Acer Aspire 5010.. Power on, but Blank screen/ hard drive light also not.

When I turn the laptop "ON", I can hear the fan, the Cd- rom light blinks.

    THANKS FOR ADVICE..........



    But it does POWER ON, but not fully......



    as the fan comes on, i see the CD-ROM light flashing... Power light on............ but I see nothing coming on screen also , the hard drive light not flashing... as it does, when computer bootin.



    but then when i keep turing it off/on by pushing the power button..... once in a while the screen does start.



    I think it has something to do with RAM or Hard-drive.

    r start-up.

Hi,
This could be a Power/Switch Problem.
Faulty Hard-Drive.
Solution:- Leave the laptop turned Of And charge the battery to Full Capacity. ( usually between 4-16 Hours ) depending on capacity.
This will also fully charge the CMOS ( memory battery )
then boot the laptop up, and see if this solves your problem.
If not i,d suggest running a scandisk or hard-drive diagnostic program, to ensure that you have no Viruses-bad sectors on the hard-drive.
If you need further assistance please don,t hesitate to ask for more help and advice.

    Hi,

    It,ll be your hard-drive or connecter from hard-drive to Mobo ( motherboard )

    If it was ram, you,ll get a series of post-code fault beeps.

XP Pro! Now there*s your problem Mythbusters would say. Hence its going to become obsolete of security service after 4/2014, its not that MS is going to make it easy to install "new bastardo ones" into the system...

Your hard drive may have died. and if this is not the case and you can hear the drive spinning, then your monitor power cord from screen to motherboard has failed.

Can you hear the system fan running? If the fan fails, the PC shuts down itself to protect the processor from FRYING.

Could be a bad memory chip or a hard drive crash. Can you hear the hard drive engage? If so, is there any clicking or dull thunking sounds? Both of these are indicators of a hard drive failure.

Power ON/ nothing on screen-


Hi,
enter the bios setup, if you can boot the computer/laptop. Usually F2 on bootup, it will say entering Setup.
Then scroll through the pages to see if your hard-drive is recognised by the system.
