Question about Acer Aspire 5520-5908 Notebook

2 Answers

Acer Aspire 5520 would not proceed to boot up

Computer was left on to drain battery.
After recharging, when powered up, the HDD light is on Steady for a long time then dies down after 1 minute.

No indications of proper system booting such as Auto turn-on of Wifi, nor do the wiFi and bluetooth buttons respond during this phase.

essentially the computer hangs.

Haver tried powering using AC and battery, the results are the same.

Is there a sequence of steps I can take so I can isolate the problem if it is the mobo, processor or the HDD contributing to the problem?

Tried replacing the memory. It worked for me. I tried removing battery, harddrive etc. Same thing: briefly power light on and fan on and then both off.

My Acer Aspire 5520 blinks the power light when I turn it on; it will not boot up.


It looks like your battery is either discharged or has a short circuit.
Plug the power AC cord in the laptop and let recharge the battery at least 3 hours before you try to start it again. If the computer boots up, enter the BIOS and check to see if you have a "battery check" oprion. If you do, start it and let it run until it is done (it may take several hours to complete). It will check the battery charge cycle.

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?

Have an acer aspire 5315 laptop. I cannot reset the HDD password, so I can get on the computer


Remove the Acer BIOS passwords by simply opening their notebooks and removing the CMOS batteries for 30 minutes.

Once your BIOS password is removed, you will need to press the <F2> key during POST (Power On Self Test) to enter the Acer BIOS setup. See the below picture for reference

A hard disk problem is preventing windows from starting.


The black screen with flashing cursor can be caused by the files needed to boot being located in sectors of the hard drive that can no longer be read.

You can try booting to the XP CD, and go to recovery console and RUN CHKDSK /F See if that fixes the file structure and allows the system to boot. If that fails, you can try a repair installation of Windows. If that fails, the most likely resolution is replacing the HDD and reloading Windows and the drivers.
