    Do you hear the hard drive spining and any noises from the speakers? If so you have a display problem... it could be set for external display so if you have a monitor or tv you can hook it to try and see if you get display that way. LMK... TKS!

Try this solution :

1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
2. Remove the Battery.
Note : Please see that there are no external devices or cables connected to the Notebook.
3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter and do NOT connect the battery now.
5. Turn on the Notebook.

Additionally, try removing and reinserting the RAM sticks by following the instructions listed in page number 119 of 266 :

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00530488.pdf

If the issue repeats, try connecting the Notebook to any Desktop Monitor and press the FN and F4 key so that the display will transfer to the desktop monitor connected.

If there is no display on the LCD of the Notebook or on the Desktop monitor connected, issue can either be with the Graphic Card of the Notebook or Motherboard itself.

I am sure these instructions are helpful.

I had the same problem with the HP Pavilion dv4000 where the lights would come on at power and the hard drive light flicker, then nothing. I went through the same procedures outlined here to no avail.

What worked for me and maybe there is a loose connection or glitch in the BIOS, but when I powered on the laptop I squeezed the lower left side of the laptop next to the touchpad from the top and bottom. Voila, I saw my Windows logo pop up. I then decided to see if messing with it would cause any reaction and it did. The progress bar on the Windows start up screen froze until I squeezed the left side again and it continued.

I am in the process of updating the BIOS and see if this resolved the issue. If not, possibly the RAM is loose or needs to be cleaned since the modules are near this area of pressure I apply.

Remove the battery and power source. Remove the RAM and hdd. Power up with the power supply and it should do something. If it does, replace the RAM and hdd it should now restart. If nothing, check the GPU.

HOW TO ENABLE BLUETOOTH IN THIS NOTEPAD ?


The Acer Aspire is a high-performance laptop that includes a fast processor, widescreen display and an internal wireless card. In addition to these premium features, certain models also include one-touch Bluetooth access. If you have an Acer, enabling the Bluetooth is very easy and will only take a few seconds.

1.Turn on your computer and wait for Windows to fully boot. Then log in as an administrator. You will not be able to use Bluetooth under a non-administrator account.

2.Press the button with the Bluetooth symbol on the left side of the computer. This will launch the Bluetooth utility. From here you can sync and manage Bluetooth peripherals.

3.Press the Bluetooth button again to disable Bluetooth. This will disable all connections, but the utility will save your settings so the same devices will sync with the computer again when Bluetooth is re-enabled.

I hope you may find it very helpful.

How do i turn my bluetooth on?acer aspire 5044wlmi


For Acep Aspire 504x model systems that have Bluetooth built in, there is an on/off switch located in the front of the system.

For systems with bluetooth built in there will be two buttons next to each other just left of the mic and headphone ports.

The left of the 2 buttons is the bluetooth switch and the right of the 2 buttons is for 802.11 wireless.

If you only have 1 button then you do not have bluetooth built-in. You can also check to see if bluetooth is included by looking at the bottom, if Bluetooth is installed there will be a white FCC lebel with the name Bluetooth written on it.
