Question about Acer Aspire 3690-2196 Notebook

1 Answer

My Acer Aspire 3000 has a blank screen

I turn on my computer, the screen that says Acer comes on and it gives me the option to press F2 and go to the setup. If I don't go to the setup it continues to show a black screen with an _ at the top corner for a second then it goes away and the screen stays black and does nothing. The only thing I can do is go to the setup and I can't find anything to make it come on normally on the setup. I have the same problem.. I went to reboot mine and the Acer Splash screen will pop up with the F2 Option and I can't do anything from there.. If I don't hit F2 it will go onto a black page.. ? I need my computer to atleast get to the start menu so that I can make recovery disks or something? Anyone know anything about it?

    My Acer computer screen also comes up blank. When I power on, the screen remains blank. I swapped the Hard Drive & Memory and both are good in a another computer but I'm getting nothing to show up on my screen. Batter is also good. The fan kicks on during start but seems like there is not enough kick to start the windows vista or any other program. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks,

I suggest you check the settings of your bios. Normally this happens if your Hard drive is unreadable. Change the settings of the boot function to first boot on Hard disk and try to disable all other bootable hardwares like CD or network card.


Hope this helps.

Try upluging it, remove the battery, then press and hold the power button for 10 full slow seconds. Then wait 1 minute, put battery back in, plug back in and turn on.
It should now come on and work fine.

How do I restore my acer aspire 3000 laptop to factory settings, I dont have a disc?


Most acer laptops have a special recovery feature..

While starting up your computer, when you see the first acer screen, start pressing alt and f10 at the same time, over and over..

You may have to attempt this a few times to get it to work.. If you see the windows screen, it has not worked, restart the computer again, and keep trying.

If you get it to work, it will give yo an option to restore factory settings. which will reinstall windows and make the computer like new.

Keep in mind this will erase all your personal files and pictures so you may want to save them first.

My Acer Aspire 3000 has a blank screen


When you get in setup check the time and date and see if correct, if not; correct it and save settings and exit, then it should reboot. If the time is correct and date then you will have to reboot the system and keep pressing F8 while its booting, this will take you into safe mode, you need then to choose last known good cofiguration and hit enter, hopefully you should now get into windows.
