Acer aspire 5520 startup problem

My aspire just came up with a new problem after I just found a temp fix for the old one (had to completely disable the touch pad and use an external mouse because of jumpy cursor -- screens opening and shutting by themselves, etc.) Now upon startup, before any screens come up, the power goes on and off about 4-12 times before the laptop actually boots and the acer screen shows. This can't be good for the system. What to do?

    I had the same problem with my 5520 and I changed it, for some reason it started again and when I downloaded updated drivers via windows, I no longer get the icon of my touchpad and, thus, can't disable double-click which is driving me up the wall.. Keyboard has massive lag as well.

    my touch pad some times starts to touch itself repetently and i can stop it unless i shut down the computer and turn it on in a while!!!

    Touchpad tap is the problem, I found in the mouse options a check box that when unchecked disables the tap altogether. Cursor moves just fine, scroll at left and bottom of touchpad still works. You must then use the left button to select or double-click items. Note: this is not the one for disable tap while typing, it is on the very top section of the tap settings and is the first check box.

Michelle-

I had the same problem with the cursor jumping around. My cousin bought the same computer and had the same problem! What she told me to do was go to the touchpad icon on the bottom right. Then click tapping and then check the box that says "tap off when typing."
It seems to have worked for us.

Acer Aspire 5520-5537 same issue except now the unit powers on does POST and then shuts itself off. As you stated before though that it used to power on and off 4-12 times. The unit I have does that too, without the battery inserted. If I try to power it with the battery, it goes further does post and then dies. I think the issue is related to the cheap plug on the back of the unit comes unplugged frequently and has a loose connection causing damage to the power supply on the motherboard.

This mouse pad is atrocious! I have switched to a wireless mouse and turned off the tap click feature yet this still persists...I love the computer, but this is absolutely horrendous. I do not know what im going to do for the next three years because nothing seems to work

Posted on Mar 25, 2008

Go to control panel, select mouse, turn off taps and scroll settings,
slow down speed. Apply changes. It will cure most of the problems.

My acer aspire 5520 comes on then turns off how do I fix it


I've already solved my problem, and it maybe help somebody with the same trouble...so there you go:
1st step: Let the laptop turns on and off itself until it's screen turns to a white blank one
2nd step: Power off it
3rd step: Power on tha laptop. It will start normally and give you two options of startup
4th step: Choose to start the "recovery test", then it will repair any error and will start Windowsmag-glass_10x10.gif normally

Well, that's what I've done to recover my Acer...
