Most likely this problem is related to the motherboard failure and the motherboard has to be replaced. Just in case, try removing RAM modules one by one. Test the laptop with each module separately. If it doesn't help, probably it's bad motherboard.

Black Screen


this is a power related issue. Try to remove the battery, remove any cd that may inside the cd drive, remove any usb or anything connected to the pc like a network cable. and remove the charger as well. Now press and hold the power button for about 2 to 3 minutes.This might have been caused by improper shutdown or power fluctuations and or if you slide your laptop on a bed or carpet, this builds up static electricity around the computer's motherboard and may prevent it from starting up properly. Then after pressing the power button for that long, replace the battery only and try to switch on the machine and observe. I hope this will solve your problem

Screen not responding


can you hear any boot sounds?
(fan noise, harddisk rattling)
do the LEDs work (battery and charger , Hdd, CD/DVD-ROM-drive,WLAN)?
this would indicate it still boots up, but screen might be broke.

u lucky?
- remove battery pack! retry booting

if not, hook it up to another external monitor
(use vga-jack in the back of it)
reboot, wait for signal

- check if the the fan is jammed
(due to sand???)
this might cause overheat problem -
use compressed air to blow/clean the fan inlet

still no luck? it simply may be broke...

Acer aspire blue screen appeared went off now laptop starts up for few seconds then turns off again, but always a black screen hear the fan a few seconds but nothing


Try this:
  • check to make sure the fan is actually spinning and that there is no debri (dust bunnies) causing it to overheat.
  • Make sure there is nothing preventing airflow, you may need to tilt the back up to allow more airflow
Is there any display at all? Do you see a BIOS splash screen? Do you hear a beep shortly after powering on?

--if you have a splash screen, go into BIOS setup by pressing a button (del,F1,F10...whatever) then set it factory defaults and save changes

--also try removing anything that's detachable (USB, cards, dvd-rom, RAM, Battery...) Hold down the power button for 20 secs then plug in only the A/C and see if you get a bios screen

Hope this helps
