Question about Acer Aspire 9500 Notebook

Open Question

I have an acer aspire 1641WLMi. Today it started just powering off (i mean just completely shutting down without warning) and after it is off i try to power back on by using the power button and it doesnt work, unless you wait atleast half an hour. If you have AC after its shut itself off then it will automatically power back on when it see's fit, but only lights are on, no Acer screen comes on. Otherwise, under battery, you have to wait the 10-30min. This has happened 4-5 times today and im really stumped! And to make things worst, now my WLAN is not working. i checked in Device manager and it is showing as normal but i cant seem to make a connection, and yes i have the WLAN button below the Mousepad On. Please help, David F.

My Acer Laptop battery shuts down completely at 40 - 30

Go to Power Options --> On the plan you are using select change plan settings --> Change advanced power settings --> Scroll down till you reach battery and click the + next to it to expand the settings --> Where it says Critical battery level and Critical battery action (on battery) make sure that the level is at 5% and the action is to hibernate. If it's set to do nothing, it will keep running until it's out of battery and completely shut off. Plugging the AC adapter would give it more power. If that isn't the problem, check your battery's connection and consider replacing the battery.

Acer aspire one when I power up, it shuts down after about 20 seconds. With or without the systems disk, do I have a bad hard drive?

It looks like your hard drive's failed, you don't say which Windows you're running ? Have you tried a recovery disc?

My acer aspire one laptop screen is completely white how can i fix it

Power down the laptop (press and hold the power button).

Try turning it back on, and hitting the F8 key to get boot options. Start in "Safe Mode" or some other configuration that worked and see if that fixes the issue.

If the screen does not show anything at all, try connecting the laptop to an external monitor while starting up.

My Acer Aspire 5810TG does not shut down on battery. No problem on AC

Until you can locate the underlying cause of the problem (could be mechanical, or your particular battery power configuration settings), you can try this:

Open up a command prompt window (Start Menu > Accessories > System; or, Start Menu > Click "Run" > Type cmd in the box and press enter)

Once the command prompt session has opened, type "shutdown -s" (without the quotation marks) and press enter.

You should see a box pop up warning that shut down will occur in 30 seconds. After the countdown completes, your computer should begin the shutdown routine. This command works for restarting the computer as well, just change "-s" to "-r"

Can't boot up Acer 1641 WLMi. Sometimes I get the Acer logo on screen, other times screen is completely dark. When the Acer logo does come on, I see F2 option listed on bottom of screen but it doesn't...

Hold the f2 key down and keep it down... It will bring you to the bios which will allow you to boot in safe-mode or by using rescue cd or partition in your hard drive. Your hard drive may have problems or has crashed.

I can not brighen screen on Acer aspire 1641

I have the same problem at times. Even when I try fn + right arrow, the screen will start to brighten then go right back to dull. At first it only did this when the power outlet was not plugged in, but now it sometimes does it even when it is plugged in. If I reset, it usually fixes the problem.
