Question about Acer (ACERMOTHERBOARD)

Acer turning off

I have an ACER Aspire 5715Z. Last week it turned itself off whilst in use and then I could not turn back on. Managed to turn on eventually but then kept turning itself straight off, power lights stayed lit and had to remove battery. Was told by a 'friend' it was the motherboard overheating through dust build up and that I need a new motherboard. Can anyone tell me if this is right?

Starts, 3 secs, turns off, restarts 3 secs repeats


Try removing the battery and restart. Could be a bad memory module, fan not working, CPU going bad, graphics chip overheated and going bad. I assume it is out of warranty so you might have to take it to a repair shop.

Good Morning. I wonder if anyone could help me solve my problem I have a Accer Aspire 5535 and its around 2yrs old on windows Vista. The screen stopped lighting up and then on Random days it would...


Hi,

This could be one of two things, it is either the inverter (this generates high voltage to run the back light) or it could be the back light itself.

As you have suggested, it could just be a loose wire or cable.

Replacing the inverter is relatively straightforward as it is located at the bottom edge of the LCD screen behind the plastic case. The backlight is usually part of the LCD screen and you would usually be better replacing the screen entirely.

To get at either of these components to check cables/wires etc, you will need to disassemble the screen case of the laptop, this is fairly simple if you are comfortable with disassmbling laptops.

A brief overview of the screen replacement process is below, instructions 1-4 show how to remove the case to access the inverter and cables:

1. Power off your laptop. Turn the laptop upside down so that you can see the bottom side of the laptop's case.

2. Depress the battery release latch and lift the battery and laptop ac adapter out of the laptop. Flip the computer back over and open up the LCD screen to a 90 degree angle.

3. Pull off each of the rubber buttons located along the edges of the Acer Aspire 5535 Screen. Remove each of the screws underneath the buttons with the Phillips-head screwdriver, remove keyboard.

4. Insert your fingers underneath the cover of the Acer Aspire 5535 Screen. Work your fingers around the edges of the cover to unlock it from the screen. Pull the cover off the screen and set it aside.

5. Locate the inverter board at the bottom edge of the Acer laptop screen . Disconnect the cables at the right and left end of the board that connect to the Acer Aspire 5535 Screen. Remove the screw holding the inverter board in place and then lift the board off the LCD screen.

6. Tilt the screen slightly towards you until you can see the strip of tape holding the video cable. Pull off the tape and then disconnect the video cable from the laptop case.

7. Remove the Acer Aspire 5535 LCD screen from the case. Set the new screen onto the case and reattach the video cable and tape strip. Position the replacement inverter board at the bottom of the screen and attach the screw.

8. Reconnect the inverter board's cables. Pop the plastic cover onto the Acer Aspire 5535 LCD screen and reconnect the screws. Set the rubber buttons over the screws. Reconnect the battery.

9. Turn on the laptop. Wait for the manufacturer's logo to appear on the screen to ensure the display was replaced properly.

Acer Aspire 5920-6864 Is not turned on


this probleme is common among acer 5920, the probleme is with the motherboard that's of bad quality and workmanship. Acer should be ashamed to sell a PC with a faulty motherboard and should compensate all 5920's owners or replace with a better motherboard. 1000's if not millions are having the same probleme wich tell to anyone with a brain that Acer 5920 is a scam. good luck. x

Wont power up!


May be the battery is dead (i.e. uncharged). Connect to an electric network and try once.
