Acer Aspire 5315 won't boot, black screen

I have an Acer Aspire 5315 and it has a black screen when I try to boot it. I have connected it to a good monitor and it didn't help. I replaced the hard drive with a good hard drive, and nothing. I tried to boot without the battery and it didn't work. I tried to boot with a boot disk, too.

When I hit the power button, it makes a bit of a chugging sound and then stops after a minute or so. It doesn't beep. The fan seems to be starting up.

I'm stumped.

    I am having the exact same problem, it started after i let the battery die right down. Ive only had it as new for about 3 months now and if it is broken and can't be fixed just wanted all my files off it as they are really important. The night it died i had been downloading songs and wasn't sure if this was the problem. If someone could help, it would be brilliant

I had the same symptoms on friends laptop. She had nothing to lose so gave me carte blanc.

Took out battery (to eliminate as problem) plugged in power, and powered up

Power light OK, HD flashed, CD flashed, then black screen. Powered down.

Did the following:

1) took cover off of fan/circuit board (see http://www.insidemylaptop.com/ for details). (4 screws)

2) take out fan (3 screws) and find huge amount of gunk on cooling fins at fan disch. Blew out with compressed air. Also cleaned fan blades.(reboot shows didn't fix.)

3) Repeated step 2, Pulled out memory sticks and cleaned terminals by rubbing with lint free cloth. Replaced memory sticks.

4) System boots normally. Replaced battery. Boots normally.

DAMN I'M GOOD!

    Excellent tip. Saved me buying a new laptop. It looked like a band of felt stuck in the fan. I'd say that was kicking off some temp sensor or something. Mine would run for random amounts of time, but now it's rockin' again! Huge thanks to rpic257

Cracked lcd sct reen acer aspire 5315 model


I would start by doing a search on Ebay. Often times you can get parts or a damaged laptop with parts for a very reasonable price. I just did a search for your laptop model and found a damaged Acer Aspire 5315 for $81. As of this posting on 10/31 at 9:10 am CST time, the auction ends in 2 hrs.

After doing a quick internet search, I found a web site called http://www.screencountry.com and I saw a monitor for your model listed at $99.

Acer aspire 5310 the screen just blank and not


Possibly the monitor is defective - usually most laptops have a blue plug at the back for an external monitor, if plugging in a normal monitor brings up a screen, then likely the laptop monitor is defective. If you get a splash screen and bios info on trying to start it,it indicates your windows is defective or has lost it's start-up files - a windows reinstall will fix that.
