Acer Aspire 1800 Won't boot

Hello!

My Acer Aspire 1800 has died.
When i turn it on, he doens't show anything on the screen + doesn't load anything. He also doesn't give a BEEP or something. I used an external monitor but also nothing. Is this a problem with the Bios?

I really need some help

Thanks!

    Oh, thanks for the fast reaction!



    I thought it was something with the harddisk or memory, so I already disassembled my Acer. To get the updated BIOS and BIOS flash program, I have to prove that I bought it?



    @ Geekman: Yes, The laptop still starts (power ok), the fans whirl, the disk spins,
    but no screen and no POST beeps. Removing memory and disk didn't make
    a difference either.
    I've tried holding the power button for 20 seconds, leaving the laptop
    without battery and power for several hours, none of it helped.

    Ok, I downloaded the updated BIOS with it's Flash program but it didn't succeed. Now, when I start up the Laptop, a fan starts to spin hard but I do hear an abnormal sound. It looks like something is stuck... it aint because I opened it a few minutes ago and there's nothing stuck.



    Maybe the hd is dead... any suggestions?

    Does the charge LED light on the laptop switch on when you connect the adapter?

I recently had Acer Aspire One Laptop with very similar symptoms: No screen, no lights (those that indicates activities) except Power button. I first thought the Hard Disk is dead but it's not.
I contacted Acer helpdesk in Australia and they have sent me a document with BIOS update and instructions. I did what it says and then the laptop is back to normal. Yours may have the same issue - need BIOS update. The Aspire One BIOS update requires a FAT USB drive with the updated BIOS and the BIOS Flash program, plugged it in, press and hold 2 buttons: Fn and Esc, then press Power button for a while.
You should seek Acer Support website. But you may need proof of purchase.

    Did Acer give you instructions? I seriously tought my Aspire One had dead HD as I can only hear a few Reading-Arm movements upon power up, then only spinning noise from CPU and HD.


    I can email you the instructions Acer sent to me if you want. But model is different, instruction may differ.

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.

Acer Aspire 5732Z won't turn on - the light comes on for a few seconds and then turns off - whilst the light is on the disk drive will open - the screen doesn't show anything


Could be bad ram,hard drive or possibly a bad display panel or video card.Try using different ram and removing the hard drive then try it.Also,connect it to an external display and see if it shows video or not.If after trying these things it still isn't showing let me know and i'll try to help more.

Hello my friend. The problem is that the "hard drive" has a lot of bad sectors and the netbook cannot recognise it. The Hard disk might need replace with a new hard disk. Please refer to a computer technician. Please rate my help! Thanks!

Acer aspire 1 netbook won,t boot up.


Hi
When you first turn the machine on hit F2, that will take you into the bios menu, i don't know what version your machine is using, but the information is usually on the first page, you should find it easy enough because it will be next to the CD/DVD drive.
