Laptop does not post: (then it is a hardware problem)
· try the following first.check battery is seated correctly and that the power pack is functioning,
· if the battery has gone flat and the power pack is not working ,the laptop will not start.
· Remove any hardware you may have installed prior to you having the problem.
· remove the screw(s) holding the cover plate on the back of the laptop where the ram lives and remove the memory sticks,
· clean the gold edges both sides, with rubbing alcohol or a pencil eraser, and re-insert them, (not an ink eraser as it will do damage)
· swap them around if you have more than one,
· try one at a time.
· if you only have one, borrow one from a friend or try the ram in your friends laptop ,if that's possible, or
· get a friend or family member to download a "memory chip diagnostic's" program such as memcheck 1.70 and boot up of it ,it will check your ram ,if not
· take the ram to your local pc shop and ask them to check it for you (they may do that for you)
· if you can establish that the ram and power pack is ok, try a boot-able anti virus disc and a recovery /system disc's , if that don't work,
· it may be that the motherboard or the cpu is failing
· Generally a dead hard drive would not stop the laptop from posting.

good luck with that and let me know how you get on

Hi, On my aspire L310 the logo ACER stays on to long (over a min). I checked in BIOS but dont see any way to reduce or to eliminate the logo. Do you have any solution for my problem? Sinerely...


Acer displays that logo to cover up the 'ugly' POST code that runs every time your computer starts up. If it used to do this quickly before but has now slowed down then your computer may be discovering various hardware issues on startup. This can also happen if your CMOS battery (which keeps the internal clock working) is running down.

First thing to do is update your BIOS by visiting Acer's support site and installing the latest one they have for our model.

If this does nothing to improve the POST time and you feel comfortable taking apart your min-desktop. Check for bubbling capacitors.
These can be replaced.

If all else fails, check the CMOS battery. It is a small coin sized battery connected to the motherboard. It is a standard battery you can find at the drugstore.

Acer laptop. it won't start up, when i press the start button, it shows nothing but black screen, and i dont know what to do .... I have the same problem i have an ACER ASPIRE 5920, when i turn my laptop...


hi

in both the computers unplug the power cord and any external device attached to the system.

Press the power while the power cord if unplugged for 1 min exact, plug the power cord and see if this works. As there is extra power on the mother board which needs to be drained out

Acer travel mate 2420 as soon as I plug the power source. it starts a series of 2 beeps that never stops. What is all this about?


Try taking the battery out and see what happens. That could be a low battery signal. If it is got to display settings then go to screensaver click on the power button at the bottom ok go to each on of the tabs at top and find the one that has your batteries on it . Look for alarms and turn them off and then restart and see if it still happens.

The display on my new Acer Aspire One is upside down


Hi SSandee -

There are some hot key combinations that I think will help you out. Here they are:

Ctrl-Alt-Up - right side up

Ctrl-Alt-Right - 90 degrees

Ctrl-Alt-Down - 180 degrees

Ctrl-Alt-Left - 270 degrees
(If that doesn't work, try Ctrl-Shift-R)

Hope that helps,

Take Care,

Michael

I hace a Acer Travel Mate 4001lc, I tried to upgrade the HD from 60 GB to 250GB but the Laptop just recognized 130GB


that sounds like its a limitation of the laptop try updating the bios. if it still stays the same see if you can go into disk management and partition the other half of the drive. it would show up as unpartitioned space.

Check that all the power supply units are switched on( Wall Plug, UPS, CPU), If all is ok and the problem exists, replace the CMOS battery.( if the sys works replace your CMOS Battery, configure the cmos settings also)
