Question about Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook
I had put it on stand-by and left it and closed the screen. When i went to use it 8 hours later, the power light will go on and the fan, but it keeps turning on/shutting off and the screen is black. I tried adjusting backlight/brightness and there is nothing. If i unplug it the pulsing on and off will stop and the power light will stay green but the screen is still black. Anyone with helpful tips? Thanks, Melody
Hi Melody, Try removing the battery with the AC unplug for a couple of minutes (an hour preferably). Try with just the AC adapter only with no battery and see if it works; try with the battery only and see if it works, try with both the battery and the AC adapter and see if it works. If none of the above will make it work, then you have probably a hardware issue or BIOS power saving issue. Post back results of the 3 tries and will figure something else. Good luck and kind regards.
