Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

1 Answer

When I try to start io my netbook, it sounds as if the disk is going, like it does when it starts up normally, but the green processing light doesn light up and it starts to sounds as if the disk is 'idling', for lack of a better word. It intermittently tries to get going again, but goes back to idling right away. Any thoughts, this thing was just working 12 hours ago, and has only been in sleep mode between then and when I tried to wake it back up.

My netbook keeps returning to start win normally


try to go to the BIOS setting by pressing F2 or del while in POST (exactly after you press the power button and the screen is on)
try to set the BIOS to it's default setting,save & exit,restart your computer
if it still doesn't work,go to BIOS again and look for something called "boot device priority". it usually placed in advanced settings
then set your hardisk as your 1st boot device. save&exit,restart

The indications are of a NO POST. This can be caused by:
  1. Failed motherboard
  2. Failed Front IO Panel
  3. Damaged IO Panel Cable
If issues connecting USB connections occurred via the front connection, I'd suspect the IO panel as the issue. If the IO panel doesn't resolve, then motherboard is likely failure point.

Dell wont start up


On the back of the chassis, there are 4 LEDs above the PS2 connections marked ABCD what do they indicate? During the boot process the lights normally flash on and off green, when the boot process is complete, they should all be green GGGG.

If any are Amber then they are indicating a power on self test (POST) failure. AAGG is bad memory for example.
