I have the same problem. The power light flashed a few second then off. Fan on a few second then off. Turns out it is the memory. Use memory of same type or spec from another laptop. Buy one and if not the case return it. Seems Acer uses crappy parts that fail over time. BTW, I tried all - remove battery, hard drive,...

Try taking out battery and plug in power. If it works, battery is faulty.
If not, try taking out your hard disk plug in power, if it works, hard disk is faulty.Try taking out memory card, if there's a sound, memory card faulty. If no sound, it's your motherboard that is causing the error.

Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.

When I power on my Acer Aspire 5315 (on 32bit Vista OS) the LCD screen stays black and it doesn't show any sign of booting-up. The only thing that I see is the green LED light which shows that the power is...


plug the laptop into a monitor, most new LCD TV's will have a PC connection on the back, you will need a VGA or DVI cable for this, depends what your laptop has. If you see the OS boot up fine then the problem is with your laptop display, likely the backlight or some component of the display is toast. If you don't see anything on the second display then you may have other issues, video card/motherboard, although you would think that would be caught at POST and give you some beeps to indicate failure. Try the first option then post back with results.

When i start my aspire 5520 laptop the screen is black theres no mouse no booting nothing at all


If it accesses the hard disk - you'll hear a soft whirring and clinking - it could be the video not working, and this would require sending the unit for repair.

If it doesn't even do that, and yet the hard disk spins up, it could well be the memory. Try opening the memory bay door on the bottom, extracting the RAM chip (it is held by two small tabs at the sides, which must be gently pried open), and reinserting, wiggling it slightly to seat it firmly. If you have a compressed air can handy, blow air in the RAM slot.

Almost any other trouble should make itself "heard" through a sequence of BEEPs at boot.

One last thing - if "nothing at all" means, absolutely no noise, the Acer stays dead -- no lights, no sounds -- then maybe it's simply the AC adapter not working, and the battery gone flat; or as it sometimes happen, the battery is busted and interferes with the AC adapter. In such cases, you will be able to boot if you remove the battery and run on the AC adapter alone.

Acer aspire 5520 laptop. Is it dead?


To verify it isn't a battery issue you can try taking the battery out completely and plugging in the A/C adapter and turning it on.

Without more information it's hard it's hard to diagnose your issue more specificially. Do you get any lights on the front?
