    One other thing I have seen in other laptops, If you look at the screen in a bright light can you make out anything on the monitor, the reason I ask is sometimes a tiny switch that shuts off the display when the lid is closed will stick due to dirt or misalignment due to a bump or loose hinge where it's located. Just a thought.

Have you tried a cold start, unplug, remove battery, hold down on/off button for 10 seconds, replace battery, plug in start normally. If that fails re start while tapping F-8 repeatedly until it boots into Boot options. Repeat if necessary. that's a good place to start

    I'm sure you made sure there was no media in the machine, no DVD,CD, USB etc. Can you remove the harddrive,Test it with a Adapter, mine is a ULTRA B 2.0 to IDE/SATA Cable Adapter, connect it to another computer and verify it's in working order?The next thing would be to reload the HDD. Do you have a Factory Disk?You could a also search online for a repair OS download and burn it to disk it has repair options.

    the hard drive will not blink, no image on the screen, cdrom does nothing, power button lights, fan runs, battery charges, but nothing else. i feel acre will need to be called, and money will need to be paid to get this fixed.

    Have you tried a System repair disk found online for Windows 7, I think you have 64bit, that's what you specs say. You can try to force the machine to boot from the DVD/CD drive. Question: Can you ,press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly tapping at pre-boot to enter the recovery option? Have you opened the laptop and re-seated the HDD and memory? A Repair Disk ISO Download can be found here:http://maximumpcguides.com/windows-7/cre... Keep me posted.

Black or blue screen on power up. does not boot


If you have a multimeter, it'll be easy.
Plug the Acer Aspire 7741z charger in, test the connector of the adapter with a multimeter, remember, you only need to measure the DC voltage of the adapter.
If the readings are close to the specification on it's label, then the charger is OK.
If you do not have a multimeter,
Turn the computer completely off and remove the battery,
then check out whether you can
power up the Notebook with AC power only (no battery installed).
If you can power up your laptop, then the battery is dead.
If you still cannot power up your laptop,the adapter defective and you need replace it.

USB Mouse NOT Detected On Acer Aspire Laptop


lol no it has nothing to do with your bios. I'm surprised that if you know your way around a bios that you would head there. You need a driver for the mouse. In case you do know more than i am giving credit then here's what to do if you already have the driver. Go into device manager and delete anything under the mouse section that is not your touchpad. then plug the usb mouse back in.
