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

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.
Hi there, please explain what's you face. Also you can follow the steps.
1. plug on the the power cable. Is there green light are on in adepter? Is not then your power cable damaged.
2. if you r battery fully charged then turn on your laptop with out connecting power cable. If your laptop booting then system is perfect.
3. Try to plug on by a different Acer laptop users power cable. and see what's going. I need these information for further instruction. You just say "wont start" i don't want to give you any blind suggestion. so please let me know more about it.

Your motherboard is probably shorting out your A/C adapter, you may need a new motherboard. With a Dell, the A/C adapter light will be green when plugged into the wall but as soon as you plug it into the PC the green light goes off. Which means that the Motherboard is shorting out the A/C adapter...
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.
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.
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.
