Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook

1 Answer

I have aan Acer Aspire 5315 which is 2 and a half years old. The battery died so I plugged in the cable in the usual way and nothing happened no lights came on. I assumed the powercable needed replacing (have already changed this twice!) So I bought a new cable, when h=this arrived I plugged it in and still nothing happened. The cable seems to be loose in the socket which attaches it to the laptop, so I am wondering if the problem lies in the socket/port itself. I also wondered if the battery needs replacing. I would appreciate your thoughts.

The power ports are generally the problem. If you wiggle the wire and get contact that is almost sure that is it. The Internet has folks that will fix this problem.

Mr acer aspire 5315 laptop doesn't power on? My old power cable is damage and I bought new acer 5315 power cable.


There could be possible damage to the part where you plug the charger into the laptop. Look and make sure that the pin in the charger port is not missing/damaged/bent. If it looks fine and your new charger still does not work, there might be some other hardware problem in the laptop.

Hi my acer aspire 5315 will not boot up, i turn it on i get nothing but the little cursor in the top right hand corner...can anyone help please thank u in advance


That is probably because some important boot files are missing. What you can try is to take out the hard drive and move it to another acer aspire 5315 computer. To take out the hard drive, remove ALL electrical components (power cable, battery, etc.), open the computer's hard drive bay, and take it out VERY carefully. Make sure you do not cut the cables. That could damage the hard drive. Then, you remove the hard drive on the other acer aspire 5315 computer using the same instructions above. Then, you can identify the missing boot files (they will be in a hidden drive called System Reserved), copy them onto your computer's hidden System Reserved drive (if it's missing you'll have to create one manually), and put it back in the other acer aspire 5315 computer. Make sure that you put the wires where they were when you removed them, otherwise the hard drive might not work. Then, try turning on the computer again.

Low Battery life on Acer Aspire


I would first make sure that the AC is working. If the computer works on AC then it should be fine. I have had several batteries that lasted only a year. If you leave it plugged in all the time, that will do it. It is best to charge it and then use it on battery several times a week. Hope this helps some :>)

Acer won't boot up


Hi,
when any computer posts/boots up.
it goes through a sequence of initialising things before booting.
i,ve been repairing computers for around 12-15 years.
1st i,d try removing the ram ( memory ) usually underneath the laptop, behind a screw cover. Or ocassionally under the keyboard.
if 2 sticks of ram are installed, remove the battery. and 1 stick of Ram. put battery on and try to boot. if no joy with that try the other stick of ram. and replace battery-Re-boot.
If this works you have 1 stick of faulty ram or faulty ram slot on motherboard. Failing this. I suspect that the CPU has overheated, and therefore a replacement Processor should solve the problem.

Thankyou for using fixya.

Mike @ compurepair.

You have to select which display option you want. Press the fn key(bottom left) and F5 key together. You may have to hold for a few seconds.
