    Its about 3 years old so the warrent has gone [just my luck]

    Its weird, I've read articles about this on the internet, but no one has a solution.

    I've tried it with the battery in, and with it out, and plugged into the wall. I press the power button, it turns green, then you hear the fan boot up, the screen stays black, and then 2-3 clicks, and its not powering up, but the power light is still on.

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

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.

Set the bios password and forgotten whaat it is


You need to preform a Acer Aspire One BIOS Recovery

instructions here: http://macles.blogspot.com/2008/08/acer-aspire-one-bios-recovery.html

Summary:
You need a flash drive formatted as fat (Right click on drive. Click format. Select fat for file system. Press start)
Down load the bios 3310 from here: http://macles.blogspot.com/p/acer-aspire-one-bios.html
Extract all files. Put both FLASHIT.EXE and the BIOS file with FD suffix in the root directory of the flash drive. The files must not be in a folder. Rename the BIOS file to ZG5IA32.FD before proceeding. It only works with this exact filename.

Make sure laptop is off and has battery and power plugged in.

Plug in flash drive to netbook. Press Fn and Esc simultaneously, keep them pressed and press the power button. Release Fn+Esc after a few seconds. The power button starts blinking at this point. Press it once. The netbook will now access the files on the flash drive and initiate flashing the BIOS. After a while the power button stops blinking, and the netbook reboots by itself. Wait patiently.

If it doesn't reboot, but keeps blinking, wait at least a few minutes before turning it off, and try again.

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 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. You can set this up for service yourself by going to www.acerpanam.com; click on the link for Depot Repair.

For out of warranty products please call 1-866-621-2237. Hours of operation are 7am-8pm CST, Mon-Fri, and Sat-Sun 8am-5pm CST excluding holidays.

Laptop will not power up


Try removing the battery..then attempt a power up. make sure there are no USB devices connected as well. Take some time, it happened to me, it was caused by a non USB compliant lamp! The machine would not start at all.
