I use Acer aspire 4315 laptop. The power button isn't working. When I press the power button nothing happen. So how can I turn on my laptop?


maybe you have already done this, but remember that many laptops require that you remove the battery for about 30sec. as well as disconnect the AC power to reset them. Always try to do this when everything seems completely dead.
Please let me know if it's working or not,and thanks for using fixya

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.

Have acer aspire 4315 screen come in and out and goes black


This could be either some sort of software issue or perhaps a hardware issue. It sounds like the monitor connector could be loose. If you know someone who would be able to check the internal connection (safely, without damaging the computer) that would be a great place to start. Anytime you open a computer you must be very careful and do so at your own risk. Ensure that the power is disconnected and the battery is removed, most parts are static sensitive. So, it would be best done by someone who knows what they are doing.

Hi I could use some advice, I have an Acer Aspire 6935g which died while i was out of the house for about 10 mins, came back and it had turned itself off with no signs of power at all, not even the usual...


Hello Kelpi,

Hmmmm. So with the video card installed, no life, no joy. With the video card out, signs of power, but no joy. Since this just sort of 'happened' out of the blue, it sounds more like the card than the mobo. First, inspect the video card for signs of scorching (look at the chips on it) and any 'brown' areas on the card which may have happened as a result of excesive heat. Also, try cleaning the contacts on the card (and the mobo socket) with a pink pencil eraser to remove oxidation - dont rub so hard as to remove the gold plating on the contacts if present.

If there is a vga port on the laptop which is not attached to the video card, try booting it up with an external monitor connected. I haven't seen one of those laptops for a couple of years, but some research showed that some of them have an onboard intel gpu and pci express support for the discreet video card. You may be able to get video with an external monitor, go to the bios, and change the primary graphics to onboard.

Here's another option: Take it to an authorized Acer repair shop. They can order a video card from Acer and if it doesn't fix the issue, they can return the part to Acer within 15 days (that's the return policy in Canada) You may have to pay shipping and a restocking fee, but this is still an option. Also, Acer is very reasonable with their repair rates. You may be able to send it to them directly and have it repaired for a flat rate. Acer is also very reasonable with their parts pricing, so if the video card option doesn't fix it, you can likely get a new mainboard for $100-150.

Hope this helps! Let me know how you make out.

Regards,

Joe

My acer will not come on at all. i have it plugged in but only a green light is on for the battery sometimes both lights are on but the monitor is blank.


Remove the battery, then unplug the power.
With the power cord disconnected and the battery removed ( both disconnected for at least 5 minutes ),,, hold down the power button for 15 - 20 seconds.
Reconnect the battery first, then plug in the electrical power
Try the power button ( this may take you into bios setup, on some models ).
This is a standard reset for most Acer laptops.

Acer aspire is not connecting to external monitor after system rc


If the external monitor was displaying during the system recovery, there may be a conflict with your damaged lcd screen so I would remove the cover and disconnect the cord to the lcd. Restart the computer and hope it works. -James

There are 3 screw behind the laptop, on the back of the screen hinges. Remove them then open the laptop, and with your finger nails, lift the power cover closest to the screen, it will then raise and you will be able to remove the keyboard.

White screen


This could be caused for a number of reasons. First thing to determine is if the computer is bad or just the screen. Hook up a external monitor to the laptop and turn it on and use the FN key to turn on the external monitor port. If the computer is running fine with the external monitor then you have a bad LCD or LCD inverter. which is replacable but expensive.. you would want to look at getting a new laptop or using it with the external monitor.
