Question about Acer Ferrari 4005WLMi Notebook
Hi, i am having trouble with my Ferrari 4005. After some time (random) it just freezes and then i have to turn it off and it needs a random amount of tries to switch it on again. Each time the power LED blinks and the HDD starts spinning but the notebook still is black and nothing else happens. i already read a lot of posts referring to this problem but i did not see any useful solution. so here is my approach to provide all the information i could gather. it might also solve problems http://www.fixya.com/support/t121182-not_starting http://www.fixya.com/support/t123246-acer_ferrari_power_problem http://www.fixya.com/support/t123110-computer_powers_but_nothing http://www.fixya.com/support/t118624-not_working http://www.fixya.com/support/t121019-not_turn Here is what i already checked: - Running the notebook without HDD and CDROM attached brings the same problem - Memory test did not find any errors - Temperature stays below 50 degrees (also have Akasa Laptop cooler attached) - Problem appears when running with battery - Problem appears when running with power + battery - Problem appears when running with power - battery - Problem appears when throttleing CPU to 50% Does anyone have a clue what else to check? Is this a mainboard issue? Anyone found a solution to this problem yet? Is this common? Does warranty cover it? Thanks Thorsten
Mine does the same thing. I run an external keyboard and the problem disappears. I replaced the internal keyboard and the problem is still there when I use the internal keyboard. I ran a burn-in test on the hard drive. It failed. I replaced the hard drive - no change in the problem.

When and if it's running, run 'dxdiag' to see if windows reports any sound and video conflicts. It could be the graphic card; as i think(correct me if i'm wrong) that this model has seperate dedicated graphics, other than being on board. I'm assuming all drivers are ok and none of the vga or dvi ports give you any video either. Although the graphics are independent, it's not like a desktop pc graphics agp card, they are; as far as i know integrated in the motherboard, so the board may be the but of your problem, in which case is a replacement worth it or is it within the warranty period.
