Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop

1 Answer

It's not working!

Every time I turn it on,the Acer screen pops up,then a black screen with a blinker in the top left hand corner. Then,the power button flashes off and the screen goes completely black, then the power light turns on again and it flashes back to the Acer screen again. It never goes to the Window Vista home screen. It's like it's stuck on a loop.

It seems to be a software failure. Try using your recovery CD to sort it out. If it continuous then i would recommend a clean install if there's nothing that important on your laptop.

How do you calibrate Nuvi 40LM when the calibration is so badly off?


Turn off the Nuvi. Place your finger on the upper left-hand corner of the screen and then push down on the power button to turn the unit on. Release the power button when the Garmin logo appears. Continue to press on the upper left-hand corner of the screen until you see the calibration screen.

I have a Acer Aspire laptop 4810T. It turns on perfectly fine and everything shows up on the screen but it's so hard to see. The the screen almost appears to be black.


Press Fn key (at bottom left of keyboard) and while holding it down, press F6 key (at top center of keyboard). This should turn on the display screen backlight which had been turned of to save power.

Its very likely that the bad shutdown has just caused a windows file to become corrupted.
Boot to the windows CD and select "repair windows".
This should fix the problem.

New acer desktpo and keyboard first time turned on everything appeared to be working well, turned on second time, screen had small line flashing left hand top corner nothing else. what haave we done wrong?


HI,

Make sure there is no diskette or cd in the drives, and reboot the machine. If it continues to give you the single cursor, then you have other issue to deal with, I'd contact Acer immediately, and return the unit.

Thanks Mark

There are two places to look, first place will be the power supply module, it should put out 5, 12, and 24vdc. If you do have these voltage than look at the backlight inverter board to see if it has 24vdc feeding it. Look for bad caps with bulging tops on the power supply module also.

Black screen with blinking curser in left top corner


Hold the power button down and let it fully power off then boot it back up. If you get a prompt saying Windows did not shut down normally, select Last Known Good Configuration.

I have an acer aspire laptop and everytime i turn it on it comes up with a black screen and a flashing white underscore in the top left hand corner is there a way to fix this?


White underscores rock. They let you enter your BIOS password and stuff. Your system has achieved Zen and you're unhappy with that? You better clear up what you wish it would do for you.
