Question about Acer Aspire 4315 Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop screen stays blank at boot

When I try to turn on my laptop it immediately pops up a black screen with a white _ in the upper left hand corner of the screen that repeatedly blinks. It did this with nothing in the cd drive. I tried putting in my OS disk but it still would not go past this screen.

It's a Dell Inspiron 1720. It used to start up with a Dell screen and then into Windows, but I see neither now. I need to figure this out so I can complete my project. Please help.

Hi I'm using aspire 4738G . Well my laptop does turn on and shows acer in the screen and immediately turns blank out with white dash (-) On the top left of the screen. It never shows any progress afte


the white dash is a command cue and it is waiting for you to enter a command for the laptop to proceed
when you switch the laptop on , hold down the delete key until the bios screen appears
go to boot tab and check where the boot priority is
it should be first priority , hard drive
if not make it the first priority save yes and esc.and shut down , then reboot

When I turn on my T-30 the IBM logo pops up and at the bottom it says F1 to boot up F12 to Boot up Safe Mode Then a white padlock appears in the upper left hand corner of the screen, indicating it is...


That white padlock is a system password lock. Did you recently enable a system password? Try restarting your laptop, pressing F1 or F12 to see if it will let you enter the password, then it should let you boot into the operating system.

Laptop screen stays blank at bootup


First try holding down the insert key while booting. Next either your F1 or F2 key will get you into bios.
Try pressing those keys alternately while booting to enter setup. If you get to bios follow the previous poster's advice.
Try re seating the ram boards and the hard drive. Make sure you don't have any usb flash drives installed.
