Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

1 Answer

Acer Aspire One hangs during boot and then powers off after 30sec

Acer Aspire One
With mains cable connected and battery light green, when I power on the machine starts to boot but then hangs when it reaches the blue screen with Aspire One text, it does not go on to show the Home page. then after about another 10seconds it just powers itself off.

I have tried disconnecting the mains cable, the battery, pressing the On button for 30 seconds then reconnecting power, pressing on and reconnecting battery - but no joy.

I have also tried pressing F2 druing the boot this brings me to Set-up screen but again the machine automatically switches off after about 30seconds

Any suggestions welcome, thank you, don't fancy returning to Acer as it looks like it could end up costing me lots

Sounds to me like you need to restore your bios settings to default. if you can get into bios usually by pressing delete then it shouldnt be too hard. if that dont work the next easiest thing to do is to take out the battery that is inside the laptop somewhere on the motherboard! this will clear bios settings after about 2 or 3 mins of being out make sure the computer has no other power going to it when you take out battery

When I power on my Acer Aspire 5315 (on 32bit Vista OS) the LCD screen stays black and it doesn't show any sign of booting-up. The only thing that I see is the green LED light which shows that the power is...


plug the laptop into a monitor, most new LCD TV's will have a PC connection on the back, you will need a VGA or DVI cable for this, depends what your laptop has. If you see the OS boot up fine then the problem is with your laptop display, likely the backlight or some component of the display is toast. If you don't see anything on the second display then you may have other issues, video card/motherboard, although you would think that would be caught at POST and give you some beeps to indicate failure. Try the first option then post back with results.

Try to use different hard disk and put it on your machine. If it works, i suspected your OS is corrupted. You might need to reformat your hard drive. Before reformatting you need to back up all your files because everything will be deleted and set up to defaulty factory settings.

Acer Aspire 5520 would not proceed to boot up


Tried replacing the memory. It worked for me. I tried removing battery, harddrive etc. Same thing: briefly power light on and fan on and then both off.

Flashing orange and yellow lights


Most likely your battery is dead.
If you are worried about your HD , the best thing to do would be to power it off.
Remove the battery and see if it will boot on the AC adapter.
If it boots , just get a new battery.
If not you have a motherboard issue and need to call Acer if it is under warranty.

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.
