Acer Aspire 3680 will not boot up

Q: Acer Aspire 3680 will not boot up

Hello,

I have an Acer Aspire 3680 and yesterday, when I tried to boot up, it gives a black screen, no images, prompts, sounds etc. I can hear the fan and the lights on the front are on.

I have read many posts and tried some things but I am now lost. I have tried;

*Plugging in external monitor - cannot get anything on second screen
*Taking out battery, draining power, restarting numerous time - no luck
*Hitting function keys to try to get to set-up screen - no luck

The memory is very full (close to capacity) althouh I'm not sure if this is related.

I have read in some posts about dowloading BIOS files on a memory stick but I can't find any information specific to the 3680.

Thanks in advance for your help. I really need to get booted up so I can recover and backup a lot of personal files and photos.

Regards

Preferred Solution: Acer Aspire 3680 will not boot up

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.)

If you are looking for a new Acer boot Disk then you'll have to pay for one from Acer.

Have you tried to test for bad RAM or try and boot into safe mode?

I have an Acer Aspire 3680 with 1.5 GB ram with Vista Home. I upgraded it to Windows 7. Now everything is fine except the fact that Acer has not made any Utilities (like "Acer Empowering Technology) for Windows 7.

Is it possible to use such Utilities from other (later) Acer models? If so, which one should I use.

Thanks.

A:Utilities for Acer Aspire 3680

I've used later model drivers on my previous gen machines before with good effect. Try to find a model with hardware similar to yours, then download and install the drivers for it.

I won't say this won't mess up your computer though.

To see your hardware, try this excellent program.

I recently bought this new notebook that came preloaded with Vista that you had to buy a license to activate it. I already had a new copy of xp pro so I installed that system. I was able to download all the drivers that I needed for xp from their web site. The only problem is that I cannot get the computer the install the ethernet controller drivers. I often have this kind of problem with my other computers, just not very knowledgeable on that sort of thing. Any helpfun hints would be greatly appreaciated.
 

A:Acer aspire 3680 notebook

I had a hard time finding the driver, or rather one that worked. If you send me your email address I will forward it to you. I don't remember where I found it otherwise I would send you the link. I just wish ACER was like Dell and would send a restore disk with all the drivers. I'm having problems downloading the drivers I need from their site. My CD Rom just stopped working AGAIN .... Have a good one.

There's several different reasons for this error.The first thing to try is to run Startup Repair: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/repair-windows-with-windows-startup-repair/Once that's done, also run the Windows Memory Diagnostic from the same screens. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/using-vista-windows-memory-diagnostics-tool/Finally, download a bootable hard drive diagnostic from the manufacturer of your hard drive.

Hello,

I have an ACER Aspire 3680 laptop. About 1 year ago, I purchased an OEM battery (compatible based on number match) to replace the manufacturer's battery that had stopped charging. I installed the battery, plugged in the AC adapter and turned on the computer. Once fully booted, the battery icon said "Battery not found". The laptop works as long as it's plugged in to the AC adapter, but powers off immediately if the adapter is removed.

I'm not sure if this is a hardware issue or a software issue. My thought is that it might be solved by updating a driver, but it could also be that the hardware that converts the AC to charge the batter is defunct.

I appreciate all suggestions!

Hello and welcome to TSF, bache!

Do you have the original Vista DVD or would you prefer XP over Vista?

If you don't have the Vista DVD, try calling up Acer as I have and ask for a recovery disc, or maybe a new Vista DVD. You never the magic they might make happen.

Hello everyone! I'm seeming to have a very strange issue with my wifi. I have very good wifi in my bedroom, however when I move just 10-15 feet over in the other room I lose it completely. I was able to keep the wifi connection throughout the house not too long ago, so this is just a new problem. I have an Acer Aspire 3680, and my wireless network adapter is Atheros AR5007EG Wireless Network Adapter. The wifi connection is strong throughout the house, I can prove this because my phone wifi, AND my ipod touch wifi are able to keep 5 bars even if I go outside on the porch. Anyways, any help is appreciated. Thank you for reading.

Hi, I'm interested in purchasing an Acer Aspire 3680-2682 laptop with an intel celeron M 440 from a friend (for less than $300,) the same laptop featured in this add http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/Acer...psm/oid/185211/rpem/ccd/productDetail.do#tabs
He has had no problems with it, but decided to buy a better, gaming oriented laptop. I don't really mind for gaming or plan to run programs with high demand of speed power, but I wanted to know what processors are compatible in case I wanted an upgrade to a faster CPU (if it's even possible, since I know some CPUs come soldered to the main board) or if it's even worth it to go all the way for an upgrade.
 

A:Acer Aspire 3680-2682 processor compatibility

Never plan on upgrading the CPU in a laptop, even if it is socketed, there is often BIOS limitations and there is always heat dissipation issues.

Laptops are designed to be able to "just cope" with the heat generated by the CPU that they ship with. A faster one, if possible to fit, generates more heat. That would "speed step" the processor back to save it from destruction, resulting in probably no improvement.

Apart from HDD and RAM, laptops are not upgradeable.

Hi,

Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop, upgraded to Windows 10, does not always start. It needed a new battery, so I bought one.

I did the discharge procedure, taking the battery out, holding the start button down, and that works occasionally.

One weird thing that does happens is this. If I take the battery out, plug in the charger, the power light does not come on. Put the battery back in and with the power cord plug in, the power light comes on.

Sometimes it will start with just battery power, other time with power supply plug in.
What is going on? Help please!

Try booting to Memtest86 you can burn a CD and I think it can also be run from a USB bootable flash drive. This will test your memory for problems and also let you know that the hardware in general will run (except the hard drive which is ignored at this stage.If the memory is good, then boot to your hard drive mfg's utility or Seatools from Seagate (DOS version) the same as Memtest but it tests your hard drive to see if it is just the drive that you cannot install on.If the memory and hard drive tests OK then you may just need to delete all current partitions on the hard drive before trying to install.If the memory does not test good, try cleaning the contacts on the memory with a soft pencil eraser and snapping them in and out 5 or 6 times to also burnish the slot's contacts. Then try memtest again on one stick at a time in case one stick is bad, swap and try again.You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

i don't think that you are able to select windows 7 or 8.1 from BIOS, maybe it's a bootloader that gives you that option. press Del to enter BIOS and check if D2D support is enabled, if not, enabled it and then press F10, save and exit.at next reboot, press Alt+F10 to enter Acer erecovery, if this doesn't work, you need to buy Acer recovery disks. Acer recovery mediaif you are in the US you can buy it:http://us-store.acer.com/erecovery/rcd/if you are outside the US, you must call/email your regional Acer support service:http://www.acer.com/worldwide/support/

I fell asleep with my laptop on my bed and in the morning I found it on the floor open. It didn't seem to receive any external damage at all, though every program froze up. Thinking that it would help, I turned it off and turned it back on. Now it won't boot past the acer logo. It gets to the green acer logo and just stays like that. Can someone please help? This is the only laptop I have and will have fir a while.

I've had the netbook for about 2 years, and it has performed very well.

One night I shut it down normally and the next morning when I turned it on windows XP Home edition started normal for about 20 secs, and a fast blue screen comes up which I can't read.

Then a b&w screen comes up saying windows could not start, and gave me several options. I've tried them all.

What happens is windows tries starting but I always come back to the black and white screen.

I can't get into safe mode.

I have the factory restore disks, but don't want to lose the data on the hdd.

Is the hdd toast?

A:Acer Aspire One won't boot

On the Safe Mode menu there is an option to disable the automatic reboot. That will allow you to check the blue screen for error codes.

When you say you can't get into safe mode does that mean you get the blue screen when booting to safe mode also?

Chances are the data is fine but there's no way to know without additional testing.

Have you installed SP1 and Sp2 and subsequent updates?

Since the CD lights come one and then nothing afterwards, it sounds like a hard drive problem. I'm assuming the CD drive is the first boot device in the BIOS.

Hello folks,

My sister's Acer Aspire 3002LMI has recently ceased to power on whatsoever. Bought in '05 and run mostly from the mains, it suddenly acted as though it was running out of battery - despite being plugged into the mains - and went into hibernation.

By the time she showed it to me, pressing the power button would just make the battery charge LED flash 8 times - nothing else. Now, a few days later, absolutely nothing happens when I press the power button.

The problem occurs regardless of whether the battery is in the laptop. She never used the laptop without the battery in - as it formed part of the base - so whether it ever worked without the battery is not certain. I've also tried using another power cable, to no avail.

So, any ideas what the cause of this problem could be? Any suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,
Rob

The lights are on I even hear the fan but nothing the screen doesn't show anything.
Could anyone help me with this.
Thanks in advance.

Try reseating the memory. If you have more than one stick, try booting with just one stick, and then alternating. Sometimes, it can be the memory slot itself, so try the other.

Also, be sure to have all external devices unplugged: USB sticks, hard drives, mice, etc.

I have an Acer Aspire M1100 that I bought for my late wife in 2008. It has been sitting in the corner of my living room virtually untouched for 6-9 months. I have not used it as it is using Windows Vista and is incredibly slow in comparison to my laptop.

I have recently decided to try and sell it as I need the space but it refuses to boot up. I switch it on and occassionally the monitor flashes up ACER followed by NO SIGNAL but does nothing else. I have tried different monitors on it and checked all the connections but always get the same result. I can hear the internal fans whirring and the 'on' light comes on but nothing else.

Any suggestions?

2. I've turned of secure boot.
3. I've tried it with a DVD.
4. The USB and DVD boot both work on my laptop.

It looks like whatever I do I always get this text in my screen:

"Reboot and Select proper Boot Device or Insert Boot Media in selected device and press a key"

Has anyone any idea what this can be? It gets really frustrating that this PC is unresponsive to any change and will not boot anything. Much thanks for the help in advance.

A:Vista will not boot - Acer Aspire

Are you hitting the F8 key early enough, you should start to tap on it as soon as the Acer logo dissapears.

You have set the USB CDROM to first in the boot order, are you using an external CD drive? The drive in the laptop will not be listed as a USB device, you need to set the internal CD drive to 1st in the boot order.

You can buy a device called a USB Hard Drive Adapter for about €10. If you get one you can remove your hard drive and use this device to connect it to another PC. You can then extract all your files and run some diagnostics on the drive which I can give instructions for.

If the copy of Vista you have does not exactly match your version of Vista and is at the same service pack level, or higher, it will not work. It should boot the laptop but you will not be able to use it for any kind of repair as it will produce an error. You can download a Vist repair disc for your version from here: http://neosmart.net/blog/2009/windows-7-system-repair-discs/

Just checked the above link and downloads are suspended but may be back soon.

A:Acer Aspire 4553 won't boot up

Well first, if this is a new laptop it is under warranty and you should first attempt to return it for replacement or repair. Making major changes on your own may void that warranty.

If the laptop will not boot at all you could try a power reset:
To perform a power reset:
Remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter or the power cord from the computer.
Press and hold down the power button on the computer down for 30 seconds and then release the button.
Plug in the AC adapter or power cord again, reinsert the battery, and power on the computer.
The BIOS upgrades for the 4553 show corrections to a no-boot situation, so you may be on the right track with a need for a BIOS upgrade (but see point one above). The problem is that you need to be able to get into the BIOS to do an upgrade on most machines, so until you can get it to BOOT that option is not available.

Flashing the BIOS is serious business. Do it wrong and you turn your shiny new laptop into a brick. So let's see if you can get into the bios first and check some things. Usually you press the DEL, F2, or ESC key when the laptop first starts to get in (check your screen - it will say what key somewhere). Don't make any changes unless you are sure of what they do. Just check to see you can get in and look around, then we can take it from there.

Also, be sure your model number is exact: 4553 and not 4553g. Installing the wrong BIOS will cause a very bad day.

Your 4553 laptop BIOS versions are here:

This is my first time ever needing to ask a question online for any reason I can usually find the information I require this time however I cannot I have an One Boot Aspire Acer Failure Acer Aspire One D - that I haven t been able to figure out after what feels like exhausting every option I am about to give up on it which I d really like not too since the hardware still seems functional in every way After turning the machine on it takes an abnormal amount of time -- seconds or so -- to enter POST It will display the ACER screen with Fast boot Acer Aspire One Boot Failure mode enabled and the POST info when disabled In either instance the screen only appears for second enough time to see it detect the HDD and to see the F bios and F boot order options I can access the BIOS it will detect the HDD and appears to work Acer Aspire One Boot Failure normally I can enter the boot menu also The problem occurs immediately after the POST when accessing the HDD The screen flashes a lit black then turns completely black with no back light then after about a literal minute it will restart and repeat I have tried multiple HDD s and they both have the same issue I have also ran diagnostics on the RAM If I remove the HDD it will report back that No Bootable Media was detected whereas it auto reboots with the HDD in it will not auto reboot in this case I ve tried to boot from Windows AND Linux DVD CD s as well as USB drives with bootable Linux the problem is that in POST the PC WILL NOT DETECT ANY USB DEVICES and that goes for in the BIOS as well I can change the boot orders to be correct remove the HDD insert both USB CD DVD ROM and a bootable USB and then press f to access Boot menu Once there the only thing that appears is the network boot option and with the HDD in I see the HDD option as well but never any USB options This prevents me from flashing the BIOS or doing any other CD based diagnostics I know the hard drives are OK but I don t know if they have any OS on them I d like to be able to install one via DVD but I can t boot up my netbook with a HDD in it without it rebooting and it wont detect any external DVD ROM i have So in conclusion the only way to make POST stable without auto reboot is to remove the HDD and sit at the quot No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key quot screen However it still continues to take about seconds to start the POST It will not detect anything extrnal via POST or inside BIOS I tried flashing the BIOS I cannot When starting the netbook with Fn Esc keys held down it boots the same way Can anyone help me with this does it sounds like a BIOS Mobo issue even though it starts up and POST s OK without HDD inside it when I know the HDD s are working nbsp

my acer aspire 4920 can only enter the setup menu...(by pressing F2 when the acer screen comes up) booting from cds does not work at all...
the logo menu shows up and after that just a black screen with nothing at all...it cant boot up at all and doesnt even reach the windows logo menu...what can i do to salvage the data?
 

A:Acer aspire 4920 cannot boot at all

Remove the hard drive, buy a USB enclosure for that laptop hard drive, and connect it to a desktop coputer. You should be able to access the data that way

Hey gang,I have an acer aspire axc-603g that is stuck in a loop boot after running windows updates. I can't get it to boot to a Hiren's CD or USB drive. I've tried disabling secure boot in the bios and enabling the boot menu but whenever I access the boot menu the only option that shows up is "windows boot manager" which then sends me back into the boot loop. The bios version is P11-B0I'm at a loss and any help would be greatly appreciated.

We have a netbook that crashed this afternoon - went to the wall paper when we were doing a virus scan

Did the scan - found the virus - deleted the virus - computer monitor went to the wallpaper.

Netbook has been shut down and started back up, several times. Now we get the wallpaper.

I can push F12 and start it in safe mode. But there are no icons and right clicking on the mouse does not bring up the normal menu,

Control Alt Delete brings up the task manager that shows a bunch of stuff happening - but none are shown as icons on the desktop. There is no task bar at the bottom either.

ANY help you can offer - would REALLY be appreciated

Thank you

Hi,

I have a Acer Aspire, which had a boot issue, so it wasn't able to boot correctly into Windows Vista Home Basic.

I ran the Acer Recovery by pressing F11 at boot time. And it was able to recover and boot into Windows Vista.

However after the automatic Acer Launch Install and a some smaller Windows Updates, the computer have the same boot problem as before.

I have tried to run Windows Vistas Startup recovery thingy, without luck.

Have anyone faced this problem before or know what may be causing it?

Hello,

I have an acer aspire 5100 that does not even boot. It crashes early and tries to reboot without success. None of the other booting modes work either, all crash early. I can go to the bios with f2 and something seems strange. In the boot priority order, I have:
1: IDE 0: TSHIBA MK6034GAX-(PM)
2: IDE 1: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T10N-(P
3: SATA:
4: PCI BEV: Realtek Boot Agent
5: USB HDD:
etc. usb all empty.

Shouldn't the hard drive be in SATA?
I don't know how to solve the problem. A boot disk maybe?
Thanks,
Serge.

Several months ago, i was using my acer aspire 5100 laptop when the mouse suddenly stopped moving and the computer became unresponsive. When i restarted it it worked for about 30 seconds and the same thing happened. I've removed the operating system and initially, i was able to re-install it, only to find the same problem. I then wiped the hard drive using a boot CD and now it won't even boot from disk. Also, it froze when installing windows xp (I think this was the same issue as when it initially broke), and for a while it came up with a PXE-61 error which now no longer appears.
The laptop managed to run linux ubuntu for about a week no problem until the same error occurred.
any tips would be great

Thanks

A:Acer Aspire Laptop won't start/boot

You can either have a failing hard drive on your hands or an over heating system or perhaps both. First lets test your hard drive by going to another computer if possible.

Download UBCD which is in my signature.Burn the ISO Image to a blank CD using Imgburn (How to burn a ISO Image using Imgburn) burn at lowest speed. With the newly burned cd boot with the cd go to HDD>Diagnostics>The make and model of your hard drive, Seagate, Maxtor, Drive Fitness which is Hitachi, Or Western Digital. Perform a short and long test. Could also be called "Standard" and "Extended" test or also "Comprehensive" test. The Seagate hard drive test will work on most drives.

If you can not find the right test for your hard drive your OEM computer may have it's own hard drive diagnostics testing tool. Refer to your OEM computer documentation to find out how to access these test. Also try going to the manufacture of your machine to find documentation about it. Also consider going to the manufacture of your hard drive to look to see if they have hard drive diagnostics test. The ideal test or method would include an ISO that could be burned via an image to a cd which would be made bootable.

Also go into bios under Hardware Monitor or PC health and look at temp readings and post here.

Then we will give the next steps depending on the results.

Also I see in your profile you have listed Windows XP. This a Windows 7/Vista portion of TSF. Can you tell us which version of Windows you have so we can better assist you.

That is what those messages are basically telling you. It hasn't found a hard drive

Remove and reseat the hard drive and see if they go away.

You may be able to boot from a CD or USB and test the hard drive if it is recognised.

A:USB Boot Issues on Acer Aspire S7-392 UEFI, GPT, etc.

I purchased a recovery USB from Acer. This USB stick boots fine and the Windows 8 install goes smoothly until, when it is finally finished, and it says that the version of Windows that I have now installed is inactive and must be activated with a Microsoft Product Key. Acer won't do anything about it and wants me to return the machine to them to be repaired.

Hello!

I have an Acer Aspire One, that doesn't boot into Windows or into Safe Mode. I have tried to Flash the Bios as explained on many other sites, but I can't get that to run. I have also tried to F8 to Repair Computer option, but I do not get Repair Computer as an option. I'm stumped! When I restart it, it gives me the option to run in Safe Mode, if I do that it gets hung up on file: amdagp.sys. If I start normally it gets stuck on the Windows start screen. Help!!

A:Acer Aspire One won't boot, can't flast bios!

F8 is to access Safe Mode, Alt-F10 is used to access the Acer Recovery partition. See this link on the Acer website. I'm not sure why you were trying to flash the BIOS as that most likely wouldn't fix your boot problem.

Hello, tried installing Epson XP 610 printer by downloading system from epson site. Epson took over the internet in order to instal wifi option to printer. Whole netbook screen froze and i could do nothing. Tried reboot by turning off and on but power came on but computer failed to boot hard drive and internet. I have no reboot disc as it is a netbook with no cd player, how can I get it to boot up? HELP
 

A:acer aspire netbook boot failure

I have two Acer netbooks in the house (different models). The first thing I did was buy an external DVD burner. The next thing I did was go to Programs, Acer, Acer eRecovery Management and burn the recovery DVDs.

Note: this is a radical last resort step because it restores your netbook to how it was when it left the factory. You lose all the programs you have installed, all the windows updates and patches and any programs you have removed because of new computer bloat will be back on your netbook.
You'd hold down the alt key and press F10 when you tirn on the computer. Click Restore Computer to Factory Defaults.

I'd probably recommend a less drastic measure first.
1. Buy an external DVD burner.
2. Get someone running Windows 7 (if that's what you are running) make a repair disk. If your computer is running 64 bit Win 7, the disk has to be made with the same bit-ness.

3. Use the repair disc to see if you can get Windows to boot.

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.
