Question about Acer Aspire 5610 Notebook

1 Answer

Sreen is black

I was watching a video and my laptop just shut down.  I turned it back on, but all I heard was the fan go on and stop.  The power green light is steady and so is the one for the dvd.  I tried to open the dvd tray, but it wouldnt open.  I've tried turning it off/on and still nothing.  Can I still fix this or should I just get a new one?  Thanks

Hi gina

On every DVD Rom there is a emergency open button, its a small hole just under the open close button. Turn on ur laptop and Put a toothpick into that hole, hopefully the tray will open.

Laptop wont turn on


When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

Acer Aspire 5520 does not start up, power light blinking green


I think it might be the motherboard, if its not regulating the voltage properly then to much will go thru the motherboard and the fan won't be able to cool things down properly. Eventually then the motherboard will fail and then no video like your having now.

Try these steps anyway just to be sure:

only hook up the AC Adapter keep the battery disconnected. See if it turns on, if you still get a blinking green light then go ahead and turn the laptop off.

At this point, unseat and reseat the memory one stick at a time in each slot one at a time. Try turning on the laptop after each stick reinsertion.

If that doesn't do it then disconnect the hard drive and the dvd drive from the laptop.

Then try turning on the laptop, if you still can't get video then the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.

At this point at least you would know for sure.

TV acts like it is turning on then shuts off then repeat, repeat


When my lamp died the bulb literally exploded. That may be what you heard. Have you check the lamp? If the lamp is ok, the lamp's ballast or power supply might have blown.

I have a 56" Toshiba DLP TV, yesterday evening while watching the CNN news we have heard a cracking sound and the video disappeared, the screen went black. The audio was OK, but the two pilot lights...


Hi when was the bulb last changed as when the bulb goes it will do this. at the back of the tv is a panel, it will have vents an a sign saying something like bulb on it the bulb is in there and there is a screw holding this cover on and inside is a clip that holds the bulb in place, remove bulb and check it for its colour if its black then its blown and you just need a new one. if its damaged in any way replace it and do not touch the glass.

Shutdown


Hmm, could be an overheating problem.

Do you have any temperature monitoring software on your laptop you could use to check the cpu temperature while watching streaming video?

If not try downloading and installing this.

Lenovo laptop shutdown suddenly after working for a while


Hi James, replace the fan or If it's still under warranty have it serviced. Suggest you stop turning it on until the fan is replaced. It could be the fan cooling the CPU. You don't want it to fry.
The shut down process is normal when over heating is detected by the system.
