Hiya

Try pressing Fn F5 or Fn F6, these usually turn the screen off and on. They usually have little blue rectangles on them, representing the screen. If another F key has the rectangles, try that one while holding the Fn Key. As it froze on you first, it could be more sinister, ie a hardware fault, You could try removing the power and battery for 20 seconds, then try powering on again once you replace them. If all this fails, i'm afraid it ack to the shop for a repair.

I hope this helps.

My zg5 laptop battery will not power my laptop.battery is new. fully charged.


Hi John,

For the sake of clarity: the battery which will not charge/power your Acer Aspire One Netbook is the original battery that came with the Acer, is this correct?
Assuming that the answer is Yes then replacement with a NON Acer, universal battery is the only solution.
Reputable internet shops, such as Amazon, have these at around $50...
DANGER; Due to the recall of thousands of Acer (HP and others) batteries with a possible fire hazard please dispose of promptly and properly.
Best Buy has a Recycle program:

My lenovo G550 appears not to charge when the charger is plugged in despite turning the mains power on and off to see if power is getting though and the blue neon light showing on the mains...


Hi m529,

I see you are having issues with you G550 charging.

You mentioned that the light on the charger is lit up but then it suddenly switches Off, and you also mentioned that the charge still has a light but the power is somewhat low despite of a fully lit up charger Light.

Have you tried draining the power from the system?

  • Remove the battery and the Charger or AC Adapter as well call it from the G550 then press and hold down the power button for 10-15 seconds to drain power from the system motherboard.
  • Once drained connect the AC adapter but do not connect the battery yet, then turn the Laptop ON to see if the system will power ON using the AC adapter/Charger if it powers up then there is no problem with the AC adapter/charger.
  • After testing the AC adapter if it is working power down the Laptop doing a normal shut down.
  • Once shut down or turned Off insert the Battery back in the Laptop then turn the Laptop ON using the battery only without the AC adapter/charger see if the system will turn ON using the Battery only.
  • If the Laptop powers On using the battery alone with out the AC adapter then the battery is most likely working as well on the issue.
  • Now power down the Laptop then connect the AC adapter to the Laptop with the Battery in the Laptop as well then turn the system ON again see if the problem will Occur again having the battery and the AC adapter/charger if the Problem happens with both Battery and AC adapter on the Laptop then the problem is the Motherboard, most probably the motherboard is having issues relaying power from the AC adapter to the battery and may be sent to the Depot for repairs.
I suggest that you call Lenovo for further information about your system, if you still have warranty and is still in the one year period then your system will be covered for any repairs needed - you can call @ 1 877 453 6686 for troubleshooting, you will be asked for a serial number Located underneath the Laptop on a small white sticker that states s/n meaning serial number.

I hope that this Helps.

Have a nice day,

Nothing comes on picture blank


Ok
A few things to try
1.) Check the laptop on an external monitor, do you get a picture
2.) Is there power to the laptop from the battery and the charger? Try to see if the charger indicator lamp is blinking green rather than steady green
3.) Can you hear hard drive / fan noises and are there any lights on the laptop?

If the charger is blinking, indicates that power is not making the circuit, check tightness of charging port, if tight, assume fault on motherboard / blown main fuse

If picture on external monitor and not on laptop, assume backlight on screen dead or possibly the inverter

If no noises from HDD or Fan and No lights on laptop, then fault with motherboard

If you do get fan noises etc, but get BLINKING lights on laptop, assume possible fault with graphics chip, repost with details of blinking lights / colour and specific model of laptop

Dear support specialist, My acer laptop is not sho...


I had a problem similar to this with an ACER 7720G laptop going through the motions of starting up but no screen although I could see some fient images and found it to be the wrong charger for the laptop.

Try this: -

If you are connected to the charger disconnect it from the laptop. If the laptop screen comes up you have a problem with the charger. Try another charger and see if the problem exists.

Acer aspire 7720 start up problems


You need to try to isolate the problem. Try connecting an external monitor to your laptop. Press function screen keys. If you have a picture on your external monitor then you have a video problem - most likely an inverter, although you may need a new screen, unlikely but possible.

If you have no picture then you have a system problem. Disconnect the battery and AC adapter. Remove the memory and reseat. Repower your laptop and see what happens.

I have an acer laptop. When you turn it on you can hear it running but the screen stays blank


Is the screen black(unlit) or blank? If it's not lit, use a bright torch to see if there is a picture, and it means the backlight has gone, which is an easy fix.

Acer aspire 5050 can't turn it on


If you dont see any green lights and you dont hear any boot up sounds ( hd, fans, etc) try to take out battery and just plug in the AC adapter to a known good power outlet. Make sure your power plug is good too. If you hear boot-up sounds, see green lights but no display then toggle on the "fn" key and or try on an external monitor.

Acer Aspire 5010.. Power on, but Blank screen/ hard drive light also not.


Hi,
This could be a Power/Switch Problem.
Faulty Hard-Drive.
Solution:- Leave the laptop turned Of And charge the battery to Full Capacity. ( usually between 4-16 Hours ) depending on capacity.
This will also fully charge the CMOS ( memory battery )
then boot the laptop up, and see if this solves your problem.
If not i,d suggest running a scandisk or hard-drive diagnostic program, to ensure that you have no Viruses-bad sectors on the hard-drive.
If you need further assistance please don,t hesitate to ask for more help and advice.

No power when at switch on


Sounds like the power socket on the laptop may have broken loose from the board. Very common. If you have a multimeter, try and check the voltage ont the tines where the main battery receives it's charge, with the ac adapter connected to the laptop. That will tell a lot. Good luck
