Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

1 Answer

Acer Aspire One With mains cable connected and battery light green, when I power on the machine starts to boot but then hangs when it reaches the blue screen with Aspire One text, it does not go on to show the Home page. then after about another 10seconds it just powers itself off. I have tried disconnecting the mains cable, the battery, pressing the On button for 30 seconds then reconnecting power, pressing on and reconnecting battery - but no joy. I have also tried pressing F2 during the boot this brings me to Set-up screen but again the machine automatically switches off after about 30seconds Any suggestions welcome, thank you,

Try to use different hard disk and put it on your machine. If it works, i suspected your OS is corrupted. You might need to reformat your hard drive. Before reformatting you need to back up all your files because everything will be deleted and set up to defaulty factory settings.

Acer Notebook won't start up. At first we thought the powercord was damaged because the green light on it would blink. We got a new cord but the light just turns off and the computer won't start.


There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.

If this did not work, try also disassembling the laptop & make sure that all main components are seated properly. Also make sure that all ribbon cables interconnecting the various components of the laptop are tightly connected.

Your motherboard is probably shorting out your A/C adapter, you may need a new motherboard. With a Dell, the A/C adapter light will be green when plugged into the wall but as soon as you plug it into the PC the green light goes off. Which means that the Motherboard is shorting out the A/C adapter...

Flashing orange and yellow lights


Most likely your battery is dead.
If you are worried about your HD , the best thing to do would be to power it off.
Remove the battery and see if it will boot on the AC adapter.
If it boots , just get a new battery.
If not you have a motherboard issue and need to call Acer if it is under warranty.

Acer Aspire One hangs during boot and then powers off after 30sec


sounds to me like you need to restore your bios settings to default. if you can get into bios usually by pressing delete then it shouldnt be too hard. if that dont work the next easiest thing to do is to take out the battery that is inside the laptop somewhere on the motherboard! this will clear bios settings after about 2 or 3 mins of being out make sure the computer has no other power going to it when you take out battery

Acer aspire 5050 can't turn it on


If you dont see any green lights and you dont hear any boot up sounds ( hd, fans, etc) try to take out battery and just plug in the AC adapter to a known good power outlet. Make sure your power plug is good too. If you hear boot-up sounds, see green lights but no display then toggle on the "fn" key and or try on an external monitor.
