Re: Laptop Wont Boot

Great News! fixed the laptop! I went to compuzone Circuit city and Best Buy and had a variety of diagnoses such as the mobo the lcd and the hard drive. It turns out it was 1 stick of ram. Its the craziest thing so if your laptop EVER goes dark check the Ram individually it worked

Re: Laptop Wont Boot

Does it sound like it's starting up at all? Is the problem that only the screen turns blank? You might have just disabled the standard output. Try pressing Fn (bottom left on the keyboard) and the F5 on the top a few times to see if the screen toggles back on. You might also try to run it without the battery, and on the battery only in case it's a faulty battery or power supply that causes the problem. If not, it sounds lsike a serious problem, so if there is any chance of the waranty still being valid I'd call acer support asap.

Acer aspire 5536 wont boot up

remove power cord, pull out battery, press and hold the power button for 10 full seconds. Wait 1 minute, place battery back in and then power cord. Then try it. This should work. If by chance it does not, check your memory chips because an effective one will prevent boot up. You can remove one at a time and try booting to see if one is faulty.

My Acer Aspire 1500 laptop wont pass startup.

It seems that your laptop hardware is good and it seems that it is a software issue.

  1. Boot in safe mode: When your laptop start, press the F8 key. then it will ask you which boot device to boot from, browse using the arrow keys and chose something with HDD and press ENTER and then press the F8 key again. Then you will be given a boot option and choose SAFE MODE.
  2. While in SAFE MODE, try to uninstall your newly installed software that might be causing the laptop to hung up.
  3. Also, click Start => Run then type: msconfig.
  4. Go to the Startup Tab and uncheck the many programs that looks not necessary to load while windows is loading. The program like Yahoo Messenger, Skype can be opened manually so uncheck them if present.
  5. Click Apply then OK.
  6. Restart your laptop and see if it helps.

Laptop wont switch on fully

Did you press F8 as you boot up to get boot up options and did try the Last Known good Configuration and Safe Mode?
If these didn't work I suggest you re-install Windows.

My laptop wont go to desktop on startup.

Here is what you need to do
1. Power on the machine
2. At the white ACER BIOS screen, hold the “Alt” key and press the “F10” key simultaneously to start Acer eRecovery
3. Once eRecovery has loaded, you can cancel the process and now your laptop should boot normally or you can click “Restore to Factory Default Settings”
4. Click “OK” to continue .
5. From here, the eRecovery process will update all the data on the C: drive and restore a fully functional factory image (approximately 10 minutes).
6. Once eRecovery has run, press “OK” to reboot unit

My Aspire 5315 will not start

I actually contacted Acer by email for this and got a reply in less than a day.

Try the steps below for a power reset, to eliminate a hardware problem with your notebook:

1. Disconnect the AC adapter from the laptop.

2. Remove the battery.

3. Press and hold the power button for about 30 seconds then release it. (You will not see anything happen)

4. Connect the AC Adapter to the laptop. Make sure the AC Adapter is plugged in.

5. Turn the computer on as normal.

6. Once Windows boots, insert the battery.

If the notebook still does not power on, we recommend the notebook be serviced by our authorized repair depot.

Hi please help me with my acer 3003 wont boot

try to power up with power cord only and see if it works. If no lights turn on than your motherboard is dead. If it turns on and nothing happens make sure there is memory installed(RAM). If it turns on and you see windows screen than it shuts off than your operating system needs to be installed again. Also, you can try booting in safe mode by hitting f8 when you initially start your computer and see if it stays on and if it does you have a virus most likely. Good luck.
