Acer Aspire 5920 will not start up

When its turned on the Acer screen is visible for 1 second. The screen goes blank with a flashing/winking cursor in the top left corner. I tried alt/F10 and even though the option to restore factory settings appears, "please wait a moment" will stay on for hours and no end result. It is 8 months old and was brand new when purchased. Unfortunately i dont have he receipt or contact details of the company where it was purchased.

Last week my laptop froze when i was playing resturant city on facebook. the screen almost whited out. i tried to do ctrl alt del to try and close the web browser but that didn't work either. so i powered off to reset the computer. after i restarted the laptop it still tells me that if any hardware or software changes were made then that might be the cause. and to use the windows recovery to fix it. the first time when i tried to use the acer recovery disk to reinstall it did fine up to when it got to a blue blank windows screen and a system32/cmd came up and stayed there for 30 mins. i tried to reinstall b/c nothing was happening. and now i don't know what else to do b/c i've been making attempts a few times still using the recovery disks to try again..and all i get is a blank black screen with the mouse cursor sitting there.i can move it around..but nothing else shows up. and i'm unsure of what else to do. i got my laptop at walmart. they don't have a pc tech area and can't do anything about my laptop cept sell me a new one. and i'm getting aggrevated trying and trying.. :( can someone help me please...the last thing i wanna do is trash this laptop. u can email me at Ld_steph2@hotmail.com

Hi, when I turn on the Acer Aspire 5920, the acer screen comes on, the bar across the bottom moves, then it goes to a blank dark screen with a blinking cursor. I have tried turning off and turning on and...


Check if your hard rive indicator light is flashing (has disc shape icon or can shape icon next to it). If it is then put in your windows disc and do a startup repair. Make sure it is booting from the disc drive first. if it isnt flashing then you may have a dead hard drive. Try taking the hard drive out and putting it back in.

im afraid that your screen is broken, but try to move the screen foward and backward littlebit, my friend also have the same problems and only by contact local support using his warranty the problems fix, you may open your laptop to see if something wrong with the wire but i think its not practically good.

Acer aspire 5920-6864 wont boot up


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, try:
  • "Press F2 to Enter System Configuration Utility";
  • determine if the hard disk could be detected by the CMOS/BIOS;
  • if yes, possibly corrupt partition would need re-partition/re-format and re-installation of Vista;
  • if no, possible faulty hard drive and would require replacement.
Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
