3050 will not boot

My aspire 3050 will not boot. The light comes on for about 2 seconds, then goes off. I have taken the battery out and held down the power button for 20 seconds...this did not help. Is there something else I can try before sending it to be worked on?

Try a different power supply. Plug in the AC with the battery out.

My acer aspire will not boot up. After starting the process it flashes a quick screen with an error for registry file failure and restarts boot process

As it starts up.. hold down F8. An option for a Safe Mode should be available. You should choose that and once you get through to Windows go to Start > Run and type in "chkdsk c: \r"

Seems to be a problem of not enough power.

First check the voltage output of the charger(adapter) and match it with its specs.

Also try to reset the hardware using the following steps:

1 Disconnect battery and the charger
2 Let it sit for 1-2 minutes.
3 Press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds.
4 Reconnect battery and charger and try to start by pressing the power button.

Please do the following to reformat

1) Put your recovery disc into your PC and allow the PC to restart
2) The laptop should pick the disc up and boot from it
3) Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the rest of the install

Acer aspire one power button comes on but screen doesn't come on.

1/ Take a close look at the display in bright light; can you see anything there? (If so then the CCFL (or its power supply) needs replacing on the display
2/ hook up an external monitor and see if that works (or at least if the light stays green on the monitor)
3/ Any boot beep? any "Windows sound"?
4/ try removing the battery and (using only external power) see if it starts.
4/ remove the battery AND the external supply, hold the power switch in at least 30 seconds. Hoojk it up again, try it.

Acer Aspire 3050 will not boot - LEDs flashing 8 times

My Gateway did that it was due to the power adaptor being loose on the motherboard. Push the cord in and rotate it and continuously push the power button if it starts that is your problrm. You can temporarily fix it with tape once you discover where the cord wants to be or you can use a clamp.

Lights come on but no fans or powerup


Please follow the steps below.

1. Please removed the battery and unplugged the power supply.
2. Held down the power button for 45 seconds.
3. After 45 seconds reinstalled the battery and the power supply and pushed the power button and if it works then you don't need to replace your motherboard.
4. Else try it couple of times or up to five times before it worked if worst comes to worst.

Acer Aspire 5920 will not boot at all...

The power button may not work, that is most common in laptops, or you have a short.

Black, cannot boot up... etc.

Try taking out battery and plug in power. If it works, battery is faulty.
If not, try taking out your hard disk plug in power, if it works, hard disk is faulty.Try taking out memory card, if there's a sound, memory card faulty. If no sound, it's your motherboard that is causing the error.

Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.

Acer won't boot up

when any computer posts/boots up.
it goes through a sequence of initialising things before booting.
i,ve been repairing computers for around 12-15 years.
1st i,d try removing the ram ( memory ) usually underneath the laptop, behind a screw cover. Or ocassionally under the keyboard.
if 2 sticks of ram are installed, remove the battery. and 1 stick of Ram. put battery on and try to boot. if no joy with that try the other stick of ram. and replace battery-Re-boot.
If this works you have 1 stick of faulty ram or faulty ram slot on motherboard. Failing this. I suspect that the CPU has overheated, and therefore a replacement Processor should solve the problem.

Thankyou for using fixya.
