How to reboot acer

I bought my Acer just over three months ago and now, only sometimes, it sounds like it's booting up, but the screen remains black. There is nothing wrong with the display. The problem is intermittent, though it seems to be happening once every few days now... I made restore disks. Is that my next option? The 'restore' point when I tried a simple restore didn't go back more than a week... Any ideas? I don't want to shell out lots of cash, especially since I bought it so recently.

SOURCE: d2d recovery

Is the d2d erecovery function enabled in the bios?

To check, activate the BIOS utility, press <F2> during the POST; while the notebook PC logo is being displayed.

To enable D2D recovery ard disk recovery), select Main from the categories listed at the top of the screen.

Find D2D Recovery at the bottom of the screen and use the <F5> and <F6> keys to set this value to Enabled.

That should allow you to use the F10 function key to activate D2D.
* Note: D2D e-recovery is not in Acer Empowering Management.
AEM is a power management utility that supports ACPI (advanced configuration and power interface) which allows for maximum power conservation and maximum performance. (Managed by the windows OS)

SOURCE: Acer Aspire 5520 screen and NVIDIA driver problems

its a hardware issue, and why its your motherboard on laptop have a problem, not physically but i think your try to re-update your BIOS to clear out all the malfunction chips inside your laptop. This problem was actually i encountered before but no one also understand why is always came back the problem on it. Go to the website on the ACER www.acer.com to download the latest BIOS updates on it.
You should install it one by one or step by step like for example 1.0 then 2.0, like that. And don't be so hurry the BIOS is a very delicate setup rather than Windows System.
Basically restore the BIOS setting on default after that installation.
This installation might help to you with that problem and dont forget to unplug all unnecessary input devices so that it will not hang up again. Afterwards run Disc Recovery Disk to setup Windows System, good luck! Bboy

SOURCE: my acer aspire4310 notebook suddenly displays a white screen

I have an ACER extensa 5630 laptop with the same white screen problem. I found the wiring connecting the LCD and mother board was the problem. Several ground wires from the LCD were wrapped, but not soldered, around another wire from the microphone which then goes to the connector for the motherboard. You will need to remove all the tape wrapped around the wires starting from the motherboard connector to about 3 inches back.

Black screen


The game has probably screwed up the configuration. They do sometimes.
Press the power button and just before the machine tries to boot press the F8 key. That should allow you to restore or repair your machine.If there is absolutely no display, get it repaired under warranty.

Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->System Restore

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next
Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.


The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.


Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot your problem should be resolved.



If you feel that my answers have helped you getting solution to your problems then please give a vote.

Thanks.

I have a Acer Aspire 5745 (CPU: Intel i5 processor 2.5GHz RAM: 2GB OS: Win 7 Home Basic) which is only 2 months old. Yesterday I started a installation setup of a game, when suddenly the system restarted....


Hi, I do apologize for the inconvenience you have been facing.The reason why the laptop does not reboot to Windows even after reinstalling Windows is because the issue is with the hard drive not being recognized the reason for which you get a blinking line on the screen after the Acer logo .In this case I would suggest that if the laptop is under warranty please contact the Acer Technical support and have an order placed for repair.
Thank you for your time and best wishes for your effort.

Sounds like your PC is diplaying out of your monitors range. Try pressing f8 while booting up to get safe mode. then turn down the video resolution to display what your monitor can handle. Good Luck.

Acer aspire 4720


OMG ... i was completley distraught. i bought my ACER ASPIRE LAPTOP 6 months ago when i was trveling in italy ,im in austarlia. I use it to run my online game ; » www.themafiawarz.eu - and has all my files.

When i got the black screen o death i first am here to the boards finding nothing i was further distraught..

I AM HAPPY TO TELL YOU MY FRIENDS, that i am typing this on my lil baby

Heres what you do....

* you need usb disk drive
* a second computer with internet access (can be work cafe friends place)
* a file you can download from acer or search yourself called ZGIA32.zip

Format your drive in fat (*note i tried fat as directed in a number of manuals though then tried fat32 and it worked then though suggest you try fat first *shrug)

open zip file and copy 3309.fd and the fla.exe to the usb stick

rename 3309.fd to ZGIA32.fd

Turn off your laptop making sure that both battery and power supply is plugged in and attach the usb stik/drive.

hold down FN and ESC keys and press the power button, continue to fold FN and ESC keys for 7-10 secs then release - at this point the power light should be blinking and you should still have the black screen of death.

press the power button once while its blinking - this will initiate a bios update * DO NOT PUSH ANYTHING AFTER THIS

After 2 mins the aspire should reboot itself , wait for about 7mins if it dosent before rebooting manually

Took me three attempts as i just wasent doing something right though TA DA!!!!!

and i still have my files. yeah team take this and run, hope you havent spent money yet smile.gif

Black screen on Acer 5100, but will work with external monitor


It sounds like the control board or cable for the LCD may be damaged. If you're still under warranty, you'll need to send it back to Acer to be repaired.

Problem error:


go buy a new hard drive the hard drive has failed,,,,then use the restore disk and restore your machine...the reason it is going to the ethernet controller is that since the hard drive has failed it tries to access the next bootable device...and none is present
