Preferred Solution: My Acer Aspire 5520 won't start

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.)

I press the power button on my laptop and the keyboard and fan kicks on for two seconds then goes off, but the screen will not power on. What is wrong with the screen

If the laptop is shutting down after a few seconds then the issue may not be with the screen.

Hello, my brother has a Acer Aspire notebook that he is wanting to change the operating system on. He wants to change it from vista to XP, I have downloaded all of the drivers to things that I think he will need but am not sure so I have come here to make sure I have what I need. So could someone please help me with that?

Hi louisj, and welcome to TSG.

This page on the Acer web site should lead you to a page where you can download all of the drivers for Windows XP 32 bit. If you go by just the Aspire 5520 model number, there may be more than one manufacturer for some of the hardware and you will need to choose the correct drivers. Acer seems to have a link to a downloadable program to identify the hardware. I don't know if only the correct drivers will be listed if you go by the notebook's serial number.

Remove the battery and the AC adapter. Press and hold the power button down for around a minute then release the button, and apply the AC adapter and see if the laptop will boot normally

A:Acer Aspire 5520 Not Booting to OS

A couple of things to try
1) As the PC starts Tap F8 - see if you get a menu appear - if so, select, with the arrow keys, safemode - see if that boots
2) You could try booting a virtual operating system - see if that loads at all - Ubuntu
UBUNTU
It may be possible to boot from another Operating System
This will at least test the Hardware

If you have another PC with a cdwriter and spare CD
goto http://www.ubuntu.com/ and download the ISO

full details are here http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/wind...backup-files-from-your-dead-windows-computer/

click on the image "download ubuntu"
Select a location
then begin download
Save the file onto your PC – remember where you saved it – so you can find it again to create the image bootable CD.

You do NOT copy the ISO file onto a CD - you have to use the ISO to create a bootable CD
The CD creator software you have on the PC may have an option to create an image from an ISO
If not - use this free program http://www.imgburn.com/

When the UBUNTU CD boots - you will see the following options
1) Try ubunto without any change to your computer
2) Install ubuntu
3) Check CD for defects
4) Test memory
5) Boot from first hard disk.

Use OPTION 1 "Try ubunto without any change to your computer" ONLY this option this will run from the CD and not install onto your harddrive - be careful, if you do install onto the PC - you will wipe the data and software OFF your hard drive.., so repeat only use option 1

Now you should see a UBUNTU desktop
This at least proves the main parts of the PC are working

Can you boot into Safe Mode? To do this, rapidly tap the F8 key just before the Windows Splash Screen shows up.

Once in, you should be able to access the menu to make the restore CD/DVD's if your system is capable of it.

Also, you may be able to restore the system using the recovery partition - if so you should be able to access it by pressing Alt and F11 when booting. This command may differ for your system - so check the boot screen for more info.

Finally, you can obtain recovery disks from Acer by using the info at this link: http://www.carrona.org/recdisc.html

Everything worked fine until yesterday when I tryed to backup everything from my laptop to dvds because of a scheduled format. Since then the optical drive is not recognized in BIOS nor explorer. The doors open and when I insert a dvd or cd it seems as it is trying to read thru the data. The device is not shown in device manager either. Any ideas?

Our Acer Aspire has dark screen. I found suggestion on line that it could be the BIOS.
Found a site that leads one as to how to flash the BIOS. Found and dowloaded the one
that seems to match the model.
The process was to down load on another machine, put it on flash drive and plug into the faulty
Acer, hold down FNC/ESC and PWR keys for a long time with the USB drive plugged in.
Done this and at some point the screen came up with logon, etc.
Still doesn't always come up. Am wondering if the little process didn't actually flash the BIOS or
had the wrong version.
Couldn't find the actual version of BIOS on this machine. How if it's blank!
Any suggestions?

A:Acer Aspire 5520 running Vista: Need BIOS

Updating the BIOS should never be done, unless the update addresses or fixes an issue that a computer is having.

A bad or failed BIOS update can leave you with a non-working computer.

There's a lot of bad information on-line, so you need to be careful about what you read and follow.

Here is the "Contact Acer" site.

Can anyone help - PC world want to charge me 180 to fix it - that is back up data onto an external hard drive which I would have to buy, then they say I need to buy system recovery disks from Acer - and then I lost the plot!
If they can get to back up the data -how is it they cannot system restore to a month ago?
the lap top will switch on then goes into the sytem start up - then it picks up the probelm,goes through 100% of the fix then starts all overagain.It ios running vista 18 months old. the last time it worked was when someone was on Facebook.
Any ideas?

A:ACER 5520 - won't start up keeps trying to fix itself - over and over again

try an boot into safe mode - as it boots tap F8 you should get a menu
see if you can get into safe mode

Backing up the data,
on a good PC with a CD writer and CD
download UBUNTU www.ubuntu.com
now download the ISO
right click on the ISO and burn to CD - to make a bootable CD
put that CD into the faulty machine - see if it will boot up the CD
(you may need to get into the bios of the PC , using F2 or Del key to get into setup bios - which key to use should come on the screen as you boot , you then need to change the boot order to boot CD first )

Now on booting the UBUNTU cd you should get a menu which says run from CD DO NOT install
if that runs - you should be able to see your windows harddrive - and with a USB harddrive installed - copy any data over

Yeah, the same thing happens with the battery and the adapter.
Once the machine turns on it runs all fine. The only problem is with it turning on, sometimes it starts up immediatey and sometimes it takes from somewhere between 1 minute to 10 minutes.

Someone suggested to open it up and check the power switch but since I'm new to this I don't wanna risk anything.

Every time I turn it one it shows the start up Acer screen for about 3 seconds then immediately shows an error that reads: "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: <Windows root>\system32\hal.dll Please re-install a copy of the above file".

Also, everytime i try to use the recovery option by pressing ALT f-12 it takes me to the recovery screen but does not allow me to even choose a recovery option. There is no disc drive but I do have a flash drive available if that file is in fact download-able. Or if anyone has a recovery disc that can be transferred to a flash drive that would be great. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi, ALT + F10 when pressed at start up should bring up the Acer eRecovery environment.

At the Acer eRecovery screen
Choose the Recovery Actions - select Next.
Choose the Restore option.
There may be two to choose from, System Restore/Recovery - Reinstall Application/Drivers.
Choose System Restore/Recovery.

But all of your data and files will be lost and overwritten.

To try and save any needed data and files use a USB External DVD Drive - similar to one shown here.

Hi efrain. Welcome to TSF!

Do you have your XP system CD? If so, try booting with it and select REPAIR when you get that option. That will bring you to the Recovery Console. When you get to the command window prompt, type "fixboot" and then "fixmbr" and then type "exit". Try rebooting your system and see if that works for you.

Good day!

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.

A friend asked me to help him with this problem: He's got a Acer Aspire X1300 with a Win 7 Professional installed which hangs up at start up.
What can you see is the Windows Logo and "Starting Windows" coming up and then a dark screen and nothing happens.
I've tryied to re-install Win 7 booting from a DVD but it just won't start (never seen something like that before). System Recovery and all other trics from Acer do not work either.
The only solution I can see is to format the partition C somehow...any ideas?

Thanks

A:Windows 7 don't start on my Acer Aspire X1300

Hello bobr, welcome to Seven Forums!



For a partition specific wipe (secure erase) of just the C: partition use Option Three of this tutorial at the link below.

Partition Wizard : Use the Bootable CD


If there's nothing on the entire Hard Disk Drive (HDD) that needs saved, you can use the Windows 7 installer using diskpart to wipe the whole HDD, see this tutorial.

SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation



If you need to copy out the data first have a look at this third tutorial.

I have a Acer Aspire 1800 laptop using Windows XP Home edition. The Windows does not start and when I switch on the laptop I get a blank screen. I have Recovery CDs which are in two parts. I have tried to put the CDs but no joy. Grateful if someone could help me, please.

A:Windows XP does not start on Acer Aspire 1800

In order to use the Recovery CD's, you would need to boot directly from them.

To do this, go into your BIOS, and switch your Boot Priority to boot from the CD drive before the Hard drive.

How can I find out what's wrong with the compter without having to spend a fortune on diagnostics. Don't now if it is worth sending it to a place to fix it and be charged an arm and a leg and maybe be better buying a new one.

Thanks!!!!

I click OK and it shuts down then starts back up with the Setup is starting services then back to the same eroor message above. Any suggestions?

A:[SOLVED] Start up of Acer Aspire 7551

Hello,

An option is to return to factory settings.

1.Restart the computer

2.When the logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.

3.When prompted with a boot screen, hit the Enter key.

4.After the system recovery program has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the operating system.

If the ability to reinstall from the previous method is not available or fails during the recovery, recovery of the operating system will need to be from Recovery Media.

1.Insert the disk labeled System CD into the computer's disk drive and restart the computer.

2.When the logo appears on the screen, press the F12 key repeatedly.

3.Select either CDROM or DVD as the boot device, this may vary depending on the system.

4.When prompted for the Recovery CD, remove the System CD and insert the Recovery CD.

Note: If there are multiple Recovery CDs, please insert the first Recovery CD.
5.After the system recovery program has loaded follow the prompts to reinstall the operating system.

Hello.
I've already got a random BSOD on my laptop with Win 7 64 bits.

A:ACER 5520 - BSOD Windows 7 64 bits

Hi,

This is what your 'System Health Report.html' file says near the top:


Code:
Symptom: The Security Center has not recorded an anti-virus product.
Cause: The Security Center is unable to identify an active anti-virus application. Either there is no anti-virus product installed or it is not recognized.
Resolution: 1. Verify that an anti-virus product is installed.
2. If an anti-virus product is installed and functioning configure Security Center to stop monitoring anti-virus status.
This won't necessarily be the cause, but it's probably something you should check out since some people post health reports which say they have no anti-virus installed even if they do. Just to be safe you should probably check your anti-virus (if any) is up-to-date and running.

I also found a '0x80070002' result code pertaining to the following:


Code:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Windows\WindowsUpdate\\
Were you trying to install (or have already installed) some Windows Updates recently before you experienced the BSOD? If so do you remember what these were?

Furthermore perhaps some more information would be of help, in order to help us to better assist you. For example do you remember what the exact BSOD error was? Did you have enough time to read this error code before your computer restarted itself? Did this happen the one time or does it keep on happening? Other than Windows Updates (if any) did you make any major changes to your system recently (e.g. new software/hardware installation/uninstallation), or did you notice anything else unusual happen such as a system crash before you had this problem, or did this appear to happen out of the blue?

Hope this helps.


Regards,

Jon.

Also sometimes goes to a black screen saying repair, click repair and it just keeps going back the the same screen, can't even start it in safe mode.

not had it long so if I can't fix it myself then I'll take it back but would like an idea what's going on!
Acer didn't supply a disc with it, it's all preinstalled and the operating system is vista home premium.

I'm having the same maddening journey it sounds like most others. Successes initially with several properly installed (and de-installed) codecs, but finally absolutely no signs left in the registry. Tried both Acer and RealTek. I am starting to be convinced that some of these flaky "driver tool sites" have actually created a worm or trojan to infect certain machines. I like the ones who have automated page scripts which "update" the driver signature to the current date. Duh. I was born at night, but not LAST night.

Are you able to boot into Advanced Boot Options at all?

If so, then try Last Know Good Configuration.

Failing that please refer to this tutorial:

A:can anyone help, Acer aspire m1610 or acer aspire t180

First, each model has multiple hardware specifications. So I have no way of knowing the hardware configurations of either unit that you have.

Second, upgrades are limited on OEM PC's. Your only options will be RAM and the video card. And in the case of the video card, the power supply may not be able to handle a decent card.

My Dell Inspiron 5520 will respond when I press the power button, will flash all the LEDs and then just shut down. The whole process takes about 6 seconds. The fan starts up but nothing is displayed on the screen and there are no weird beeps. Any ideas on what is happening or how to get it to complete booting up?

I got this in December of 2012 and have had very few other problems with it
 

A:Dell Inspiron 5520 Will not start up

Are you comfortable with disassembling the laptop? Really the only thing we can test is removing the Hard Drive, RAM, and DVD player.

First I would try the HD and DVD to see if either of those are stopping it from powering for what ever reason, and you will still get something on the screen and see if it boots.

Once you remove RAM you are not going to get anything on the screen, it doesn't POST(Power-On Self-Test) it will fail guaranteed, but you "SHOULD" get beeps, however the problem with that is ensuring the MB is actually causing the Beep, and if it's not it'll just do the same thing regardless, it's best to have some spare RAM that you know works to test with. (Same speeds and kind, need to be sure) The reason for this is to make sure that it's not RAM but you're not just getting the same issue.

Putting in some spare RAM will at least allow you to ensure it's not just the RAM chips, one thing to try if you have multiple sticks of RAM is try each stick separately, and in each slot to make sure it's not one stick or one slot causing and issue.

The only other things to make sure is the power that is getting to the laptop is clean power. Two ways to do this as well, firstly you can test the power supply using a Multi-Meter if you have one and know how to use it. You can check the voltages on the power supply, Connect to the wall and test the first portion to ensure 120V clean power, then if its good, test it going through the transformer and check the bottom of the laptop (Possibly underneath the battery) for the proper Voltage and Amperage. Test with the multimetre and see if it matches, if its not giving proper power it can cause tons of issues.

The other option is to buy a universal power supply and change the voltage to match the laptop and then try it. Due note that not ALL universals work with all models of laptop and that it's not the recommended way of power, it's best to use the adapter designed by the company, specially for HP's and Dell's as they seem to be much more proprietary than other companies.

My Dell 15R 5520 Laptop only starts up sporadically. When I can get it to start up, it functions properly. Sometimes I can even restart it successfully.
The rest of the startup attempts (75%) result in the buttons above the keyboard lighting up and then going dark followed by 7 beeps.
After some research, the seven beeps indicates a CPU issue.
So far, I've done the following, without resolution.
-Ran System Restore back to before the latest Windows update.
-Ran the startup diagnostics (no errors found)
-Reseated the processor chip and replaced the thermal compound
-Reseated the memory chips, as well as replaced them
-Tried a different power adapter
I'm stumped since I cannot identify the specific problem, and since the problem isn't consistent.
Any suggestions/advice/help would be greatly appreciated!

The laptop is an Acer Aspire 5742, IntelCore i3-380M
I am attaching a few pictures of what comes on the screen when I turn it on.
Even in safe mode it does not let me log in, it attempts repairs, it fails and then goes to the black screen with the white cursor.
If I try to start windows normally it loads the logo and then goes to the black screen.
Yesterday, in an attempt to do repairs it was replacing invalid security drivers or something like that and it was taking ages so I had to turn it off.
For the last week it took very long to start up, failing to configure windows but it would eventually let me log in.
Since yesterday I am only getting the black screen. it is windows 7 by the way.

i need a very quick reply please

I restarted my computer like normal and for whatever reason the computer is now stuck at the Acer boot screen. I try to press DEL to enter Setup and I even tried pressing F12 to go into the Boot Setup, but for whatever reason the computer does not respond to anything.

To shut it off I have to hold down the power button and eventually it shuts off.

Stuff to know:
- I have a wireless mouse and keyboard being used on that desktop.. Should I perhaps try to plug in a corded mouse and keyboard?
- I'm running on Windows 7 Ultimate.
Thanks

A:Acer Aspire M3203 and Acer's Windows 7 upgrade software

Are you booting the Acer Win7 Upgrade Media DVD to do a clean install? You can do that to get the cleanest possible install, without the corruption that is imported from Vista in an in-place Upgrade.

The installer is driver-complete, but afterwards any missing drivers which don't quickly arrive in Optional Windows Updates can be found on the apps/drivers CD along with favorite apps like Works, cam, etc. Others can be found on the Acer Support Downloads webpage for your model computer, Adobe (flash, Reader) and Java (runtime, free Ofc suite) sites.

Hi everyone I'm at my wits end! I cannot get my webcam to work. I have tried numerous options posted in different forums and on websites but nothing seems to work. Even when I went to the Acer update driver search site. When I added my model number I got about a dozen driver options but as soon as I put in my OS Windows 7 (64 Bit) it came back with no drivers. I've noticed in a number of forums that peoples webcams where working fine in Windows XP but when they updated to Windows 7 they lose the ability for their computers to find their webcams. Is this an inherent problem with Windows 7 and is there anyway to fix it short of buying an external webcam. Surly there must be a way to get it to work !!!

To start off, this laptop has been horrible since the day I got it. I can't even believe how slow it is; it lags doing even the simplest tasks.That aside; I was prompted to update an AMD Catalyst Radeon (something like that) software, so I did. The screen went black and nothing happened for almost 10 hours.I eventually decided to turn off the power. Now that I turn it back on it's just stuck on "Acer explore beyond limits" screen.It has been like this for days now. I've tried turning it on and off again several times. It's just stuck at that screen.What do I do? How do I fix this? I need this computer for school.

The only way I can get it to recognize is by power cycling the pen (taking the battery out and putting it back in), or by power cycling the laptop. I replaced the battery so I know it is not a battery issue. I have an Acer Aspire R13 (Model #R7-371T), and recently upgraded to Windows 10.  I was having this problem earlier with Win 8.1, but it seems to have gotten worse with Windows 10.  I have updated to all the most recent drivers.  Very frustrating. Any thoughts?

I have tried everything I can think of I have already read through a few other threads with the same issue but none of the fixes work for me It gets to the acer screen logo not boot Acer will Acer Aspire E15 past loads that little loading circle then it just goes black I have tried pushing Alt F and it got to the acer screen and said please wait then the screen went black again I have installed Windows on a USB drive and have went into the bios and enabled the boot menu as well as change the order Acer Aspire E15 will not boot past Acer logo of the boot to the USB This got me a bit closer but still stuck After about minutes it finally went to a purple screen and a window popped up asking to install I selected my language and clicked install it went to another screen that says setup is starting and it's been sitting this way for about minutes now I'm out of ideas Don't have a clue why this is going on This is a friend of mines computer he said he was in the middle of playing a game and the laptop froze then something came up and then it shut off When it booted up it wouldn't load past the acer screen

A:Acer Aspire E15 will not boot past Acer logo

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.

Is this normal for a 6 month old machine..? I can't update windows 10. The message says that there's not enough room to update windows 10, so I buy a 32 gig card....still it says theres not enough space,,,so I try a 32gig usb stick....still no joy.....So I take it back to PC World where I'm treated like a child and told that they won't take it back...they'll just send it back to Acer to have windows 8 put on ...??!  and did I realise it was a cloudbook and NOT a laptop...!! Left the shop with steam coming out of my ears...so, my question is this....Has anyone out there succeeded in updating their windows 10 cloudbook Because that despite having owned and worked with computers for over 30 years I cannot solve this problem....(Nor have I experienced such poor ill informed salespeople as I have in PC World....but that's another story...

Are you trying to download and install Acer Care Center because you lost the recovery partitions?If they are gone, nothing you can download will put them back.You will need to go to the Acer store, click ERECOVERY and purchase restore media.

I finally found a soluation after months of wondering why this is happening. It's my Virgin Media connection, the modem/router as when I connected to my phones wifi, teethering, Acer Care Center instantly updated so something within Virgin Medias network is blocking connectivity. I did try the Virgin Media's router as cause by diabling firewall etc. but with no joy I gave up but didn't try another connection until just now with tethering where as stated problem is sorted. I will report this to Virgin Media and post back anything relevant to this.
