? Try doing a repair installation with your windows xp cd. If you don't know how to do it then email me and I'll explain.

ACER ASPIRE 9410-4933 LAPTOP SCREEN GOES BLANK DURING P.O.S.T.


Were you working with laptop in battery mode, not plugged in a/c power? You could have drained your internal DC battery & at the same time damaged your B.I.O.S. [button type] battery inside the laptop. that the computer goes into POST means that it is trying to FIND itself, not finding the graphics card, it does not know what type of 'picture' ( usually black screen with ""DOS"" words ) to show you.
1st- turn laptop on, you should see name,what type of cpu (the "inner " workings of computer) and sometimes the amount of memory (clicking like a digital timer) If not, don't worry. Press f1,or DELETE, ESCAPE (ESC), or read your book to find the KEY to puts you into SETUP. There should be a menu and somewhere there are DEFAULT. USE THOSE! Reboot to see results.

ACER apire 5050 screen keeps going blank/freezing


Hold down the "Fn" Key and press the "F4" Key, wait a min, press the Enter key on the keyboard... Do this when it happens, the problem is the ribbon cable in the laptop that goes to the screen is loose, If you want to fix permanently, send in for repair to Acer if under warranty.

Acer Aspire 5100 will not start right


It seems your hard drive has corupted.
This sucks, all you have to do is push ALT F10 and then go through the reseting menu, you will loose everything on there though except the original data.
