Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook
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!
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.
