I have an acer aspire 5535, when i turn it on it boots up and the screen stay blank. I think its stuck in sleep mode. what can i do please help??? Nothing shows up on screen what so ever, its just bl


Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.

My Acer Aspire 5551-2036 wont turn on blue light turns on screen remains black


Does it sound like the laptop booted up except the screen is black? Do you hear the fan running and the hard drive spinning? If so try the steps below.

Blank screen


Did it boot all the way? Do you hear the fan running, disk drive spinning? If it sounds like it booted but the display is black, try this:
When you press the power button do you hear fansrunning, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lightsconstantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer ofthe DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the laptop is trying toboot or may have booted, but the 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.

Possible hard drive failure


Does the splash screen come up? Most of the time if it is your hard drive the ACER splash screen will come up and then a Hard disk 0 error after that. If nothing appears on the screen then you have a bigger issue.

Is there any noise at all (Fan, hard drive spinning)? If so try hooking it to a external monitor to see if there is any movement. You might have a problem with your LCD.

Fan for my acer 3690 spins, green light is on but no display show


Look to See If Your Hard Drive/Data Indicator Light is on and blinking (or solid)..
You need to try and hook up a desktop monitor to the laptops serial port.. Reboot with the External Screen Plugged Into The Laptop.. If You See Windows Booting From The External Monitor - Then You Have A Faulty Screen, or possibly a faulty Display Cable.. Most Likely The Screen Has Failed Though... Also, Hold The Screen Up To A Bright Light while its powered on, You Might have just lost the backlight and have a display still, It will be REAL faint but holding it up to a light and looking to see if you can see Windows Running..

If No Display on the External Monitor When Connected To The Laptop, Then You Have GPU/Graphics Failure, Due To Thermal Damage.. This Is A Motherboard Issue Because The Chips Are Integrated.. A ReBake/ReFlow Of The Chips Will Get Your Video Back, Or Replacing The Motherboard.....

Acer One 1542 series.Power on but not boot.


since you reseated the memory, the last two things I would do is remove the hard drive and dvd drive.

If you remove those and you can't get video then the motherboard is bad.
