It sounds like the battery may be going bad, not holding a charge anymore, or the processor may be overheating and shutting itself down as a precaution. Some BIOS may have a temp reading if you enter the bios at boot up, usually by pressing del key or F1 key, it should tell you at reboot, right at the first second or two after power is turned on "press del key to enter setup" or something similar.
If your BIOS does not have a temp readout, you can download freeware temp reading tools from cnet.com.
Make sure that your fan is blowing out the port in the back and that it is not obstructed by something.
If it is none of these, you may have a virusmy acer aspire 5315 keeps turning itself off any - 2_bing.gif, In which case, try the following:
While the system is booting --before the xp logo shows, hold down the F8 key. This will bring up a menu. Choose "start windows in safe mode with networking".
The os will start in safe mode. run a virus scan, defrag and scandisk2_bing.gif, then restart the system. If is still wont run normally, do the same thing then run a registry fixing program such as uniblue registrybooster, then reboot. If it still won't run right, you may want to reinstall the OS and see if that works. If reinstalling the OS after formating the drive doesn't fix it, it is definitely a hardware problem.
good luck.

Great advice from jamespcastle.. but simple steps first are try a hoover (henry is good or similar type) put the wand nozzle over the fan heat exit and any other exit underneath the laptop and vac away for about 1 minute... you will hear the fan wizzing around.. this worked a treat with mine..if this fails let me know as i have another possible fix.
Good Luck

I have an acer aspire 5315 and the screen goes black I have tried to go into set up and I have taken out bateries etc but it's still not working . Any help is greatly appreciated thanks


Hello mariawint589,

The following instructions are from the Acer Aspire 5315 user's guide (page 35):

The computer's power management system automatically blanks the screen to save power. Press any key to turn the display back on, three hings might be the cause:

*The brightness level might be too low. Press <Fn>+<right-arrow key> (Increase) to adjust the brightness level.

*The display device might be set to an external monitor. Press the display toggle hotkey <Fn>+<F5> to toggle the display back to the computer

*If the sleep indicator is lit, the computer is in sleep mode. Press and release the power button to resume.

best option would be getting from acer itself, they should have spareparts for your laptop, or you can bring the drive itself to your local computer shop so that you could compare the dimension and specs..

Hello sean_FULL,

The green e button at the top right corner is called the Empowering Key. It is used to launch the Acer Empowering technology on the Acer Aspire 5315 computer.

Here's a good link to the Acer support web site that has more information about the Acer Empowering Technology: http://support.acer-euro.com/empowering_technology/

Acer Aspire 5315 micro dont work after installing Windows 7 :(


Hello rudifuhr37,

There might be a hardware compatibility problem with Windows 7 and the microphone driver. The following two web sites might offer information that can better help to find a possible solution.

1). The Microsoft Windows 7 Hardware Compatibility List. It can only be viewed with Internet Explorer.
http://windows7news.com/2009/09/20/windows-7-hardware-compatibility-list/

2). The Acer support Windows 7 eligible systems link shows all the acer computers that are fully compatible with windows 7. (Acer Aspire 5315 is NOT in this list !):
