Acer Aspire 5520

Computer won't turn on. power switch turns on, fan starts working, then everything shuts off, on first attempt to turn on computer. After this, computer goes on a cycle of turning on and off but only the power switch turns on, the fan no longer does nor anything else. Monitor never shows anything. I had overheating problems before this occurred. I cleaned out the insides (full of dust) worked better, but then started this cycle. PLZ HELP!

My acer aspire 5520 when i press power fan comes up then shut


From your brief description, it seems that your hardware is starting correctly, and then it tries to load Windows. Windows then fails to load fully, and so Windows forces the computer to restart.

So, turn the computer on.
Immediately press F8 (again and again) until a "start-up" menu is displayed. Select "Safe Mode" and see if Windows will start.

If it does, use the "System Restore" application within "System Tools" within "Accessories" to go "back-in-time" to a date/time when your computer *was* working correctly. Restore to that date/time.

Acer 5520 turns off randomly


can you check to see if the fan is moving, it can over heat and shuts down when the processor gets hot you would not feel it though case. also make sure the vents are clean as this is were the fan blows cooler air over to cool the processor-s down.

Acer laptop wont start up.


You have corrupted files on your system, either from a hard drive beginning to go bad or from just a bad update, use your recovery console, either available during start up or by using the windows cd to boot your computer and have it run a recovery, you will have to re-apply some of your service packs afterwards. Another option in the recovery console is to use your system save points, if you have the recovery console installed then use it to restore your compter to a day before the update.
