Question about Acer Aspire 1360 Notebook

1 Answer

Gfx card or overheating or power management or memory or what? problem

I have the Acer 1363WLMi. Standby mode does not work, frezzes with black screen once activated. I dont use it so that is not a major issue.
The thing that bugs me the most it is graphic adapter issue.
It will work fine for not really specific period of time. Crashes powered on battery, while charging and on AC power as well.
The problem looks like this - will start with small vertical lines running randomly through the screen and will just get worse - the screen will go black for a second, fan will start (!) and it will eventually crash with frozen distorted screen and one long and two short beeps. That seems to say that the display adapter is malfunctioning but reset it and it will go back to normal. It kinda starts with a ‘click’ in the hard drive.
how to fix the darn thing? s.o.s.!

Hey, I had a 1522wlmi, witch is the brother model of your laptop, the models have issues, parts fail within 12months. Your only option to get the problem fixed is to send your vga card to www.acerparts.com by ordering a replacement model. Only option is repairflow as far as i know at the time.

I had my vgaboard at acerparts for 6months, I got it back but had issues with games, i send it back waited a few months and got my money back.

Then I send my laptop to my local acer. It was analysed since it had taken more than 3 months to replace my card. I they suggested to repair the laptop for 300eur thats around 400-500 usd. Im pretty sure it wont last more than 12months so in the long run your better off buying a new laptop, dont buy acer.

Good luck.

Once i log onto my acer aspire one D255 the screen goes black and it wont even show me the task manager. i have already re booted and shut down


test it in safe mode. if it works, do a restore to a previous working date or last known-good configuration. if you cannot get to the Windows log in at all, reinstall your OS. if nothing shows up on the screen from the time you power it on, test an external display and if it does not work, sounds like your video card is faulty and needs a replacement

I have installed windows XP on Acer Aspire 4520 and since it was not booting up normally i installed all the drivers in Safe Mode. Even after doing the same it's not starting normally just a blank (Black)...


your computer your laptop will just shut itself down and get a black screen unexpectedly, which is due to: power overload in the AC adapter, overheated processor / clogged fan, overheated battery, pushing the power button, Windows telling it to, the BIOS telling it to, loose wires (especially the power cord), or intermittent short circuits. The most common problem is cooling. the battery should be removed from the laptop and allowed to cool to room temperature before attempting to use again.

Screen stays black


when you first power on do you see bios info on the screen? if not (since its a laptop) chances are onboard video card maybe bad.
if you do see it do you see windows start showing at all? in either case wether you see it or not try booting up in safe mode (start hitting F8 key right after bios goes away) and if it works. if you are able to see screen in safe mode chances are drivers are corrupt i would say go in device manage and uninstall display adapter and restart computer and let it boot normally and see it make any difference... if it works get new drivers from manufacturer and install.

let me know if it helps.

Problem black screen for acer aspire 5050


Probably the video card. Check in Device manager to ensure the drivers are not corrupt. If they are there will be a yellow, red or black sign next to the video device. Right click, uninstall the driver then reboot. The plug and play will load the correct driver. If that does not work then replacing the video card is needed.

Acer Extensa 5210 laptop wont boot


Try the following:
1) Remove power cord, battery and hold the power switch down for at least 30 seconds.
2) Remove and reinstall your memory module(s).

If those don't do it, get back to me for more ideas.
Thanks!
