Question about Acer Aspire 4315 Notebook

2 Answers

Acer Debug went blank screen as if dead.

I went to debug my acer aspire Model ZG5 for testing ports with D40:0 command. By accident I droped my external drive attached to the left USB and the acer aspire just went black out before I finalize the debug by pressing Q. Now I can not longer see anything and just went blank each time I power it on.

Can anybody please help me bring back my acer? I am Aspiring so much to repair this as it is a gift from someone during my Bday.

Thank you .

You may have shorted something in the usb port. When the drive fell, did it's usb cord pull on the usb port on the laptop? If so, you may need a new mainboard. Try booting the laptop with the power cord plugged in and the battery removed. Also, do you see the acer logo at all when you power the laptop on? Let me know.

Why Does Acer charge $100 for removing BIOS? Why Can't they simply help?


I dont know why but maybe they think you stole it ? but you have a receipt of payment hmmm you might have to take it a little further legal but that might cost $
However you could try this

Restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer

As the computer is booting repeatadly press the F8 key as the computer is booting


If done properly the user should get to a screen similar to the below screen.

Select the option for Safe mode command prompt only

Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:

Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt

Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Debugging Mode

Start Windows Normally
Reboot
Return to OS Choices Menu


Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.


select safe mode with command prompt


Then type at the C:\> prompt: type

DEBUG

and hit Enter. You'll see a dash (-) at the DEBUG prompt. Now type:

o 70 2e

which will show as -o 70 2e at the DEBUG prompt. Hit Enter. Then type:

o 71 ff

and hit Enter. Finally type:

Q

and hit Enter one last time to quit DEBUG back to the C:\> prompt.
Now you're ready to reboot your PC, and press the appropriate key or key
combo (look it up in your motherboard manual if you don't know it) to access
your BIOS Setup.


Youll notice the password is gone.


If this fails try typing


At command prompt type debug
you will get a - prompt where you can type the following (<enter> means press enter, not type enter*)

A <ENTER>
MOV AX,0 <ENTER>
MOV AX,CX <ENTER>
OUT 70,AL <ENTER>
MOV AX,0 <ENTER>
OUT 71,AL <ENTER>
INC CX <ENTER>
CMP CX,100 <ENTER>
JB 103 <ENTER>
INT 20 <ENTER>
<ENTER> just hit enter on this line
G <ENTER>
Q <ENTER>

Basic BIOS password - works 9.9 times out of ten

If this fails you will need to


Select safe mode with networking to download

you could download all of these or just one save them to a usb drive for later use if one fails to remove the password


http://www.tech-faq.com/reset-bios-password.html


At some stage you might need to press Ctrl+Enter rather than just Enter if on a Dell Latitude E5410


http://majorgeeks.com/CmosPwd_d239.html

A CMOS BIOS password recovery tool

Editors note: This tool should only be used by experienced computer users.


Please see the enclosed read me if you would like to run it from Windows.

Failure to follow instructions (from Windows) will cause your anti-virus to flag this as a virus.


Hope this helps.

Acer Aspire One notebook model zG5, i hear the hard drive come on, but screen is blank and the keyboard does not respond.


Hello,

connect the laptop to an external monitor, turn it on see if the monitor will display.

If the monitor displays, then it means your screen inverter or screen bulb is the cause of the laptop screen being blank.

Also if the monitor does not display anything, the maybe the graphic card is the cause of the problem.

This would involve you taking the laptop to a repairer

Take care.

Cracked screen

you do not need to replace the converter- As long as your screen is just cracked then the converter is fine. Converter may be bad if your screen is really dim or just blank.

Acer aspire one(linux). model no zg5.cer


Go back into your BIOS, set the settings to default, save changes and exit. Put the Windows in the cd and restart the notebook. You should get a screen that have :to boot from cd, press any key...." From there, follow instructions. This should do the trick. Good Luck.
