If it don't boot and you get a curser then the hard drive lost its boot sector and you will have to run linux recovery cd, if it did not come with a cd then you have to call the manufacture to have the ship one out to you.

My Acer Aspire V5-571 does not load up it shows acer screen when turning on the laptop then loading floating ball comes on screen for a few seconds then black screen ? can any one please help ?


Hi Jim,

this seems like a no boot / no video kind off issue and mostly is coz of corruptions in softwares or drivers, try booting the computer in safe mode. if it does, then take a data backup. i would not recommend experimenting in this issue as it can crash the computer.
hence call 1-877-805-1027 for expert help.

My acer Aspire 3500 wont turn on. It was fine a few hours ago but now wont boot. I keep getting the acer picture featurning the f2 set up and then the screen turns blank with a white flashing - in the left...


if you activity lights on, try connecting to an external monitor or modern flat screen tv. if the screen is flashing then it is probably a screen issue. eg the invertor r screen has failed.

Acer Aspire 5738g hangs


Hi.

I too have also bought the aspire 5738.
Mine was also hanging, eventually i sent it back to acer.
The mother board was replaced as it had a faulty north bridge on it.
If your unit is still in warranty get it done as soon as possible.

Wireless switched off wont connect


On the side edge or on the front edge of the laptop there should be a wireless switch or a clear button, when you activate it the wireless light should light up amber/orange.

Acer 4520 Booting Problem.


i would suggest to uninstall and reinstall the drivers of your network adapter, or it would be best if you install the latest drivers for it. no need to format the HD.
if you feel that formating is needed, it would also work but that takes a lot of work.

hope this helps. :)
