i have an acer aspire 5315 that doesnt want to boot at all.
power button is pressed, fan spins, hard drive makes a noise but it stops dead without showing anything onscreen within 5 seconds. The power light is on so i still have to hold the power button down until it turns off completely.

Re: 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.

I'm having the same problem, but I don't want to have to turn off my computer EVERY time it does this. (I have not been able to shut down the laptop normally because it goes into sleep every time.) I've heard that after 3 hours it builds up an eletrical charge and you have to take the battery out, but I havn't had it on for 3 hours at a time.
You could have an overheating problem. The CPU shutsdown when it overheats and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. Check the CPU fan and heatsink assembly. The fan may have stopped spinning or spins slowly and the heatsink is clogged with dust.
Remove the dust and replace the fan if it is faulty.
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.
Just after pressing Power button try to press and hold FN+F10 if this does not work try FN+F11, you can also keep holding a FN and simultanuously pressing F10 or F11. This should take you to the system recovery screen then follow procedures from the screen. Another way is to activate hidden system restore partition on the hard drive if there is any, the simply reboot your computer.
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.
