I'm assuming that when you turned it on, all you got was a black screen (you didn't say anything different).
First, make sure your laptop screen has been chosen as the display screen. On each laptop, there is a Fn and special function key combo that will allow you to switch between the laptop and an external monitor. Press that combination of keys several times.
Next try to boot in safe mode by restarting the computer and pressing F8 until you see the menu.
Next, connect an external monitor to the SVGA port.
If none of these is working for you, your video card has most likely quit on you.

Acer aspire 5515(laptop) screen is black turns on screen stayscompletly black...no acer logo nothing just a black screen. power button comes up green u can hear the fan and harddrive start up


If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3598095-faulty_laptop_lcd_screen

I have a black screen when i push the power button, it wont turn on but i hear the fan


i have had a problem like this but im not sure if its the same.
I had dropped my laptop and the whole thing just went black. i would press the power button and the power light would come on but the screen would just stay black and the eventually when my laptop heated up the fan would go on but still there would be a black screen. I later realized that my motherboard had been damaged. and this is a very serious problem and new motherboards cost nearly just as much as the laptop itself.

So if you have the same problems as i had then your motherboard has been damaged and you will have to get it replaced

The screen my acer aspire one is black, the power buttton is illuminated and the battery charging light is also. I can hear the motor/fan humming


Your laptop is not POSTing, this can be repaired by a computer technician or if it is under warranty return it. Usually it is the mainboard that goes faulty, but the computer technician will be able to find the faulty component and replace it. Your laptop will be ready to go in no time!

My acer aspire one aoa 150 shows a power light on and i can hear the fan but there is nothing but a black screen.


Your hard drive may have died. and if this is not the case and you can hear the drive spinning, then your monitor power cord from screen to motherboard has failed.

  3. clean memory using eraser (better if you have spare memory to replace it)

  5. if not working, checks whether the work properly? and clean the fan from dust. and try to switch it on again.
