Question about Acer Aspire 5520-5908 Notebook

2 Answers

Acer laptop wont start up.

My acer aspire 5520 laptop after updating windows today went to restart and the lights turned on as if it were starting up, the fans turned on and then it shuts down. and keeps trying to start up again.
I took it apart and cleaned the fans and stuff out and tried to turn it on again and it booted up to the acer picture then went to a blue screen that said "stop" and a bunch of numbers. After that i took out the battery and put it back in and tried to restart it agian, and it would just attempt to boot up and shut down again. I have no idea what to do and i have only had problems with this laptop in the last year, its only 2 years old it should be working fine!

You could try a hard reboot to fix the issue. It only takes a couple of minutes to try. Watch this short video to see how:

You have corrupted files on your system, either from a hard drive beginning to go bad or from just a bad update, use your recovery console, either available during start up or by using the windows cd to boot your computer and have it run a recovery, you will have to re-apply some of your service packs afterwards. Another option in the recovery console is to use your system save points, if you have the recovery console installed then use it to restore your compter to a day before the update.

My acer aspire 5520 when i press power fan comes up then shut


From your brief description, it seems that your hardware is starting correctly, and then it tries to load Windows. Windows then fails to load fully, and so Windows forces the computer to restart.

So, turn the computer on.
Immediately press F8 (again and again) until a "start-up" menu is displayed. Select "Safe Mode" and see if Windows will start.

If it does, use the "System Restore" application within "System Tools" within "Accessories" to go "back-in-time" to a date/time when your computer *was* working correctly. Restore to that date/time.

Acer aspire 5520 laptop. Is it dead?


To verify it isn't a battery issue you can try taking the battery out completely and plugging in the A/C adapter and turning it on.

Without more information it's hard it's hard to diagnose your issue more specificially. Do you get any lights on the front?
