Acer laptop wont boot -- -- please help me

Hi i just found this site and it looks really good and very helpful, having browsed if for over an hour i decided to ask for help with my problem.

My laptop when turned on does the following;
The hard disk fires up the leds come on and then after about 5-10 seconds everything stops with just the power led remaining on. There is no life coming from the monitor. I have tried to boot from disk but i dont get any different reaction at all. I took it apart a month ago and tried to fix this problem but to no avail, i have since bought a mew imac and was going to bin the acer but having found this site i thought i would give it another shot and hopefully regain the use of it for my son to use.
please help, thanks again its a great web site, keep up the good work.

    I am just off to bed now, its 3 am here in vienna austria but i will check it tomorrow. I am sure though there is nothing visible in the screen. The HD does not seem to run long enough to enable anything to get that far. Am i missing the point? would the inverter problem stop the screen and in doing so stop the HD from moving to the boot process.
    Thanks for the quick reply i will check it tomorrow anyway, thank. By the way the fan works during all this if that makes any difference.

    Just to add to that, i took the HD to a shop a while ago and they told me it was working ok.
    I will add to this in the morning thanks again.

    Hi Again
    Ok i dug out the pc from the cupboard and proceeded to turn it on.
    The HD spins for about 2-3 seconds only and the HD led flashes once, during this the fan spins but stops at the same time as the HD.
    I shone a torch onto the screen but there is no text or anything visible at all. I also removed and re seated the HD and the Ram. The battery holds no charge at all but it is running from the mains and the power light stays on always.
    I dont have access to an external monitor at this time.
    Any further help much appreciated.

    I have an Advent 7036 which has been quite a good machine over the past 4 years, It has now developed a problem. The laptop was working one minute then it knockrd itself off for no apparent reason. Since then whenever i press the start button to turn it on, the fan comes on. the start up LED blinks, and the DVD disc drive also starts up as it should, but there is nothing on the screen (completly black). The hard drive repeatedly makes a clicking sound (as if its trying to start up. The laptop will not start up, any suggestions? Could it be the CPU, thats what i'm thinking. The power source is good. Please help if you can

The lamp inverter in the screen may be out .
hold the light at an ange do you see any text as it boots,
connect an external monitor does it work.
if no light but text then likely the inverter ,
if no ext monitor activity then boot post has failed ,
memory /cpu/ etc may have issue .

How do I get the battery out of my acer laptop

Your Model of Aspire has a different battery release method, see attached pic on how to do it. This is a pic from your User Manual, you can download it from here Download Acer Aspire E1 572
. I suspect that the information you have been given regarding battery removal and passwords refers to removing the cmos battery as in a PC in the hope that it will clear Bios activated passwords.

Button keeps blinking

It sounds like it could be either the battery is going bad and not holding a charge or the adapter is. I have had really good luck with similar problems going to places like Batteries +, and large electronic retailers, and my favorite the small local mom and pop computer store; where I end up asking them If I could try one of the adapters from the floor model to eliminate if is a faulty adapter. Other then that I'd if its not out of warranty contact Acers online chat support at

The Acer Aspire is a high-performance laptop that includes a fast processor, widescreen display and an internal wireless card. In addition to these premium features, certain models also include one-touch Bluetooth access. If you have an Acer, enabling the Bluetooth is very easy and will only take a few seconds.

1.Turn on your computer and wait for Windows to fully boot. Then log in as an administrator. You will not be able to use Bluetooth under a non-administrator account.

2.Press the button with the Bluetooth symbol on the left side of the computer. This will launch the Bluetooth utility. From here you can sync and manage Bluetooth peripherals.

3.Press the Bluetooth button again to disable Bluetooth. This will disable all connections, but the utility will save your settings so the same devices will sync with the computer again when Bluetooth is re-enabled.

I hope you may find it very helpful.

How do i reset my computer to an earlier date?

Most computers have a RTC or "real time clock" in the BIOS. BIOS (or "Basic Input Output System") controls how data gets into and out from the processor (via keyboard, disk, etc.). Be careful making changes. The BIOS is normally only accessable when the computer is powered on or reset, and then only while performing the POST (or "Power On Self Test"). At this time your screen may display text describing memory, drives, controllers, etc. Some machine have a "silent boot" enabled which displays a manufacturer's graphic or logo instead of this data. It is during this time the the BIOS may be accessed. Depending on the manufacturer of your computer, a key (Delete, Escape, F1 or some other) or key combination (ALT + F1, ALT + S, or some other) will be needed. It is required to press the key or key combination prior to the Operating System loading message(s). This can be done be repeatedly pressing the key (or key combination) once every second (or two) during the POST. Holding the key(s) down the entire time - or pressing them too often will result in an error, and require starting over again.

Once the BIOS screen is presented, you will have to scroll the entire page(s) to find the clock. Most BIOS brands have more than just a single page of settings. Using the the up, down, left, right, PgUp, PgDn & Enter keys - navigate to the clock hours and minutes and adjust as needed. Make sure that you SAVE changes before exiting the BIOS screen. Upon exit, the computer will reboot with your settings.

Your Operating System may also provide a way for you to change the system time (and date) as well. Try clicking on the time / date to see if it will bring up a dialog box that allows you to make the change.

I hope this helps and good luck! If my answer was helpful, please rate it "4 thumbs up" Thanks!

Freezes on the warm boot screen MC9000

This can be for a number of reasons.

First thing would be to try and cold boot the device:-

Remove battery half way, hold power button and trigger, push battery in fully until click and then release power and trigger

If that fails next thing would be to try and re-flash the operating system. This is done by using an SD card and loading the latest operating files onto it. The SD card slot is located under the keypad. A cross head screwdriver is required to remove the keypad. Search on symbol software download site for the latest. The download also has a readme with detailed instructions. Once the files are on perform a cold boot.

Remove battery half way, hold power button and trigger, push battery in fully until click and then release power and trigger. Drop the terminal in a cradle so that it runs on external power.

Hope this helps.
