I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi all hoping someone can help me with this I was online earlier when suddenly my laptop started screaming about a virus being detected My virus protection expired last week and I hadn t got around to replacing it thanks to having no money so in a bit of laptop 5335 will Acer boot up not Aspire a panic I immediately turned off Acer Aspire 5335 laptop will not boot up my modem and then turned off the laptop Now however the laptop will not start up here s the exact sequence of events that takes place on pressing power on Acer loading screen starts as normal Blue loading bar fills at normal speed Screen then switches to blank black screen with a flashing cursor in the top left corner Pressing most buttons produced a high pitched beep sound and the only thing that seems to do anything is Ctrl-Alt-Delete which simply seems to reset the black screen with the flashing cursor - the screen goes black then reverts to the erroneous screen I can still get into my Setup Utility screen by pressing F during the Acer boot screen but when it goes beyond that none of the F buttons will work Any suggestions EDIT Some more information It s a Vista machine Warranty expired ages ago sadly And I haven t opened it up yet nbsp

A:Acer Aspire 5335 laptop will not boot up

First, we can suggest a number of security softwares that are absolutely free and are excellent in protection.

Second, there is the possibility you'll need to do a reformat due to infection. However, first go to our Virus and Malware Removal forum and read the Updated 8 Step sticky. At this point it doesn't see you'll be able to necessarily do the steps but at least familirize yourself with the process.

Then on that forum, if you cannot do the steps, post your issues and make sure you tell them about the virus.

My Acer Travelmate has suddenly developed a problem with part of the screen being blacked out.
It is a widescreen and about 3" on the right hand side now blacked out as though it has now become a 4:3 format. There is also a ghost taskbar along the bottom of the screen that I can't get rid of.

I have tried refreshing the screen again to 1024x768 but it does not cure it.

I am unsure if it is a hardware problem ie the screen backlighting has failed or a control board has faulted.

Has anyone any ideas that I could try to pinpoint the problem please?

Thanx

My dad had this laptop for work.. The model is travelmate 2700.

Im not sure if its the computer, or the screen, but if I dont firmly hold the top left corner of the screen, the screen will slowly turn white. But when i hold the corner, its still usable.

My dad tinkered with it once and took the top left screw out (he's a computer technician) and then it worked for a while. But then the sme problem resurfaced. Eventually he put th screw back in.

The computer is still functional when the screen is white/in the midst of fading. For example, even if i cant see whats going on, i can still type, and the mouse will still move. As im typing this, for example, the screen is completely white.

Thats basically the problem. Any help?

The laptop turns on when you hit the power switch; the power light comes on, and the cd drive will open and shut, but there is no other sign of life.

So far I have tryed fully charging it, turning it on with and without power supply, and I have also tryed attaching it to an external TFT monitor but I have had no luck.

Are there any other obvious things to try or likely problems with it?

Thanks
 

A:Acer travelmate 512dx powers on but nothing on screen

Check the backlight

Take a flashlight and shine into the screen from different angles after it is started. If you can see your icons with the flashlight the backlight is out or if nothing is there possibly the power inverter. Have you tried pluging in to a regular monitor via the vga port on the rear. This is a sure test if it displays on the regular monitor.

Since an upgrade to Win 10 my screen is less legible . The only windows tool is brightness which means if I reduce the glare by lowering brightness , the readability of fonts reduces also . I have already increased font size to 125% but that doesnt help with the lack of boldness or darkness of the basic fonts.

My last usage was last last night. Then..as morning came, it powers up but it is only on Acer logo screen. No circles. The F2 and F12 function does not function too. The only thing that functions is the CTRL+ALT+DEL which restarts the system. I've installed Windows 10 and Windows 8.1 in here. So it is a dual boot. My IT friend told me that it is the result of Dual OS. So any help with this guys? Experts? Anyone. Thanks and God bless.

My Acer travelmate 2304LCi suddenly has a blank screen on starting. I have tried an external monitor but it is the same. The screen is just black, nothing on it at all.It was all working last time i used it about 2 month ago. Can anyone offer any helpful suggestions?

I can hear the disk spinning up for bout 30 seconds.
The fan spins for about the same time.
The battery charging light is on.

I have tried a different power adaptor.
I have held the on button down for 60+ seconds whilst without battery or mains power.
i have tried with the RAM removed

Any help appreciated. Thanks

A:Travelmate B113-E Stucked in the Acer Logo Screen

Dual boot shouldn't really have anything to do with it.If you have anything plugged in,usb, sdcard, etc. remove it.  Remove the power and battery, hold down the power button for 60 seconds, plug in without battery and try.Tap Alt+F10 at boot and see if recovery starts. If not you may have a failed HDD.

I have a Travelmate 2300 laptop. it powers on ok and it seems to be running fine apart from that the screen doesn’t turn on, it just remains black. The backlight doesn’t even come on. I have tried plugging in an external monitor and using the FN key to try and get the laptop to display on the monitor but it still doesn’t work.

I’m not really sure what to try next.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance

A:acer aspire 5742 goes from black screen to screen ...

The fact that you were able to boot normally after F2 into the bios menu, F9 to re-set the bios to factory default, then F10 to save this default bios setting, ***strongly*** suggests that the bios was losing it's memory of the specific hard drive that was installed.    Jack E/NJ

You could increase the time before your hard drive turns off. I have one for my wirless adapter with maximum performance down to low. Your lan may be listed if your not wireless. A combination of increasing the hdd time and lan may get you around the problem.

The screen went to sleep...not unusual. But it wouldn't come back on. I powered it off and back on and the power light comes on and I can hear the fan, but I don't hear it accessing the hard drive. I tried holding down the power button for several minutes, but no change. No beeps and nothing at all on the screen. I also do not see the laptop listed as connected to my home network. Most of the suggestions I've seen involve removing the battery but this model doesn't have an easily accessible battery, so disassembly would be required. Model ES1-511-C59V Any suggestions as to anything else I can try before I have to pay someone to fix it, or replace it?

Power is on (white or orange light on upper left of keyboard) but cannot get screen to respond. On UTube there is a video concerning a different Acer that downloads some software. Would this work? And could I download this Acer repair software to a memorystick on my Mac to then insert into the black screen Acer to activate . Many thanks in advance for your help.

Just got the computer, and everything works fine but randomly with no rhyme or reason, the screen blacks out, usually lasts for a second or so, sometimes longer, then pops back up.  Seems like a display problem but Im not sure what it is.  There's no other issues as this is a brand new computer.

Hi,

I have a problem with my friend's Acer 5920 laptop and I can't figure out how to fix it. When I turn the laptop on it asks to choose from the following configurations:

Safe Mode
Safe mode with Networking
Safe mode with command prompt
start windows normally

When I choose 'Start windows normally' the Vista loading bars appear and then the screen turns completely black. The mouse pointer is visible.

I tried to enter into Safe mode, but the same thing happens; A black screen with a visible mouse pointer.

Can anyone help please?

Thanks

looks like a corrupted windows component. if you want to 'reformat' it press ALT+F10 after turning on it should lead you to Acer eRecovery console. Be sure to backup before formatting.

They are gone if I am to scroll it up and down. It's okay at first but it has started to annoy me for I have to do it most of the time when I am surfing the web. Also, it is most likely not a dead pixel as I have done the fullscreen colour test and there isn't any abnormality.

Hello, Welcome to TSF.

Turn on laptop, have a flash light ready give it time to get to desktop.

Shine the flashlight into the screen holding it pretty close, moving it around to see if you can see anything in background of screen.

Are you able to see anything?

Try powering up the laptop as if to normally boot. Do you hear any Windows welcoming tones as if the computer actually booted but with no display? If so, have you tried to simply toggle the screen on and off with the Fn+F5 or Fn+F6 key combinations? Jack E/NJ

Hello guys

I've got a problem with my aunt's Acer Aspire One AO751h. The netbook is rather slow. I get an occasional BSOD & sometimes just a black screen - netbook is ON but nothing.

? OS - Windows 7
? x86 (32-bit)?
? What was original installed OS on system? - Windows XP
? Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)? - Purchased
? Age of system (hardware) - 5 years
? Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? - 1 year
? CPU - Intel Atom Z520 @ 1.33 GHz
? Video Card - Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 500


P.S: I'll have access to this netbook only for 2 days, then I'll be away for 2 days. So, sorry to keep you waiting.

A:Slow Acer. BSOD. Black Screen.

Hi Babbzzz,

A quick look through shows links to NTFS and ReadyBoost, this looks like a hardware problem; check the drives (Seatools then chkdsk /f /r then 3x runs of SFC /scannow), remove the USB/SD card and disable ReadyBoost, test the RAM (7+ passes on each stick in Slot 1, if both check out ok, test 1 of them in Slot 2): Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure and Memory Diagnostics

Went to restart my laptop after noticing a restart and update prompt. After it downloaded the updates it looked as if it went to restart. But nothing happened screen went black, still has power and its charging my phone as I write this. Have tried the hard resets and have taken information from this site from people with similar problems but nothing has worked. Absolutely nothing comes on the screen when hard reset in light you can see power to the screen but it stays black. Anyone have similar issues? It's fairly new and not used too often.

Sounds like its either the LCD screen or the inverter or the backlight in the lcd screen.

Either way its a fairly easy fix since you just replace them.

Since its a 14" screen from what I could find, your looking at the $100 Range for a new LCD not including installation or an inverter if you need it.

A:Solved: black screen on acer aspire

Hi and welcome to TSG.

I am no laptop expert but will try and give you some things to check.

Have you managed to turn the laptop off? Try holding down the power button for up to 10 seconds, this should turn it off.
When you turn it back on do you get anything at all on the screen? Does everything else respond normally, just as if it was booting up (apart from the screen), ie, power light on, hard drive light flashing etc?

If you can't see anything on the screen easily try shining a good torch directly at the screen when you turn it on, and look at it closely, if you can see the normal image by using the torch that would imply that you backlight has failed.

Another possible problem could be the inverter for the screen, these can be changed on most (if not all) laptops. On many it isn't a particularly difficult job (bit fiddly though) but if you are unsure it may be worth getting it checked by a recognised engineer. If you want to try it yourself there are guides on the internet for many makes and models of laptop and I am sure people here will help / guide you through it.

I am leaning toward one of those two because it was left on overnight with the screen locked, this could burn something out, although the screen should turn off when you close the case anyway.

I have the same issue.Have you recently installed Windows 10 upgrade.It maybe a coincidence that this was the first time i had used my charger since installing the upgrade.Does the screen come back on when you unplug the charger?

Please...do not interrupt the system anytime that a chkdsk is in progress.

Leave the system alone...when the system has file problems or the hard drive or partition is fouled up...it's normal for the chkdsk to go back toan earlier stage, IME.

When the chkdsk is finished and the system boots into Windows...I suggest that you do the following:

a. Start/Run...type chkdsk /r and hit Enter.

b. Type Y in new screen and hit Enter.

c. Reboot the system. The chkdsk /r command will run to completion...before booting into Windows.

Just removed Home Premium and reformatted drive and removed EISA configuration partition.

Now when I try to install Ultimate, it says "No drivers for HDD", its a Hitachi 160GB,

Any information will be appreciated.

A:Acer Travelmate driver

Probably referring to the SATA driver, which you should be able to get from Acer. If you can find it just put it on a USB key (if you have one) and when you get o the part in the install when it asks about installing drivers point it at the USB key.

Highly unlikely that a full system disk would be available for download.

Individual driver files for audio, video etc would be available on the makers website most likely but not the Windows system itself.

Can someone please help me with the above mentioned laptop, I have had it just over a year and it will not switch on now. When I press the power button it lights up, act as if it is going to boot up then just cuts out and switches off (it doesnt get even as far as switching the screen on), this even happens when I have the mains adapter attached to it. It did this once earlier in the week, I left it about 10 minutes then tried again and it powered up, now it is just constantly cutting out. Any help would be gratefully appreciated, thanks.

Hi All.

I have owned a Travelmate 290 for 3 years. I have not had any trouble with it in that time until now. The lap top will run for a time then the screen will start to flicker, the touchpad will become erratic and the HDD light will come on. Sometimes after a few minutes the laptop will return to normal, sometimes it will lock up with the HDD light on and the power light off (The laptop lives mainly on the mains but these symptoms also occur when it is on battery power). The only way to get out of this situation is to unplug the power supply and remove the battery. I have scanned the laptop for viruses and spyware. None were found.

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks in Advance

A:Acer travelmate locking up

3 suggestions:

1) Monitor your CPU/MB/HDD temperatures. It could be overheating.
2) Check the Event Viewer in Windows
3) Get Process Explorer. See what is taking up your CPU during the problem.

Process Explorer is free:
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/utilities/processexplorer.mspx

Speed Fan is free (temp monitoring):
http://www.almico.com/sfdownload.php

Come back and post any significant warnings in Event Viewer, what is using all your CPU (if anything) during the issue, and your temperatures.

A:ACER TravelMate 2420 *HELP*

changing boot settings will only allow you to boot to another device first.

10 to 1 the hard drive got ruined when the laptop was dropped, especially if it was running while it was dropped. The platters in the hard drive spin at about 5400 RPM's and the read/write heads basically float over the platters, believe about 50nm's. in other words imagine a plane flying at about a million miles an hour at an altitude of 50 feet....and then you get dropped, you just left a nice long gash that nothing can live in again (data on the hard drive)

you can run a diagnostic test on the hard drive to be sure.

but to get it to boot from the cd, just need to push the right key to open the boot selection menu when its loading the bios. F12 on most laptops, but forgot on acers, might be F11

Hello
I was given an Acer travelmate C-100 and it came with everything pretty much unused.
When I try to turn it on it just won't. No lights light up or anything.
I have charged it for a long time and I also have plugged it in and it still won't start.

The green light on the power source plug lights up the little green light so I know the plug works I have also unplugged and replugged the power souce plugs.
I have never used let alone seen one of these. The book troubleshooting says check plugs and that is about it.
Can anyone help me?

I was planning to get a laptop but due to budget constraint I have kind of decided on Acer Travelmate 4335. But I wish to install Vista on it rather than the Linux it comes with. My problem is I am not quite sure about the built in graphics card it comes with. I don't need a very high end graphics card, but I won't like it to be the same as my age old desktop (which can't run vista aero). So if anyone is using this laptop on Vista, pls let me know how does it perform ...

Vista will slow that machine down far too much. XP would be a far better choice for an OS on that machine. Vista is a resource hog, and that laptop isn't going to do well with it.

My screen went black after long transportation and is probably physically broken.
Unfortunately during several attempts to upgrade windows 8.1 to 10 the Intel graphic driver was inactivated so I can no longer use laptop with neither hdmi nor vga cable.
 
I've tried to remove cmos battery in order to reset BIOS without success.
Also tried to flash BIOS Q5WV1221.exe file from a USB-stick (fat32) pressing Fn + Esc + power button without success.
 
Would it activate Intel Graphic driver to flash BIOS with USB-stick? How is that done?
Any suggestions how to activate Intel Graphic driver with a totally black screen?

I have an acer aspire v3-571gOn trying to boot up my laptop by pushing the power button, the leds light up and the fan starts ( I can hear it spin) and the laptop starts but the screen remains black and does not even light up. The screen remains pitch black without any change at all.After force-shutdown 12 to 13 times, I rebooted my laptop and the screen suddenly started working.This happened once before as well and I didn't think much of it untill it happened again. I don't understand why the screen randomly chose to black out and not respond until after several restarts. I tried removing the battery, pressing power button for about 30 seconds, rebooting, starting without battery (with power source) and nothing worked. It randomly and unexpectedly started working (just like it had stopped).

Hello wnepi2,
 
You should read this topic (Chigers): black screen - flash bios V5-571
You have the same setup bios utility (V5-531 or V5-571): Phoenix SecureCore Tiano BIOS
 
To summarize:
1- Download the bios file on the acer support website
2- If it's necessary (Windows version), extract the self-extratible file (*.exe) contained in the zip
    file with 7-zip
3- Format an USB flash drive to FAT or FAT32
4- Copy all files on this one (contained in the Dos or Windows(#2) folder)
5- Follow the instructions of Chigers to recorver the bios

if xp you can reinstall windows then the problem should be solved
anyways try first using windows xp cd

if vista use windows vista cd ok

if you want your data back just remove the harddisk make it as external and if you have any available pc then stored it to the pc first make sure you have and external casing for laptop harddisk or some friend whom you trusted
anyways if dont know how to do that make sure you get help from expert like pc technician okay
