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 have an acer aspire 5315 and the screen goes black I have tried to go into set up and I have taken out bateries etc but it's still not working . Any help is greatly appreciated thanks


Hello mariawint589,

The following instructions are from the Acer Aspire 5315 user's guide (page 35):

The computer's power management system automatically blanks the screen to save power. Press any key to turn the display back on, three hings might be the cause:

*The brightness level might be too low. Press <Fn>+<right-arrow key> (Increase) to adjust the brightness level.

*The display device might be set to an external monitor. Press the display toggle hotkey <Fn>+<F5> to toggle the display back to the computer

*If the sleep indicator is lit, the computer is in sleep mode. Press and release the power button to resume.

If this solution is helpful please click a thumbs-up rating.

Have a great day,

My acer aspire 5315 wont turn on I press button and it lights up as if gonna come on but screen stays blank and then it powers out its only 1 year old help


Maybe the screen has some problems, or try clicking to the power button for some minutes, or Try charging the laptop, or try to change the laptop's battery.

This is all I know, wish it works :)

Acer aspire one, won't wake up from sleep mode, screen blank


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.

Blank screen. Won't turn on.


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.

ACER 5315 wil not boot only shows a blank screen with a cursor


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,

How to restore my acer aspire 5315 back to factory settings i have tried every thing i can think i press f8 on startup then boot logging but nothing happens HELP?


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.

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.

Acer Aspire 5315 won't boot, black screen


I had the same symptoms on friends laptop. She had nothing to lose so gave me carte blanc.

Took out battery (to eliminate as problem) plugged in power, and powered up

Power light OK, HD flashed, CD flashed, then black screen. Powered down.

Did the following:

1) took cover off of fan/circuit board (see http://www.insidemylaptop.com/ for details). (4 screws)

2) take out fan (3 screws) and find huge amount of gunk on cooling fins at fan disch. Blew out with compressed air. Also cleaned fan blades.(reboot shows didn't fix.)

3) Repeated step 2, Pulled out memory sticks and cleaned terminals by rubbing with lint free cloth. Replaced memory sticks.

4) System boots normally. Replaced battery. Boots normally.

DAMN I'M GOOD!
