Question about Acer Aspire 1710 Notebook

1 Answer

My Acer Aspire 1710 failed to boot and no Acer logo

When I push the power-on button to start my laptop, the screen does not even
display the "Acer" logo to begin with. The screen's back-lit light was turned
on, but it has nothing but some random "snow flakes" and the laptop just hung
there without going any further. There was no beeping. No response to
any key stroke. I had to push down the power button again to turn it off.
Because it failed to display even the "Acer" logo, I suspect the laptop did
not even go to read the BIOS. I thought the Acer logo was stored in the BIOS.
Can you point me to the possible cause of my problem? Thanks
Emanuel

    I seem to have a similar kind of problem. When I push the power button, I only see semicolons (:). The whole screen is full of semicolons. Further nothing happens. No logo, no disk activity, nothing.
    I have tried to check wheter it was the memory. If I pull out both memory modules, then the screen is totally blank. If I leave one of the memory modules, the semicolons appear. Still, nothing else happens.
    I also have removed the harddisk; no other result.
    Could it be the video card? I suspect the bios is broken, since there are no beeps or anything else.... But I do not know how to check this.

Shut down your Acer Aspire if it is running. Once the computer is off, press the power button to start it. Press "F2" immediately while your computer is booting up and displaying the "Acer" logo. Keep pressing "F2" until the BIOS Setup screen appears.

if you want any of your files from the computer first pull out the hdd buy a cord and transfer them to another computer.

How do i restore my acer laptop to factory


Select models have the ability to have the operating system reinstalled from a hidden drive built into the netbook. To start the Acer eRecovery:
  1. Tap the Alt and F10 keys togther during Power-On Self-Test (POST while the Acer logo is being displayed).
  2. When prompted with a boot screen, hit the Enter key.
  3. After the Acer eRecovery program has loaded follow the prompts to reinstall the operating system.
If the ability to reinstall from the previous method is not available or fails during the recovery, recovery of the operating system will need to be from Acer Recovery Media. In order to recover the system using Acer Recovery Media an external optical disc drive is required.
  1. Press F2 to enter BIOS Setup during Power-On Self-Test (POST while the Acer logo is being displayed).
  2. Arrow over to "Boot".
  3. Ensure that the external optical drive is plugged into a USB port.
  4. Refer to on screen instructions to set the first device to "USB CDROM".
  5. Press the CD-ROM drive eject button and insert the System CD.
  6. Close the CD-ROM tray.
  7. Press "F10", then press "Enter" to save the changes and reboot the system.
  8. The netbook will boot from the Acer Recovery Media, follow the prompts to reinstall the operating system.
Please rate!

Acer Aspire 5050 screen is blank


Hi, if it works with an external monitor it's more likely an LCD problem. When you push the power button, noting comes up on the main LCD screen? not even the Acer logo etc.?
Did you set your video card to use an external monitor and disabled the primary LCD? If so, you need to go to display settings, advanced and go to ATI Display and make sure that the notebook monitor is on.
