Brand New laptop, won't start

I just bought a brand new acer aspire 5535. I put the power plug in and battery as per instructions, and turned on the power, the turn on button went green. I waited, as the instructions said that the initial run up could last 30 minutes. I waited 2 hours and the screen is still blank. It is still blank now, after 2.5 hours...

Try taking the battery out before you turn it on. Have seen completely a dead dead battery keeping a laptop from starting up. Does the hard drive activity light flickering? If it is you can try holding down the Function button (FN) and there should be another button to hit to switch between LCD\CRT.

Laptop shuts down


Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the battery.
Purchase a can of compressed-air, and give your computer a "blow-job", to remove the dust, because the dust is acting as a layer of insulation, trapping heat inside your computer.

Reload the battery.
Connect the AC power.
Start your laptop, and check that the fans inside the notebook computer are pushing air out of the exhaust-vents. If not, the fan(s) have failed, and you need a professional computer technician to disassemble your computer, and fix the fans.

Battery not charging. Computer is brand new. Works fine when plugged in, however icon below reads 0% charge available, plugged in, not charging''. I took the battery out and reinserted it, and still no...


If the Acer is brand new then it is under warranty. Take it back to where you bought the Acer and get it fixed under warranty. if you attempt to fix it yourself you will most likely void your warranty.

My acer aspire 3000 laptop goes off automatically. i cant even format because it goes off when i start.


You may have a faulty battery or bad power adaptor chord. Try taking the battery out and starting it just plugged with the power adaptor. If it still goes out, then try with battery and no power adaptor.

Just bought acer aspire one laptop model zg5 and will not boot


If it is brand new, I would suggest taking it back to whomever you bought it from and have them replace it or figure out the problem. Should still be under warranty.
