Question about Acer Aspire 5100-5022 Notebook

1 Answer

Power ON/ nothing on screen-

ACER- 5010 notebook/laptop

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. then its ok for a few times.

then again it starts......

sometimes when I take the battery off.- mess arouund. hit it , do something, dont know what & then restart it, then it starts fine....
but then sometimes it doesnt.

IS IT A SYSTEM PROBLEM OR HARDWEAR!!!!

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

    Hi Drfuzz,
    I had knocked back a few pints one nite and woke up to a sound of my speakers crackling and nothing on my screan. After further investigation I noticed a puddle of what appeared to be water surrounding my Acer Aspire 5610. For a time or two the screan would come on during a power up that would say vista is trying to repair the problem and that the unit might restart several times, and the repair may take hours to finish repairing....I'm sure you've seen that window. But at that time at least it was displaying "something" on my monitor, the hard drive lite was blinking at that time and now its not. All my lights with the exception of the monitor and hard drive lites come on including dvd-rw. Any questions, concerns, tips, ANYTHING?

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.

Black screen.


A few questions up ahead please:
a. Is the power button lighting up when you press it or power on your laptop?

b. Is the battery fully charged?

c. is the power cable/charger still good when you connect to mains supply?

**If you answered YES to all the above...

Your laptop screen may be bad and as such must be replaced.

Otherwise, The windows operating system may have CRASHED.

If this is so, then you can try out this system recovery tips as the last resource:

1. try remove the hard drive which you can access by opening the back cover as shown in the owner's manual.

2. next, connect this through an external usb casing to another system and backup all files on the hard drive.

3. if you don't have an acer recovery cd(s) for your laptop, try get someone who has and can help you burn the software for your model and make.

4. next, format the hard drive before you reinstall it back into your laptop.

5. power on your laptop and continously press F8 to enter the bios setup.

6. Select bootup sequence and select boot from cd drive.

7. first reinstall a lower version windows os by inserting a bootable system software.

8. after installation, keep the cd rom drive open and shut down your laptop.

9. insert the acer system recovery cd into the cd rom drive and close shut.

10. Restart your laptop then, Follow the instructions and prompts.

Your laptop will be restored to the way it was originally from the manufacturer.

Power lights come on the fan spins battery charges, but nothing else works


This sounds very much like a dead motherboard. I would suggest you get a professional to look at this or send it to acer. Visit thier site if you wish to. I would offer more help however laptop parts are expensive and tedious to replace.

Toshiba A75 Wont Boot up


It sounds like you may not have made a good connection to the motherboard from the screen when you put everything back together.

When you press the power button does the screen come on and then go off or does it not come on at all ?

If it comes on then turns off try to eject the CD-Rom that will be a definitive test of whether your power is still on, assuming your cd-rom is not totally mechanical.

Wont come on!


Starting with the easy stuff: Try plugging in the power cord, but not the battery.
If that works, your battery is either dead, or the circuit for it is shorted out.
Are there any signs of life? When you press the power button, do you hear any fans? do see any lights?
Does the screen flicker? Your RAM may be dead if it does.

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


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.

Acer travelmate 292elcI problem starting


Hi, sorry to hear you are having problems. When this happens it usually suggests that the CPU/system board has failed. If the laptop is still under warranty I would suggest taking it back because this is something that will be covered and they should be able to fix it or replace the laptop itself. If not you may have to pay to have the system board/CPU replaced. Good luck and hope this helps. Si :)
