Acer 5520 will not boot Power light blinking

I recent bough a new screen and installed it but here is the whole story. The screen broke and shattered so I ordered a new screen. in the mean time i plugged it into a regular monitor. when it powered on the monitor made a loud pop and my power light is blinking now. once installed new screen the problem persists and this is what it does. I push the power on button and the fan whirls but the hard drive won't spin. also the screen will not come on even for the Bios. PLEASE help me if you know what this could be.

    he loud popping came from the spare monitor. i have an acer aspire 5610 with windows vista coming in but the problem is its password protected and i can' remember how to get by it.

    The loud popping sound you heard--where did it come from?
    This sound is not a good one. If it came from the computer itself, you are looking at a new motherboard.

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 Power Problems! :(


1. Actually the problem is not with the charger / adapter!

2. The plug-in port / jack of the laptop has become loose.

3. Don't try to work out the charging by adjusting the adapter plug with different angles. It will just damage the plug-in port (the wire inside the port will become loose and unaligned)!

4. Contact the Acer authorised service center for repair / replacement of that plug-in port / jack in the laptop! It'll just cost some bucks!

please rate this advice if it helps....tc! :)

Insert your restore CD if errors are found and not fixed by the checkdisk function listed above. Turn your computer off and then back on. You'll beasked to hit any button to boot from your CD; press any key. You will then beasked if you want to install a fresh version of your OS or "Repair" acurrent copy. Choose the "Repair" option.

Acer Aspire 5520 boot problem power on linght blinks


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.

A hard disk problem is preventing windows from starting.


The black screen with flashing cursor can be caused by the files needed to boot being located in sectors of the hard drive that can no longer be read.

You can try booting to the XP CD, and go to recovery console and RUN CHKDSK /F See if that fixes the file structure and allows the system to boot. If that fails, you can try a repair installation of Windows. If that fails, the most likely resolution is replacing the HDD and reloading Windows and the drivers.

5520 acer


laptops don't come with disc's these days (cheap scates) you normally have to make the recovery disc's when you first use the laptop,if the laptop is dead on arrival, as yours is, talk to the people you purchased it off, as it will be covered by a warranty,

when you boot up, look on the screen for the keyboard key, you need to push, to go into restoring the laptop to factory settings, sometimes (F11),but i think you should talk to the supplier of the laptop first.

good luck
