    hi zohail, I don't have any other ram to try.. but if it helps, once it does boot up ther's no probelm at all (exept when hibernates, then it dies again).

    I have just reseted default setting in the BIOS just in case, but same history.

    mike, when i'm having the "blinking light" problem for a minute or so the fun is not moving... then when i try again and again and eventually boots up the fan does move.

    thanks for the quicky reply by the way!

If you can't get past the bios boot then likely its a problem with the bios settings or a hardware issue on the motherboard. Make sure the processor fan is running when it turns on.

    Sounds like the motherboard has a hardware issue. Power supply likely.

Hello,

Please reboot the laptop, and just as it starts loading hit F8 several times, until you see the option to boot from recovery partition.
Try to go through the recovery again.

thats mean the charging system is faulty and sometimes there are breakages at the edge of the power cable where the pin is.try another power cable if it shows the same signal then the fault is on the laptop board.

Acer Aspire 5520 not turning on.


If this happened out of the blue it could be the update from mcafee that is causing issue. If you have mcaffe security on that laptop read this first:

My Acer Aspire 5520 blinks the power light when I turn it on; it will not boot up.


It looks like your battery is either discharged or has a short circuit.
Plug the power AC cord in the laptop and let recharge the battery at least 3 hours before you try to start it again. If the computer boots up, enter the BIOS and check to see if you have a "battery check" oprion. If you do, start it and let it run until it is done (it may take several hours to complete). It will check the battery charge cycle.

Acer Aspire 5520 does not start up, power light blinking green


I think it might be the motherboard, if its not regulating the voltage properly then to much will go thru the motherboard and the fan won't be able to cool things down properly. Eventually then the motherboard will fail and then no video like your having now.

Try these steps anyway just to be sure:

only hook up the AC Adapter keep the battery disconnected. See if it turns on, if you still get a blinking green light then go ahead and turn the laptop off.

At this point, unseat and reseat the memory one stick at a time in each slot one at a time. Try turning on the laptop after each stick reinsertion.

If that doesn't do it then disconnect the hard drive and the dvd drive from the laptop.

Then try turning on the laptop, if you still can't get video then the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.

At this point at least you would know for sure.

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.
