Acer aspire 3680 - new out of box won't boot

Tried to start my acer aspire 3680 for the first time, it was the very first start, nothing's even been installed yet. It started to boot up, and then went to the blue screen of death - something about shutting off the system to avoid further damage. Now it won't boot again. I've tried removing the battery and just using the ac adapter. The battery lights up, the computer lights up when power is on, and the hard drive does sound like its spinning, the cd drive will open, but nothing else happens when you push the power button.

Acer 3680 was then shutdown by itself and now nothing


Try to boot up in safe mode and see if you get a good boot and screen. If you do then the update that you just got changed the resolution on your screen to something the monitor does not support and therefore you won't see or hear squat...if you cannot boot into safe mode, then there may very well be a MOBO issue.

Unable to recover system


see if your system restore is in my computer c:\ drive
should be there it will probably say acer on the folder

restart while in restart press F7 then when options appear select boot with cd or cd/dvd
then enter this will start the system with the cd
if it does'nt start the win setup then restart might need to try a couple times
if setup still does'nt start then make sure the cd is the right recovery disk

Contact Acer and they can send you the disk that came with that computer. Then you can run some commands. Let me know when you get the disk.

Have you tried safe mode by hitting the f8 key at start up?

Acer Aspire 3690-continuously reboots then checks harddisk several times, every time I start this Laptop


First remove any new, or unnecessary hardware, extra mouse / keyboard / monitors / dongles / and even the battery.

Try again, and if possible, get into 'safe mode' by pressing F8.

If it is stable in safe mode, you at least can try removing devices under, START / CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE / DEVICE MANAGER. Then whilst disabling various devices, try booting again into normal mode, and obtain a new, AND correct driver for whatever piece of hardware was deemed to be at fault.

Screen Flickering on Acer 3680-2682


Ok we must remember when we setup any device on our PC, one of the many non PnP devices is and LCD Monitor, your PC should always be shutdown before installing a new Monitor. If you did not do this you could have damaged the I/O port on your PC. Not a definite, but possible! When you plug up a monitor or any serial cable while the PC is still on, it is of a low voltage which can casue some issues for you! Sounds like this one is yours!
