Overheating. Try using canned air and blowing out vents. If you are comfortable with it, take the laptop apart and clean it out. If not, contact a local computer shop that can do it for you. If cleaning doesn't do it, the CPU heatsink will need reseated or the CPU will need replaced.

I have a black screen only noise i hear is cd start up & fan than nothing


Most likely this problem is related to the motherboard failure and the motherboard has to be replaced. Just in case, try removing RAM modules one by one. Test the laptop with each module separately. If it doesn't help, probably it's bad motherboard.

My aspire 5542 wont start up .... the power button light is on but the screen is black...there is no noise if the hdd work.. plss help


Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

Hi Guys, you must be getting this a lot, but i am going nuts! I have a Hitachi 5K320 250Gb Harddrive that for some reason I cant get in anymore. I have very important stuff on there that i need for my...


I know it sounds a little nuts but try it with the drive upside down or on either side or on end supported by some books, you can also try cooling it off in a fridge for a while. when a drive starts to go and starts making clicks and vibe noises you have very little time to get everything off. before you try anything make sure you have space to save the files if you do get in.
Also look into Puppy Linux it runs in ram without running the hard drive,
Puppy may be able to read your drive.

I'll check in with you later, off to work.

Is it worth upgrading the 500MB memory of a 4 years-old Acer aspire laptop? its used only for web-surfing and emailing purposes.. no downloads..


You BET! Max it out when you buy the RAM. This is where all of your open OS files and running programs reside when the computer is on and running. It is very fast live memory - and when it fills up during use, anything else that cannot fit goes back to the hard drive in whats called "Virtual memory" or "swap file" - significantly slower.
I can say with certainty that if you max out your ram everything will work much faster! and that hourglass will become a scarce event.

Internal fast clicking sound and VERY SLOW computer


Your hard disk might have physical bad sectors so replace it with the new one. RAM has nothing to do with this type of sound.

My TOSHIBA laptop won't turn on


flashing three times means something physically wrong with ur laptop. could be fault with ur power supply, Hard drive or ram. 
- with the battery, plug in ur power supply and check if ur LED is glowing and the laptop is charging well.
if the problem persists,
- reset the RAM and the Hard drive, [ for this take out the ram and Hard drive and put them back again].
if still the problem persists, take it to repair. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- u dont have to worry bout the backup in ur laptop. a simple solution would be to get a 2.5 inch hard drive enclosure, install ur harddrive into that, connect it to a different computer and back it up!, but be sure what type of Harddrive u have , is it a IDE harddrive or a SATA harddrive.

Power ON/ nothing on screen-


Hi,
enter the bios setup, if you can boot the computer/laptop. Usually F2 on bootup, it will say entering Setup.
Then scroll through the pages to see if your hard-drive is recognised by the system.

Computer Not Booting Up


Are you running one or two video cards?
If just one, 550w should be plenty of power. Double check ALL connections and make sure that the ram and all add-in cards are FULLY seated.
Also check to see if the video card requires its own power plug. If it does, it will have a connector on it for you to attach a lead from the power supply.
Also make sure that you have both power connectors plugged into the mainboard, theres one thats only 4 pins and then of course the larger one of 24 pins.
If all connection look good, then start with the basics. Break it down to just the power supply, mainboard, cpu, one stick of ram and the video card... unplug everything else from the mainboard including drive cables and any add-in cards. And check to make sure you processor is seated properly as well as the ram and video.
Let me know what you find.

Acer has the tendancy to blow it's regulator circuit, it makes a fast tik-tik-tik sound, if so, send in for repairs, nothing you can do to fix it. JJ
