Acer Aspire 5100 dropped on the floor and died

There is no beep, no boot, no nothing!
I disassembled everything looking for broken parts but found nothing.

Fan is the only thing that works.

    I already removed every plug, board, etc and nothing happened.

    But...What do you mean by reset the memory? Just remove it and plug again? (Already did that!)



    Any other suggestion?

    Yes, that is what I meant. Unfortunately it sounds like you're going to have to replace the motherboard.

    Try removing and reseating the memory.

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.

Hope this help.

Hi i have a acer aspire 5100 on turn on i get 1 long beep and 2 short beeps.the fan is on and i can open cd drive but nothing on screen i took the ram out and that stoped the beeps but still no screen help...



Hi,

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...

My Acer Aspire 5100 laptop won't boot. At startup the Acer logo is shown and than drops to a black window with flickering cursor (with now and than a loud bleep). Can anybody tell me what the problem is...


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.

Usb ports wont work


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.

ACER ASPIRE 5100 WONT BOOT


Your harddisk MBR sector might be damaged, google fix mbr and resetup your harddisk mbr. After that it most likely will boot.

Boot problem


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:

Acer aspire 5100 - screen is turned off, cant turn it back on


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.
