Is the battery charging wile its off? Does the power cord have a short? If its not power problems then you may have a broken motherboard and/or processor.

This is a problem with that particular model of laptop.

It seems that the GPU chip (Graphics) overheats resulting in the solder points not making a good connection to the motherboard.

If your quite hardware savvy, you could strip her right down, take of the cooling unit and clean off all the old thermal compound and dust from the Heatsink, CPU and GPU. Then replace the thermal compound with better stuff (Arctic silver 5). This may solve the problem.

I had to do a bit more than this to get mine up and running though. If you need details just let me know.

Better still is if you know someone who's real good with a heatgun (aka Someone who's done this sorta thing on an XBox360) that can reflow the BGA joints on the chip for you. Sounds dangerous i know but if your lappy aint working theres not much else to lose.

Good luck, maddoc666.

shine a flashlight on the screen. if you see a faint image, its the backlight thats the problem and you will need to get a new one to fix that. But if you dont see a faint image you will need to hook it up to an external monitor( an monitor that is not made into the laptop) , and if you see an image on the monitor you will have to clear the CMOS.
and to do that you will need to take out the battery, the plug, and hold down the ON button for about 30-60 seconds. Well thats how you clear it on most laptops. But if it does'nt work on the external monitor you probally have a bad video chip and need to replace your old one.

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :-

My acer aspire notebook froze and when I tried to turn it back on, the computer turns on but the screen does not show anything and it does not start up fully. What is wrong and how can I fix it?

Try taking the battery off the bac, unplugging it and press the power button for 15 seconds. Now plug the AC adapter back in but do not install the battery. Try turning the system back on. If it starts and boots, then go ahead and slide the battery back in place. Go to control pnel > power Options. Go through and make sure to nothing is set to go into "sleep" mode. This mode causes a lot of problems. Look to the left column and under "closing the lid", make sure to check the box or setting "Do Nothing".

Acer Aspire 3610 wont start up, black screen comes up stating disk error. I am unable to have it start in safemode by pressing F8, nothing happen. THe only thing that does happen is a black screen appears...

The other way to fix it, you need to disassemble your laptop if you've familiar the unit. Usually the HDD has not been attach check the HDD cable (SATA or IDE) replace it. On other hand if the same things happen and you don't have windows CD, it's time to buy an windows CD installer. Reformat your unit to fix the problem.

Good luck!
