Question about Acer Aspire 3610 Notebook

1 Answer

Acer Aspire 3610 Freezes upon initial powering on

When I hit the power button, the Acer logo screen appears & the loading bar at the bottom would usually last 1-2 seconds before it went to the desktop.  This morning for the 1st time, it locked-up on this screen.  To get around it, I have to press the space bar.  Then, it's followed by a never-ending beep, which you have to press the space bar again to kill the sound & go to the desktop.

 

I thought my problem was over; however, once I opened a Word document, I noticed that the W and S keys weren't working either.

 

Any potential solutions/recommendations to follow for this problem that has just popped-up all of a sudden?  Would greatly appreciate any feedback.


Thanks!  Dave Coleman

HOW to tget to bios acer aspire AST180-ED400A


Immediately after pressing the power up button, start repeatedly pressing F2 while the Acer logo is displaying. The Bios setup screen should appear. If you press F2 too soon, the keyboard may not have initialized yet. If you press it too late, Windows will proceed to launch. Press it once, wait a second, press, it again, wait another second, and repeat this while the Acer logo is displaying until you see the bios setup screen.

This is standard approach with most Acers. That said, some laptops may defer to either Ff being the key to press or CTRL+ALT+EXC. Such would be entered as the above mentioned F2. Your Aspire appears to be a desktop and I suspect F2 will suffice.

Acer 3000 Series Laptop Splash screen does not appear at startup when pressing F2 on the post page. Therefore unable to acces bios. Has e-manager but cannot access bios through it either. Welcome all...


It sounds like the Acer logo has been turned off in the bios settings. As soon as you hit the power button, start tapping the F2 key until you see the test appear "entering setup". Once you are in the BIOS, look for the Logo settings as far as being visible during Boot up. I've seen this setting on other systems so I am thinking the Acer should be similiar.

My Acer Aspire One shows black screen only.


Acer Aspire One BIOS Recovery The AA1 has a built-in BIOS recovery routine, making it possible to flash the BIOS even if the system doesn't boot anymore. It's only meant for emergencies and may void your warranty, so use at your own risk.

Follow every step carefully!

First format an USB stick with FAT.

Download the latest BIOS, and put both FLASHIT.EXE and the BIOS file in the root directory of the stick. Rename the BIOS file to ZG5IA32.FD, that's important. Do not remove the USB stick.

Turn the AA1 off, make sure both battery and AC adapter are connected. Press Fn+Esc, keep it pressed and press the power button to turn the AA1 on. Release Fn+Esc after a few seconds, the power button will be blinking. Press the power button once. The AA1 will now initiate the BIOS flash, do not interrupt it under any circumstances. After a while the power button will stop blinking, and the AA1 will reboot shortly after. Wait patiently.

The BIOS has been flashed and all settings reset to default.

If for some reason you made a mistake during the procedure and it doesn't reboot by itself wait 5 minutes before turning it off, just to be safe that it isn't still flashing the BIOS.

Download WIN98BOOT.ZIP and HPUSBFORMATTER from the internet normal bootable like a diskette won't work with a usb stick
I had mine 2 months it's a common problem with the notebook.
The onely thing that you have to do is download these programs with someone with a internet connection.

Good luck

My Palm TX device is not initializing. it says "palm powered" then a loading bar starts at the bottom of the screen, then it turns off...and it repeats the same thing over and over again.


Have you tried a hard reset? In case you need to know how...Hold Power button on Top of Palm down, then press reset button, then release reset button and continue to hold power button down until second Palm logo comes on screen and progress bar at the bottom of screen completes. If you release the power button and it asks which language you want to use you have done this correctly.

Boot problems with Acer Aspire 3610


do you have power ? if no, check your power outlet and ac adapter first, if both of them are ok, it could be your motherboard.
if you have power but no display, this is called no post.
reseat your memory. if still not working, use 1 memory and try to put it in different ram slot. and if this is still not working, your motherboard is bad

Acer laptop has black screen but power light is on


Does it appear to be doing anything. Is there a flashing "_" at the top left of your screen. If not try hooking a monitor up externally and turning the laptop on.
