Laptop acer 5420

Wont boot or turn on

    It powers on for a moment, acts like it's going to boot then clicks and shuts down. Nothing ever comes up on screen. It did this once before, and once I finally got it to boot I ran recovery on it, and the problem went away for a few months. Seems the software on this thing is integrated deeply into the hardware. Virus or something. I let my mother use it and my wife use it. My mother is hopelessly inept and ALWAYS loads systems with every piece of software that asks from every website that asks.

Hi Zero

The power supply may be dead. Have you got another one to try, or a mates to borrow and check that your is good or bad. This is the first thing to do to sort out your problem

Acer extenza 5420.how do i force it to go into safe mode?


On Windows computers, you need to press F8 during startup. This will give you a list of boot options and will allow you to select Safe Mode.
If you want it to book to safe mode every time, that's different.

If you have another monitor you can hook that up to the blue connector( VGA) This is usually on the side or on the back. If you get a picture then your internal video might be bad.
