Ensure that teh laptop is well connected to power adapter.

Try connecting the laptop with power adapter and no battery , if the laptop starts then you have a defective battery.

Ensure that you have no CD inside the laptop, a bad CD can prevent system from booting.

Also remove all USB devices attached.

In any case, unless the problem was caused by a CD or by a USB device, call teh seller and ask to replace the laptop, as it is new and it is faulty.

Laptop charged but wont turn on


It's is a common problem with cheap Acer laptops around 1-2 years old ( maybe longer) you may find sometimes it does turn on very rarely. You could try taking the battery out overnight to let the laptop fully discharge. You may find this fixes it, but probably temporarily. Failing the above check the warranty and contact Acer. This is a motherboard fault so is difficult to repair.

Acer aspire 5742z laptop screen wont come on yet i can hear it load windos 7


Sounds like a faulty LCD. If you press the CAPSLOCK button and see the indicator light up, then you know for sure your laptop is running and functional. Also, you can try connecting it to a monitor. If nothing shows then it might be a bad video card. For a laptop, that means motherboard since more than likely your video card is integrated.

My acer aspire 5315 wont turn on I press button and it lights up as if gonna come on but screen stays blank and then it powers out its only 1 year old help


Maybe the screen has some problems, or try clicking to the power button for some minutes, or Try charging the laptop, or try to change the laptop's battery.

This is all I know, wish it works :)

How do you reboot an acer aspire aoa110-1588


There are different ways on how to reboot a laptop. If your laptop is not operational like it's frozen or crashed with the mouse frozen, try the simple steps below:

1. The custom way to reboot your laptop is to press and hold the power of your laptop until it shuts off. Then press the power again if you want to turn it back on.

2. If your laptop is functional and you just want to reboot/restart it, click on Start then click on Turn Off and select Restart. It will restart your laptop.

3. If you can't click on the Start button but your mouse is still functional, you can simply press the Ctrl + Alt + Del button on your keyboard to bring up the Task Manager. Then on the Task Manager window, click on Shutdown tab, then choose Restart.

4. If your laptop wont turn off no matter what you do, like holding the power button and the steps above, try to remove the battery of your laptop for few minutes and put it back in. Try to turn on the computer again.

These steps are just the basic. If you can tell us more details about your laptop's problem, that is much appreciated. We will provide you exact solution to resolve it.

Have a great day!

Hi there.

When you turn the laptop on, keep pressing Alt+F10. This should open the recovery program. Follow the on-screen instructions for factory settings.

Let me know if this does/doesn't work.

ACER 5735Z .... does not start at the 1st press of power button


definately ur power button is faulty bcoz sometimes this happens when some liquid or moisture reaches the digital contacts of the button it is also bcoz of air conditioning environment please try this if u have hair dryer in ur house just switch it on the normal speed and low heat settings and point it towards the round switch on button in the centre this hot air will pass thru the holes and might help in drying the moisture

pls turn off ur notebook b4 doing it

see if it helps and pls dont forgett to rate me FIXYA if it
