Attach a external monitor and reboot -- if it comes up then the LCD on the laptop may be broken / damaged. Usually this is an issue with the back light from my experience. This is where I would start -- there are many other more complex issues it may be as well but this is the simplest. If the laptop was recently purchased I would look into what is covered by your warranty.

Have you tried holding the power button down until it shuts down completely, then unplug the AC adapter, remove the battery, put it all back together then try powering back up?

Acer aspire 5515(laptop) screen is black turns on screen stayscompletly black...no acer logo nothing just a black screen. power button comes up green u can hear the fan and harddrive start up


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.

Actually this is a hard drive fault most likely, or a faulty had drive. If you don't have a recovery disk you are going to have to start the machine and try to do a recovery to boot repair. You can usually access this with F10 or F12, not really sure on a gateway.

  1. take out the memory
  2. turn on again without memory (you should hear long beep sound) and turn it off again
  3. clean memory using eraser (better if you have spare memory to replace it)
  4. now try again
  5. if not working, checks whether the work properly? and clean the fan from dust. and try to switch it on again.
I look forward to hearing further.

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

Doesn't sound too good - Could be a bad ram chip (right on the bottom of the laptop under a panel - try removing one or the other chips) or possibly bad motherboard (which is definately not worth it on a several year old gateway machine if you could even find one)

Let us know if the ram does it.
