my acer laptop won't turn on

Q: my acer laptop won't turn on

My laptop is Acer Aspire E1 531.
When I press the power button on, it turns on and the acer logo comes on.
But it doesn't further load to the starting page. It's stuck to the acer logo page.
You can hear the fan sound, I've tried taking out the battery for 2 mins and holding down the power button but it still doesnt work. Also pressing F1,F2,F3.. does nothing to it.
When I pressed Ctrl+Alt+Delete,it goes on to the boot menu page, but it doesn't show any option. It says 'restart the system'

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 know this has been posted a lot but mine seems to be a little odder than what has been posted. My laptop just shut off one day and will only turn on when the back/bottom of the laptop is not on, which means my motherboard is completely exposed, once I put the back/bottom back on it will not turn on. I thought it might have been the fan, its not brand new fan and still wont turn on. Any help would be awesome!

This is not an easy one to help with without have the laptop in my own hands. You will most likely find that there is a bad connection somewhere that is being broken when the base is fitted. Have a good look at all the ribbon cable connections as one has probably worked loose.

Hi! I have an ACER Aspire 3050 for some reason will not turn on. No lights, no fan, absolutaly nothing will happen. The laptop isn't actually mine, its a friends. I shake it from side to side a little and I can hear a tinking sound like something is loose. I'm going to try and open it up to see if this is the case but if its not, is there any other reason why it just randomly won't turn on anymore?

Thanks for any help!
 

A:Acer Aspire 3050 laptop will not turn on

I think it's best we wait for your reply to what's loose inside!

Make sure battery and power adaptor out
And also hold down the ON button (to disperse all internal voltage)

A:Acer Laptop froze then monitor won't turn on

Hello mashroom and Welcome to TSF,

When you're saying the monitor is blank, is it like that from the minute you turn it on? Or do you still see the machine posting? (The text that shows in the beginning of the boot)

Have you also tried plugging in an external monitor?

Sorry if this is posted in the wrong spot, I'm new. I have an Acer Aspire 7736Z-4088 laptop. I do not remember the year it was purchased, but it has been a few years. This laptop and I have a love-hate relationship with each other. The laptop has sat idle for months because it stopped charging and I could no longer turn it on because the battery was dead. It has stopped charing before and I left it for months until it randomly decided to start charging again. Before it stopped charging the most recent time, the laptop would only charge if the charging cable was in a certain position. The charger I am using is a Targus charger. When plugged into an outlet, the charger light turns on, however when plugged into the laptop, nothing. Is my laptop battery completely useless and needs to be replaced? Or is it something to do with the charger or charging pin?

A:Acer Laptop Stops Powering Up- Wont Turn ON

If you are using an incorrect power adapter it may not be supplying the proper voltage or current to both charge the battery and run the laptop, and that could eventually have damaged the laptop and adapter too. Did you compare the voltage and amperage between the new and old adapters? The voltage and current info is printed on both the adapter AND the bottom of the laptop. Splicing the end on the adapter automatically tells me it wasn't the correct one, maybe the specs match up but I would be surprised if they did.

Almost all laptops will run with no battery.

I'd be leaning toward faulty or incompatible power adapter. Or a broken DC jack in the laptop or damage to the power circuit. Maybe the first thing to try is to take it into small local shop and see if they have a proper power adapter or a compatible universal they can try with the laptop - tell them you want to try it before you buy a replacement adapter from them. Most shops will have universal units or maybe even the correct Acer one as they are pretty common and shoudl be willing to allow you to test it before you buy one from them, big box stores a may or may not be so helpful.

I have an acer aspire 3500 we've had it for quite a few years but its always worked fine. As I was downloading some things of iTunes I left my laptop on on the floor all night and then all the next day. As my laptop is old it needs to be plugged in all the time when it's on because the battery won't work. While I was on it it just turned off and now it won't turn back on the charger has a green light on showing that's working but when plugged in the laptop has no lights on. Please help? Do you think it may of overheated???

A:[SOLVED] Laptop won't turn on (acer aspire 3500)

That is possible, and especially if you set it on a carpeted floor. That overheating generally would cause it to go into shutdown though, and not ruin it.

But if it's quite a few years old, as you say, then it's quite possible that any overheating you might have had could have caused a component to fail. In cases like yours, usually I'd ask if you could remove power, remove the battery, press and hold the power button for 10 seconds, then plug it back into power and try it.

And, of course, the power brick itself could have gone south...even with a green light on so if you have a meter, measure the voltage output of the brick.

Hi there,I bought this All-in-one on 13/3/2016. I was doing my work and finished printing it yesterday night. I then went to the kitchen, leaving in on for about 10 minutes. When I came back, I found that the computer had shut down and refused to turn on even when I tried pressing the power button several times. I have tried changing power sockets in case the sockets were not working and even though the sockets were working, it still did not power on.I searched your discussion for a solution and tried the "remove power and press power button for 30 seconds solution" and it still will not start at all.Are there any other solutions or must I bring the set down for repair? It is on a 3-year warranty.Thanks in advance!

A:Acer Aspire Will not Turn on

At this point, you cannot be sure what it is that has gone bad. It could be the video card, the power supply, the motherboard or both the motherboard and the video card. It is possible an overheated video card went bad, taking the main board with it. One way you could test is to open the computer case and disconnect everything that is disconnectable from the board (except power). Remove video card and other add-in cards; disconnect hard disks, CD/DVD drives, etc. Then see if the computer will power up. If not, you have narrowed the problem to power supply, memory, main board, and processor.

Remove the power supply and take it to a repair shop and have it tested. They will probably do it for free on the prospect of selling one.

As an aside, it seems all expensive, high-end video cards have ten-cent fans. I've actually seen cases where those fans have seized in about a month. In my opinion, all of them should come with two spare fans in the box. They invariably fail and sometimes take the main boards with them. So, for any computer that has a video card requiring a fan to keep it cool, I recommend a secondary fan mounted in the case and pointed directly at the video card's heat-sink.

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

Hi All,

I have an Acer Aspire 5715Z and when i press the power on button, it will turn the fan on, and seem to start booting up, but then nothing and turns off.

There is nothing on the screen at all, infact I dont think the screen even lights up (and yes, I have checked for writing with a torch to make sure its not just the screen or video driver that has gone).

The only light i get is the little power LED, no hard drive light or anything else and then it turns straight off.

Any ideas how to fix this or what part i need to get to repair the problem please?

Thanks

Emma
 

A:Acer Aspire 5715Z won't turn on

I think there may be some hardware issues; but from the info you have given us I am unable to guess what it may be; I'll advise you to take it to Acer if its still under warranty.

You can also try to see whether pressing ALT+F10 does anything (i doubt ACER recovery will work according the above info, but what the hell .. give it a try).

Hello,

My Acer suddenly stopped working. It was working just fine yesterday and I also recently bought a new battery for it (about a month ago), but today it just won't turn on. Is my battery damaged? What's wrong?
 

A:Acer 3500 doesn't turn on!

We might need alittle more info than that. If you can get your hands on a multimeter, take that and test your a/c adapter to make sure it is putting out the proper amount of voltage. If it is, trying removing your battery and turning on the laptop with just the a/c adapter plugged in to it. Also try a different power outlet to plug into. Let us know more detail on anything else that could have possibly happened before.

Also, if all else fails, how old is the laptop? If it is within one year, I know the manufacturer will cover any failing parts (other than the a/c adapter and battery). You can either contact Acer yourself, or bring the laptop to a major retailer, and with proof of purchase (a receipt) they will send it to the manufacturer for you.

When plugged in the blue battery light comes on, when I press the power button several times it will flash the other blue light for a second and then nada. Can't get it to do anything, but seems like the battery is functioning I suppose. I've tried lots of solutions for different problems on the forums but can't find a simliar situation. Tried unplugging and replugging the battery, checked all the connections inside, tried the recovery usb stick and nothing will turn it on. also tried the esc refresh power thing still nothing Any help will be much appreciated.

A:i have a acer c720 it wont charge or turn on

vira,
 
Sorry to hear that you are having charging issues. I'd like to clarify a few things about your post, to make sure I understand what you are trying to explain.
 

"...I call acer customer servise but they say the didnt know what it was so they send a new charge to see if that was the proble but it wasnt."

How was the determination made that this wouldn't fix the problem?
 

"I call acer again they told me that i could send the chromebook back but it could be a possibility that i could pay for anything they fix which i think is not fair cause i have a year guarranty, and it was about three months that i have bought it."

The technician you spoke with was probably just giving the standard disclaimer, but they also give the same disclaimer if the description of the problem sounds like it might be something that is outside of the stadard manufacturer's warranty.
 

"so before sending the chromebook i tried to plug it in to see if it would work and to my surprised the charging led turn on and minutes later the chromebook turn on and it was charging fine. my happiness didnt last long cause three days later it did the same thing it wont turn on or charge again."

This sounds like a little bit of charge left in the battery, not an issue fixing itself unfortunately.
 
It sounds to me like there is a charging problem, which based on your post here doesn't sound like anything that is outside of the standard manufacturer's warranty. I'd love to see if I can help you out, but am I missing something in your post that wasn't explained to the technician you spoke with?

When the charger is plugged in the charging light turns on to indicate it is charging (orange) but other than that it is completely unresponsive.I have tried removing the battery and plugging it into the power source like that and still nothing happens.I read somewhere that hibernation mode can cause prolonged periods of unresponsiveness in Acer Aspires and that it should be disabled but I couldn't find any information on how to get it to turn on.Any and all help will be appreciated.

Acer AST180-UD400B computer turns on when I apply power to it. Before I had
to hit the button in front of the computer. I prefer to use the front button on the
computer. Is that a window vista or bio's problem. If it is bios, how do I reset
it and do I need a new battery?
Thank you,
 

A:Acer start to turn on when power is applied

It is usually a power supply or motherboard hardware issue. Though if you buy a replacement for either (depending on which is causing it) that is the same manufacturer and model, it will probably have the same problem.

I have 14 computers at work that all have the same power supply and motherboard, and they all have this issue. However, once plugged in, the front power switch does work. We just live with it.

acer aspire t135 tower taking a min to turn on, I'm suspecting faulty electrolytic capacitors may be the delay for the power up issue.

after it's plugged in / power sw is pressed I was chatting away with somebody and then all of a sudden it started up, this is also the case with the pwr button jumper removed.

I just want get a second opinions on this, seems to me there could be a faulty capacitor charging up on the board?

I have tested the power supply everything seems okay with the PSU when using a PSU tester which ran for 5 mins. no issues there.
 

A:acer T135 taking a min to turn on after pwr button pressed

I think it could still be the PSU, the testers don't put them under load like a motherboard does.
Can you swap in a known good PSU to test ?

A:Acer Aspire S7-392 wont turn on blinking power led

tried it didnt work. I have decided that its about time i put it into trash. The thing has been in and out of repair shop over 2 years. I have never had laptop that broke so easily without fault from user. Did you know First time i bought this with in 3 weeks speakers stopped working. than after 2 months whenever i turn it on it does disk check up. and into 6 months the whole thing died. it was under warranty so sent it to acer repair shop. got it back every thing worked at first. but in first week speaker stopped working again along with 1 usb port. within the 2 years i had this already spent enough for a new ultrabook. Even though my friends said acer is not a good, the thing looked so nice, so bought it anyway. I learned my lesson will never buy an acer product.

Hi, I unplugged my computer a couple of weeks ago and returned today to turn it back on, unfortunately getting no response at all. Ive tried a different power cable and a different outlet. I've followed directions given to somebody else on here, unplugging....holding power button for 40 seconds....plugging back in and trying to power on, with no luck. The computer is about 3 years old. Is there any advice you can give me?
Thank you!

My Uncle bought an Acer Aspire V15 Nitro Black Edition VN7-591G-792U. He sent it to me in the Philippines. It is brand new, I got it from March. Windows 10 was installed and was updating like normal. I used it for about only 2 months before like a few days ago where it turned off by itself and now it won't turn on. I started up the laptop, everything was normal and I opened up Google Chrome. I was browsing Facebook and it turned off by itself, there's no lights on the side even if it was plugged in. I tried disconnecting and connecting the battery, holding the power button, holding the battery reset button, holding them both, and it does nothing. Anyone has a solution for this? Sometime this month, we will be going to the US amd my uncle will probably have to replace or fix it since he still has warranty. Thanks!

Hello everyone, I have an HP Envy j100t which I purchased in 2014. ever since yesterday it's been starting but the screen remains pitch black, no display at all. It won't get to start up page, just remains a blank dark screen even though the power light is on and there's no battery issue because it was on charge all night and the AC adopter is still in.   I keep on having to get to get to the BIOS recovery screen, letting that update, and then it proceeds to restart. However when it restarts, it never gets to start up and there is the same dark screen- no display.  I have to always update BIOS, take out the battery and AC adapter, put them back in, and then it will start. Or sometimes even that whole process might not restart it.  Please help!

Hi,

I have an Acer TravelMate 370 and i'm having problem in using its wireless connectivity function. The hardware is okay same as the driver. It is just that if I try to turn on the launch key for wireless LAN the LED doesn't lit up. And even if i turned on the wireless radio from windows network driver nothing happens. I still can't connect to our wireless network. And it always says that I should turn on the device before I could use it. I really need your help on this. Thanks a lot
 

A:Couldn't turn on Acer travelmate 370 wifi connectivity button

first off ring up acer tech support and see if they can fix it, maybe a defective wifi module (im assuming its inbuilt)
does it pick up any signal at all? maybe try another wifi network; or is it just dead? can you dig around bios and see if there's any thing to enable regarding the wifi, also same thing inside device manager

hi Unknown Soldier here. My real name is Harris, im from Singapore and im currently facing this issue regarding the fact that whenever i start my Acer Aspire Z5610 touch screen computer, the screen always turns black, and thus not allowing the computer to respond or start up. Though it works sometimes and i get to use it quite often by restarting it many times, the same problem randomly strikes back and i have to go through the same old frustration of restarting it many times to get it to work properly. The computer does not work now so i really need some suggestions to get it to function normally other than send it for repair which would waste a lot of money and time. My problem definitely has got nothing to do with whatsoever video or graphics card issue. Click on the attachment below to see the computer that i use. Thank you

The older Aspire Ones are unlikely to have drivers to let them run on Win 7 and XP's end of life is 04/08/2014. I had two Acer Aspire Ones and both were garbage (as were the Acer desktop, keyboard and mouse I had). Personally, I don't feel it's worth messing with.

Unless your laptop is the same model as you girlfriend's - or at least from the same laptop series - your recovery disk won't work, mainly because it will try to install the wrong drivers.

I think your best bet is to try to get it fixed under warranty. You may not need the receipt, you can check the laptop's warranty status here :- https://www.acer-apac.com/acer_web/

Used the laptop normally while it was plugged in. Shut down for the night. The next morning nothing happened when I hit the power button. Machine did not turn on, no light on...nothing. No previous problems powering up. Generally maintain the battery charge between 70-100%; often use it while power cord is plugged in.  First, I want to know if there are options I can try before doing a reset that will clear the memory.

A:laptop won't turn on

It looks like you are not able to Power ON the Notebook and wanting to fix the issue Please perform below shown steps to find out if this is a Software or Hardware Issue:1. Remove all Peripherals and Cables, Disconnect them and try to Power ON the Unit 2. Check for LED Light Status and ensure Power Button spring action is normal 3. Swap with a known good Power Cord and Power Adapter 4. Incase no Adapter is available, Check if the Power Adapter is slightly warmNote: This will give us a hint that the Power Adapter might be fine 5. Do you know if the Notebook was in Battery or Power Adapter Mode when you used it for the last timeNote: Ensure there is no liquid spillage or Power Outage 6. Check if the AC Adapter Port is loose/broken Note: If the Notebook doesn't Power ON even with a known good Power Adapter this confirms the Hardware fault with System Board or the DC Power Circuit  Hope this helps, for any further queries reply to the post and feel free to join us again  **Click the White Thumbs Up Button on left to say Thanks**Make it easier for other people to find solutions by marking a Reply 'Accept as Solution' if it solves your problem. Thank You,K N R K

Not sure where this topic belongs...

I have an almost new 'emachines' laptop, running Vista. It was working fine, and I was using it to download programs as suggested in the forums here, then transferring them to my desktop which was (and still slightly is) sick. However, after I downloaded 'gmer', and accidentally caused it to run (in fact, due to the mousepad's excessive sensitivity, I think I triggered it twice) while trying to unzip it (so I could copy it for transfer to the other unit), my laptop froze, would not shut down, and so I had to let it on until the battery ran out. Then, after hooking up the AC power, it would not turn on. The blue LCD beneath the power-on button comes on, but nothing happens when I turn it on. What can I do? This unit is extremely important for me, as I use it at work daily.

A:Laptop won't turn on

I don't have a solution to your problem, but GMER is a diagnostic program. It doesn't make any changes, so even, if you ran it, it couldn't do anything to your computer.
