Question about Acer Aspire 5610-4648 Notebook
Well I had it on last night, and went to bed. When I woke up the computer was off, but I'm used to that because sometimes it would shut down if the battery is low..but it wasnt. I press the power button, and now, it's stuck on the Acer screen, where it has that load bar at the bottom right corner. I tried pressing power again and also taking the battery out. I pressed F2 too, but it just says "Plese wait..." on the screen..>_<
Remove the hard drive and try it again, if no change also remove the DVD rom drive.
The computer is trying to access the drives, but failing and will just sit there and keep trying until it either succeeds or eventually fails & then will report it.
The fact it has hung like this would indicate the hard drive controller board has failed though and is no longer reporting back to the bios when it is queried.
If this gets you past that point, then before you take a hammer to the drive, reseat it back into the slot firmly and try it again.
