My acer aspire m5100 desktop will wont do a start up beep and nothing on the screen

If you have no internal hard drive installed you won't get it to work correctly as the hard drive is where the data is stored for the operating system.

Prendo la pc acer y se apaga vuelve a prender y se apaga y asi sigue

Estimado Carlos, Cuando la PC se apaga poco tiempo despues de terla prendido puede ser una senal de sobrecalentamiento del procesador. Si es una PC desktop, puedes verificar si el disipador de calor de aluminio y su ventilador estan colocados correctamente sobre el procesador y si el ventilador esta' funcionando. Si es una laptop, debes verificar si cuando la prendes el ventilador de las rejitas de ventilacion esta' suenando. Un ventilador que este' parado o con baja rotacion puede ser una de las causas del sobrecalentamiento. Pero, en los dos casos, si no es problema del ventilador del procesador, lo que hay que hacer es lo siguiente: 1 - Desarmar la computadora, y sacar el disipador de calor com mucho cuidado de sobre el procesador; 2 - Limpiar bien entre las ranuras del disipador de calor, sacandose todo el polvo y suciedad del mismo ya que el polvo ayuda a mantener el calor y sobrecalentar el procesador; 3 - Limpiar muy bien las rejillas de entrada/salida de aire, sacandose todo el polvo y suciedad, 4 - Rearmar el disipador sobre el procesador, pasando entre ellos una delgada camada de pasta termica plateada, que se puede comprar en tiendas de suminsitros y partes de computadoras (NOTA: no instale el disipador sobre el procesador sin pasar la pasta termica, porque podra' seguir sobrecalentandose); 5 - Rearmar la computadora. Caso usted no tenga facilidad en armar y desarmar la computadora, seria bueno contactarse con un tecnico de su confianza para hacer ese trabajo para usted. !Espero que esa respuesta pueda haberle sido util! PD.: Como ese sitio web solamente accepta caracteres en Ingles, la acentuacion no puede ser utilizada normalmente... Saludos, Miguel Luiz Martins

Black screen acer aspire Z5771

i fixed my Z3771 by shorting the CMOS/BIOS jumper/s. and it worked. Original Problem: Power supply was ok. But the screen was blank, it wont switch on as well. When a lan cable is inserted into the lan port, the lan port would light and flicker. So the motherboard was getting the power supply. but it wouldnt switch on. So opened the back covers, then the metal plate on the right that covers the RAM, etc. And on the motherboard was the two CMOS/BIOS jumpers. its located on the upper right of the CMOS battery in the image. The power supply was supplying the power to motherboard. i only shorted the one marked with red arrow and the pc beeped. So you just take the jumper out and move it back and place it. then take it out and put it back in the original position, U can leave it for a few seconds before returning to original position. then i pressed the power switch and it beeped and turned on, BIOS was reset. I loaded default BIOS to start the PC. Played up twice during OS loading, but eventually windows came up.1fcb0d6e-280d-4a14-a1f4-ab920d552e36.jpg

I can't watch movies in my laptop.

you need to find an approprieate programme that will be able to play movies of any format.

go to filehippo.com and download VLC or Videolan and a Gomplayer or Divx. I am sure that these would be able to play you your movies.

ACER Aspire 1640 model ZL8 I have determined that

acer has no service manuals so all you can do is get the PC fixed in a shop or google dismantle or youtube dismantle. ACER Aspire 1640 there is no other ways, and acer does stink on docs and then in 10years deletes what is there. not too laptops are the same of 100,000 models unless are. rare that.. that is why I buy dell, heck they have full service manual and even a video web page that shows all dismantle steps. you do get what you pay for and support tops my list. Dell wins acer fails hard. ah but was dirt cheap. sure.

I've had my Acer Aspire V5-531 for about seven months now and it recenetly started to make a loud humming noise every time I pick it up or just move it a little bit. It's usually going on for

mute the speakers if still sounds noisy the fan inside is packed in lint and needs to be cleaned out or overeheating is bad news. why not ask a shop to look into this. we can take it apart (covers ) and user or stethoscope to hear noise. a $5 tool that is. and all shops have one or DIY one. I put my hear to hDD casings me, i use tube and put it near the fan vent to hear it scream. there is no other way besides unplugging all that 1 by one to hear it go silent. this is SOP, vast PC's pack up in lint and fail.
