Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop

Yes, I don't know much about computers but I have the Acer Aspire 3680 laptop and I can turn it on but the screen is all black. One day it was working and I closed the laptop and when I opened it up, I couldn't see a thing. Is there a lock to the screen or is something else wrong. Please e-mail me at blmphr10@yahoo.com THANKS

Hi,

1, make sure that your laptop got power. how to do it ? it is easy, the power led (close to headphone jack) is on. and power button led should be on. Just in case you can't power on, please check ac adapter and power port on your laptop.

2. i assume you have power. now power it on and press f2 to got to bios. press f2 many times, it should make a beeps when you press it many times. once you get a beeps, press fn+right arrow to adjust the brightness of lcd. did you see something ? what i am looking is dark display.

If your display is dark, open the power cover (power cover is cover where you see power button), you need to remove 2 screws on that cover, on lcd hinges. After you remove power cover, you can see cable close to power button, remove it and check the display again, is it bright or still dark, if it is still dark it could be inverter or lcd.

if your power is on and you press f2 many times, it doesn't make beeps sound. it is called no post. Reseat memory and if this still not working, your motherboard is bad. if you have 2 memory installed, try 1 by 1. sometime the memory slot is bad, sometime memory is bad.

i hope this troubleshoot will help you to find out whats wrong with your laptop.
good luck

My laptop turned off and now its asking for a primary user hdd password witch i dont have how do i unlock it?


You have to unlock the hard drive from within BIOS if you don't want to see that screen again. However, if you don't know that password then the laptop is not going to usable by you. Normally this prevents access to a computer in case someone steals it, since the thief won't know the hdd password and can't unlock it to access any data.

MY VISTA WINDOWS WONT LOAD


Okay, I think I can help you but I need some more information. I'm assuming your Acer laptop currently has a version of Windows XP installed, yes? And Acer gave you a CD to upgrade your OS to a version of Windows Vista?

And when you mean that you go to your BIOS to access the CD, I'm assuming that you are talking about the boot options menu (selecting the cd drive vs the hard drive or floppy drive or what not) correct?

When you select the CD drive to boot from, what exactly happens? Do you get any error message? Does the computer turn off? Does it appear to try to load from the CD and then switch to your hard drive instead (and load your existing operating system)?
