When I turn on my acer laptop, nothing comes up on the screen. And after a few seconds there's no noise coming frm the hard drive. I was wondering if the inverter was broken and if it is how can I solve the problem.

    Hi bigbird - do you have another monitor that you can plug into the laptop? If you do, plug it in to your laptop and let me know what you see when you boot up. Thanks.

Click noise on my desktop


It is likely a wire hitting the cooling fan. If you open the case and look withing it will be fairly obvious. Otherwise, sometimes clicking noises can come from the CD tray, or the hard drive. If the hard drive is grinding, (and that would be more of a grinding noise) you would be wise to back data up, as that can mean your hard drive is on its way out.

ACER Aspire L100 Desktop is dead?


If the hard drive is OK then you can remove the hard drive from the desktop case, and insert the hard drive into a USB 3 1/2" hard drive adapter case, this should come with a power adapter. These are available at your friendly computer shop.
Boot up the laptop then plug this USB hard drive adapter into the laptop's USB port. The laptop will see this as an external USB hard drive. You can open the various folders and files on this external drive and copy the folders and files to the laptop.
You can delete the Windows folder and Program Folders on this external drive to free up disk space and use this as a back up drive etc.
If you are not sure how to remove the hard drive and install it into an USB hard disk case, then I suggest you get a computer savy friend to help you.

My computer turns on but my monitor screen stays blank my key board lights dont come onim wondering if this is my harddrive because it doesnt make any noise when i turn it on


Hi,
Its highly unlikely that its the hard drive as a computer will still show a post or splash screen without a hard drive being installed.
Is the computer making any beeping sounds?

Computer won't start up and has a constant tone.


If the noise is constant then it means the problem is either:

1: a Power supply issue
2: a motherboard issue
3: a keyboard problem

the latter of the three being the easiest to fix, try booting with your keyboard unplugged or even better if you have another keyboard try using it to see if that corrects the problem.

If the above does not work then you have a problem with 1 or 2, and in order to find out for certain you will need to test it, you can goto your local computer diagnostic store to see if they can check which it is.

and hope its not a problem with the motherboard.

Hope this helps, and Good Luck

Computer will not load up - frozen on acer start screen?


Are you sure the monitor is plugged into the correct port? Also, check the monitor cable for bent pins. A small move shouldn't make this kind of difference. Eliminate that power strip and just plug the computer and monitor into an outlet.

Won't boot..


dear,
u unplugged everything and it booted up finely.
its mean that there is something wrong with the drviers.
check it one by one. just plug hard driver first and let is boot. if its still behaving the same as after plugging all then the problem is caused by the hard drive.

regards,

I have a puzzle for you ,I will describe the fault, and you leave me any information you can gather. The hard drive on Acer (xp) is 40gb, split into c&d drives The disc would not defrag as only 15%...


There is nothing that changing the partition or volume information on the Hard drive would do to cause this issue. My first suggestion would be to unplug the Hard Drive and then try turning the PC on. If you get the Acer logo up then the Hard drive has failed. Otherwise there is something wrong with the Motherboard or RAM.

I would suggest taking it in for Warranty service if it is still under warrnaty, otherwise try what I have suggested. Good luck.
