Had this issue with two Acers of similar make. Replacing the Motherboard resolved the issue on both.

Your memory card might not be compatible with the specs of your CPU? try to replace it with other memory card. or if you have two memory card on the slot remove the other one then restart. if does not work try to use the other one. if still not working... try to rub the gold pins of the memory card with a gum eraser before pulling in on the slot.

Hi theossva...
Try to restore your computer to an earlier time when things were working properly.

Left click on Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Restore.

This should bring you back to a time when the computer was operating properly
Please take time to rate me

My Acer Aspire has a black screen, does not boot up, does not beep, does not run post. Tried changing memory, tried a different harddrive, tried reinstalling the OS but does not read CD but CD drive lights...


Try a different power supply. Even though the CD drive lights up, it still needs to power your motherboard up which does not seem to be happening at all.

If the power supply doesn't solve it then the motherboard is bad.

One more thing: if you changed out the HD you probably did this, but make sure all the connections are tight. Take them out, plug them back in. Sometimes-- not very often-- this is the problem.

The PC powers up but, nothing on the screen and no beeps


Hi,

You need to ensure that the speaker is connected. Then you will hear the beeps.

If you hear no beeps even then, then you motherboard is not powered. Check connections.

Previous user apparently password protected Windows.


Well first off you can use the restore feature and it will only reinstall crucial windows files it won't mess with software that was already installed.

There are password recovery programs out there you would have to search for one and install the program onto a disc and boot of it (just follow the instructions)
