Question about Acer Aspire One A150-1049 Notebook

1 Answer

Acer A150-1049 Does not start up. Press On/Off switch > switch light goes on > drive, num, and caps lights flash momentarily, light 'whir' sound - cycling 2 to 3 seconds (drive?), nothing else - no sounds, no display. Hold down On/Off switch for six seconds or so > switch light goes off and 'whir' disappears. When I plug in the adapter, the charge light goes on, initially red, then with time, green.

If you don't see a POST/BIOS screen pop up then the issue is hardware based, the easiest way to get this resolved is to get it repaired or replaced under warranty, check your warranty here:

if it is under warranty then you can go to the follow page to initiate a service request:

If the laptop is not under warranty, take it to a computer shop (you may end up having to pay a bit of money for the repair)

I have a fujitsu e8410 which will not start up properly, when i push the start button it shows power but then the fan comes on and the cap num and shift lock leds flash and nothing else. can you help?


When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.

I have an HP ZD8000 that will not boot up. When started the fans and DVD drive start intermittently, there are two short beeps and the nums and caps keys flash once and the screen remains black, and goes...


I would recommend to disconnect all external devices and also internal cards and devices (hard drive, cd rom driver etc) just have your motherboard processor keyboard and power supply connectors and front pannel connectors press the power button and watch the keyboard, if it flashes the lights twice or once. if once turn off the power and then remove your ram modules and turn on check if you get beeps from the motherboard buzzers, if not its is evident that the motherboard or processor is definitely bad. you need to check and replace them.

some times even a bad power supply with less supply of voltage cause this if you have another power supply (SMPS) unit check with it.

Compaq 6735s notebook pc goes to HP screen, but wont boot


Hi,

First you need to determine how many blinks you are getting when you try to power on the laptop.
Check the blinking codes below and reason behind that for HP Compaq laptops

Blinking battery power LED Battery Insufficient charge on the battery
Blink: 1 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - CPU CPU not functional
Blink: 2 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - BIOS BIOS corruption failure
Blink: 3 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - Memory Module error not functional
Blink: 4 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - Graphics Graphics controller not functional
Blink: 5 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - System board General system board failure
Blink: 6 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - BIOS BIOS authentication failure

Plz get back so I can suggest you the steps to resolve the issue.

Wont post led 3 flashes


if its the red flashing light on the tower, its the hard drive activity light.

when the monitor goes on stand by, does the tower retain power? (green light on and flashing red light sometimes?) Does your keyboard's scroll lock/num lock/caps lock keys and keyboard lights work?

Acer aspire one will not work.


Hi,

If you get a post screen with Acer written on it at startup, and the screen turns off when loading the system (Windows or Linux), then you need to reinstall the system using an external USB cd unit and the recovery disk that was provided with your Acer.

If instead the display has no screen at all , try connecting an external monitor to test the laptop.

If you get picture on external monitor, then the Aspire One has a faulty LCD ribbon cable or a faulty LCD display or inverter.

If you get no picture on external screen , then you have a faulty motherboard, possibly faulty video chipset on motherboard.

In any case check your Acer One warranty, all the faults listed are covered by Acer warranty for one year.
Contact Acer at the number listed on documentation to have the computer repaired.

in both the computers unplug the power cord and any external device attached to the system.

Press the power while the power cord if unplugged for 1 min exact, plug the power cord and see if this works. As there is extra power on the mother board which needs to be drained out

Dell Lattitude C840 Laptop


The 3 LED's (Num Lock, Caps Lock, Scroll Lock) are used by Dell to diagnose no-post issues such as yours. The only error code close to yours is [Num Lock ON, Caps Lock FLASHING, Scroll Lock ON]. This indicates a a memory error. Try reseating the memory modules. If you have 2 memory modules, insert one at a time to determine the faulty module.
