Acer Aspire 5002 Laptop will not stay on

Laptop does not start. When the start button is depressed, the I/O, hard drive and britghtness LED light up momentarily in green and then shut down. The power supply was checked and is working fine. When the PS is plugged in the computer the battery LED lights up in amber color. Is this an indication of a bad battery? Isn't the laptop suppose to work when plugged in even if it has a bad battery? Will a bad CMOS battery keep a computer from starting even with the PS plugged in? i have an acer aspire 5002wlmi at first it said when trying to boot up operating system not found, so i tried to reinstall windows to no prevail, after that i decided to order a new fan because it was noisy and dirty, new stick of 1 gb ram pc2700 and a new hard drive now when i try to install the new os the computer turns on for approx 10 seconds then shuts down and ideas??? thanks Evan

    After cleaning out the vents, is the computer booting up and staying on now?

    okay adaptor is good then. Sounds to me like the motherboard is bad then since the only external device hooked up to the laptop is the ac adaptor but one more thing, check your air vents to make sure there is no buildup or dust or dirt in there.

    If there is a green LED on your ac adaptor it should stay green and that tells you the adaptor is working correctly.

    Hook up the laptop directly to a working wall outlet and see if the power stays on.

    Does your laptop feel very warm or hot to the touch?




  • Ben Wabnick

    the battery light should be green if its another color then the battery is bad. Take the battery out and only hook up the ac adaptor and tell me how far the laptop boots up.

On acer aspire laptop screen is grey at startup


Hello,

1. When you press the power button to turn it on, do you see any thing on screen, It probably should show an ACER logo?

2. Can you see a faint image of your desktop (try to see it in dark place with flash light). If you do see a faint image it could mean your back light is broken.

3. When you press the power button do you get different LED's lighting up on the laptop? IE power LED, hard drive LED?

4. Does your computer give you any random beeps when it starts up?

Please answer these questions and I would be more than happy to work through this with your.

Thanks RCCT

How to remove cd/dvd drive on a acer aspire 5003WMLi


Turn the laptop over, on the bottom you will find a screw about 5-6 inches in from the cd-rom drive. The screw will have a little symbol of a CD next to it. If you remove this screw the cd-rom drive should slide right out. Be sure to do this with the laptop turned off, unplugged and with the battery removed.

Acer 5920 aspire wont start


1. Remove laptop battery, optical drive, hard drive and ram. Remove external peripherals as well.

2. Make sure AC Adapter is not yet connected to the laptop. Pressand hold on the laptop’s power button for 10 seconds to drain the powerflea.

3. Connect the AC Adapter for laptop to a known good power outlet, check ACAdapter power LED if it is on. Try to sense if AC Adapter is not makinga bit of noise when it is plugin to the wall power outlet.

4. Connect now the AC Adapter tothe laptop. Check if AC Adapter LED stays on when it is connected tothe laptop. If the LED stays on means the AC Adapter is fine. If the ACAdapter LED turned off check the AC Adapter pin that goes to the laptopAC socket if it is loose.

5. If AC Adapter stays on after connecting to the laptop try topower on laptop. If no power LED comes on then this is motherboardproblem.

6. Before replacing the motherboard there is one checking needs todo. If you can open your laptop bottom part then good, do this whenlaptop is not connected to any power source. Try to reseat the laptopCMOS battery then try to power on laptop after, if still fails thenreplace motherboard. I hope this helps.

Acer Aspire 5002 Laptop will not stay on


This can be an overheat issue. Either the CPU or the Chipset is overheating. Make sure all your fans are working.

Laptops still turn on with the ac adapter plug in and without a battery plugged in. Nope a bad CMOS battery would give you a warning message on the laptop screen, stating the CMOS battery is low or needs to be replaced.

Also does your battery hold a charge? If so with the battery plug in only (without the ac adapter plugged in) does the laptop do the same thing?
