Question about Acer Aspire 5670 Notebook

1 Answer

My Acer 5670's power light turns on and stays on, but the computer never boots up. The screen stays completely blank. The hard drive light turns on for a moment and then shuts off. While it's in this never-booting hold I'm able to use the usb ports for other things like the usb laptop fan and if I click the eject button for the cdrom drive it whirs. I tried removing the battery and just using direct power but nothing has changed. I turned off and unplugged the computer and held down the start button for 1 full minute, and still no change. I got this computer from my Dad second hand. Is there anything I can do? I've had this problem before and it just went away after a while of tinkering, but I can't say I did anything to make it go away and now it looks. Please help.

Perhaps you might need to reset or enable the correct boot sequence in the Bios settings of the pc.
On some pc's you press F2 whilst booting to get to the boot sequence pages,,,,navigate then using the "tab" of arrow keys ,
Familiarise yourself with these setting and pages you wiill have a chance to save and exit.
Press enter to change a value or reset completely to default setting if you wish
Goto "boot sequence and learn how to get the pc to boot from different devices

Acer Aspire One NAV50 screen blank


If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3598095-faulty_laptop_lcd_screen

My acer aspire 5551 wont boot up i have a power light and the screec flicks when i turn it on but the screen stays blank


Sounds like a motherboard or maybe a hard drive problem.
It could also be a power issue. Check this first: Is the power adapter plugged into the wall? Is the computer end of the adapter putting out the correct voltage (~18v)?
Try booting without the battery.
Since this is a laptop, you really don't have the option of disconnecting your hardware. So I would try to boot it up and press the F2 key (or whichever key it is in an Acer) to get into setup.
Next try to boot it with a system disk (CD or DVD).
If all these fail, you are looking at a motherboard problem, in my opinion. You could remove the hard drive and try to start it just to be sure that the hard drive isn't causing the problem.

Hi. My acer aspire 5735 doesnt turn on. I turned the laptop off as normal however when i came to go back on it just wouldnt turn on. The charge light stays on to show whether the battery is being charged....


When a computer does not boot up, but the battery is charging, it could be a CPU or RAM problem.
Re-seat the RAM modules, this will make sure it makes proper connection to the motherboard.
Next try removing the battery and power up the laptop with just the power adapter connected. If it boots up then insert the battery while it is powered up.

I have an Acer 5670 Laptop, I replaced the HDD with a new SATA drive and when I powered up the laptop, the Video card fan starts, the CD drive cycles once, the drive light flashes 3 times, then it stops....


Sounds like it. Try taking out the hard drive, disconnect all usb devices and anything attached, and try to run POST again...Being a laptop, there is not a whole lot else you can do if it won't POST. YOu can try swapping in some different RAM that is known to be good also.

Same thing


The white screen could indicate a bad inverter or the screen itself.The screen staying black could mean the video card has gone out.

Acer Aspire 5010.. Power on, but Blank screen/ hard drive light also not.


Hi,
This could be a Power/Switch Problem.
Faulty Hard-Drive.
Solution:- Leave the laptop turned Of And charge the battery to Full Capacity. ( usually between 4-16 Hours ) depending on capacity.
This will also fully charge the CMOS ( memory battery )
then boot the laptop up, and see if this solves your problem.
If not i,d suggest running a scandisk or hard-drive diagnostic program, to ensure that you have no Viruses-bad sectors on the hard-drive.
If you need further assistance please don,t hesitate to ask for more help and advice.

Black screen not booting


check both your power and video connections to the monitor, sounds more like a monitor power issue.
if the connections appear ok, but screen still blank, try connecting a known good working monitor from somewhere else and see if it works with your pc, if it does, your original monitor is faulty, if it doesn't, you have a pc video issue.
