Question about Acer Aspire 1804WSMi Notebook

ACER Aspire 1804 LT won't boot

We have an ACER Aspire 1804 WSMi laptop that is probably 6 yrs old. When we turn it on there is no screen visible just the hum of the computer. It started to do this and our son said take out the hard drive and then put it back in. We did that and it worked but then when it happened again it didn't work. Now it is always a black screen when we turn it on. Do you know what does this mean?

From what you describe it sounds like you have some kind of hardware problem possibly related to the hard-drive connection. Try starting it with the hard-drive removed it should at least show the bios screen. If it doesn't then you should start removing hardware(CD-ROM, RAM, etc) using a process of elimination. If you don't want to go though all that you could just sell it on eBay for part.

My Acer Aspire V5-571 does not load up it shows acer screen when turning on the laptop then loading floating ball comes on screen for a few seconds then black screen ? can any one please help ?


Hi Jim,

this seems like a no boot / no video kind off issue and mostly is coz of corruptions in softwares or drivers, try booting the computer in safe mode. if it does, then take a data backup. i would not recommend experimenting in this issue as it can crash the computer.
hence call 1-877-805-1027 for expert help.

If it was kept where it could get extremely cold or hot ..It would have damaged the battery or possibly the screen. Try a new battery and see what happens.

Acer aspire 1 netbook won,t boot up.


Hi
When you first turn the machine on hit F2, that will take you into the bios menu, i don't know what version your machine is using, but the information is usually on the first page, you should find it easy enough because it will be next to the CD/DVD drive.

Acer Aspire 5050 Won't Boot.


Your problem could be windows vista isnot installed properly
i assume in the beginning, your laptop come with windows xp.
if you want to go back to windows xp, you can still use alt+f10, as long as you don't delete the recover partition.
Just boot and press Alt+F10, it'll give you recover screen.
