SOURCE: aspire 5610 problems with motherboard

Very simply can be some loose hardware.

First thing is to take the battery out and unplug it from the wall. Plug it back in w/o the battery and try turning it on. If it boots great, if not unplug it to shut it off immediately and try turning it on again. Lot of no boot issues are because the system is in a failed sleep/hibernate and just wont get out of it until you do the above.

Try re-seating the RAM (hopefully it's not under the keyboard or somewhere hard to get). The RAM they ship with these units is low yield stuff so even though the RAM is good, and the slot is good, they're not making a good connection cause it's cheap stuff so you may want to try a different RAM chip all together.

Sometimes it can be a loose processor which is usually a lot harder to get to unless your savvy.

Mine does this but what I found was that if you hold the power button down for about 10 seconds when you are turning it on, it works.

SOURCE: Start up stuck on Acer Arcade Deluxe screen

if you can boot into safe mode by pressing f8 at startup, check the startup folder for acer arcade and remove it if present.From your start button go to (start-programs-startup).

another option is to check the run key in the registry: one caveat though - please don't mess with things in the registry you don't understand. Deleting or changing unknown registry keys can result in a non-booting pc.

please stick strictly to my instructions and you will be fine. We're going to look and see if windows is calling the acer arcade to run at boot time:

click your start button and type 'regedit' (no quotes in the start search field. A window titled 'registry editor' will appear. Now, to expand a field in the registry, we left-click on the triangle on the left side of the field.

so, click the triangle beside HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
go down to 'software' and click the triangle beside it. go down to Microsoft and click the triangle, go to windows and click the triangle, go to current version and click the triangle, go to run and click on the run folder, not the triangle beside it.

Now look in the list of items in the run folder. these are all items that run when your pc boots. If you see an item with 'acer arcade' or just 'arcade' in the name, then delete it. DO NOT DELETE ANY OTHER REGISTRY KEYS....PLEASE!
if you found acer arcade and removed it then reboot and all should be better. if not, boot to safe mode again, click start button and type in 'msconfig' - no quotes. go to the startup tab, and again only uncheck anything with acer arcade in the name.

Hope this helps!!

SOURCE: acer aspire one stuck on windows safe mode restart

If you have the option of going to a command prompt (on the choose how to start "text" screen), do it, and type at the C:> fdisk /mbr then press the ENTER key. This may fix things. Also, try removing the battery when the computer is off, wait about a minute, then replace it and start computer. This actually helps sometimes.

You will have to get your power button unstuck. I do not know what type of button you have but if you would like to at least get your PC on without it instantly turning off, you can remove the power switch connector from the motherboard. You will eventually need to have the switch unstuck, or replaced though.

Can't turn it off


hi, ok you only have a few options
hold the power button in for about 10seconds should turn it off.
if it dont then you can remove the battery from the laptop by turning it upside down and theres a slide button to remove it. if you use the laptop on the mains without the battery, all you need to do is pull out the mains cable and it will go off.
to fix problem, go into safe mode, click run, type msconfig. click start up on top right, and untick anything that you dont need loading on startup (if you disable the wrong one it wont do any damage, as long as u only untick ones in that start up group.

Have a nice new year
