    my acer aspire 1430 power key wont turn off even after complete shutdown, with CPU still running. if left as it is on battery mode, it'll drain its battery and would flag a 'not completely shutdown' message upon re-boot.

Dear f1at3r1c

Righteo then, you should be starting by resetting your BIOS, and you can do this by removing the outer casing o the PC tower. Once yoiu have done this you then need to find the jumper that clears the CMOS/ BIOS. Now if you are somewhat unsure of what a jumper switch is, it just consists of a smallplatic cap which covers two metal conductive pins on the motherboard. There is usually a pin which is not covered.

Now once you have found the CMOS/ BIOS jumper setting, you will need to first remove the motherboard battery. The battery is nothing more than a glorified watch battery of the CR2032 type, and it will be silver in colour and obviously round in shape (typical cell battery).

Once you have removed the battery, you will need to then clear the CMOS/ BIOS and this is done by moving that jumper switch into the clear position. The pin that is exposed will need to be covered withthe plastic jumper, and the pin on the opposite side will need to be exposed. Leave the jumper in the clear position for about 10-20 seconds or so, and then replace it back to the original position. (doing this discharges all of the electricity in the BIOS/ CMOS chip). Once you have done this, you put the battery back in place and then start the machine, then you are good to go. Start the machine and enter the BIOS as you planned to do. You might want to consider ormatting your hard disk and re-installing windows or whatever operating system you have, and this is eeasy enough, just change the boot sequence to boot from your CD/ DVD drive first, the your hard drive second. Once its loaded up, re-enter the BIOS and reset it back to HDD first.

Now f this has not worked, then you have an oooopsie (this is my saying of oh ***T, oops, something has malfunctioned. Its more than likely to be hardware driven, so take out your hard drive first and try to boot, if it lets you bios, then you found your fault. Try this with all devices until you either find the fault, or you have narrowed this to your processor/ motherboard.


Now im sure this will solve your problem, but there is one thng you should need to know about, and it is how to identify the correct jumper. This will have either any of the following markings written on the motherboard very close to the where the jumper is. You may need glasses/ magnifyer lens in order to read the lettering, but it should say one of the following things.

CLRCMOS
CLCMOS
CLRBIOS
CMOSRST
RESET
CMOSRT
BIOSRST
CMOSCLR
CLEAR
could also be under J1, JUMPER1

Now im sure that this is the fixya for you, but if this still does not work, then please get hold of me, and i will provide you with more info.

I wish you all the best, and hope you manage to solve this issue sortly

kind regards

yours sincerely

Oz

Acer laptop display goes off after some second


Try booting into safe mode. Chances are that you have set the screen resolution and refresh rate to some value that the LCD cannot handle. That is why it works until Windows takes over. Once you are in Safe Mode you can get things under control.

I have an acer aspire one zg5 it boots up to the acer logo and begins to start then all of a sudden the screen goes black and a white underscore flases in the top left corner. i called acer yesterday and...


A few things to check
  • If you have any external storage (Hard drive, flash etc) plugged in, unplug and reboot. Your computer is trying to boot from these.
  • Power down the computer and unplug and remove the battery for at least 30 seconds
  • Enter BIOS (generally F9,F10,F11,F12 or del) just mash them all while the logo screen shows and check under boot devices and see if a hard drive is listed. If no then your hard drive is bad and I would send it in if under warranty

Hi!
Sorry, I hope I was not too late. You can fix priority order issue by restoring the default value of BIOS. You can do that by doing the steps below:
1. Reboot your Acer Aspire 5315 notebook.
2. Wait about 30 seconds until you see the Acer logo on your laptop screen.
3. Press the "F2" key on the keyboard to enter the Acer Aspire 5315 laptop BIOS menu.
4. Select the BIOS option "Load Default Setting" using the arrow keys on your keyboard. Then press "Enter."
5. Press the "F10" key to save the BIOS that is reset to the factory default settings.
Hope this helps.

Acer Aspire SA85 stays on Acer logo


Hi bob,

Usually system stops at the startup screen or the startup logo, when it finds some fault in detecting the IDE drives(ie,your harddisk or cd drive), if you dint get any get stuck in the logo, you have to see what happens at the background by clicking on f1 key or f12 or TAB or some key to show the activity rather than logo.....

After seeing the error we can conclude or decide about the problem, but when you were not able to see the screen after pressing any key as specified in your manual, Or it hangs after the LOGO screen, this must be problem with your harddrive, try changing the harddish or try connecting once again by removing it...


Enjoy Rate!

Won't boot up


This sounds like a bios glitch. Use another computer and burn the bios to disc from Acer's support site. Run the bios flash, and then try the machine, this should clear it up.
