SOURCE: Acer Aspire not booting

I'm inclined to believe something is going on with the DVD drive, perhaps a I/O cable or driver issue, it just seems like what you said about the drive sounding like it's trying to read is a clue, what I would try if you have not already ,is since you said you can get to get to the Bios usually the default for boot sequence is CD/DVD drive first unless you change it, see if you can change the boot sequence from DVD drive first to HDD first and see if you can bypass it, then it might just boot, if that works then that was the cause,I see no other reason why the Drive should be trying to read other than the boot sequence. if not then it might be more complicated and could be a hardware issue somewhere,

Hoep this helps.

SOURCE: C500 Laptop won't come on power button just flashes

Have you tried attaching an external monitor when the LCD screen is disconnected from the motherboard? this connector is located under the keyboard strip – a piece of plastic just above the keyboard.
If it works, this way, then the video cable isn’t seated properly in the connector on the back of the screen. Plugging the video cable back in should fix the problem.
I don’t know how comfortable you are with taking apart laptops but I think that this information could be useful for you.

SOURCE: Cannot install ANY Windows OS on Aspire One AOA150

Take out HDD (google around - there are videos explaining that, and service repair manual for Aspire One), connect to another PC, install and open up Active@ Partition Recovery, select this HDD, go through menu - Tools-Fix MBR (Create Typical MBR), in first popup window select Yes (agreing to fix MBR), in second select No (agreing to fix MBR and delete all partitions on HDD, because Yes- you agreing to fix MBR without deleting all partitions, but be sure you back up your data, if you have any). Then with Acronis Disk Director wipe this HDD. Then repeat fixing exactly the same with Active@ Partition Recovery. Go back to Acronis Disk Director, create partition - primary and set it active. Format with NTFS (if you want to Install XP or later, and if its not SSD). Then shut down PC, take out your HDD, back to the netbook. Now you can install any Windows if you haven't other problems with your netbook. Better try installing with external DVD drive, because USB drives sometimes fail.

Hi, my acer aspire one though is on, its screen "dead"


Try attaching an external monitor to the laptop & see if you could get any display on it. If this is successful, then you might have either a faulty LCD cable or screen inverter board.
The LCD cable transfers data signal from the motherboard & video card to the LCD screen. It also supplies high voltage DC power to the screen inverter board. The screen inverter board works as a power supply for the backlight lamp mounted inside the LCD screen. It converts low voltage DC power to high voltage AC power needed for the backlight lamp.

Won't turn on. On button glows green and harddrive light flashes and goes out. On button continues to glow. If I hold the on button down 5 seconds it goes out. It was working fine, I turned it off and...


*This method only applies to Aspire ONE A150 only
1) Format USB memory stick with FAT file system.

2) Download BIOS for A150
http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles/BIOS/BIOS/BIOS_Acer_3310_A_AOA110%20&%20AOA150.zip?acerid=633850493862245097&Step1=Netbook&Step2=Aspire%20One&Step3=AOA150&OS=X01&LC=en&BC=Acer&SC=PA_7

3) Extract all files the downloaded file and place FLASHIT.EXE and BIOS file onto the memory stick

4) Rename BIOS file to ZG5IA32.FD

5) Turn netbook of, with power AND battery connected

6) Plug in memory stick with BIOS file and Flasit.exe

7) Press and hold Fn+Esc the unit will go on, hold until power LED is flashing then release keys. If it does not flash, then release and press power button once.

8) You'll notice the LED of both the usb memory stick and the power LED will flash together.

9) After a few seconds the flashing will stop and the unit will reboot or switch off completely.

My acer aspire 4315 laptop screen goes dark


ASPIRE ONE BIOS FLASH RECOVERY

First format an USB stick with FAT.

Download the latest BIOS, and put both FLASHIT.EXE and the BIOS file in the root directory of the stick. Rename the BIOS file to ZG5IA32.FD, that's important. Do not remove the USB stick.

Turn the AA1 off, make sure both battery and AC adapter are connected. Press Fn+Esc, keep it pressed and press the power button to turn the AA1 on. Release Fn+Esc after a few seconds, the power button will be blinking. Press the power button once. The AA1 will now initiate the BIOS flash, do not interrupt it under any circumstances. After a while the power button will stop blinking, and the AA1 will reboot shortly after. Wait patiently.

The BIOS has been flashed and all settings reset to default.

If for some reason you made a mistake during the procedure and it doesn't reboot by itself wait 5 minutes before turning it off, just to be safe that it isn't still flashing the BIOS.

Download WIN98BOOT.ZIP and HPUSBFORMATTER from the internet normal bootable like a diskette won't work with a usb stick
I had mine 2 months it's a common problem with the notebook.
The onely thing that you have to do is download these programs with someone with a internet connection.

Good luck
