Acer won't boot up

Acer aspire 5315 laptop
When I press power button, power light comes on, I hear a whirring and at the hard disk icon on keyboard a light flashes. This happens for a few seconds then it all goes dead. I get nothing at all on the screen.
Have tried removing battery and powering from plugging in but that doesn't do anything. Nothing else is plugged into the laptop. Help!

Hi,
when any computer posts/boots up.
it goes through a sequence of initialising things before booting.
i,ve been repairing computers for around 12-15 years.
1st i,d try removing the ram ( memory ) usually underneath the laptop, behind a screw cover. Or ocassionally under the keyboard.
if 2 sticks of ram are installed, remove the battery. and 1 stick of Ram. put battery on and try to boot. if no joy with that try the other stick of ram. and replace battery-Re-boot.
If this works you have 1 stick of faulty ram or faulty ram slot on motherboard. Failing this. I suspect that the CPU has overheated, and therefore a replacement Processor should solve the problem.

Thankyou for using fixya.

Mike @ compurepair.

What is the button with the circle with a line on top and dot on bottom and flashes red mean


There are four Easy Launch buttons above the Keyboard.

First one has a symbol of a circle with a line in the top, and a dot at the bottom.

This is the Wireless communication button, and also is an indicator light.

It enables, or disables the wireless function.
Red light indicates there is no Wireless communication on.

Acer 5315 will not boot. Also will not work in safe mode


turn off laptop , remove cables and battery then press and hold power button for 8 secs. Reinsert cables and battery then turn on the pc. Observe if there is power on the laptop by checking the keyboard if there is light on it. You may check it at the upper portion of your keyboard. If it still wont boot, you may have a bad memory or hard drive. Normally if it is a system problem, your unit won't turn on. Consult ACER for possible repair of your laptop

Acer aspire 5315 doesnt boot blank screen


When you power up the laptop press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios setup.
Then check your harddisk is detect or not?
Then also make sure SATA option is disabled in bios.
Then go to boot option and set first boot device as your harddrive.Then save settings and exit.
But if you even not able to enter in bios then you have reset bios settings and Refix RAM memory .
For that open back cover fo laptop and find cmos cell on motherbord pull it for 10 minutes so all settings of bios goes to factory defaults.
Let me know if you need more assistanse.
Thanks.

Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook will not power on


disconnect the battery from the laptop and only hook up the ac adaptor. Turn the laptop on and if it still cuts off after 5 seconds then reseat the memory back into its slots. Also make sure your air vents are not clogged with dirt or dust as lack or air flow can cause the laptop to shut off. If that doesn't do it then take out the hard drive and dvd drive and turn on the laptop. If the laptop still cuts off then it has to be a faulty motherboard at that point which means to much voltage is going thru and the components on the motherboard are not regulating it properly.
