Question about Acer Aspire 5315-2153 Notebook

1 Answer

Device powers on but will not boot

When powered on LEDs light, fan starts up, nothing else happens.

Will not power off. Must remove battery to power off.

Fn + ESC + Power, No LEDs, Fan goes at full blast and will not stop. Again, not responsive to power button, must remove battery to power off.

In both situations nothing else is responsive, not the monitor, key board, speakers or disc drive.

Have checked memory, power source and hard drive, no change.

I have seen this happen when the amount of RAM installed in the computer is higher than what is allowed by the motherboard.

Compaq presario v6101us wont boot not even start up screen


Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.Maybe your video card is bad.

Compaq presario v6101uswont boot not even start up screen


When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.


Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.

    If a PC suddenly fails to boot properly, you should perform a hard reset as the first action. Performing the hard reset will correct many problems. If the computer still does not start properly, select your symptom from the list below to guide you to the recommended corrective actions.
    1. Disconnect all peripheral devices and remove all USB devices and SD media cards. You want to test the computer not the accessories!
    2. Disconnect the AC power adapter, remove the battery, and then press and hold the power button for at least 15 seconds to drain all residual power and restore default startup settings.
    3. Reconnect the AC power adapter (but do not insert the battery), Press the Power button, Look for glowing LEDs near caps lock and num lock keys, and Listen for sounds of a fan or other moving parts turning.
    4. If the computer does not start, the LED lights do not glow, and the display is black, you can perform one or more of the following actions to resolve the no power issue.
      • Verify the computer is receiving power from the AC adapter . Verify that the AC adapter is not damaged and is connected correctly to a working wall outlet plug. Verify AC power is connected to the system board by examining the AC adapter, wiring, and pin connection for damage. The keyboard LEDs will glow when AC power is connected to the system board. Damaged components, like the AC adapter or the pin in the power connector, may require an HP-certified repair.
      • Use a different AC power adapter . If you have access to a different AC adapter or power pack that is designed for the computer, connect it to the notebook and try to start the computer. If you own or have access to more than one notebook, verify that you are using the adapter which belongs to the notebook. CAUTION: Using a power adapter that does not meet the power requirements or has the wrong type of connector may damage the computer. On newer notebook models, connecting the wrong adapter to the notebook may cause the power LED lights to blink but not power the computer.
      • Remove the battery and boot on AC power only . A discharged or defective battery may prevent the AC adapter from supplying enough power to start the computer. To verify that power from the AC adapter is available for PC; remove the battery, connect AC power adapter, and press power button. If available, try using a different AC adapter, that is rated for the PC, and repeat this test.
      • Remove the AC adapter and boot on battery power only . A defective AC adapter may not charge the battery and prevent the computer from booting on battery power only. To verify battery power available for the PC; connect AC power adapter, allow battery to charge for 30 minutes or more, disconnect the power adapter and press power button. If available, try using a fully charged battery, of the same type, from another computer and repeat this test.
        • If LEDS do not glow and the fan or hard drive do not spin, battery may need to be replaced.
        • If tests of both the battery and the AC adapter fail, there may be a problem with system board requiring service by HP.
        • If LEDs glow and PC boots, the AC adapter may need to be replaced.
        • If LEDs glow, but PC does not boot go to LEDs glow, fan is heard, but display is black or blank section.

    My daughters Toshiba satellite l505d will not boot up correctly. It starts but then nothing happens. What do I need to do. Have already taken battery out and restarted. Any help would be helpful.


    Try the following.
    1. Remove battery and plug in the AC Adapter and check if it works
    If yes - Battery is defective
    If no - Motherboard Problem/AC adapter

    2. Check the AC adapter LED indicator if its lighted or not(double check by a multitester)
    If lighted - it works properly
    if not - replace
    3. Try to reinstall WINDOWS operating system by the use of the installer CD
    4. Reformat your computer and install necessary drivers and applications

    Thanks. Cheers!

    Try removing / swapping / reseating the memory.

    Try booting with one stick only, if the top slot doesn't work, try booting the bottom slot. Try both sticks.

    Shuttle X PC - HD + Power LEDs briefly illuminate, no boot.


    It sounds like you have a bad power supply. It will store up a very small amount of energy (enough to run some LED lights) but not enough to power up the system. That's where I would look. If that is not the problem, then I would look to the capacitors on your motherboard. Good Luck!
