Hello paulanjessie,

I had a similar problem with an Acer AS5315 notebook computer. I don't know if this will work in your case but it may be worth trying. I held the [Esc] key and the power button down for about 3 to 4 seconds. Then waited for 5 seconds or so and the system came up ok. I don't know why that happened but pressing and holding the [Esc] key and power button was a successful workaround for me. I hope this can be useful for you.

I thank you for giving a rating to this solution if it has been helpful.

Have a great day,
martyshaw562

Hi my acer aspire 5315 will not boot up, i turn it on i get nothing but the little cursor in the top right hand corner...can anyone help please thank u in advance


That is probably because some important boot files are missing. What you can try is to take out the hard drive and move it to another acer aspire 5315 computer. To take out the hard drive, remove ALL electrical components (power cable, battery, etc.), open the computer's hard drive bay, and take it out VERY carefully. Make sure you do not cut the cables. That could damage the hard drive. Then, you remove the hard drive on the other acer aspire 5315 computer using the same instructions above. Then, you can identify the missing boot files (they will be in a hidden drive called System Reserved), copy them onto your computer's hidden System Reserved drive (if it's missing you'll have to create one manually), and put it back in the other acer aspire 5315 computer. Make sure that you put the wires where they were when you removed them, otherwise the hard drive might not work. Then, try turning on the computer again.

Acer aspire 5315 doesnt boot blank screen


When you power up the laptop press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios setup.
Then check your harddisk is detect or not?
Then also make sure SATA option is disabled in bios.
Then go to boot option and set first boot device as your harddrive.Then save settings and exit.
But if you even not able to enter in bios then you have reset bios settings and Refix RAM memory .
For that open back cover fo laptop and find cmos cell on motherbord pull it for 10 minutes so all settings of bios goes to factory defaults.
Let me know if you need more assistanse.
Thanks.

My srceen goes Blank


Hi,

first try booting the laptop and pressing the Fn key with the numerical ( numbered key ) that has a picture of 2 screens on it. This is for booting to an external monitor. you could also try adding an external ( pc monitor ) this will eliminate any motherboard Faults.

Secondly, the graphics chip driver may be corrupt or not installed correctly. if you have a restore cd, you could try booting the laptop, with the cd in the drive.

you can then try, to see if the settings in the bios are all correct, by booting/starting the laptop and pressing esc or F2 or delete immediately as the laptop starts. ** Be-Careful** what you adjust.
My suggestion is to look for. ** default settings tab** or load setup defaults.

these are the obvious things to try, before assuming that you have a faulty graphics chip or motherboard fault.

Acer 5315 will not start up windows


check the BIOS setup screen, when you get the ACER screen press F2 or F10 or the DEL or END or ESC key one of those will get you into the bIOS SETUP. Once there revise the boot order, make sure the CD is first to boot then HDD. Also review to see if the BIOS recosgnized the HDD. the symptom you are describing may be a bad HDD.
