Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

1 Answer

When I turn on my acer aspire 6530G laptop after it displays all the icons on the screen the message "Locking your computer" immediately follows then it would go back to the screen that asks you to log-in or to switch laptop is not password-protected so I wonder why it automatically locks me out after few seconds of displaying the icons on my screen. Please help!

One tip: Hit Ctrl+Alt+Del (if one hit not work try two hits). Enter your user name and password. (no need to enter the password if you don't have one. Just hit enter). If you wasn't using the built in Administrator account (and if its not password protected type in Administrator and hit enter). Scan the PC for Viruses. And check whether there is a problem with the security log if logging enabled. (Start -> Run -> Type in Eventvwr.msc and hit Enter key and go to "Applications" and "System" and check for errors)

My Acer Aspire 6530g stopped working after I tried to install Linux. The computer went off without any error message during the installation, and now when I try to boot it, it won't even go to the BIOS....

The installation of Linux cannot affect the BIOS of your computer.
Did you install Linux on the Hard drive or did you just run a DEMO from a LiveCD?
If you used the Demo it will disappear from your computer once you turn ii off. If you did install Linux on the hard drive, it will take the whole space of the disk and you won't have any Windows OS. When it boots it boots the Linux Image. Regardless you will be prompted to select the OS you want to boot. If you do not select one of the option it will boot the first in the list.

Hibernate issue

Boot the computer into Safe Mode and try changing the Power Options.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal.

Acer Aspire 6530G black screen

There's no point getting a crisis program if you cannot see the screen in the first place.
The problem could be anything from a faulty graphics, faulty motherboard or loose cable or inverter board.
To test this connect an external monitor to the laptop and use the keyboard toggle to switch screens (hold down Fn and press the F key that has a monitor icon on it)
If the external monitor has a display on it then the problem is the inverter, inverter cable or the screen itself which if faulty.
If there is no display on the external monitor you maybe looking at a new laptop.
If you have no external monitor to test then look very close at the laptop screen, if you can just make out an image then its the inverter.
Post back if you require any more assistance.
