Acer Aspire 5050 won't turn on

So my boyfriend is a computer technician and he tried switching the hard drives of my laptop and and replaced it with another. The other hard drive looked a little different but he placed it in anyway and it turn on. So he switched them back and it still didn't turn on. We checked the battery and the prongs in which the hard drive has on it and everything seemed fine. We looked up countless solutions and still haven't found anything that worked. Also, a few moments before he tried switching the hard drives my computer had frozen and i decided to remove the battery for a while which is what I always have done when it freezes. Our reasoning for wanting to switch the hard drives were because my laptop has a password locked onto it from when my mom had it and I could not make any changes and have tried a password resetting program and nothing works. But, anyway, can someone help me with this? I have lots of personal things on it that I need for school.

after downloading file you will need to write iso to cd using a program like imgburn

you will then need to boot from the cd

you can change the boot order so that it boots the cd first on your laptop's bios

SOURCE: Acer Aspire 5050 won't boot at all

Yes, it's not the hard drive.

More than likely it's your motherboard.

There's not much you can do besides trying to boot the computer without the battery, and removing and reinstalling the memory.

Hopefully you'll get lucky!

SOURCE: acer aspire one will not work.

Hi,

If you get a post screen with Acer written on it at startup, and the screen turns off when loading the system (Windows or Linux), then you need to reinstall the system using an external USB cd unit and the recovery disk that was provided with your Acer.

If instead the display has no screen at all , try connecting an external monitor to test the laptop.

If you get picture on external monitor, then the Aspire One has a faulty LCD ribbon cable or a faulty LCD display or inverter.

If you get no picture on external screen , then you have a faulty motherboard, possibly faulty video chipset on motherboard.

In any case check your Acer One warranty, all the faults listed are covered by Acer warranty for one year.
Contact Acer at the number listed on documentation to have the computer repaired.

Operating system not found


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Hello.My ACER Aspire One netbook will not properly load, or load at all actually. It worked fine yesterday, I shut it down.. and when I turn it back on it won't work correctly. It comes to a black load...


Hello my friend. The problem is that the "hard drive" has a lot of bad sectors and the netbook cannot recognise it. The Hard disk might need replace with a new hard disk. Please refer to a computer technician. Please rate my help! Thanks!

Acer aspire 5050 hard drive problems


If your computer has been working and when you start it you get the message that there is no hard drive (no boot device), then your hard drive has gone bad.
If you have gone into the bios and don't see either a hard drive or a CD or DVD, then most probably you are looking at a motherboard problem. It is not very common for the hard drive and CD/DVD to go bad at once.

Do you have or did you make the recovery installation optical media [dvd or cds]. If you have the option to make the recovery media - you should do it now - as you may need to reformat the hard drive.
