Question about PC Laptops

Laptop isnt starting black screen keeps loading for ages!

I have an Acer Aspire 7520-5839 and It doesnt boot up just has a black screen that loads on forever.

Ok, so this is what happened. I was told updating my BIOS to the new version 1.33 will optimise the use of the laptop when its on battery so i will have more time remaining on my battery. So i went to the acer site download the new BIOS which was 1.33 and i updated my old one 1.07 to 1.33. After the Flashing of the BIOS was finished it said it was going to restart my laptop. So it restarted and then it when boot up again.
Now everytime i turn on my laptop it goes fast the Acer Logo loading screen and then just goes blank loading on for hours. So i 110% know its a BIOS problem or i cud me wrong

Then someone told me to do the following:

1. http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_7520.html

2. Do you have a XP CD? If so, boot the Recovery Console by entering R the at the first opportunity.

From the command prompt, can you see the C: drive by entering dir c:

If so, type chkdsk /r and press Enter

Wait for it to complete. This can take awhile on a large drive so be patient.

Type fixboot and press Enter

Reboot and see if XP will boot correctly now.


But i dont have xp installed and i have vista.

And i tried that and then i got into the Recovery console it was like wat is the Admin password

This is what i tried:

acer(my main accounts password which is the administrator cuz i enabled it in CMD)

1234

****(four blank spaces)


none of these worked and i tried so many more password none worked and now im looking for two things eather to bypass the recovery console admin pass thingy or find another way to get my boot up fix and if this is not a boot up problems please tell me what to do so i can go into my laptop normally.
thanks in advanced

My Acer Aspire V5-571 does not load up it shows acer screen when turning on the laptop then loading floating ball comes on screen for a few seconds then black screen ? can any one please help ?


Hi Jim,

this seems like a no boot / no video kind off issue and mostly is coz of corruptions in softwares or drivers, try booting the computer in safe mode. if it does, then take a data backup. i would not recommend experimenting in this issue as it can crash the computer.
hence call 1-877-805-1027 for expert help.

Black screen and windows won't load


It's possible that Windows got corrupted if you can enter the Setup page. Will you also try to boot up on Safe by pressing F8 during boot up. If Windows loads up on Safe mode, you may try System restore. If not, run a repair using the recovery disc of windows so you can recover all your files. If none of these resolved the issue, you have to do clean installation using the CD.

My acer 5630 laptop does not boot up


Try reinstalling the OS with your restore disks. It might be that you have HDD failure in which case you would need to replace the HDD.

I can not get my Acer Aspire 5920 to load after turning on.


Try to see if it will boot in safe mode, by pressing F8 while the laptop boots up. If it allows you to boot in safe mode, try to do a system restore when you know that laptop was working with no problems. You can do this by clicking on start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and choose a date and time when you know that the laptop was working with no problems. If this does not work or you cannot boot in safe mode (be aware that everything will look big in safe mode and when the computer reboots if asked how you want to start windows, choose start windows normally), try doing a recovery. This will restore your computer to the factory default settings when you purchased it. You can do this by booting the computer, when the acer screen appears hold down the ALT key and continuously press F10, this will open the recovery manager and you can restore it from there.

I hope this helps

Acer Aspire 5050 Won't Boot.


Your problem could be windows vista isnot installed properly
i assume in the beginning, your laptop come with windows xp.
if you want to go back to windows xp, you can still use alt+f10, as long as you don't delete the recover partition.
Just boot and press Alt+F10, it'll give you recover screen.
