Blinking yellow light on Acer Aspire

My daughter had a problem with her laptop not booting up. When she pressed the "on" button, the yellow light would blink several times but would not turn on.

After eliminating the possibilities including checking the voltage etc., from the power cord, I grab a flashlight and looked into the ac adapter receiving port on the laptop and found that the back of the housing had broken off, probably from forcing the adapter plug in. The piece that broke off was attached to the center (positive) pin and was soldered to the MB. When the piece broke off, it separated from the MB. With no connection to the MB or the AC adapter, the battery couldn't charge and that is why the yellow lights would blink.

I hope this helps as a possibility for your situation.

If the computers lights are just yellow what does that mean?


Just Yellow when? Tell us what happens time you put the power cord in and press the power button? Does it try to boot? Do the lights blink? Hear any beeps? Hear any fans? Does anything ever appear on the screen?

When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge. Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, Remove the Memory Cover on the bottom of the laptop and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Hi i have an acer aspire one 523h-2588 and in the bios it says "IDE0 HDD Password is : Frozen" how can i get rid of it to use my laptop again cause it wont let me see my windows


Acer Aspire One BIOS Recovery The Acer Aspire One has a built-in BIOS recovery routine, which can boot into a minimal BIOS environment via a special boot block to re-flash the BIOS, even if the system does not pass POST and does otherwise not boot anymore. This procedure is also known as Crisis Disk.

First format an USB flash drive with FAT. It does not need to be bootable.

Download the latest BIOS, and extract all files. Put both FLASHIT.EXE and the BIOS file with FD suffix in the root directory of the flash drive. The files must not be in a folder. Rename the BIOS file to ZG5IA32.FD before proceeding. It only works with this exact filename.

Turn the AA1 off, and verify both battery and AC adapter are plugged in.

Press Fn and Esc simultaneously, keep them pressed and press the power button. Release Fn+Esc after a few seconds. The power button starts blinking at this point. Press it once. The AA1 will now access the files on the flash drive and initiate flashing the BIOS. After a while the power button stops blinking, and the AA1 reboots by itself. Wait patiently.

If it doesn't reboot, but keeps blinking, wait at least a few minutes before turning it off, and try again.

Laptop wont switch on fully


Did you press F8 as you boot up to get boot up options and did try the Last Known good Configuration and Safe Mode?
If these didn't work I suggest you re-install Windows.
