I have an acer aspire laptop and when I turn it on nothing comes up on the screen and the noise from the hard drive stops after a few seconds. I think the inverter may be broken and if it is how can I fix it?

A try to open my laptop but nothing ,stop to acer screen and after nothing more black i dont no waht a can do


First try a hard reset...remove battery, unplug power and hold power button for a FULL 60 seconds...NOT 59!!!! 60 or more. Now plug in and try to power on? Did it work? If so, just a hangup..it happens. Didn't work? Remove you rem and try to insert them one at a time..maybe bad ram or not properly seated. Still don't work? Try hitting ESC or f12 and select boot from hard disk...Or hit f2 repeatedly and go into SETUP and then select Load Defaults

Get in to bios acer aspire AST180-ED400A


First shut your computer off. Wait a few seconds (to allow the hard drive to stop spinning) and start the computer again.
Start repeatedly pressing F2 while the Acer logo is displaying. Press it once, wait a second, press, it again, wait another second, and repeat this while the Acer logo is displaying until you see the bios setup screen.

Acer aspire z5700 wont come on


1 long, 1 short beep : System board problem

The beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the RAM , all the memory in the RAM is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off.


WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.

Make sure that your RAM modules and Cmos battery are securely seated

on some motherboards Cmos batteries are soldered in.

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.

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

Turns on but no boot


I had this happen sometimes after a windows update/reboot.
If the computer is on, hold down the power button until it cuts off.
Unplug the power cord. Wait for a couple of minutes.
Plug the cord back in, and turn on system.

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.
