Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

2 Answers

Earlier today I was using my Acer Aspire with no problems. Now when I try to boot it up, the green power light comes on, the fan starts whirring but thats it. The screen stays black and it can sit there for awhile in this state. I did not drop the computer or mishandle it. Any ideas?

Thank you for choosing FixYa!

This can still be fixed by doing power drain.
>Take the battery out of the computer
>Unplug the ac adapter from the computer.
>Press and hold the power button for about 15secs.
>Let go of the power button.
>Put the battery and plug the ac adapter back into the computer.
>Turn the computer back on.

You should get the display to come up. For a more detailed instruction, please visit http://www.fixya.com/support/r6013536-computer_turns_but_no_display

My acer one netbook won't boot


This is a common problem with the Acer Aspire one. Apparently, the BIOS needs to be flashed using a flash disk with the required files.

Unfortunately, the files are not available at any website but you can take the Aspire one to any Acer service center and they should be able to flash the BIOS for you free of cost.

If you can't get past the bios boot then likely its a problem with the bios settings or a hardware issue on the motherboard. Make sure the processor fan is running when it turns on.

Acer aspire 5050 can't turn it on


If you dont see any green lights and you dont hear any boot up sounds ( hd, fans, etc) try to take out battery and just plug in the AC adapter to a known good power outlet. Make sure your power plug is good too. If you hear boot-up sounds, see green lights but no display then toggle on the "fn" key and or try on an external monitor.
