Question about Acer Aspire 5100-5033 Notebook

1 Answer

Acer Aspire 5100 will not start right

When i start the laptop, the monitor shows the acer logo and the blue startup bar, then the screen has a flashing underscore in the top left corner and after a few seconds, goes blank, as in the blank selection for a screensaver. I tried restarting and hoding down f8, but i just get a loud beeping noise. I tried another key and it made the same noise. I restarted and pressed f2 at the logo screen and everything there works fine, i have all the options for setting the startup password, turning off the startup logo, ect. but it still goes to the blank screen no matter what i do. Please help, I am very worried, i ran regular full scans using spyware doctor before this so i dont think it is a virus, again, please help.

It seems your hard drive has corupted.
This sucks, all you have to do is push ALT F10 and then go through the reseting menu, you will loose everything on there though except the original data.

My Acer Aspire 5100 laptop won't boot. At startup the Acer logo is shown and than drops to a black window with flickering cursor (with now and than a loud bleep). Can anybody tell me what the problem is...


be sure to remove all other external devices hooked to your pc. just leave ac adapter plugged in. then try if it will boot to safemode by pressing F8 upon seeing the Acer Logo. if it will boot, what you need is reinstall your OS. if it will still not boot then you need to replace hdd.

My 5100 won't go pass windows loading logo


Try to boot in safemode press f8 key on startup
When the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, use the ARROW keys to selectLast Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked), and then press ENTER.

if this does not work you can try MSCONFIG (if boots)to try diagnose your problem
if worse comes to you can do factory reset at acer bios screen hold the ALT key and press F10 to start acer recovery
hope helps a little let me know if i can help further

Acer Aspire 5100 laptop's screen remains black at start-up


This is probably a hardware issue with the monitor. Just to make sure, uninstall, and reinstall the monitor's driver. If that doesn't fix it, it's a hardware issue.

You will have to either take it to a shop, or contact the manufacturer (your computer should be under warranty if you've had it for less than a year).

Try reseating the RAM modules. If that doesn't work test the RAM in another laptop. If nothing works chances are you have a faulty motherboard.

Reboot the computer and during startup start pressing the F8 key until the boot menu appears. Then select "Last Known Good Configuration". The PC will reboot on it's own and hopefully be fixed. Hope this works for ya.
