Re: Acer Aspire 5100 dropped on the floor and died
Hello,try to clean the memory card edge connector with eraser. Sometimes just reseating the memory card won't help coz the connector itself is coated with varnish like coat. When you only reseat it the original placing will not almost fall at exactly the same place(good contact connection). Cleaning it with eraser will free it of that coat and it will have a wider probability of good contact with the memory connector.

Indicates a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information.Video (Mono/CGA Display Circuitry) issue.Try to disconnect/connect the video card. If nothing happens, there's a possiblity that the problem is with the LCD cables or the LCD itself.
Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...
be sure to remove all other external devices hooked to your pc. just leave ac adapter plugged in. then try if it will boot to safemode by pressing F8 upon seeing the Acer Logo. if it will boot, what you need is reinstall your OS. if it will still not boot then you need to replace hdd.
Go to Control Panel, System, Hardware, and Device Manager. Look for serial ports/USB ports. Verify installed and active. If not, go to Bios 'setup' at start-up and activate from there. Be sure to save and exit even if you change nothing--otherwise everything returns to default.
You would need to note whether the 8 blinks are in a specific order; this is probably equivalent to beep codes and the spacing (grouping) of the beeps/blinks may tell you what problem you are having (other than having clumsy buddies).
Check to see if they are grouped in some recognizable manner such as 3-3-2 and then you would have to check with Acer to decode the sequence.
Depending on whose BIOS is installed in your model, the 8 blinks equally spaced may be valid too and tell you the nature of the problem..
An example of the 'beep' codes can be seen here, midway down the page:
The bios beep codes indicate the video card is not working, so you won't see anything on the screen.
Your video card is either dead, or is not contacting the board correctly.
If you are keen to open it up I will offer instructions to assist you. But in reality, your safest bet is to take it to a laptop shop and get them to do it. There are a lot of tiny screws in these things.
