That is probably because some important boot files are missing. What you can try is to take out the hard drive and move it to another acer aspire 5315 computer. To take out the hard drive, remove ALL electrical components (power cable, battery, etc.), open the computer's hard drive bay, and take it out VERY carefully. Make sure you do not cut the cables. That could damage the hard drive. Then, you remove the hard drive on the other acer aspire 5315 computer using the same instructions above. Then, you can identify the missing boot files (they will be in a hidden drive called System Reserved), copy them onto your computer's hidden System Reserved drive (if it's missing you'll have to create one manually), and put it back in the other acer aspire 5315 computer. Make sure that you put the wires where they were when you removed them, otherwise the hard drive might not work. Then, try turning on the computer again.

Hello reeceman1,
The Acer Launch Manager needs to be running for the 'e' key to work. To run the Acer Launch manager, do these 3 steps:
* Click the windows start button (bottom left-hand corner) * Click All Programs * Click 'Launch Manager'
When the Launch manager window displays on the screen, click OK. Now Press the 'e' button and it will launch the Acer Empowering Technology

Hi, I cannot boot my acer aspire 5315 laptop, No boot filename received. PXE-M)F: Eciting broadcom PXE Romm. No bootable device. Insert boot disk and Press any key. Please can you help. Mant thanks


It looks like your hard disk went invisible, and BIOS is trying all alternative boot options before it says that there's no boot device available.
I'm afraid that the most probable diagnosis is that the hard disk is broken; anyway you'll need hands-on service to establish what's wrong and what can be done.

I have a acer aspire 5315 and the green e button at the top right corner doesn't seem to do anything is it meant to ?


Hello sean_FULL,

The green e button at the top right corner is called the Empowering Key. It is used to launch the Acer Empowering technology on the Acer Aspire 5315 computer.

Here's a good link to the Acer support web site that has more information about the Acer Empowering Technology: http://support.acer-euro.com/empowering_technology/

My ACER ASPIRE ONE WAS CONNECTING TO THE WIRELESS NETWORK OK FOR THREE DAYS NOW WILL NOT CONNECT my acer does not recognise my wireless devise. It use to work so so hit or miss. But now nothing. Anyone...


There is a little button in the front right hand corner of the laptop that if you hold it for a second or two it will enable or disable ability to access the wireless router. Very easy to turn of and on, on an accident the button is located right where your right wrist would sit! There is nothing on the computer or in the guide that refers to this button!

Hope this can help someone!
