I sounds as if it is a hard-drive activity light (it will flicker to indicate that the hard-drive is either being written to or read).

Even though you are not doing anything on the computer, the operating system or other programs may well be up to something in the background which are causing the hard-drive to be accessed.

I wouldn't worry about it!

My acer aspire z3100 all in one has a black screen when powering it on, already changed the mother board and battery,when turning on you can hear the fans and the blue led light for power on


I understand why, for space-saving reasons, some people choose to purchase an all-in-one computing device. The inevitable downside is that when the display fails long before the device itself is obsolete, then you are stuck with no options. Chances are that the back light circuit or the LCD panel itself has failed here. Repair of a unit of this age is not cost effective. Replacement is the better option.

Try and start it in safe mode. Rebbot the computer and as soon as soon as the computer starts to boot hit F8 several times this should bring it up in safe mode. If you get the compputer up in safe mode try to restore to a different date.

My Acer Aspire L3600 desktop pc keeps freezing up on me, most of the time i am not running any big programs at all just surfing the net writing doc's etc. why is this happening and how can i fix it?


I recently had this problem with my Aspire especially after I upgraded the RAM and found that it was running hot. I solved this by adding a fan tray underneath it with 3 fans that run off the USB port. I bought htis for about $7 / £5 / E4.5 from eBay. Try searching for laptop fan and you will see load so them and yes they really do work. It is also wrth running the vaccum cleaner with a soft brish around the air grilles and also in the RAM area under the lower case cover.

Cd stuck in Acer Aspire L3600


If you look on the door of your cd drive next to the button you push to eject the cd there is a small hole.  This is essentially the ememrgency release.  Unfold a paper clip and push it straight into the hole.  Once it releases you will feel the paperclip pushing down on a button.  you will feel and hear the drawer release.

Login trouble


A password is put in place as a security measure. It prevents unauthorized use by anyone but the entitled user. Therefore, if the password is not known then the computer cannot be accessed. I cannot provide you instructions on how to by pass this as I have no way of knowing if you are the owner of this computer. Take it to a pc shop and once proof of ownership is established it will be fixed quickly. I'm sure you understand, if someone else had this pc and they were instructed on how to get in you would not be happy. Cheers, good luck.
