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.

take out the battery, then take out the memory. Put one of the two memory modules back in, and turn it on. If everything looks ok, shut down and put the other one back and try again...if everything is ok...then ok. If it doesn't work after the first one, let me know...

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.

Computer won't start


When the screen is black, try pressing Ctrl + Alt + Del; a soft reset should kick it back into gear. Did the laptop shut down unexpectedly due to power loss/overheating/etc..?

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.
