Hi

it may be worth trying this

turn off laptop
turn on laptop also pressing the F8 key at the top holding it down until hopefully it takes you
into the repair option box

then try the last known good configuration
window should then restart laptop and try to take it back to when it worked ok

if not try a few of the other options

and if you cannot use the restore option in the repair options then you may now be forced
to use the recovery method but that is a bit drastic if you have any files or photo,s stored on the hard drive

If you are desperate to save any photo's or files on your hard drive you would need another computer and a usb to sata/ ide cable so that you could remove your hard drive from your laptop
connect it to the sata/ide cable and connect the usb end to the other computer and hopefully read the hard drive from the other computer and transfer the files or photos

so if you can not start your laptop and are not concerned about loosing what is on the hard drive
you could try the acer recovery management and for this please follow these steps

turn off laptop
press power up key also press the F10 key a few times until you get the acer recovery option
if you have not set up a password your self and if it asks for a password the default password is
i believe 000000 ( 6 zero's )

then follow the instructions on the screen

good luck

If you place your Win7 disk in the DVD drive boot the laptop from the disk and choose to install a new system.
Follow the menu and prompts.
When it has installed download the drivers from Acer.com otherwise you will get problems.
Hope that helps.

Acer aspire 5310 the screen just blank and not


Possibly the monitor is defective - usually most laptops have a blue plug at the back for an external monitor, if plugging in a normal monitor brings up a screen, then likely the laptop monitor is defective. If you get a splash screen and bios info on trying to start it,it indicates your windows is defective or has lost it's start-up files - a windows reinstall will fix that.
