    I have almost the same problem with my Acer Aspire 3640 PC notebook. When I try to start the system, at first few seconds, my mouse and keyboard are working but after a grinding sound coming from my laptops fan, it stacks up. Sometimes, it will already hang at startup screen or sometimes at the acer logo screen. Any help will be much appreciated.


    Regards,

It sounds viruss related to me too.
Age and time seems to have a toll on any mobile systems.
Format it and start again,
You can repair the install if you have a XP install disk.
If you have no disk ,another option is to remove the drive and format it on a second machine,
Next set is to fit back into your machine and make sure to do your Windows SP2 updates so all the devices work correctly.
I have found SP3 was not a happy camper so I opted not to install this update as other machines I have come into contact with have had bad issues,SP3 was supposed to be a Bug Fix Patch but why fix something when it works,Funny that aye.

Hope this helps ,Please let me know of the outcome thanks

Try to boot into "Safe Mode" and run a full virus scan with your (hopefully updated) AV program and see if that fixes it. Press the F8 key on boot to get to the options screen that will allow you to choose "Safe Mode" then your Operating System and click enter then yes on the pop up then if you do make it to your desktop in safe mode you'll know it.

Any windows OS running for a year without any maintenance would probably hang on you even without a virus. IMHO
So you may end up having to format the HD and reinstall your OS (possibly from a partition if you didn't get a disk).
Good luck.

    If your keyboard doesn't function when booting, that is a whole other problem, connect an external keyboard via USP. PS2, or whatever is available.
    Otherwise use a bootable XP disk to format your hard drive and do a full/clean install of XP. You may have to change your boot order in your BIOS settings and set CD ROM to first or at least to before the HD. You could also try a repair install as Misterdj suggests.

Warranty for acer aspire 5920


You need to call Acer regarding this legal things and issues.

However, this is what's actually happening.

When your dealer bought Acer laptops (or any other laptop) Acer gave them (your dealer) 3 years warranty coverage. But your dealer will sell them and cover 1 year of warranty since the laptops they bought are just stored in their locations which are already consuming the warranty period that Acer gave them.

I need to replace the keyboard on an Acer Aspire 3680 series laptop


Hi there.
Remove the laptop battery and the AC power supply, open the lid as far back as you can take it.
Get a small flat headed screwdriver, now, you have to take off the keyboard bezel, this is the strip of plastic above the keyboard with the power button on it, the best way to remove it is to start by the on/off button by gently prying the bezel up from the lid hinge, once you have one side out gently pull it up using your fingers, it will unclip and lift away.
Next you have to remove 2 screws from the top of the keyboard, these should be visible to you, once the screws are out carefully lift the keyboard up, you will see a ribbon cable that is connected to the motherboard, gently pull the tab up on the connector that the ribbon cable sits in and it should release it and you can now remove the keyboard and replace it.
To re-assemble just follow my direction in reverse.
Please post back with the results and for any additional advice if needed.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Acer aspire 3000


remove your battery pack, then try again, the reason for this problem because your battery is already trash, i know this because we have the same problem. and one thing more to expect from our low end aspire 3000, it will shutdown itself when it's hot.

xave here, hope i explained clearly. I HATE ACER ASPIRE 3000 it sucks
