My Acer Aspire 5920 does not start up after pressing the power button, nothing on the screen at all. However the lights are flashing. Before this problem, the screen froze when I was using it. What's the...


Possibly a RAM issue or errors on the hard drive stopping the display driver from working properly. Remove power sources, remove RAM and hard drive. See if you get a display when the power adapter is reconnected. If you do, remove power source and fit RAM, (if not motherboard may be faulty). Repeat and if still working, remove power, fit Hard Drive and boot again.
Assuming your OS is Windows Based;
Reboot and use safe mode run CHKDSK/F and when finished check the drivers.

Acer Aspire 5100 will not boot


Two possible Solutions:

1) The Hard Drive has come unseated - Disconnect the Power and REMOVE all connections, Close the Screen & Turn your Laptop Upside Down and Remove the Battery, Locate the Hard Drive Access Panel and Remove the Screws from the Panel, Remove the Panel, Remove the Hard Drive. Carefully Replace the Hard Drive, Replace the Panel and Reconnect the Battery & Power Supply. See if the Computer will Start

2) The Operating System is Damaged OR the Hard Drive is Dead - You will need to slave Your Hard Dive into a Second Computer and Backup ALL you Personal Data OR RISK loosing it. If the Second Computer can NOT read the Drive, the Hard Drive is Dead (A Computer Repair Company may be Able to Help)

Once your Data is Safe, you can try to Repair the OS by Booting your Computer with the Drive in it. Begin pressing F12 or F10 at bootup (Once a Second). You will be presented with an Options Page for:

System Restore (FIX WINDOWS)
System Recovery (Wipes your Computer and Retores the Factory Software)

Hope this Helps!

To stop acer logo before starting windows xp


Well, Firstly this might be a extreme case but is to reformat your hard drive removing any manufactures partition, and reinstalling the Operating System, but what i would do first is the go to start---run---(type this command and hit enter)"msconfig" the system configuration window should pop up. Go to the boot tab and place check mark in the box which says "No GUI boot" you mat also change the timeout seconds there too. hit apply then OK and reboot your system.

hope this works for you. let met know.

Acer Aspire T180


check your removable media disk drives and make sure that you don't have like a jump drive or CD-Rom that the computer doesn't like. If that doesn't work, enter the BIOS setup (usually F2, F12, ESC or something like that....check the bottom of the screen.) and find the Boot Order settings & move hard drive to #1
